I have extensive CBT , DBT, MET, and Grief and Trauma training.
Change is hard. Oftentimes, we want things to be different, but do not know how to get there. Good counseling provides a safe place where you can share and process honestly, without being judged or told how to feel or what to do. I strive to provide a comfortable, safe, and supportive environment for emotional and spiritual healing and growth. Whether you are seeking help with life changes, addictive behaviors, painful trauma, navigating grief or loss, infertility, parenting, or spiritual concerns, seeking support is a worthwhile step toward creating a meaningful, satisfying life. I look forward to working with you.

As a result I had to learn how to navigate life's transitions, manage stress and anxiety, overcome trauma and all the while leading my family through it.

We will then begin therapy where we work towards achieving your goals by developing coping skills, processing feelings/thoughts, and using cognitive behavioral therapy and other modalities to get you to the best place.
Are you barely making it through your day? Through your life? You feel like something is missing? Or you cannot let go of something pulling you to the past? A lot of individuals feel this way. People walk around feeling empty, not knowing if they can make it to tomorrow, keeping in trauma and trying to forget the past. What do they all have in common? They keep it in. Depression, anxiety, trauma, addiction, etc. All the labels that get thrown around but are real life realities to a lot of people. How do you work through it? Is holding it in working? Are you able to actually cope? Are you able to function? What do you need? Therapy?

I sometimes offer grief groups and am trained in Mindfulness, CBT , DBT, EMDR, and body based strategies.
I am old enough to know that life does not always lend itself to simplistic answers. At various periods we all find ourselves in difficult circumstances that feel overwhelming, sometimes related to life changing tragedies like death, divorce, new medical diagnosis like cancer, job loss, or catastrophic injury. In these situations your life changes in an instant. There is an avalanche of distressing emotions and life no longer feels solid or stable. As a therapist who has experienced some serious, life changing tragedies, I understand those feelings and am specifically trained in grief and trauma.

I use Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, a proven treatment for reducing anxiety.
Anxiety is the worst. It can steal all your joy and make even the very best things in life feel burdensome. On the outside, everything might appear to be just fine. In fact, you might have achieved a great deal in academics, your career, family life, friendships or life experiences. But behind the scenes is an underlying anxiety that you are desperately trying to avoid with all of this "doing." And this anxiety has left you feeling like you are stuck between the life you are currently living and the life you know is possible. A life free from the anxiety that has prevented you from experiencing real joy and contentment.

Using cognitive behavioral therapy mixed with narrative therapy, I offer an eclectic approach tailored to the needs of each unique client.
Our lives are made up of stories, stories we tell ourselves, believe about ourselves, and stories others tell us about who we are. But maybe your story is not the one you expected, wanted, or worked towards, and you find yourself stuck. It may be pain from the past or difficult situations in the present that are keeping you from moving forward in life. That’s where I can help.

I am nationally rostered in Trauma Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Child Parent Psychotherapy and specialize working with children with multiple needs such as autism or developmental delays.
I believe that therapy should not only be individualized to support the child and family in terms of the challenges they are currently facing, but I also believe therapy should be individualized in terms of the location I serve it. Providing therapy where the need is means that therapy can be delivered in multiple domains such as office, home and childcare settings. My role is to help you and support you in your journey as parents and caregivers through challenging times and transitions. I am a behaviorist that takes on a strength based and family systems approach. I believe that every child has skills and strengths to build on.

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.
