Many struggle with anxiety and depression, and this is not uncommon. Whether it be nervousness, sadness, relational difficulties, or feeling like we aren’t where we are “supposed to be” in life, there are many obstacles that cause us to feel “stuck.” My job as a therapist is to help you get “unstuck” by aiding you in better understanding the underlying factors contributing to these difficulties, many of which are often rooted in thinking habits and relational patterns. My primary focus is on anxiety and depression, and how the combination of unhealthy thinking and unhealthy relational patterns cause us to feel anxious and depressed.
I have additional training in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and Interpersonal Therapy (IPT) both of which are approaches proven to assist with anxiety and depression. Cognitive Behavioral Therapy focuses on the connection between how we think and our mood, and Interpersonal Therapy focuses on the connection between how we relate to others and our mood.
I understand that you are busy, and therefore offer early morning and evening hours. (If you are interested, please mention this when you call, as these time slots are limited). I also offer services via telehealth. My office is conveniently located in Mission Valley, off the I-8 freeway.
