Areas of Expertise

I provide empirically-based treatment and interventions for the following:

    • Mood Disorders (e.g., depression, bipolar disorder)
    • Anxiety Disorders (e.g., generalized anxiety, social anxiety, specific phobias)
    • Obsessive-Compulsive Disorders (e.g., obsessive-compulsive disorder, hoarding disorder)
    • Trauma- and Stress-Related Disorders (e.g., posttraumatic stress disorder, adjustment disorder)
    • Feeding and Eating Disorders (e.g., anorexia, bulimia, binge-eating disorder)
    • Substance Use Disorders (e.g., problems related to alcohol or drug use)
    • Other compulsive behaviors (e.g., gambling, shopping, pornography use)
    • Learning Disabilities (e.g., attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder, reading disability)
    • Personality Disorders (e.g., borderline personality disorder, antisocial personality disorder)
    • Coping skills
    • Parenting skills
    • Communication skills
    • Interpersonal skills
    • Conflict negotiation skills
    • Assertiveness skills
    • Self-care skills

I specialize in brief, solution-focused treatment of anxiety, depression, trauma, and substance abuse. I’m also highly adept at helping clients navigate transitions such as divorce, uncoupling, career changes, and bereavement, as well as adjustments to environmental stressors such as trauma, illness, interpersonal conflict, and job pressure. I work with individuals, couples, families, and groups.

I use cutting-edge techniques that can help you quickly make progress or move beyond some problems that are not getting better in your current situation, such as Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT), Mindfulness-Informed Psychotherapy, and Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR).
