My Approach to Helping

The specific therapeutic approach and interventions I use depends on individual or couple’s concerns, needs, and ways of learning. I primarily use a Cognitive Behavioral approach, which effectively helps people understand the nuances of their emotional and behavioral concerns to propel change and growth. My clinical approach to counseling consists of a variety of techniques derived from Cognitive Behavioral, Gottman, and Solution-Focused Therapies. As a counselor, I continue my professional development through ongoing research and education. I use research based interventions and collaborate with clients to help them explore concerns from a deeper, more informed frame of reference so that new meanings and ways to tackle personal struggles can be made to support change.

Groups I Work With

    There is clear proof that counseling, when skillfully done, can provide the effective tools to speed up the healing process and prevent concerns from re-emerging. Counseling is the professional approach to seek when you’re ready to make a change.
    Main areas of focus include anxiety management (overwhelm, feeling stuck, Obsessive Compulsive Disorder, phobias, PTSD); sleep disturbance (insomnia); relationship difficulty (recent breakup, divorce, dating); couples (marriage and relationship difficulty).

    The reason I limit my practice to these areas is to give the best service possible. By focusing only on these specific areas I am uniquely qualified to help you to overcome the problems you face. I use research based interventions and collaborate with clients to help them explore concerns from a deeper, more informed frame of reference so that new meanings and ways to tackle personal struggles can be made to support change.
