Announcement icon Telehealth sessions during Shelter in Place conducted on HIPPA compliant end-to-end encrypted video platform. In-person therapy is on hold.
The combination of strong anxiety and strong intellect poses special challenges for those caught in the crosshairs. I help individuals with active, analytical minds to work through anxiety-related problems such as panic, worry, avoidance, and compulsive thoughts or habits. My approach is warm, practical, and evidence-based, grounded in both mindfulness and Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT).
Many of my clients are nature-lovers, and find that connecting with nature helps them to unwind. My office's tranquil garden setting, coupled with my training in Ecotherapy, supports clients interested in exploring this aspect of health and well-being.
I have over twenty years' experience counseling adults, teens and elders. I also enjoy teaching graduate-level psychology courses at CIIS and JFK University, and periodically offer workshops and stress reduction classes for the general public. Please visit my website for more information or to schedule a free phone consultation.
