When is the right time to call for back up?

It can be overwhelming to realize that a bad habit is more than just a habit, certain unpleasant thoughts are too frequent and intrusive, or that a relationship seems beyond repair. That moment of honesty can bring on incredible feelings of loneliness and fear, but it can also feel empowering to walk straight into a storm, especially when you’ve got back up.

When done right, psychotherapy is hard work, exciting, and most importantly, effective. We will work together to find relief from your symptoms and insight into your behavioral and cognitive patterns.

I specialize in treatments related to pregnancy and postpartum, women’s issues, anxiety, depression, ADHD, interpersonal conflicts, and sex therapy. I use empirically supported treatments including cognitive behavioral therapy, mindfulness-based therapy, contingency-based treatments, and interpersonal therapy. I value my clients’ input and I encourage feedback and collaboration.
