Cognitive Behavioral Therapy 

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy is used during sessions and is a form of psychotherapy that is goal-oriented. CBT is designed to help individuals change their perceptions, patterns of thinking and behaviors.  CBT allows clients to gain a deeper understanding of who they are, and the functions oftheir behaviors.

Eating Disorders

I have an extensive background with eating disorders and am truly passionate about helping individuals who are struggling with restrictive eating, overeating, over-exercising, body dysmorphia, and fears around food and eating. I help clients identify personal strengths, restructure thought processes, find healthy and appropriate replacement behaviors, and build strong support systems.

Areas of Expertise

Anxiety 

When working with individuals who are struggling with anxiety it is important to understand anxiety is our body's natural response to stress. Therefore, I assist clients in identifying the types of anxiety they are feeling, and the triggers that evoke it. Clients begin to develop effective coping mechanisms, and discover the origins of their stress.

Depression

 Depression often negatively affects mood, affect, ability to perform day-to-day functions, and perceptions, so it is important for clients to set goals. Clients review precipitating and predisposing factors,  develop healthy support systems, and practice reframing thoughts. Clients become better equipped to handle their thoughts and emotions. 

My Approach

As a clinician, I believe everyone has something positive to contribute to a relationship. I believe it is important for clients to feel comfortable, safe, and valued during each session.

I also do not believe our struggles define us, but instead make us stronger individuals, parents, friends, siblings, co-workers, etc., and should be used as learning experiences to promote self-growth.
