I enjoy working with people to them to find the opportunity in life's challenges. We all encounter painful situations and it is my hope that through therapy, we can work together to reduce the suffering that often accompanies these. My areas of interest include grief and loss, end of life issues, adjustment to illness (chronic or acute), anxiety, depression, parenting issues, life transitions, relationship conflict, post-partum issues. I draw from a variety of interventions, including cognitive -behavioral therapy, dialectical behavioral therapy, mindfulness-based therapy, and solution-focused therapy.

DBT and mindfulness CBT provide the skills.
Everyone experiences anxiety, depression, and loss at sometime in their life. Often events and people happen in our lives that cause distress. No one deserves to be in pain and no one should have to endure when there is the possibility to reduce the pain. My goal is to help my clients find relief through self exploration and a desire to want to feel better. My job is to walk with my clients in their path to mindfulness. My goal is to provide a safe space for emotions to be expressed and validated without judgment. Together we will identify patterns and triggers, and create skills to reduce future emotional distress.

I draw from several styles of therapy including trauma informed care, acceptance and committment therapy (ACT), cognitive behavioral therapy ( CBT ), narrative therapy, exposure therapy and somatic approaches.
My role is to be a lighthouse. I am here to help you through the storm. Lighthouses do not judge why the storm is happening, instead, they are a beacon to help find the way through the roaring waves. I can’t steer the boat for you, but I can shine some light. Healing through therapy is one of collaboration, communication, and trust. Healing is an individual process, and it is not a linear one. A hard day does not mean failure. My hope is together, and we can discover tools that help the hard days have less of an impact. I believe you are the expert in your own story.

I maintain an evidence-based practice and use cognitive -behavioral therapy ( CBT ), trauma-focused CBT , behavior interventions, exposure, dialectical behavioral therapy (DBT) skills, relaxation, self-compassion, school-based interventions, and parenting skills/coaching in my work.
It isn't always easy being young, especially for children, teens, and young adults who are struggling. Nor is it easy for parents to watch their children struggle. I have 9 years of graduate training focused on treating mental health disorders in children, teenagers, and young adults. I've had the honor of supporting many young people on their journey, and the privilege of supporting parents as well. In addition to therapy I specialize in assessment, with a focus on complex diagnostic assessment. These evaluations yield high quality recommendations that help children, teens, and young adults thrive across settings.

I borrow from other theories as well: Cognitive Behavioral, Mindfulness-Based.
My intention as a counselor is to form a relationship which becomes a safe place within which you can explore the nature of persistent obstacles which leave you feeling confused, overwhelmed, or "stuck." We will look at your style of relating to others, habits and patterns formed throughout the years, as a way to gain insight into who you are and where you would like to be. We will explore the significant relationships in your life (FAMILY OF ORIGIN, romantic, friendships) as well as your relationship with yourself (your emotions, how you handle and/or address conflict, anxiety, stress, sadness).

I use an integrated approach depending on each individual, informed by Mindfulness, Existential thought , Act, and CBT .
When we find ourselves in the midst of change as we are now, we can feel anxious, overwhelmed, scared, and isolated. We can learn however, to be flexible and resilient and to use these times as a way to strengthen ourselves. The urge to minimize our pain and power through, as though everything is the same, can lead to feelings of isolation, and fear. We may find we are lacking confidence in our ability to move forward, or we may find ourselves at a crossroads, not knowing which direction to take. Alternatively, we can develop our internal resiliency, broaden our perspectives and meet the challenges we face, and grow stronger.

You might be feeling loneliness, loss, hurt, sadness, and frustration. You may also have experiences of family disruption, trauma, societal stigma, and not quite fitting in with your peers.

I come from the understanding that you innately carry the resources to thrive.

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.
