As a therapist, I bring warmth, empathy , and understanding to my sessions. My approach to CBT is flexible, creative, and highly individualized to suit your needs. I conduct CBT from a case-formulation approach, meaning that I carefully tailor my interventions to suit the unique circumstances of each client. I have observed many people overcome difficult obstacles, become better able at coping with stress, and develop hope for their futures. It takes great courage to come for therapy. My goal is to support and coach my clients to develop the skills to improve their mood, anxiety, and quality of life.
I am a certified Cognitive Therapist with the Academy of Cognitive Therapy (ACT), an association that promotes excellence and high quality standards in CBT. I have specialized knowledge in the assessment, diagnosis, and treatment of adults (age 18-65).
I treat a wide scope of problems that range in severity.
