My practice is a combination of cognitive-behavioral therapy, family systems, and insight oriented therapies aimed at teaching you how to shift your emotions by changing your thinking and perspective. After the initial interview which may include psychological testing to clarify diagnosis and identify client strengths and weaknesses, my treatment often begins with a strong focus on strengthening adaptive coping to reduce stress, anger, anxiety, and depression. We will work to improve your communication and conflict negotiation skills with family and coworkers and create a better understanding of the biochemical nature of your illness, and the situational or relational stressors that complicate your life. The next phase of treatment includes a deeper exploration of who you are, where you've been, and the dysfunctional lessons that you've learned along the way. I am trained in many approaches and can tailor your treatment to your needs.
