My Approach to Helping
Feel stuck, stressed, anxious, sad, or angry? Find yourself repeating behaviors you wish you didn't or are unable to communicate effectively? Maybe a combination of these? You are not alone. Cognitive behavioral therapy can help you alleviate and better manage unwanted cycles of behaviors, thoughts, and feelings long term. I specialize in effective communication and in the reduction of anxiety, stress, anger, depression, and addictive or self-destructive behavior. I have helped many people increase their life fulfillment, instill balance, better their relationships, and reach goal attainment and healing. I tailor treatment to your specific needs in a caring, safe and supportive space.
My professional background includes over a decade in private practice, providing clinical instruction for graduate mental health programs and for those seeking clinical licensure. I have served as director for addiction, cognitive behavioral therapy clinics and residential programs. I supervise staff at a LGBTQ+ mental health clinic and have been featured in various media outlets.
Therapy is at your pace. We may examine the past to explore ways it has shaped things in your life, but focus on the here and now of healing and coping tool development. Everyone has the potential to grow, improve and change and you deserve space to do this.
