I am trained in EMDR, Trauma Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy as well as Strength Based Counseling and have also worked effectively with clients managing anxiety and panic disorder as well as agoraphobia.
It takes strength to admit we are having difficulty managing problems alone. If you are anxious, depressed, feeling stuck or without hope you are among the many that often turn their lives around with the help of therapy. Processing our issues, prioritizing and developing strength are of tantamount importance. As a therapist I have worked with clients that have struggled with *Bullying *Communication Skills *Conflict Resolution *Coping Skills *Domestic Violence/Abuse *Family Issues *Mood Disorders *Personality Disorders *Phobias/Fears *PTSD/Trauma *Sex Abuse/Trauma *Sports Psychology/Performance Anxiety

I have experience in CBT , DBT, Mindfulness, Somatic, Positive and insight-oriented therapy, which I tailor to the needs of each individual.
My ideal client is motivated to change. They are wanting to be heard, actively engaged and willing to try something new. For many people choosing to seek counseling can be a difficult decision. I believe it takes courage to reach out for guidance and support, which is why I strive to respect clients autonomy, beliefs and values. Counseling is the process of discovering your true self and gaining the courage to seek your own path in life. My role is to facilitate this process using a variety of techniques based on a strong therapeutic relationship.

I offer a cognitive -behavioral therapy approach with adults, and often incorporate internal family systems components and/or dialectic behavioral therapy.
I understand that the most difficult step in therapy can be making the first phone call and scheduling the first appointment. It is also important to feel comfortable and at ease with the person you choose to see for counseling. I aim to create a peaceful, safe space for my clients to explore and process their emotions or life stressors. I enjoy working with clients of all ages, and have professional training in treating both children and adults.

I do so by utilizing CBT , TFCBT, and a collaborative accepting environment as you navigate the challenges and changes life brings.
**PLEASE USE EMAIL FOR MOST EFFICIENT RESPONSE** Life is full of transitions and changes; some are welcome, and some are life shattering. What do you do when the aftermath of these changes is too much to manage? While it is common to feel anxious, overwhelmed, defeated, confused, and uncertain; you don’t have to stay in that place. Defining your new normal after these moments can require support and guidance.

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.
