You have taken a brave step to seek psychological services, and I'm honored you are considering me to be your therapist! Please contact me at 201-994-9969 or email me at email@example.com to schedule a freeconsultation.
I provide a safe, open, and non-judgmental space for clients to achieve their goals. I know that therapy seem overwhelming and intimidating. I integrate Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) with existential, interpersonal, systemic, and cultural approaches to psychotherapy. I aim to understand your unique life circumstances, and support you as you confront and overcome obstacles that interfere with your goals. I utilize Exposure and Response Prevention (ERP) for clients with OCD, and evidence-based practices across a range of psychological difficulties (see below for a list of sample problems treated).
I bring my sense of humor and expertise in working with anxiety, perfectionism, OCD, depression, trauma, academic/work concerns, and many other psychological problems to my professional work. In treatment, I help clients identify and work toward their goals by utilizing principles of mindfulness, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), and other psychotherapeutic approaches.
As a scientist-practitioner and published author, I apply cutting edge research about what actually works in psychotherapy. I stay abreast of recent developments in the psychological literature, and regularly publish articles and present at local and national conferences. See below for my CV & sample articles.
