“The geriatric population had, recently, been under much scrutiny, as these individuals were among the greatest risk of developing severe illness from COVID-19. While the physical health of the elderly has been impacted during the pandemic, their period of isolation has affected their mental well-being, as well. Overwhelming anxiety and depression issues have skyrocketed for this population, creating greater need of services from clinicians, who work with these individuals.” As a member of the older adult/geriatric/elderly population, myself, I have dedicated a greater portion of my energies and professional focus.

I am a licensed Marriage and Family Therapist with over 15 years of experience. I provide counseling to individuals, teens, couples and families. My training was specifically "systems" based so working within the dynamics of a couple or family is a process that I am very comfortable with. Typically I will incorporate Cognitive Behavioral techniques as well as Mindfulness-based techniques into therapy. I enjoy humor and, when appropriate, will use humor often in the counseling I provide. Most importantly, I strive to provide a safe, collaborative, objective and non-judgmental setting where all clients can process difficulties.

In my practice I work with individuals and couples. I believe that therapy can be a useful tool in learning to understand ourselves better, and in building more rewarding and healthy relationships with others. It is a unique opportunity to focus on what is important to us, and what may be preventing us from living to our full potential. In my practice I like to address emotional, cognitive and relational aspects of individual experience. My approach focuses on both, accomplishment of more pressing short term goals, as well as long term goals and personal growth.

Psychotherapy can bring light to darkness, hope to fear, and empowerment to stuck-places that weigh on us. I understand my role as your therapist as being a co-journeyer in your path through healing into a healthier, fulfilling life. My style focuses on reflective-empathetic listening to promote self-acceptance and awareness; cognitive flexibility and experimenting with new choices; and the affirmation of strengths. I have specialized experience with eating disorders, body image (HAES), and the effect of loved ones' addictions/alcoholism. I also value how culture, class, education, and power differences affect close relationships.

In my practice, I utilize DBT, CBT , EMDR, and other treatment modalities as needed to fully meet you where you're at and respectfully challenge you to take the next steps toward your mental health recovery.
My goal in working with you is to hear your story, patiently help you make sense of your confusion and pain, help you create unique coping skills, and build a preferred life worth living. Years ago I worked with cancer patients and their families at a Bone Marrow Transplant Unit in South Carolina. Their situations were varied and complex, their physical and emotional pain was deep. As they talked about their pain, hopelessness, worthlessness, loss, anxiety, and uncertainty, together we made sense of their confusion. Likewise, as we work together, I will help you and your challenges in the same caring and skillful way.

I am a neuropsychologist primarily focused on diagnostic testing across the lifespan (birth to 100+). However, I also provide therapy to individuals and families surrounding a wide range of developmental, cognitive , psychiatric and behavioral challenges. My aim in both assessment and treatment is to offer a welcoming environment within which every patient has a safe space to share the narrative of their journey up to the present. This is done in a manner that honors the lens through which each of us sees the world, while also acknowledging the multiple systems with which we must often interface in order to meet our own needs.

I work with adolescents and adults who face challenges related to ADHD, learning problems, anxiety, stress management, and general wellness/lifestyle. Using a combination of cognitive -behavioral, psychodynamic, and relational techniques and theories I am able to tailor treatment to your specific needs. My emphasis is on connection, collaboration, and self-care throughout the treatment process. While my primary focus is individual therapy, at times I find it appropriate to incorporate family members into sessions to address issues such as parenting, family dynamics, relationship issues, or school problems.

My approach is grounded in evidence-based treatment modalities including Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy.
Are you feeling stuck? Or perhaps you are struggling with difficult emotions, distressing thoughts, or a sense of disconnection from yourself and/or others. Are coping skills that worked in the past failing to make a difference or are now part of the problem? I believe that therapy can provide a unique space to work through difficult life experiences. My goal is to provide you with a safe, supportive, collaborative space that fosters long-term change by helping you understand the underlying thoughts, feelings, and behaviors that get you off track.

I have been trained in several modalities including cognitive behavioral therapy, rational emotive therapy, psychodynamics and strengths based therapy.
As humans we are conditioned to avoid pain and we think and behave in certain ways learned through our upbringing, culture and other life experiences. Therapy gives us the opportunity to reflect on these experiences and interpretations of the world in order to recognize what is no longer serving us. Sometimes all we need is the right guidance to get on the right course of change or action.

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.
