Many stressors can interfere with your mental well-being. If you feel overly anxious or depressed, self-critical, worried by life stresses, or too distractible, these are some of the problems that have been helped by Cognitive Behavioral Therapy or CBT. I use it with an interpersonal approach to help working professionals, young people, and parents manage anxiety, panic, depressed mood, ADHD, perfectionism and other problems. My approach involves relationships, thoughts, and behavior, informed by advances in neuroscience applied to psychology.

Each client should expect to be heard in a supportive manner and encouraged to deal with their concerns. My clinical psychology PhD from George Mason U., backed by neuroscience from the University of Chicago, teaching at the GWU School of Medicine, and years of professional experience helps me relate both brain and mind to people's well-being.

Two-way communication and step-by-step evidence-based treatment can be effective for challenging issues like anxiety, panic, depression, and difficult behavior. My publications discuss these issues, PTSD, the neuroscience of mental health, technology, and education. A free 10-minute phone consult is available.
