My Approach

Whether I see someone for psychotherapy or CBT-I, I conduct treatment with an open and non-judgmental nature allowing others to feel comfortable and at ease during our work together.  I use a collaborative coaching style that helps my patients achieve their goals which involves not only being understanding but having to at times provide challenges to help nudge them in the direction they want to go.  When appropriate, I also offer education and information to my patients about diagnoses and treatment approaches because I believe knowledge fosters power, confidence, and growth.

Psychotherapy

I conduct Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), provide supportive psychotherapy, and incorporate mindfulness for a variety of conditions including generalized anxiety, social anxiety, panic disorder, depression, and sleeping problems in adults, including college students.  I also provide treatment for those dealing with relationship or adjustment issues.

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy for Insomnia (CBT-I)

I have a special interest in sleep and roughly half of my patients come to me for insomnia treatment.  I treat these patients using Cognitive Behavioral Therapy for Insomnia (CBT-I) which is recommended as the first-line treatment of insomnia – even before sleeping pills – by reputable scientific organizations such as the National Institutes of Health (NIH), the American Academy of Sleep Medicine, and the American College of Physicians.  Besides insomnia, I assess for the full spectrum of sleep disorders and, depending on this evaluation, provide my patients guidance for what other work-up or treatment might help.
