I use a combination of therapeutic approaches to help people navigate the challenges of this complex world, including Cognitive Behavior Therapy, Solution Focused Brief Therapy and Mindfulness techniques.
You don’t have to handle everything on your own. Working with a therapist who you feel comfortable talking to, who makes you feel you are not alone, and who listens to you with authentic compassion and respect can help you see options and pathways you did not realize were there. We all can benefit from a guide to walk with us through the more difficult and confusing times of our lives.

Are you feeling anxious, alone, depressed, or not finding a purpose in life? Perhaps you lost a loved one. Maybe you had a relationship break-up or job loss. Is your present relationship suffering? Trouble communicating? Have you or your partner experienced a life-threatening injury or illness such as a traumatic brain injury (TBI) or a stroke? Since the injury or illness, do you experience frustration with your recovery? Have you lost hope? We can work together to decrease your anxiety, increase your motivation, and work toward feeling better. Sometimes it takes another perspective when we are going through rough times.

The truth is, my ideal client cannot be defined by a particular diagnosis, gender, or concern; if you're ready to grow, then let's get started! I help my clients recognize where they are, including their strengths, areas in need of improvement, and where they would like to go; and I work with them to get there! I prioritize setting attainable short and long term goals that we can measure and work on achieving. While I specialize in working with young adults with anxiety or depression, life transition issues, and/or LGBTQIA-related struggles, I have experience and work with individuals of all ages and mental health concerns.

Rational Emotive and Cognitive Behavioral therapies are my practice methodologies.
Life is too short to let the everyday burdens we face create turmoil, and gain control over our emotions. Our feelings can control us or we can learn to control them. A situation, person, place, or thing only has the power to control our feelings...if we let it. It is our responsibility (and only ours) to control our feelings and behavior. Thus, we can find true contentment and serenity.

In my practice I take a collaborative approach with adult clients. Together we seek balance, change and acceptance. These factors contribute to achievement of pleasure and fulfillment in life and relationships. My strength is that I incorporate the theory of cognitive therapy with the concept that past experiences and interactions have an influence on current beliefs and behavioral patterns. Through this approach, I am able to come to a more complete conceptualization and establish trust and rapport with my clients which enables them to engage in the therapeutic process more fully.

I utilize EMDR, Sandplay, Spirituality, Body Work, and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy to help my clients.
I am a therapist who believes strongly that talk therapy sometimes just isn't enough. Sometimes when a person experiences difficulties in life, their defenses can often get in the way. This is especially true when you are a child, have experienced trauma, or struggle with Eating Disorders. Sandplay therapy and other approaches can help break-down those barriers and promote healing.

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.
