My clinical specialty also involves my longtime research and clinical work with sports performance, specifically 'choking under pressure' in sports and performance situations.
I work with my clients from a cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) perspective which explores and understands the connections between our thoughts, emotions, and behaviors. Together, we identify the specific barriers that are interfering with your ability to live the way you would like. We address different ways of relating to your thoughts and emotions, increase awareness into your patterns through mindfulness interventions, and incorporate coping skills to help you reach your goals and cultivate a happier, more balanced life. I value creating a compassionate and nonjudgmental environment where you can feel safe to make changes.

During this period of uncertainty, now may be the ideal time to address anxiety, depression, unwanted habits, repair relationships, or face situations that have caught up with you or your family members. If that sounds scary, but you are open to facing your fears, then we may be a good fit. I work with adults, children, teens, couples and families, including many first responders. I use evidence based models -- Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), and Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction (MSBR) -- to address the uncertainties of life that can occur with health, family, job, relationships or trauma.
