I have special training and experience in utilizing Emotionally Focused Couples Therapy, Gottman Theory, Primary First Relationships (attachment therapy), and Trauma focused CBT for individual/couples dealing with mood disorders, behavioral problems, and addictions.
I believe that your connection with others and focusing on your own emotions, thoughts, and behaviors is essential for good mental health. I believe that productive therapy for couples, children, adults and families requires active and consistent involvement, honesty, and openness to change. I utilize humanistic, strength-based, multi-cultural, client centered, and emotionally focused views for clients needing assistance with relationship problems, mood disorders, teen and adolescence issues, and trauma.

I'm trained in Evidenced Based Models like Cognitive Behavioral Therapy ( CBT ), Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT), and Emotional Freedom Technique (Tapping).
Life is full of transitions, expected and unexpected, and this can be hard on individuals and families as a whole. As a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist, I seek to help you cope, decrease emotional distress, and bring balance and meaning to your current situation. Being a therapist of color has equipped me to be sensitive, open and authentic to issues such as privilege, classism, oppression, racism, as they may relate to emotional pain and suffering. I believe that each person develops unique coping skills to deal with life’s stresses.

I hold a certification in Child-Parent Psychotherapy for children aged 0-5 who have experienced trauma and TF- CBT , which also is trauma focused.
My passion is helping people, or trying to help people as best I can. I know realistically I can't connect with everyone who comes in or solve everyone's problems, but I can offer support, a different perspective, options, empathy and kindness. I recognize that our state of affairs as a country is strained, there is a lot of conflict and I believe people are really struggling to maintain their mental health. I know it's really tough some days and that can be very rough on children and families who have multi-systemic problems and who also don't know who to resolve their challenges or overcome barriers.

I base my practice on Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), a cognitive -behavioral, evidence-based approach.
Our beliefs, behavior patterns, and perceptions can prevent us from living a fulfilling and meaningful life. Noticing how we think and identifying life values can provide a compass for living and give us direction, away from anxiety and depression. We can be empowered by choices about where our mind would take us.

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.
