My philosophy as a therapist is based on three simple premises: 1. Everyone deserves to have a life that is meaningful; 2. Anxiety, stress, and fear cannot exist without the thoughts that create them; and 3. When you make something matter more than your worry and fear, your attention will shift to other possibilities, and your behavior will follow. I use a collaborative, short-term (10-16 sessions) Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT) approach to help people experiencing chronic anxiety, worry, and fear create a "shift" in thinking, feeling, and doing. I'm passionate about creating curiosity associated with "thinking about your thinking" and then igniting those "aha" sparks into opportunities to provide education about your specific concern and clarify your values and goals. This valuable information will help to collaboratively design experiences that will allow you to test out adjustments to your typical responses - Exposure Therapy provides opportunities to gain evidence you need to believe that something more meaningful might be waiting for you just around the corner. Once gained, that insight cannot be taken back. You cannot return to the moment you were in before. The "shift" process for more effectively managing anxiety, worry, and fear can be challenging, uncomfortable work at times - no doubt there - but very much worth the effort. You decide: Is today a day for doubt and regret or it it a day for doing?

Specific Issue(s) I'm Skilled at Helping With

I specialize in helping people to understand and cope more effectively with all levels of worry, anxiety, and fear, as well as more chronic and persistent Anxiety Disorders such as Generalized Anxiety, OCD, Social Anxiety, Panic Disorder, and Phobias. Relationship Anxiety and Distress is also one of my specialty areas. I am a Certified Graduate from the Behavior Therapy Treatment Institute (BTTI), which specializes in training professionals in evidence-based treatment protocols for Anxiety Disorders.

How Psychotherapy Can Help

My therapeutic approach can help provide opportunities to understand your concern more clearly, shift your relationship with that concern to one that is more curious, accepting, and less judgmental, clarify your values and goals, and free up energy, knowledge, and resources to change the way you respond to your concern in order to move you closer to the life you want.
