My training includes Certification in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and in psychoanalytic psychotherapy.
People deserve an empathetic, supportive environment where they can process their feelings and make a plan to solve their problems and achieve their goals. Stress often leads to anxiety and depression which create barriers to those goals. My aim is to help clients see the strengths they have been overlooking to bring down those barriers and achieve their goals. I have a good deal of experience in counseling college and graduate students, both in a college counseling center and in private practice. I find helping young adults particularly rewarding.

Some therapies I commonly use are: Cognitive Behavioral Therapy ( CBT ), Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), and Cognitive Processing Therapy (CPT) for the treatment of trauma.
I became a therapist because I find true joy in connecting with others. I believe that therapy can be impactful and enriching while still feeling down-to-earth and accessible. As a social worker I value collaboration, cultural humility, and seeing you as the expert of your own experience. My style is warm and relaxed, but I will also work diligently with you to develop the tools you need to meet your self-defined goals. My focus areas include depression and anxiety, perinatal mental health, interpersonal and complex trauma, bipolar disorder, life transitions, and emerging young adults.

My training is psychodynamic, but I also use cognitive behavioral techniques, when appropriate, to address problems that are impacting life and happiness.
I am currently only seeing patients by video. I specialize in working with adults and adolescents who want help with disordered eating, anxiety, and/or depression. Exploring conscious and less conscious thoughts and feelings helps to bring internal conflicts to light and resolve emotional pain. To facilitate this process of discovery and relief, I have a supportive and calm demeanor that helps people open up about their inner life and find new ways to cope. I often recommend use of nutritionists, physicians and other professionals to best address the whole person and reduce uncomfortable and relentless symptoms.

Beyond my "formal" education I have continuously pursued on-going education in the areas of Adlerian, Jungian, and Cognitive therapies.
My education and background in philosophy and clinical psychology, and over 30 years in the field, help me assist individuals with a broad range of life difficulties (anxiety, depression, relationship difficulties), taking a rather wholistic approach to the person. I see my goal as helping individuals learn more about themselves (their hidden strengths and weaknesses) so they can build upon their strengths, minimize the effects of their weaknesses, and thus more efficiently and effectively face the concerns that are causing stress. To this end a number of self-report personality measures are administered which help identify strengths and weaknesses.

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.
