Treatment Approach

  • I exclusively use treatments and methods that have undergone rigorous scientific research regarding their efficacy.

  • My treatment is informed by third-wave behavioral therapies which include mindfulness and acceptance based components.

  • I use psychometrically validated methods to track therapeutic progress and adjust treatment accordingly.

  • I use a hybrid of individual and group treatments when appropriate to maximize therapeutic time and cost effectiveness.

    • I see exposure groups as the spin class of therapy.

    • It serves to motivate all the members to push themselves a little farther in facing their fears.

    • Groups also help address the shame and stigma which often comes with having a mental health issue. You are not alone. We feel pain and move forward together.
