My Approach to Helping
Do you frequently worry, feel tense, hurt, ashamed, guilty, or irritated? Or do you have problems in your relationships with others? If any of these problems are familiar to you, there is hope.
Together, we can become aware of why you feel this way and I can give you the tools to feel better. We will collaborate to explore and understand your behaviors, feelings, and thought patterns, so that you can find peace. You will feel safe, heard, cared about, and understood. You will not be judged.
I am skilled in using cognitive behavioral therapy and other evidence supported approaches to assist you in dealing with your anxiety, depression, relationship problems, trauma, anger management, or other difficulties. I feel privileged to be able to watch you gain insight and experience more joy.

How Psychotherapy Can Help
Research has proven repeatedly that Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) is effective in decreasing the intensity, duration, and frequency of emotional problems. It operates under the premise that human beings are not disturbed by events or situations, but by the views we take of these events and situations. In order for you to feel better and improve relationships, you must learn to be aware of and understand your thought patterns contributing to the way you feel and behave.
Once you've explored and understood your thought patterns and how they are related to your feelings and behaviors, you can begin to challenge the unhealthy ones. Working with an experienced psychotherapist can help you learn to identify, challenge, and replace unhealthy thought patterns as well as gain other coping skills.
What I Love about Being a Psychotherapist
I enjoy helping people to feel safe and secure discussing their thoughts and feelings. I love watching people learn more about themselves, change their perspectives, solve their problems, and improve their lives.
