Do you want to feel better?  Are you interested in gaining insight into why you feel the way you do? Are you open to trying new behaviors that lead to a greater sense of well being and inner peace? 

My treatment approach involves taking an in-depth life history to arrive at a greater understanding of what is currently causing your problems and relational patterns.  How we move

forward is individualized based on your treatment goals and history.  I really enjoy watching my clients develop a balanced lifestyle and achieve their personal goals (i.e., better relationships, less anxiety and depression, greater happiness and self-esteem).

My theoretical orientation is integrated, meaning that I draw from various schools of thought and approaches such as psychodynamic and cognitive behavioral.  In addition, I often teach clients mindfulness/meditation techniques in order to increase emotional awareness and regulate feelings.

I am a licensed clinical psychologist who specializes in treatment of individual therapy for Adolescents and Adults, with expertise in the treatment of Anxiety Disorders (Generalized Anxiety Disorder, OCD, PTSD, Panic Disorders, Social Anxiety, Phobias), Depressive Disorders, Eating Disorders, Stress Management, ADHD, Bereavement, and Relationship Issues.  I recently moved to Steamboat Springs after working 15 years in my New Hampshire private practice.  I have also worked at specialized treatment centers for sexual and physical abuse survivors and individuals with eating disorders in both Florida and Vermont.

Please call me at 970-875-4755 to discuss setting up a first appointment.  I look forward to talking with you.
