I specialize in providing evidence-based treatment for anxiety, depression, and related disorders. As a cognitive-behavioral (CBT) therapist, my approach is collaborative, individualized, and based on scientific evidence. CBT focuses on the relationship between one’s thoughts, feelings, and behaviors in everyday life. It is difficult to change our emotions directly. Therefore, by changing our thoughts and/or behaviors, one can change the way they experience difficult emotions. This approach is skills-based and relies on a collaborative relationship between the therapist and client. For the best outcomes, it is important to practice these skills in everyday life between sessions.
I treat children, adolescents, and adults. In working with children, I involve parent’s in the therapy. During therapy I typically ask patients to complete between session practice.
I offer comprehensive evaluation services to address a verity of difficulties during childhood, adolescence, and adulthood. Testing typically includes an assessment of intelligence/cognitive abilities, academic skills and functioning, executive functioning, and social/ emotional/ behavioral functioning.
As part of testing, I provide recommendations that can be used at school or at home, and are often necessary to receive additional services in school (e.g., IEP, 504 plan, testing accommodations).
