My philosophy is that therapy involves more than just talking. It means effectively identifying and building upon ones strengths and consciously breaking down barriers with effective action towards your goals. It means being actively involved in one's evaluation of self and learning tangible skills to effect change, so that you can be more effective in moving towards the life you desire. This can be done in many ways; however, I believe its about building your skill set, so that you have the right tool for the right job! I work with late adolescents and adults, within various stages of life development, and in addressing a variety of life's demands and stresses; however, I do specialize in Anxiety Disorders: Generalized Anxiety, Social Anxiety, Phobias, Panic and Obsessive Compulsive Disorders. I utilize a variety of treatment modalities, many that are cognitive and behaviorally rooted, very active and participatory to effect change: this includes but is not limited to Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Exposure and Response Prevention, Introspective Exposure, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, Mindfulness and Humor!
Its okay to take that leap towards self care and self compassion, its not selfish, its necessary to live a whole and effective life. I truly believe we all do the best we can with the information and skills we possess at any given moment, but moments change.

Reaching out can be intimidating and it takes a lot of courage to trust the person you choose to accompany you on your journey. This is why, I promote you to do your research and take your time to find a provider with whom you feel comfortable and safe. I am open to this process and will assist you in a referral if you find that we are not a good fit.
