I believe that people's lives improve by setting a series of goals and then conquering those goals. My approach is motivational. Clinical research shows us how looking at our behaviors, and gradually making specific changes designed to improve our lives, can have a huge impact on our stress, mood, and relationships.

As a cognitive-behavioral psychologist, I believe in the importance of setting measurable goals. My clients know exactly what improvement means for them, and we evaluate that improvement every week. I use the analogy of a personal dashboard. Imagine individualized goals that are critical to feeling better set in front of you as you go through life. We celebrate the improvement of those goals. And if one of your goals is not being met, we address your needs and adjust our approach to that goal.

In our sessions, we will discuss your relationships, daily routines, challenging habits, and overall motivation in life. My focus is always on early improvements to build momentum toward accomplishing your goals. I do not embrace an approach that has clients with me for years. Most modern research shows that this is seldom necessary or productive.

I am trained in a broad range of behavior therapies, family therapies, CBT (Cognitive Behavior Therapy), ACT (Acceptance and Commitment Therapy), DBT (Dialectical Behavior Therapy), and various methodologies within the broader behavioral research. What does all that mean for you? It means that I take a practical and active approach to immediately assessing what is affecting your life negatively. I introduce solutions to you very early on in your treatment. I am constantly assessing your progress, and checking in with you through the use of a 'dashboard' reflecting your mental and emotional improvement.

I believe strongly in a client having clear benchmarks for what it means to be 'better.' For some, those are personal examples of what it means to no longer be so depressed. For some, they are personal examples of what they could accomplish with lower anxiety. Some describe what it means not to feel stuck in life. Others reference what they would like to accomplish within a relationship. These benchmarks are critical to setting goals. They are real life hopes that are made concrete and obtainable as we work toward them. This practical approach toward obtaining the life that you want is the cornerstone of my clinical practice.

More Info About My Practice

I am a behaviorally oriented psychologist with over 20 years of experience. My current practice focuses on general psychology. My patients struggle with anxiety, depression, parenting, child behavior, relationship issues, sexual dysfunction, and life transitions.

I have expertise in child behavior problems, general parenting stress, and family therapy. I also have a background in developmental disabilities and struggles within the educational system. I am particularly comfortable treating high-functioning individuals on the autism spectrum. I have expertise in the areas of social skills, transition to adulthood, and school anxiety.

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

I have specific expertise in working with parents to improve child behavior, family routines, school issues, and issues with transitioning to adulthood or new schools. I have a background with disabilities as well, particularly autism and Asperger's syndrome. I have specialization with social and school anxiety. I also provide family therapy.

What I Say to People Concerned about the Therapy Process

Regardless of the reasons that bring you to therapy, the process should be about improvement. Therapy should ultimately be about you acquiring tools to better help yourself in life. I view my role as your therapist as one of teacher, coach, and cheerleader. You acquire specific skills. You get better and better at integrating those skills into your life. And, you celebrate your accomplishments. One by one we check off your goals until you feel better about who you are and what direction you are going.
