About My Practice

If you're experiencing anxiety, stress, depression, insomnia, unwanted habits, or communication difficulties in your relationships, I am passionate about providing the support you need, helping you feel better, and achieving meaningful and lasting change.

My practice incorporates an evidence-based cognitive therapy approach, developed by Dr. David Burns, which is highly effective in treating anxiety and depression. This therapy helps clients improve quickly and equips them with tools for ongoing self-help. In addition to my training in cognitive therapy, I am certified in CBT-I, a specialized cognitive therapy for treating insomnia.

When we start working together, I will take the time to understand your unique situation and life circumstances. We will then create a personalized treatment plan, practicing new skills designed to bring relief and identifying tools for you to use between sessions.

My approach emphasizes joint accountability. I will seek your feedback regularly, using it to adjust our sessions as needed and ensuring we monitor progress together. You can expect to experience relief within a few sessions, and through our collaborative work, you will become empowered to make lasting positive changes that help you find joy and fulfillment.

I look forward to meeting you!
