My therapeutic approach utilizes cognitive behavioral therapy, motivational interviewing, and solution focused therapy to appropriately tailor to individuals needs and goals.
Are you feeling stressed, defeated, or overwhelmed? Sometimes, we find ourselves feeling “stuck” and unable to move forward—or in any direction. Feeling as if you’re going nowhere, despite energy output, can be discouraging and defeating. Trust me, I understand. Everyone encounters challenging times in their lives. I think we can all agree that you never know what life will throw at you. The journey to healing can be lonely; but I am here to walk with you every step of the way. I can assure you that I will provide a safe place for you to express yourself, free from judgement.

Life can be challenging at times, but I believe with the right tools and a helpful listener we can make it a little easier. I’m passionate about helping clients build resilience and quiet those negative thoughts that make them doubt their potential. I enjoy motivating my clients to be the best version of themselves through positive psychology and cognitive-behavioral therapy. Once a client can rationalize through their negative thoughts, they can then change their behavior.

Cognitive Behavioral (CBT) Therapists

How does cognitive behavioral therapy work?

Cognitive behavioral therapy works by exploring how your thoughts affect your emotions and experiences. CBT helps you identify distortions in your thinking. For example, you may tend to jump to the worst case scenario catastrophizing or think in extremes (all-or-nothing thinking). A therapist can teach you how to push back against those thoughts to ultimately change your feelings and behavior for the better. They can also provide coping skills to better deal with stressors and challenges.

When do I know to seek treatment with cognitive behavioral therapy?

It’s reasonable to consider cognitive behavioral therapy if you struggle to manage difficult emotions or behaviors to such an extent that you are not getting the most out of life on a day-to-day basis. If you want a shorter term, concrete, skills-based approach, CBT is a great option. (By contrast, other types of therapy may devote more time to exploring your past and its effects.) The decision to seek CBT also depends on the condition you’re treating; CBT is an effective treatment for anxiety, depression, trauma, and many other disorders.

How can I find a cognitive behavioral therapist for someone else?

To find a cognitive behavioral therapist for someone else, you may want to begin by discussing the person’s problem, researching cognitive behavioral therapy, and assessing whether the approach is the right fit. You could then reach out to a few cognitive behavioral therapists in this directory, explain the scenario, have a consultation with those available, and determine who could be a good match.

Why is CBT such a popular form of therapy?

CBT has become a popular form of therapy because it is effective and accessible. Robust research has demonstrated that CBT is an effective treatment for many mental health conditions. And CBT can be learned in relatively few sessions, which means that many people can engage in the process, afford it, and see results quickly. It involves learning concrete skills such as disputing unhelpful thoughts; these skills can also be taught and spread widely.
