Cognitive and Behavioral Therapy (CBT) is a long standing treatment for a relatively rapid change in your lifestyle.  I use CBT as my main counseling technique for mood swings, anxiety disorders, and depression.  Over the last several years, an increasing amount of studies from renound universities of Harvard, Stanford, and others indicate that mindful meditation for stress reduction has been extremely effective.  I also teach mindful meditation and use it in my practice as an adjuct with CBT.  My intent is to stay focused on the cutting edge tools that can help you both long term and short term.

As a cognitive and behavioral therapist, my goal is to help you uncover your true potential and lead a life that is worth celebrating. While we can't change difficult situations of the past, we can work together to better understand and resolve challenges in your life. By applying complementary therapy approaches and techniques, we will unearth long-standing behavior patterns or negative perceptions that may be holding you back from experiencing a more fulfilling and meaningful life.
If you are looking for extra support and guidance through a challenging situation or you are just ready to move in a new direction with your life, I look forward to working with you to achieve your goals.
