Individual Therapy

Spilling Sand

I help clients define how they want their lives to be different and identify the steps that will help them reach their goals.

Anxiety Disorders - Panic, OCD, Generalized Anxiety Disorder, and Social Anxiety.

I mostly use Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) which studies have shown to be the most effective therapy for treating anxiety. It consists of teaching the patient-specific ways to replace negative thoughts and behaviors with more realistic and positive ones.

Mood disorders - depression, and Bipolar - I use Psycho-dynamic, CBT, and Mind/Body in order to help relieve depressive symptoms and heal emotional pain.

Anger management - I help clients develop skills that will help them express anger through appropriate verbalization s and healthy physical outlets. 

During COVID-19 Crisis, if you're struggling more than usual with anxiety right now, you are NOT alone. The new realities of today force many of us to stay isolated and disconnect from our friends and family. How do you survive this without losing your sanity? How to deal with anxiety, emptiness, and depression? You might wonder how can I protect myself and my family? What will happen if I get sick? How will I make it through this difficult time? Beyond these new COVID-19 stresses, there are also new social stresses from being either alone for an extended period of time or being in a confined space with your family or roommates. These close confinements can bring up new stresses and aggravate pre-existing ones.  If you have always been an anxious person, the coronavirus, might be making it harder to cope than usual.  During this difficult time, I will be available via Online Therapy. Therapy can be a very helpful tool for coping during this stressful time. Reach out if you would like to set up a time for an initial session.
