I specialize in cognitive behavioral therapy for children, teenagers, and adults. This method is structured and practical, and involves teaching individuals how to identify, question, and alter unhelpful and problematic thoughts. Exposure exercises, experiments, and mindfulness strategies are also used when appropriate to help challenge old beliefs and reinforce new, healthy ones. The process is highly collaborative and efficient; many individuals report significant improvement within 8-12 sessions. Common problems treated include: stress, worry, depression, panic attacks, OCD, phobias, procrastination, public speaking anxiety, unusual perceptions, difficulty regulating emotions, social anxiety, and difficulty adjusting to life changes.
