Connecting with people in positive, satisfying ways is essential for our emotional health. I make a priority of creating a genuine and supportive relational experience in the therapy setting so that my clients can comfortably process and heal what hurts, while also learning useful skills to manage emotions and behaviors in healthier, more effective ways. I have tools that help my clients untangle any resistance to making changes and to feel more motivated, encouraged and valued. I am very experienced at treating anxiety/panic, OCD, relational struggles, grief, trauma, life transitions and issues special to women and new parents.
Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) is my main focus of treatment, but I also integrate & teach DBT, ACT, & Mindfulness skills. Exploring early attachment relationships, as well as important relationships of the present, is useful for gaining a deeper sense of how our beliefs & interpersonal style were first developed & now currently affecting us overall.
With this sentiment in mind, you can expect a warm, empathic, comfortable, non-judgmental, encouraging atmosphere for our collaboration. You will also learn practical tools to meet your goals. I honor the fact that making changes isn't always easy. Seeking support through therapy is a courageous beginning to what could be a life changing journey for you.
