LCSW

At the beginning of my work, I practiced what is called the ‘eclectic approach’, which uses different techniques depending on the client. Meanwhile, over the last 20 years I discovered cognitive therapy consistently resulted in more effective and long-lasting results. After specialized training under the Cognitive Therapy and Training Center, certified by Academy of Cognitive Therapy, did I consider myself to be a true cognitive behavioral therapist.

With adults and adolescents, I find my approach to focus on empathetic, nonjudgmental listening. Therapy, at its best, is a conversation where we can work together to better understand what you need, who you are, and what has happened in your life so you can have empathy for yourself. Self-empathy is powerful tool to connect yourself to your feelings, which can be hidden from our day-to-day experience.
