I combine Schema Therapy, CBT , DBT, Relational and Attachment Therapies that work on many levels and create lasting change.
Getting to the core of why you think, act, and behave the way you do is the key to creating the life you want — the life you’re meant to live. If you’re someone who’s felt stuck, keeps coming back to the same destructive patterns, or has tried therapy before but didn’t gain lasting change, you have come to the right place.

Trained in Dialectical Behavior Therapy from Behavioral Tech, I treat both adolescents and adults who struggle with a variety of emotional and behavioral issues. DBT is a skills based program that has been effective in teaching individuals to replace destructive behaviors with more effective skills. The ultimate goal of DBT is to decrease suffering by increasing behaviors that are consistent with a life worth living.

Do you have trouble getting through the day, feeling tired or discouraged? Maybe you’re going through the motions but aren’t sure why. Many people I work with have felt overwhelmed, stressed, or just stuck. You may have found temporary coping skills that have worked to get you this far. But life’s about more than just surviving each day with the least amount of pain. I help people who are struggling with depression, anxiety, and stress, and are ready for a change. I believe you have a purpose and deserve to experience a more fulfilling life. You can learn to stop fighting and become more excited and hopeful about the future.

There are so many profiles and acronyms after people's names on this website, and you just want some help with a mental health issue, life stressors, or maybe you're not entirely sure what you need help with. Perhaps the pandemic has just rocked your world, and things haven't quite gotten back to where it used to be for you. And you're here because a friend or family member encouraged you to look for some help, but now, it's kind of overwhelming with all of these profiles and degrees and specialities.

My view on successful psychotherapy is that it provokes insight, motivation and productivity for you, not only in session but out in life. Together we create a purely confidential, client-focused relationship to distinguish your desired outcomes. Then, using a blend of mind-body and cognitive -behavioral techniques, we explore your thoughts and how they shape the way you feel and behave. We also develop new patterns of thought and behaviors to create the way you want your life to be. Lifestyle behaviors such as diet, exercise, self-care and social interaction also come into play as they shape the whole person.

In my twenty years of working in the mental health field, I've learned that it is not the situation that can render us helpless, but the meaning we create about the situation. The judgments we make about ourselves and others can make a situation worse, creating anxiety, depression, or undue stress. I specialize in providing therapeutic interventions to decrease self defeating patterns and negative self-talk. You will be engaged in a partnership as treatment goals are identified to personalize your care. I specialize in the following therapies: DBT, CBT , EMDR, Mindfulness Meditation, Hypnotherapy, and Imago Couple Therapy.

I use psychodynamic, cognitive behavioral, and solution-focused approaches.
When first getting to know one another, we’ll talk about what you hope to accomplish as well as any reservations you may have or be experiencing. We’ll spend time talking about what’s led you here and identify some tentative goals. “How will you know therapy is working?” “How will you know when things are better, or know that you’ve made progress?” These areas we’ll initially explore and revisit throughout our work together in order to make sure that we continue to travel in the right direction. Our work can be flexible and open or it can be structured and directive. Let’s also talk about your strengths and what you’re doing well!

My techniques draw from CBT , REBT, Positive Psychology, and Mindfulness based theories.
Lets be real, life can be challenging! We get pushed, pulled, bent, but we don't have to break. The necessity for self-care and support is at an all-time high. Finding needed support and a positive outlet can be challenging. Therapy offers tools to assist with turning obstacles and daily challenges into resilience and opportunity for growth. It is an excellent source of support needed to achieve desired change, gain awareness of healthy coping patterns, and assist with establishing a clear pathway to creating a healthy lifestyle and mindset.

My psychotherapy practice is deeply grounded in psychodynamic theory and is guided by attachment-informed, AEDP, and cognitive behavioral therapies.
My style as a psychotherapist is engaging, warm, and reflective, and I place a great emphasis on building trust and connection as the foundation of my clinical work. From there, we can begin to explore difficult and sometimes painful life experiences and understand the emotions beneath it. By paying attention to these experiences and emotional signals, you can better understand yourself, both past and present. I believe, at birth, we are all hard wired for healing and self-repair but we need the support of trusting and caring relationships to access the powerful drive within ourselves to heal, grow, love, and flourish.

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.
