I believe first and foremost in the importance of the therapeutic relationship. I understand that beginning the work of psychotherapy can be a challenging and sometimes scary thing. Finding a therapist with whom you can build a trusting relationship is essential to the success of your treatment. Through honest and warm communication I create an environment where clients can feel supported and cared for throughout our work together. My specialties include anxiety disorders, trauma and related disorders, depression and mood disorders, and sports performance and injury recovery. I work with adults 18-year-old and older.

**THE CBT SPECIALIST** Finding a therapist is a daunting task. While I specialize in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) for anxiety-related disorders and depression, I also incorporate elements of Mindfulness, Problem-Solving, Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT), Acceptance & Commitment Therapy (ACT), and Gottman couples theory. In addition, I have been trained in EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) by the EMDR Institute. EMDR can provide an effective treatment synergy with CBT, especially for patients with trauma histories. My goal is to help you feel more hopeful, be happier, and be more in control of your life.

Do you love your partner, but want to feel "in love" again? Are you anxious about dating, or have you had a recent break up? Improve communication and reduce conflict by recognizing unconscious patterns that interfere with true intimacy. Learn the value of presence and authenticity in your relationship. For those seeking a new relationship, practice discernment skills to recognize "the one," and create new romance pathways rather than relying on the map that has previously failed you. I teach skills to couples and individuals who understand that a romantic relationship is the centerpiece of success.

Life presents to us a consistent ebb and flow of challenges. Often, we become stuck in the maladaptive cycles of generational and personal trauma. Just as life is filled with constant change so too are we capable of training our minds to better adapt to our current needs. We are capable of much more than we realize and we can choose to better ourselves and in turn our relationships and our lives. I create a safe space to explore and learn. I will guide you toward a greater sense of self-understanding and empowerment as well as aiding you in identifying and achieving your goals through a collaborative therapeutic process.
