My approach to therapy is flexible and integrates multiple modalities, primarily Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy ( CBT ).
Adulting can be an emotional rollercoaster – a time filled with career and academic highs, depressing lows, and outstretched uncertainty. The young clients I work with seek therapy for all the emotional turmoil life throws at you: pressures to succeed, anxiety, trouble sleeping, perfectionism, and rocky relationships. Others I see come to therapy with a broader wish to understand their own nature, to see themselves and timeworn habits more clearly. In each case, my goal is not to simply fix problems in your life, but rather to help you gain control when it seems like the world around you is spinning.

I integrate elements of CBT , DBT, and Motivational Interviewing into my counseling approach while also embracing the healing power of humor and engaging the client at their own pace.
My approach to counseling is driven by the belief that each person’s life experience contributes to a personal and powerful story. Through conversation and active listening, I guide clients through the process of uncovering pieces of their story to see how they fit together. Informed by my lived experience as a queer person, I recognize the necessity of approaching counseling through an intersectional, antiracist lens. I am cognizant of external factors that influence life experiences and therefore I apply a feminist, multicultural perspective to my therapeutic approach.

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.
