I’m an associate licensed clinical social worker and psychotherapist who specializes in helping teenagers and adults improve their quality of life by healing big and small traumas through Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing (EMDR) and cognitive behavioral therapy. As undesirable symptoms (e.g., depression; anxiety; and numbing behaviors such as isolation, avoidance, and addiction) are often the result of unprocessed trauma, healing the pain can change your life for the better.

I may be active in my intervention as deemed useful by both the client and presenting concerns, including giving suggestions, interpretations, challenging, facilitating self-empowering therapeutic hypnosis, creative expression/arts, journaling, meditation training to include mindfulness training, dream exploration, CBT /DBT, and occasionally suggesting hmwk.
As a Transpersonal Psychotherapist, and fundamentally client-centered, I believe in an inherent tendency and ability for people to grow and learn about themselves and the world around them. I also believe each one of us has an inner wisdom to tap into. A client is encouraged to boldly explore their own thoughts and emotions in a safe, warm and collaborative therapeutic environment and find new solutions, skills, insight and awareness around life's challenges, both within the person and the persons' life experience. I meet you where you are at, conforming my therapeutic approach to your presenting needs.

Although I focus on the individual when developing an intervention that will allow that person to find their inner strength, my work with clients is primarily from a Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and Psychodynamic Psychotherapy perspective. Becoming more aware of damaging automatic thoughts and acquiring the ability to revise cognitions impacts one's behaviors and ultimately may lead to positive change. The intimate process of making the subconscious conscious is a fundamental step towards growth and change.

I also use cognitive processing therapy (CPT) to help you learn to challenge and modify unhelpful beliefs related to trauma.
Have you found yourself avoiding certain places, conversations, or situations? Do you no longer engage in hobbies or activities you once enjoyed? Do you feel detached from others, or find it difficult to experience happiness and satisfaction? Are you having nightmares or difficulty sleeping? First responders have a front row seat to the best and worst of humanity. This can take a toll on you in a variety of ways. Sometimes images from calls keep returning. Hypervigilance and cumulative stress can leave you feeling restless, irritable, or fatigued. This can lead to resentment and negative beliefs about yourself and the world.

I use a strengths based perspective with strategies from acceptance and commitment therapy, solution focused therapy, cognitive behavioral therapy and mindfulness strategies.
'Hope' (noun): To desire with expectation of obtainment or fulfillment; to expect with confidence. What do you hope for? I think deep down we all hope for similar things; peace, joy, love, excitement, and fulfilling relationships. When we experience depression, anxiety, trauma, stressful life circumstances, parenting challenges or relationship difficulties we can end up feeling hopeless and alone. My goal as a therapist is to help you rediscover your hopes and dreams and make a plan to achieve them! I will do this by providing a safe space to process what has gotten in your way and helping you identify what changes can be made.

In a world that can often feel heavy with forces pushing and pulling us downward in so many directions it can feel all too easy to lose track of your true self.

I work with individuals who struggle with these same questions. Questions that arise from the struggles with trauma, anxiety, depression, attention, autism, and others. My counseling services focus on addressing the integrated person.

I work predominately with adult and adolescent clients who experience trauma and PTSD (including C-PTSD), gender dysphoria, depression, self-harm, and anxiety and adjustment disorders.

Cognitive Behavioral (CBT) Therapists

How does cognitive behavioral therapy work?

Cognitive behavioral therapy works by exploring how your thoughts affect your emotions and experiences. CBT helps you identify distortions in your thinking. For example, you may tend to jump to the worst case scenario (catastrophizing) or think in extremes (all-or-nothing thinking). A therapist can teach you how to push back against those thoughts to ultimately change your feelings and behavior for the better. They can also provide coping skills to better deal with stressors and challenges.

When do I know to seek treatment with cognitive behavioral therapy?

It’s reasonable to consider cognitive behavioral therapy if you struggle to manage difficult emotions or behaviors to such an extent that you are not getting the most out of life on a day-to-day basis. If you want a shorter term, concrete, skills-based approach, CBT is a great option. (By contrast, other types of therapy may devote more time to exploring your past and its effects.) The decision to seek CBT also depends on the condition you’re treating; CBT is an effective treatment for anxiety, depression, trauma, and many other disorders.

How can I find a cognitive behavioral therapist for someone else?

To find a cognitive behavioral therapist for someone else, you may want to begin by discussing the person’s problem, researching cognitive behavioral therapy, and assessing whether the approach is the right fit. You could then reach out to a few cognitive behavioral therapists in this directory, explain the scenario, have a consultation with those available, and determine who could be a good match.

Why is CBT such a popular form of therapy?

CBT has become a popular form of therapy because it is effective and accessible. Robust research has demonstrated that CBT is an effective treatment for many mental health conditions. And CBT can be learned in relatively few sessions, which means that many people can engage in the process, afford it, and see results quickly. It involves learning concrete skills such as disputing unhelpful thoughts; these skills can also be taught and spread widely.
