Talk Therapy

  • Therapy Issues

    I work with clients on a wide range of issues, from relationship problems to work stress, from family issues to career goals, from life transitions to making big decisions.  When you’ve got significant stressors going on, sometimes it’s hard to function or feel your best.

    Insights about a problem are hugely important in therapy, but with my Sophisticated CBT approach, my aim is to put the insights to work.

    My therapy approach is practical, and the first step is to help you take a broader view of your “mental health project.”  Once we can think more creatively about the issues, my clients start to feel ready to try out some thoughtful, measured changes that can help them to re-set.

  • Habit-Change & Self-Care

    Because cognitive therapy tends to focus on raising awareness of the triggers that can get us on the wrong track, my approach works well for habit-change and improving self-care.

    Here are some topics that I’ve woven into my clients’ sessions in order to meet their goals:

stopping procrastination by helping them to put new structures in place for accomplishing goals like writing a thesis or getting to the gym regularly

increasing assertiveness by learning to stop over-accommodating others so your relationships will function more smoothly.

coaching on their career or small business by providing structure and accountability, and a framework for discussing their progress and obstacles

improving self-care by providing tools and accountability to help my clients stay healthier as they manage medical conditions like IBS, migraine, and diabetes.
