Approach

Chairs

I provide what we call the ‘talking cure.’

In our sessions, we do not explore the past in exhaustive detail. Instead we identify the faulty thinking processes that have kept you adrift in unhealthy behaviors or situations. We set you on a new, clearer course to a healthier, more mindful life.

We do this using Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) techniques. CBT is clinically proven to alleviate a wide range of psychological problems by helping to positively alter thinking, emotions, and behaviors.  In many cases, CBT has led to eliminating the need for medications altogether.

In a safe, compassionate environment, I help enable you to develop tools for ongoing growth. In goal-oriented sessions, we evaluate your current strengths and weaknesses. Together we examine not just at a singular problem, but applicable aspects of your life–career, health issues, family dynamics, nutrition, social networks and life goals.
