By integrating the principles of evidence based practices such as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and Short Term Solution Focused Therapy into our work together, I can help you to build skills towards sustainable change.
I am a strengths-based clinician providing a compassionate and non-judgmental culture of care for the treatment of anxiety and depression often associated with the challenges of daily life. My practice is based on the fundamental belief that all individuals deserve to feel respected, accepted and "heard." As such, my clinical approach to therapy is client centered and starts with building a trusting relationship so that we may work together to help you attain the quality of life that you desire. To move forward in the direction we want to go takes only one small manageable step to get started. Therapy will then move at your own pace

As a clinician who practices cognitive behavioral therapy ( CBT ), I help you do that by teaching you to assess and make changes to your thoughts, feelings, and behaviors.
I graduated from Caldwell University in 2016 with a master’s degree in mental health counseling. I’m currently working in an outpatient setting, working individually with children (5+ years of age), adolescents, and adults. I work with individuals struggling with anxiety, depression, post-traumatic stress disorder, attention deficit disorders, life changes, conflict in interpersonal relationships, bipolar disorder, and borderline personality disorder. While I do work with clients with a wide array of symptoms and diagnoses, my specialty is working with clients who have experienced trauma.

In addition to cognitive -behavioral therapy, I also offer Bible-based, Christian counseling for those who are seeking this type of guidance in their counseling.
We are currently living in a challenging time. The unprecedented demands of living through the COVID-19 pandemic; "shelter-in-place," social isolation, altered work & education via ZOOM, financial hardship, and more, has left many people experiencing new emotional struggles. The experience of loss due to sickness and death of loved ones, friends, or coworkers, has also created a sense of "emotional overload" for many. Talking to a compassionate professional can help you get through this difficult period. I am available to help you navigate these uncharted waters, as you seek to "land" on solid ground.

I work from an attachment therapy perspective, but also do cognitive behavioral therapy ( CBT ), use mindfulness, humor, and other flexible approaches to working with my clients.
I became a therapist years ago with the thought that I may be able to have some small part in other people's journey in a way that was helpful, supportive, and encouraging. I try my absolute best to do that every day and for every client. I believe that therapy is a facilitative process with no one being the expert on how to live your life better than you. My role is to help you find the best version of yourself and work with you so you may become that self. Additionally, I work from an integrative approach (when desired by the client) to use nutrition, physical health, and holistic approaches to help heal from the inside out.

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.
