I was 17-years-old when I first picked up a phone at a peer counseling hotline. I entered college with the goal of becoming a clinical psychologist, but this was my first experience actually trying to help someone in pain. After I worked through my own anxiety, I was struck by what an incredible privilege it was to offer help, support, and guidance to those who needed it. Throughout college, graduate school, and my ongoing training I learned different techniques, approaches, and philosophies, but I've never forgotten what an intense privilege and honor it is to be permitted to guide people through the most difficult times in their lives.

I identify as a cognitive behavioral therapist, and I also draw my treatment style from dialectical behavior therapy, and other mindfulness based approaches. More important than technique though, is the unique therapeutic relationship that we work to form together, in order to create a safe environment for learning, growth, and change.

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

Growing up in a family where I was told that danger lurked behind each corner of the suburban enclave in which I was raised, it's no wonder I developed a specialty in working with folks who struggle with anxiety and related concerns, like obsessive compulsive behaviors!

Anxiety (and every other negative emotion) serve important functions in our lives. It's my goal to help you learn to listen to helpful anxiety (that keeps us from walking down dark streets alone at 3am and helps us to study for exams), while reducing the unhelpful anxiety that doesn't serve you, and keeps you from living your best life.

Why Going to Therapy Does Not Mean You are Weak or Flawed

Often, people come to me after years of struggling with anxiety. Most will tell me that somewhere along the line, they received the message that only weak or flawed people went to therapy or talked about their problems. I think admitting that you need help, and talking about painful thoughts and emotions is a tremendous sign of strength, it's not an easy thing to do!

Imagine for a moment if we applied that logic to other areas of our lives? Only weak people visit doctors, you should be tough enough to power through that pneumonia! Or, how about, only flawed cars need regular oil changes? Sounds kind of unreasonable huh? I think so too! We don't power through broken bones or blown transmissions without help, why struggle alone with painful thoughts and feelings?
