About My Clients

Lots of folks have the experience of having talked over and over about how the problems in their lives developed and where their negative patterns came from, but have trouble figuring out what to do about them. It can feel like you’re spending all your time in the past, without much attention to the present and the future — which is really what we want to improve, right? I tend to be the right fit for folks who want to take conscious action right now, to make things better now and for the future

My Background and Approach

I specialize in an approach called Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy, or “CBT.” Your experience of therapy will be as practical and “user-friendly” as possible, so that you’re always clear about how we see the problem and how and why we’re making changes. We want to help you feel better as soon as possible, and stay that way. If you’re struggling with a life transition or troubled by unhelpful patterns that keep cropping up, my specialty in cognitive behavioral therapy may be helpful for you. I also specialize in working with substance use issues in an alternative to the 12-step approach; couples counseling to help you and your partner communicate and resolve conflicts more effectively; treating trauma to keep painful experiences from your past from overwhelming you; and Internet/online issues so that your online interactions can be healthy and fulfilling.

I offer online counseling in the following states:
