About Me

We tend to feel better when talking about our problems, but are we truly "getting better?" I use a therapeutic approach called Rational Emotive Behavior Therapy (REBT), a cognitive-behavioral model that is both collaborative and interactive in nature. REBT postulates that, for the most part, our emotional disturbances (depression, anxiety, guilt, shame, hurt, unhealthy anger, jealousy and envy) are self-imposed by holding and believing irrational beliefs. These irrational beliefs frequently consists of rigid and demanding ways of viewing of ourselves, others, and the world, resulting in unrealistic expectations and pressures. These pressures, in turn, brings forth problematic behaviors such as avoidance, procrastination, perfectionism, impulsivity, and so on. In REBT, we strive to reconstruct and reinforce more balanced and rational belief systems, while simultaneously changing the problematic behaviors.


By decreasing our emotional and behavioral disturbances, we increase our chances of leading more fulfilling and happy lives. This will all make more sense in sessions as we work together. I look forward meeting with you!
