I've been engaged in all aspects of behavioral health in the past 10 years.
I've published in journals and books as a researcher, taught hundreds of undergraduate and graduate students as an instructor, and provided thousands of hours of assessment and treatment as a therapist and clinical supervisor.
As an active-duty Army psychologist, I conducted assessment and selection for aviators and deployed to Afghanistan, providing treatment there too.
Across these people, settings, and challenges, some basics of my approach have a remained the same.
As a licensed psychologist, I'm your expert ally.
I provide a safe environment, road map, and tools and you decide where we're going.
I don’t believe therapy needs to be painful and endless. Let's have solution-focused, engaged (sometimes irreverent) conversations, challenging old, unhelpful assumptions and habits.
Starting with the first session, I believe your therapist should be focused on making themselves obsolete and getting out of your way. As you build your own mastery of cognitive-behavioral techniques, you'll experience reductions in symptoms and distress. In addition, you can become more resilient, more confident, and independently able to manage your thoughts, feelings, & behaviors.
