I am a Cognitive Behavioral therapist at heart and approach all of my clients from this perspective. This means I prefer to deal with current issues and not get focused too much on the past, but I'm happy to look into the past if doing so will help us better understand and treat current problems. Together we will examine your current thoughts and behaviors that are maintaining your problems and work out how can we quickly help you feel better. I have done this type of work for over 30 years and feel as passionate about what I do today as I did when I first started...in fact even more passionate.

Important Factors for Choosing a Therapist
Choosing the right therapist can be a difficult task. Most people just call someone that a friend recommended, that their insurance company suggested or that they happened to hear give a presentation somewhere. Some people give more thought to how to select their next car than to choosing the right therapist. Perhaps the most important criteria for choosing a therapist is finding someone with considerable experience treating the type of anxiety you're struggling with. Secondly it is important to select a therapist with training in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy because that is what the literature suggests works the best. And last (but certainly not least) you must feel comfortable with the person you choose. If you don't feel like you can trust and open up to the person you chose then you chose the wrong therapist and you should keep looking.
