I am certified in CBT, EMDR, anxiety treatment, and trauma treatment.
Maybe others would look at you and think everything is fine, great even - but inside, you struggle. You might consider yourself an over-achiever or people-pleaser, even if you come off as independent. We'll define the main issues in your life, whether based in the past/present/future and identify strategies to help you feel less stressed in the day to day, while also exploring your experiences to gain a deeper understanding of the story of how you came to be who you are, and write the story you want for your life moving forward.

My style incorporates various modalities including CBT, DBT, and psychodynamic therapy.
Ever feel like you’re on autopilot? Moving through life disconnected from your inner guidance and unsure how to reclaim your sense of peace and joy? We live in a culture where everyone is in a rush, and the time to be in flow and reflective isn’t built into our day to day. My intention is to hold a space where you can slow down to meet yourself in new ways and move forward from a place of true self-knowledge. I specialize in working with those who struggle with eating disorders, disordered eating, and body image concerns. I also work with depression, anxiety, mood disorders, and trauma.

Drawing from my 13 years of experience, training, and Rutgers education, I combine cognitive-behavioral techniques, narrative therapy, and motivational interviewing to empower clients in their journey towards healing and transformation.
Over the course of my career, I have learned ways to uniquely connect with individuals across the lifespan. Working with families, adults, and adolescents, has allowed for the curation of best practice approaches that resonate with the individuals who shared their experiences with me. With motivation and support individuals are encouraged to explore their narratives, challenge self-limiting beliefs, and embrace positive change, thereby embarking on a path to improved mental health and if applicable lasting recovery from addiction.

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.
