I work with clients on adjustment to life changes, anxiety, depression, identity development, racial stress, relationship conflicts, and work stress.

I have a law degree and consider myself a strong advocate for cultivating and supporting the whole person inside the attorney and the athlete. It is my true pleasure to provide coaching, therapy, and wellness supports to individuals in both professions and other fields that encounter similar challenges.

You've probably developed good coping strategies, but found common sense and good intentions have just not been enough. You may be spending a lot of time in your head, and are looking for a break from that so you can get on with living your life with vitality.

I specialize in cognitive behavioral therapy which is based on identifying problems and recommending useful steps to help the individual move forward in their life.
I believe strongly in helping people move forward in their lives by recognizing their strengths and helping them solve their problems. I am an action oriented psychologist with both business and healthcare experience. My form of psychology is not to merely listen but identify problems and developing a plan of action. Often problems are based on transitions which are difficult for everyone. By identifying the issues, developing steps and solutions, individuals will move forward in their lives. Transitions are a difficult time for many individuals which may occur with new jobs, changes in life e.g. becoming an empty nester and/or facing retirement

I use psychodynamic and ACT approaches in my practice and am also trained in CBT .
What is your story? It's common to have a running narrative about who you are in this world. We use certain words to describe ourselves, like “I’m shy.” “I’m an anxious person.” “I’m bad at dating.” While these stories are based on real experiences, they can also hold power over our self-esteem, our decision-making, and our relationships. I too have suffered from a limiting self-concept. I even traveled the world on solo backpacking trips in an effort to "find myself." What I came home with was the firm belief that the seed of change lies in self-acceptance.

My therapeutic approach includes cognitive -behavioral therapy, solution-focused therapy, and is client-centered.
I enjoy working with clients who are transitioning to the next stage of their lives or want to set new life/career goals. The next step could be transitioning from high school to college, beginning a new relationship, or a new career/job. I like to support the client with exploring these new goals, help build confidence/self-esteem to take those first steps towards them, and re-evaluate goals if necessary. I find that these transitions come with a lot of anxiety, depression, and other mental health issues that can hold clients back, which I like to explore, build solutions, and help them realize that goals are achievable.

I use CBT , DBT, and Solution Focused work, using mindfulness, breathing techniques, visualization, and goal setting to help clients reach their short and long-term goals.
My ideal client is someone who comes to therapy in a time of need. They might be experiencing anxiety due to life changes and transitions or they might be experiencing symptoms of anxiety for the first time and be concerne as to where the anxiety came from. The client might be processing loss or grief from a loved one or past friendships and or relationships. My ideal client will have needs such as needing to identify coping skills to get through life stressors, assistance with reaching goals. As a therapist I would be able to provide the client with a objective perspective to bounce their ideas and situations off of.

Do you feel stagnant or stuck? Feeling lost, overwhelmed, unfulfilled, or isolated? Do you find yourself repeating the same behaviors, even though you know they are not helping you get to where you want to be? You want things to be different with your entire being, but for whatever reason just cant seem to get there. You've turned to addictive behaviors or developed an unhealthy relationship with food to cope. Self sabotage and self criticism turns into a vicious cycle. You have tried therapy before, but didn't feel like you got what you needed because you were listened to but not challenged or pushed out of your comfort zone.

Using skills from mindfulness meditation (MBCT) and cognitive behavioral therapy ( CBT ), I will teach you "in-the-moment" techniques to manage racing thoughts and difficult emotions.
Has anxiety, depression or substance use prevented you from living the kind of life you want to live? Are you feeling lonely, empty or unfulfilled? I have spent the past 15 years helping clients fully engage in life and develop a sense of ease. Difficult losses, relationships and career change can lead to feeling stuck and dissatisfied. Traumatic events and panic attacks feel unbearable. Overcoming these challenges with guidance and compassion is critical. I will work with you in each of these domains to create new optimism and reconnect with the person you value inside.

The process of finding a psychologist who is a good fit for either yourself or a family member can be overwhelming and frustrating. I make it a point to ensure that clients who reach out to me feel heard and understood. Therapy can only be effective if it is a collaborative process in which clients feel they have a say in their own treatment. I mainly practice from a cognitive -behavioral perspective ( CBT ), but I also use other modalities in sessions in order to best meet the needs of my clients.

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.
