If you are struggling with issues related to anxiety and depression, you are not alone. In today’s world, it’s easy to feel overwhelmed by the daily rigors and uncertainties of life. Thoughts like “am I good enough?” or “can I do this?” typically bring to the surface feelings of sadness, self-doubt and inadequacy. Then, you retreat and live within a dark cloud that could color your experience for years. I teach people strategies to manage themselves so that life doesn't seem so debilitating. As a licensed clinical psychologist, I work together with my patients to identify and change the negative self-talk so that they can face their fears and expand their comfort zone. My areas of expertise include anxiety, depression, bipolar disorder, adjustment to medical conditions and other health issues, college aged students, stress management, adjustment issues related to transitions in life, and aging and geriatric issues.

What can clients expect to take away from sessions with you?

During our first session, I will ask a lot of questions so that I am better able to understand what is going on with you. Then, throughout the course of therapy, we will identify goals and chart ways to meet them as you develop the tools to manage your own life. Therapy is work, but in this collaborative therapeutic relationship, you will have support and guidance as we address your specific issues in a safe, non-judgmental, and accepting environment. Change occurs over time and it will take time to develop healthier thinking and behavioral patterns.

What treatment methods and tools do you utilize?

I utilize a cognitive behavioral treatment approach, which examines the relationship between a person's thoughts, feelings, and behaviors, and then I incorporate evidence-based practices to help facilitate the desired changes.

Explain to clients what areas you feel are your biggest strengths.

I consider myself a generalist and have been able to effectively work with a variety of issues over the course of my career. However, I have found that most of my work has focused on the treatment of anxiety and depression.
