ABOUT

I am primarily a Cognitive-Behavioral Therapist with many years experience and expert status. My mentor was the late Dr. Aaron Beck, the founder of Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy. Am also trained in other modalities (i.e. Psychodynamic, Integrative Therapy)  treating a broad range of mental health challenges such as anxiety, mood and interpersonal problems. I believe treatment should be individualized and fit the needs/preference of the person. Yet, I also have a strong conviction it should, ideally, be evidence-based.

In addition, am an international authority on Generalized Anxiety Disorder and have both written and lectured extensively on the topic.
