Psychotherapy

Psychotherapy can help resolve problems from the past or create new coping mechanisms and outlets for dealing with current life concerns. Therapists come from several different disciplines to explore these issues.

The model I follow is called cognitive-behavioral therapy. This model examines the person as a whole, focusing on the interaction of one’s thoughts, feelings, and behaviors. Within this model, I utilize evidenced-based practices that have been researched to be effective for the issue you are dealing with. These interventions tend to be time-limited, problem-focused, skills building, and interactive. Cognitive-behavioral therapy has been found to be effective for treating a variety concerns, from depression to relationship concerns. Additional information about cognitive-behavioral therapy can be found at cognitive-behavioral therapy.

Given my extensive training and experiences, I feel comfortable treating individuals and couple’s from many walks of life.  Some of the areas of concern I see in my practice include:

  • Anxiety / Stress
  • Depression
  • Trauma
  • Job-Related Stress / Transition
  • Relationships /Communication / Divorce or Separation / Widowhood
  • Sexuality and Sexual Health
  • Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual, Transgender, and Questioning Issues
  • Sleeping Difficulties
  • Interpersonal Concerns
  • Aging / End-of-Life
