My Approach to Helping

Contacting me means you want to take control of your life and improve your emotional health. My goal is to guide you toward a more fulfilling life. While we can't change difficult experiences of the past, we can work together to understand those experiences and how they may have shaped your life and relationships. We will work together to change unproductive patterns, resolve or improve current challenges and find strategies to create a better future.

The primary methods of treatment I use (Therapy Methods) are Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) and Schema Therapy (ST). Cognitive Behavioral and Dialectical Behavior therapies help develop coping skills to manage unproductive or negative thoughts, feelings and behaviors. Schema Therapy is an integrative approach to overcoming deeper long-standing unproductive (maladaptive) patterns of behaviors. My training as an ISST Advanced Certified Schema Therapist enables me to help clients probe and resolve their deeper core issues. For couples and marriages, I integrate many of the teachings I've learned from The Gottman Method of marriage counseling. If you decide to work with me, we will explore the issues holding you back and we will develop a plan to help get you to a better place in your life.

If you're ready to really look at yourself and your relationships, explore and resolve the problems that are making life or your relationships hard, or want to overcome anxiety, depression or other mental health issues, call me; if you need a therapist for support and guidance through a challenging situation or relationship, call me; if you want strategies and skills to improve your marriage, call me. I'd be happy to help you like I have helped hundreds of others.

My View on the Purpose of Psychotherapy

If you are interested in making significant changes in your outlook on yourself, your relationships and your connection to others, I can help you reinvent yourself. My 25 years of experience, training and skill in helping people make deeper changes in the way they feel about themselves and their lives is expansive. I use several methods, provide concrete tools and coping skills for many of life's challenges.
