My Approach to Helping

Are you having difficulty managing anxious thoughts or depressed feelings? Do you isolate, sleep, self-injure, overeat or using drugs and alcohol to escape emotions? I am a licensed clinical psychologist with 10+ years of experience helping clients struggling with both mental health and addiction concerns. Utilizing elements of mindfulness meditation, compassion-based treatments and cognitive behavioral therapy, I will work with you to get back your quality of life. We will practice "in-the-moment skills" until you feel comfortable managing difficult thoughts and emotions so that your true self is able to flourish. Whether the concern is life transition, chronic pain, compulsive behaviors or trauma, I will help you cope with these difficult experiences at a pace of your choosing.

It is important that everyone have an opportunity to live a meaningful and valued life. Unfortunately this is a difficult undertaking when feeling constrained by ones mental health struggles. I am humbled at the opportunity to help you break free from this struggle and journey back into a life of fulfillment. I am currently taking appointments and work primarily with adults, young adults, and seniors. Please visit www.cognitivebehavioralcounseling.com for more information.

More Info About My Practice

I also hold a Psychologist position in an inpatient drug and alcohol setting providing diagnostic evaluations. I lead a research team which is investigating the impact of self-acceptance, values-based action and self-compassion on individuals with addiction.

My Role as a Therapist

I specialize in the treatment of Addiction, Anxiety, PTSD, Depression, Bipolar Disorder, Chronic Pain, Trauma, OCD and disorders of emotion regulation. I utilize mindfulness and acceptance-based treatments which are particularly effective at treating these and a host of other disorders.
