I am a licensed clinical psychologist helping individuals overcome problems associated with depression, anxiety, stress, and relationship difficulties. My goal is to help you understand and resolve challenges that are preventing you from leading the life that you want. Using evidence based psychotherapy approaches, we will examine long-standing behavior patterns or negative perceptions that may be holding you back from experiencing a more fulfilling and meaningful life. I use cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), incorporating aspects of dialectical behavior therapy (DBT), acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT), stress management, mindfulness, and interpersonal approaches, depending on your personal goals for therapy. I emphasize evidence-based psychotherapy, focusing on treatments supported by research. My approach is active and present-oriented, aimed at helping you address problems in the here and now.
In addition to helping individuals find relief from depression/anxiety and address life problems, I have a special interest in positive psychology that I incorporate into my practice. Drawing on research in optimism, happiness, and positive emotion, I work with clients to recognize and build upon personal strengths, cultivate resilience, and enhance optimal functioning.
If you're looking for extra support and guidance through a challenging situation or you're just ready to move in a new direction in your life, I look forward to working with you to achieve your goals.
