What to Expect:

In therapy, I perform a comprehensive evaluation of symptoms and behavioral targets, which we then discuss and set goals around. Depending on the nature of treatment, I utilize Cognitive Behavioral Therapy  (CBT,) Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT,)  Exposure with Response Prevention (ERP) and Habit Reversal Therapy (HRT,) Prolonged Exposure (PE,) or SPACE training.

I work with patients to understand how their symptoms are negatively affecting their life, and collaborate to make a treatment plan customized to meet their specific goals. I am sensitive to the fact that finding a therapist and beginning therapy can be both overwhelming and intimidating. I take my work very seriously, though I try not to take myself too seriously, finding moments of humor and levity where possible. I am encouraged frequently by the bravery and resilience of my patients in their willingness to face and overcome their fears and anxieties. 

I treat therapy as a collaborative, active experience. Please bring a notebook with you and plan to work on the concepts discussed between sessions.
