I specialize in the treatment of anxiety disorders (separation anxiety, general anxiety, specific phobias, obsessive compulsive disorder) among children, adolescents and young adults. A large portion of my work with clients and their families includes utilizing a Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT) approach as it is an evidenced based treatment that is shown to successfully help people cope with their worries. Teaching CBT skills to my clients helps them to walk away with specific coping methods to employ when experiencing distress. Generally, treatment involving CBT is short term (approximately 6 months) which often feels very manageable for families. However, I am always adapting therapeutic techniques to fit each individual’s needs and if a client and/or family would like to pursue ongoing therapeutic support we can absolutely make that work. If you are looking for a more client-centered approach, without the structure of CBT, I feel confident that I can meet your needs with similar treatment outcomes. Please contact me to discuss your concerns and to see if I might be a good fit - as I believe that a good working client/therapist relationship is crucial to successful outcomes in therapy.
