I specialize in working with people who have difficulties with their mood, relationships, and having the life they want.

I often draw upon Cognitive and Dialectical Behavioral Therapy and Systems Theory to inform your therapeutic treatment.
Life can hand us unforeseen experiences. Loss, death, or illness. Relationship challenges or disappointments. Seemingly unmanageable anxiety or depression. Work-related problems. Traumatic events or abuse. How do we cope with the effects upon our thoughts, feelings, and behavior? How do we get back to thriving again? I offer you an opportunity to encounter such issues together. You can confront painful or confusing emotions, thoughts, or circumstances knowing you're not alone. I hope to help you discover strengths within yourself and learn additional skills that facilitate your own ability to heal, recover, and restore the hurting places in your mind, emotions, relationships, and life.

Do past traumatic events tend to keep you held hostage in your "safe place"? If you answered yes there is hope.

What type of Columbia mental health professional is right for me?
While most types of therapy have a lot in common, they also fall into clusters that share core features, such as cognitive therapies or psychodynamic approaches. It is important to seek someone who practices evidence-based therapy, meaning one or more forms of treatment that have been scientifically evaluated and tested, and demonstrate consistent improvement for a majority of patients.

If you are unsure about choosing the right therapist, it might be useful to first learn more about therapy types and modalities.
How to find a therapist in Columbia?
When looking to find a therapist, it is certainly important to consider training and credentials. Studies also indicate that the therapeutic alliance, or the relationship the client develops with the therapist, is an important factor in their ability to work together to achieve the client’s goals.

What method of therapy is right for me?
When it comes to treatment methods, there's no 'right way.’ Each method of therapy can be beneficial for a variety of issues. Finding a psychologist or therapist who is a good fit for you is the most important step to discovering what type of therapy, or combination of therapeutic approaches, will meet your individual needs. Learn what to expect from different types of therapy and how they work.

How to use my insurance?
Understanding cost and insurance coverage is an important concern for many people. With some basic research and conversations with prospective therapists, you should be able to have a good understanding of the best way to afford therapy.
