**Due to COVID, there were some intake issues; everything is resolved now and I am able to take calls.** We sometimes find ourselves struggling with major life changes, day-to-day stressors, and physical health issues. These can lead to depression, anxiety, panic, and/or other negative feelings that can be overwhelming and cause disruption in day-to-day functioning and in relationships. Sometimes, these situations and feelings can even trigger traumas from the past, which can lead to further dysfunction. It can be a tough decision to take the step to call a therapist, but it can also be the first step towards taking back your life.

I draw skills from Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and Dialectical Behavioral Therapy in a strength based, person-centered, humanistic manner.
Is your teen anxious, seem “off” or struggling with getting to school? Is your home environment stressful? Navigating life as a teen or young adult can be trying for most, particularly when you add in family stressors, anxiety, school challenges and peer relationships. Oftentimes, teens feel lost or misunderstood and need a safe space to work through those feelings and develop strategies for managing these challenges in a healthy way. I engage my clients in exploring these issues and work with them to better understand how to best respond utilizing skills to manage their emotions, based on their own skill-set and beliefs.

I specialize in a wide array of techniques such as dialectic Behavioral Therapy (DBT), Neuro Linguistic Programing (NLP), Somatic Experiencing (SE), Internal Family System (IFS), Cognitive Behavioral Therapy ( CBT ), Jungian Therapy, Meditation and Mindfulness as well as other ancient Shamanistic practices.
A solution of the past can be the downfall of your present as well. I believe that in order to truly help someone; one must first seek to understand and then to be understood. Treat yourself as if you are someone worth being helped. To succeed in doing so, one must gain a deeper level of self-awareness through connecting the unconscious patterns of today, to the past traumatic events we have experienced. Understanding that the external world is a direct reflection of what is happening in the internal world, your perception can be a deciding factor to a new reality. Your life is what you choose it to be.

I utilize a mix of therapy types including Mindfulness, Internal Family Systems, CBT , DBT, and Integrative Harm Reduction Psychotherapy.
We are all resilient people that are amazing at adapting and changing with our environments. When those places are unstable, unsafe or inconsistent, we figure out ways to survive. These patterns or beliefs can soothe us, keep us in control or help us to express ourselves. However for many of us, they can also become a burden and themselves a source of suffering. A complicated mix of discomfort as well as serving a meaningful function. No wonder it’s so hard to make changes, even when we have every good reason to. Taking on these patterns may seem overwhelming, however we can begin anywhere and set goals that makes sense for you.

I'm trained in ( Cognitive Behavioral, Rational Emotive Behavioral, Dialectical Behavioral and Acceptance and Commitment Therapeutic approaches.
Sometimes simply living life can leave you feeling overwhelmed, and constantly asking "why". Effective counseling offers you the opportunity to confront those insecurities and negotiate that maze of "why" emerging to feel empowered and secure. Are you experiencing depression, anxiety, issues at school or work, grief or trauma, perhaps substances are ruining your world or you need a Impaired Driving Assessment on which your independence and freedom can rely. I can help you and you can take back what uncertainty and fear have claimed. I have over 20 years of mental health and addictions experience in both inpatient and outpatient environments.

I help you resolve issues and improve balance in your life through a holistic approach that includes mindfulness, cognitive behavioral therapy, nutrition, and positive psychology.
I specialize in treating anxiety, depression, and chronic pain. Health problems can be exhausting. Going from doctor to doctor or trying one treatment after another but not seeing any real improvement, you try your best to stay positive but it wears you down. It affects your work, your family, your self-confidence. You may become more depressed or anxious and start to wonder if people are starting to think YOU are the problem. Well, You're not. Stress exacerbates every problem and learning to be calm and balanced improves every life situation.

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.
