My primary goal in therapy is to create a safe and comfortable space for you to make changes to improve your life. In my practice, I strive to develop a collaborative relationship to explore your patterns of behavior, relationships, emotions, and thoughts, and how these patterns interact with each other. Through this exploration we will work together to identify unhelpful patterns and to help you develop new patterns and skills.
More About My Practice
My approach to therapy is integrative. I use techniques from a variety of theoretical orientations, including cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT), psychodynamic, mindfulness, and dialectical behavior therapy (DBT) perspectives.
I specialize in evaluating and working with clients with a range of issues, including trauma, anxiety, depression, stress, and relationship difficulties. I provide the two gold-standard treatments for posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD): Prolonged Exposure Therapy (PE) and Cognitive Processing Therapy (CPT).
