Life can often feel overwhelming.  Relationships can be difficult to manage, leaving you feeling run-down and exhausted or jumpy and jittery. Together, we will re-discover your strengths and improve how you feel about yourself and others around you. My approach to counseling combines Cognitive-Behavioral therapy (CBT) and Mindfulness practices.

CBT is a widely used form of therapy with which you will learn (1) to pay attention to your self-talk, (2) recognize how your self-talk impacts your feelings and decisions, and (3) how to re-frame those unhelpful thoughts into more positive ones. Most people have standard "scripts" they tell themselves about various situations (e.g., I won't be successful, men/women can't be trusted). CBT teaches you to separate the facts from these broad assumptions (e.g., I haven't always succeeded but that doesn't mean I won't). Mindfulness is the practice of being present in the moment and aware of your thoughts and feelings.

Both of these therapy techniques work well with individuals experiencing anxiety, depression, stress/anger management, impulse control, relationship difficulties, and questions or concerns about their sexuality and gender. With them, you will learn easy-to-use and easy-to-maintain skills.

In addition, I work with individuals who have thought about, or engaged in, compulsive and/or non-consensual sexual behaviors.  I strive to provide a safe, confidential environment to explore these issues and to identify healthier and more productive ways to express your needs.
