We use gradual Exposure Therapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy, depending on your needs and preferences. All of us worry or become nervous and even fearful at times. But sometimes these experiences happen too often, get in the way of doing what we want to do, or feels too bad or beyond our control.

All people experience stress. Sometimes stress becomes chronic or so severe that it can inhibit a person’s ability to be a good spouse or parent, impair memory and concentration, lead to chronic fatigue or sleep problems, and can contribute to physical problems such as high blood pressure and infertility. Even the most stressful situations can be alleviated with the right approach. Read More
A marriage is strong when a couple can confidently say that they are friends and partners. And being lovers makes it even better. But that rarely happens when you don’t have the first two. For more information about our marriage and couples counseling, visit CharlottesvilleMarriage.com.
I specialize in anxiety, OCD and couples issues, including marriage counseling and intimacy problems. I rely heavily on the most current scientific knowledge, and I use the most proven treatment approaches available. I believe that therapy should not be about endlessly recounting your past or “finding someone to talk to.” It should be about changing your life for the better in the most efficient way possible.

We work with people who see room for improvement in their work, their relationships, their ability to find happiness, or their health and overall well-being. Some of them want to be better at their jobs. Others want to be better parents or to have a better relationship with their spouse. Or they want to get past that one thing that is holding them back. Some of them experience more intense anxiety, stress, conflicts in their marriages, or difficulty changing their own behavior. But they all come to our practice because we use the most proven approaches, and what we do makes sense to them.
