I'm a clinical psychologist trained in CBT and mindfulness-based approaches.
Clinical Psychologist in Newtown Square, PA
I have specialized clinical training in the application of CBT to the treatment of anxiety and related disorders, including Generalized Anxiety Disorder, Social Anxiety Disorder, Panic Disorder and PTSD.
I have specialized clinical training in CBT approaches for depression, including Behavioral Activation and Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy.
I graduated from a CBT-focused doctoral program and have extensive experience applying CBT-based interventions in my work with clients struggling with a variety of anxiety and mood disorders.
I have been practicing mindfulness meditation personally for over a decade and have completed a Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) course through Thomas Jefferson University. I use mindfulness- and acceptance-based approaches to help my clients relate to their most challenging thoughts and emotions with greater openness, flexibility and compassion.
ACT is a cognitive-behavioral approach to therapy that incorporates mindfulness and acceptance-based interventions with the aim of helping clients become more attuned to their present-moment experience, and to come into greater alignment with who and what really matters. ACT is the primary form of CBT that I practice and I have attended several intensive trainings with the founders of this approach.
