CBT involves challenging our thoughts, feelings and behaviors in order to create positive change. CBT is especially helpful for changing difficult emotions, like anger, sadness and anxiety. While we may not be able to erase certain thoughts and behaviors, together we can learn to replace them with more helpful ways of thinking, being and feeling!
Therapy involves processing the past—not just for the sake of staying in the past, but to gain awareness of our life experiences and the things we internalized as a result of those experiences. Anything learned can be understood, evaluated and replaced with new ways of being that might better serve you. Together we can explore your past to help you find healing and move forward.
Much of our way of being and relating with others connects back to our early experiences with our caregivers. Although these are old patterns, we can learn new patterns through the trusting and safe relationship we create in therapy. Through therapy, we can try out new ways of relating—of seeing and being seen—in order to experience new ways of being with others.

I have worked with many clients navigating varying degrees of depression. Depression is painful and can be very isolating—it also does get better. I have advanced training in CBT which is an evidenced-based practice for depression that helps to challenge the thoughts and behaviors that come with these painful feelings.
Codependency is a deeply rooted behavior that often starts in childhood and can impact our self-esteem, self-image, relationships, and overall mood. Many individuals find that they are very concerned with how others see them, worry about pleasing others, or might want to control how others act or think. They might be so consumed with these worries that they lose track of what they themselves feel, want and need. If you can relate with this, exploring codependency together could help.
