My Practice

I practice several different kinds of evidence-based treatment modalities such as dialectical behavior therapy, time-limited dynamic therapy, and systems therapy. My specialty is in mindfuless-based cognitive behavior therapy (CBT) for mood and anxiety disorders, such as depression, bipolar disorder, post-traumatic stress disorder, obsessive compulsive disorder, compulsive hoarding and other obsessive-compulsive related disorders, phobias, social anxiety, and generalized anxiety.

Using the CBT model, I will provide you with concrete tools to:

  • Develop awareness of your unhealthy patterns of thought and behavior.
  • Manage your anxiety.
  • Decrease depressive symptoms.
  • Increase concentration and organization.
  • Improve relationships.
  • Be more productive.
