I am an experienced clinician and have worked with individuals, couples, families, and groups in a variety of settings. I specialize in depression, anxiety, aging-related issues, coping with pain and illness, caregiver stress, life transitions, grief, and trauma and draw on a variety of treatment modalities, including cognitive behavioral therapy, EMDR, and supportive therapy, to address your needs.
We all experience stressful periods. Times of major life transitions disrupt our equilibrium and ability to cope effectively given new situations and circumstances. We can experience anxious or depressed moods, changes in our daily habits, feel overwhelmed or on the verge of panic. We may no longer enjoy the things we used to, the activities, tasks and friends we once held dear. We may notice changes in our sleeping and eating habits and even engage in reckless and dangerous behavior. Life’s path is rarely a straight one, our life's story seldom linear or what we expect and is almost always is complex.
Anxiety and depression can get in the way of enjoying life and reaching your full potential. A trusting, collaborative therapeutic relationship, combined with state-of-the-art, evidence-based treatments, can best help you feel relief and reach your goals. I have expertise in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), both of which are active, problem-focused, effective treatments for a wide range of issues. I tailor treatments to each person's specific needs. I aim to create a safe, comfortable environment in which you can gain the tools needed to feel in control again.
We’ve all felt stuck, trapped, alone at some point in our lives. Whether you’re here because of a loss, change in health, parenting struggles, anxiety, depression, stress, or just looking to feel more fulfilled in life, I thank you for taking that first step. It wasn’t easy getting here, but you’re here and you’re ready to make a change. You have inside, the ability to re-build, to move away from the old way of thinking – those old stories – that are not your words, and to create new connections.
Life is stressful enough and can be even more challenging when you don't have the right person to talk with. It is often hard to gain clarity and find the right direction for yourself when anxiety, depression, and indecisiveness cloud your view. I believe that counseling is a collaborative journey built on trust, communication, and empowerment to help you find peace, wellness, and fulfillment.
