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).
Therapy with me is collaborative - you bring expertise on yourself, and I bring expertise on mental health. Together, we identify goals for therapy, and update them as you make progress (and as life throws curve balls). I keep you in the loop about what we're doing and why, and am receptive to your feedback.
I welcome your individuality and your culture in the therapy room. In my 20+ years of practicing therapy with people from diverse backgrounds, I haven't met you before. I don't make assumptions about your experience - I'd rather learn about it directly from you. Please contact me to get started with a free phone consultation.

I use CBT and ACT, which are both based in the same model of therapy. In this model, we set goals collaboratively, and revise them together as well. I'm open about the therapeutic strategies I'm using, and together we tailor them to you. I make adjustments based on your progress and feedback, while keeping us on track towards meeting your therapy goals. Ask me more in our free 15 minute call!
