I specialize in providing therapy for people struggling with post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), anxiety, depression, and anger. Many people cope with stress or past traumas by staying so busy that they never have time for themselves. Do you find yourself staying busy all the time because you dread down time? You know the quiet time when thoughts and emotions come flooding in? It’s a way of avoiding your own feelings and difficulties. Or your emotions feel so intense that it is easier to shutdown and go numb. Some people do this by self-medicating with food and substances. Many people struggling with stress and trauma are also keyed up and on edge. This makes it difficult to get along with others, people are always annoying you, and you often prefer to be on your own. Or perhaps you have a hard time saying no to others and it is easier to just be on your own. Unfortunately, over time this leads to loneliness and isolation. Cognitive Behavioral Therapy will help you start to change the way you think about yourself, others, and the world in order to find a more balanced way of thinking and living your life. My goal is to help you start living well instead of just surviving.
Imagine getting off that emotional roller coaster where your emotions go from 0 to 100 in an instant and instead learning to ride the natural ebb and flow of emotions with confidence. Imagine not being afraid of stepping out of your comfort zone and trying new things that will help create positive experiences. More importantly, imagine finally giving yourself permission to prioritize taking care of yourself and learning to genuinely believe in your self-worth.
I specialize in providing online therapy because you are already stretched too thin and taking 3-4 hours out of your day to go to and from an appointment is difficult! Online Cognitive Behavioral Therapy will help you learn new tools to help you slow down your reactions and instead chose how you want to respond. You will learn how to slow down the spiral of negative thoughts, gain new perspectives, and shift your thinking to healthier and more productive thoughts. You will learn how to identify blocks or obstacles that keep you stuck and create a plan to overcome them so that you can actually carry out your ideas and goals! Call me today and let’s see how we can work together!
I graduated from the University of Utah with a Ph.D. in Clinical Psychology. I completed my internship and postdoctoral training at the Veteran’s Affairs (VA) hospital and I currently work part-time at a VA hospital in Los Angeles providing specialized PTSD treatment for Veterans with combat and sexual trauma. I am a nationally certified provider of Cognitive Processing Therapy (CPT) and Prolonged Exposure therapy (PE), both CBT treatments that focus on treating trauma.
