I utilize a variety of therapeutic interventions; including motivational interviewing, cognitive -behavioral techniques, and interpersonal awareness; leading to a reduction in self-defeating behaviors, healthier relationships, and an increased capacity to manage life transitions.
Life is made up of transitions, some expected and some unexpected. Responding to these transitions can often be challenging and result in unwanted feelings or symptoms. My approach to treatment is to work collaboratively with you to understand your concerns, the underlying precipitants, and build upon your strengths to develop strategies to overcome and manage these challenges. I cannot overestimate the power of really listening and providing a safe space for you to express your concerns, however awkward, uncomfortable, or upsetting. I strongly believe that everyone has the capacity to change and instilling hope is integral to that change.

Our approach in treatment is for the client to begin a cognitive awareness of the patterns of thinking and feeling affecting behavior.
We all need help at times to understand our feelings. Mindfulness-based therapy facilitates awareness, insight and the ability to plow into inner wisdom to heal self and reach one's full potential. Mindfulness experience increases an inner peace that remains present through life's challenges. The ability to facilitate change requires first acceptance of feelings, and thoughts. Mindfulness and compassion then facilitates change and new behaviors begin to emerge. The benefits include no longer being afraid, angry or anxious, life-skills improve resulting in a better understanding of goals and values and thus growth as an individual.

Cognitive -Behavioral Therapy ( CBT ) believes that how you think determines how you feel and act when a situation with your spouse, child, friend or co-worker arises.
I am a professor (University of Illinois, currently: Georgetown Medical School) and in private practice. As a teacher of tools, skills and strategies, my clients quickly learn new, more effective behaviors to reduce discomfort and be more successful. My approach is not so much placing a label on people but in offering ideas for what they can DO NOW and in the future to learn and implement new successful behaviors. I enjoy working with mood, anxiety, anger and behavioral problems for all the ages. My approach is pragmatic, behavioral and usually is short-term to achieve well-defined results.

Cognitive Behavioral (CBT) Therapists
Cognitive-behavioral therapy stresses the role of thinking in how we feel and what we do. It is based on the belief that thoughts, rather than people or events, cause our negative feelings. The therapist assists the client in identifying, testing the reality of, and correcting dysfunctional beliefs underlying his or her thinking. The therapist then helps the client modify those thoughts and the behaviors that flow from them. CBT is a structured collaboration between therapist and client and often calls for homework assignments.

If you're looking for CBT therapy in McLean or for a McLean CBT therapist these professionals provide cognitive behavioral therapy, cbt group therapy, cbt therapy, cognitive behavior therapy, cognitive therapy and behavioral therapy. They include CBT therapists, CBT psychologists, CBT psychotherapists and CBT counselors.
