I work collaboratively with clients using evidenced-based interventions to treat a range of emotional and behavioral problems in children, adolescents, and adults. Specific interventions vary based on the problem being treated but I frequently employ behavioral and cognitive strategies, commonly referred to as cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT). CBT is usually a short-term treatment (typically between 12-20 sessions) that focuses on learning specific skills to reach one's goals. In the course of treatment, clients learn how their cognitions (thoughts), emotions, and behaviors are connected. CBT targets changing either the way a person thinks about a situation or by changing specific behaviors in order to reduce overwhelming emotions. This effective treatment can be used to target anxiety, depression, improve emotion regulation, and ADHD among others.

I am also the supervising psychologist for our clinic’s Tourette Syndrome and Tic Disorders Specialty Service providing evidence-based, non-pharmacological treatments to help manage tics and related behaviors.
