Depression and Anxiety

A person seeks professional help when they feel unfulfilled and stuck, during a time of great loss/crisis or when they are experiencing relationship difficulties.

Couples Counseling

My client is the relationship not each individual, which allows me to offer non-judgemental and warm help to couples who are in different stages of their relationship. I have helped numerous couples find happiness, harmony, and coping strategies to life challenges. I use John Gottman’s (research based) approach and EFT to help couples understand their strengths & areas that need improvement.

CBT

To help clients with anxiety/depression I challenge distorted beliefs and maladaptive behaviors using Cognitive Behavioral Therapy. This approach along with other interventions encourages clients to go out of their comfort zone & reduce problamatic symptoms.  

Online Therapy

COVID-19 Update: This temporary new way of life can be difficult to navigate. I offer online sessions for couples and individuals through a convenient video chat of your choice so that you can get the help you need in the safety of your home.

In consideration of your problems, treatment will be tailored to your individual needs. I practice Cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) which is scientifically supported by more than 30 years of research demonstrating its effectiveness. It is a time-limited, empirically supported treatment for a wide range of problems including depression, anxiety, stress, and worry. I also integrate The Gottman Method and EFT into my work with couples and families to help them achieve long lasting change and avoid the rubber band effect.
