Hi. I'm Devora. I love being a counselor and I changed careers midlife to do this work! If you feel stuck, lost and/or anxious, I can help.

I have been using CBT most of my life and it has been very helpful. It starts with identifying your thoughts and feelings. Most emotions are reactions to thoughts. Once you identify unhelpful thoughts, you can challenge them (are they true?) and ultimately, change them. Human beings make up stories and as a way to find meaning. Are your stories supporting you? Do you feel mired in the muck of your stories? You might be surprised how much can change in a short time.
I do not only use CBT but I do believe our thoughts are directly responsible for our emotional experiences. Some of our thoughts cause us suffering. Don't believe everything you think.
I believe you are the expert on you. We will focus on your goals and evaluate how the therapy process is going for you.
Everyone on the planet is feeling anxious to some degree. I can help you understand and reduce anxiety symptioms.
I love working with baby-boomers and Gen Xers. We are all getting older and now is the time to take care of our inner "business."
