I provide time limited therapy to adults who struggle with anxiety and the behaviors that often go along with that struggle. I work with people with panic disorder, emetophobia, social anxiety, OCD, and PTSD. My style is warm, active, present-oriented, and focused on clear goals. I offer treatment plans that are between 12 and 20 sessions.

My practice is currently full and I am not accepting new patients. Consider searching here to find a therapist who provides evidence based care.


Background

I have trained at Harvard Medical School, Stanford University, and UNC Chapel Hill. I am consistently updating my skills and knowledge with workshops, conventions, and consultation. I systematically track progress and seek feedback, and use this information to refine treatment and optimize success for the people I work with.

Method

I use methods that have scientific support for their effectiveness and efficiency. My work is grounded in cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) and acceptance and commitment therapy, and I focus on concrete tools. I emphasize a collaborative relationship, and encourage my clients to take a very active role in their treatments.

Specialties

The majority of my practice is people with panic disorder, obsessive-compulsive disorder, social anxiety, PTSD, and emetophobia. The gold standard treatments for these include exposure, cognitive restructuring, mindfulness, and acceptance based strategies. Those are the interventions I use. I also work with body focused repetitive behaviors, and use habit reversal training and comprehensive behavioral treatment as the primary interventions there.
