As a therapist and human being, I believe understanding our emotions is important in all aspects of our lives. I truly enjoy getting to know how others experience emotions and can help in the identification and regulation of hurtful and unwanted emotions. I feel grateful to be able to offer you a therapeutic environment wherein you can discuss painful experiences, thoughts and emotions and learn to cope and resolve those experiences in safe space. I will help you learn and cope with difficult, intense emotions, grief, mood symptoms, and ineffective behaviors through warmth, acceptance, and gentle nudging towards change.

I specialize in cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) and dialectical behavior therapy (DBT). My approach to psychotherapy is collaborative, creative, evidence-based, results-oriented, flexible, and holistic. People often arrive at psychotherapy when they want to deal with problems, alleviate emotional suffering, make a change, move in a new direction, or find well-being. I try to balance acceptance and change, acknowledging that the first step towards change is accepting reality. I think the therapeutic relationship needs to be a real and genuine connection. I value being kind, genuine, thoughtful, direct, honest, and playful as a person and a therapist.

While a specific problem may bring you in, I believe that my clients are often helped by gaining insight into (and ultimately, mastery over) long-standing patterns in relationships, feelings, or behaviors. This approach (called insight-oriented, psychodynamic or psychoanalytic treatment) helps to create lasting change, in addition to symptom management that is part of all therapeutic approaches. My experience working with children and families is particularly helpful even to adult clients, who often wish to explore how early experiences have influenced their present-day lives and relationships.

I view the first few sessions as a consultation period where we work together to determine if I can help you to reach your goals. I will facilitate a conversation about how the beginning of therapy is feeling and will offer additional referrals as needed.

Teletherapy (Online Therapy, Virtual Therapists) Therapists
Teletherapy and Online counseling have grown enormously as a medium for therapy since the advent of social distancing. Most therapists are happy to provide sessions by video or phone.

All professionals are licensed to provide video therapy to clients within the State in which they hold their license. Cross State licensing exists, but is rare.

So if you're a client in Durham, this list of teletherapists are licensed to provide therapy to you online (by phone, video or text based chat) because they are within your state. They are sorted nearest to furthest, with professionals in Durham listed first.

Teletherapy via phone or video can be very similar to conventional in person sessions. The message is the same, even if the medium is different. There are some advantages in the form of convenience, lack of travel and being in comfort of your own home. Set against those, professionals find it more difficult to read non-verbal signals of their clients, and you may find you yourself can be more easily distracted.

How can I tell if a therapist is right for me?
Therapists in Durham are able to work with a wide range of issues. They offer in person sessions as well as Teletherapy in Durham

For example, if you're seeking a marriage counselor in Durham you'll find that most therapists are trained in marriage counseling or couples counseling in Durham and couples therapy. And they welcome families for family counseling in Durham or family therapy in Durham.
