Though it may be a bit cliche, "Help me help you..." has been a powerful message in my nearly 17 years' experience in a variety of multidisciplinary settings (e.g., inpatient, hospital, residential, outpatient/community, school, college, forensic). I believe in the power of resilience and self-empowerment; however, for those times when that isn't working or a little more is needed, I am here for support. You are the expert on you; I am here to get you back to where want to be or help move you to where you want to go.

In addition to being practical, my therapeutic approach is aimed at understanding and integrating the dissonant thoughts and feelings at the core of most problems. I employ a focused and systematic method to identify the barriers to an individual's development and bring about change through an understanding and relinquishing of old models of coping. I am also able to utilize psychological measures of personality and aptitude to assist my clients in making decisions about their treatment and goals.

I believe anxiety and stress to be the foundation of many issues we all face. My first goal is to help my patients reduce stress thereby decreasing chronic pain, depression and even the ravages of disease and illness. By developing rapport and trust and then utilizing healthy coping skills, the goal of anxiety reduction can be achieved. Its important to remember that we are engaged in a collaborative process where we learn to accept, resolve, move on and let go. I find that mindfulness, meditation and breathing is highly effective in decreasing anxiety and depression.

My clients come to me for practical, tangible guidance and support on how to overcome the challenges they face. I use an evidenced based approach, combining Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, that helps clients regain control of their lives, reduce unhelpful racing thoughts, and develop resiliency and confidence. Unlike traditional "talk therapy," where much your time is spent discussing vague concepts, my approach is to create realistic, attainable solutions and help you identify the roadmap to achieve them. About half of my practice involves working with teens/young adults and half with adults.

Often treatment for addiction is disjointed and ineffective. Either there is a focus on treating the medical symptoms or trying to address the psychological needs of the client. As a cofounder of Clarity Medical Group, we have created a comprehensive addiction treatment program that combines medical and psychological care for the most comprehensive and personalized treatment approach. As a psychologist, my role on this team is to address the underlying motivation for addictive behavior while also providing behavioral techniques for relapse prevention as well as family and spouse psychoeducation and therapy.
