I'm a licensed psychologist and cognitive behavioral therapist based in the Rockridge neighborhood of Oakland, California. I work primarily with adults and older adolescents. I specialize in providing Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT) for depression, anger (anger management) and related issues including the long term effects of bullying and abuse.
CBT is a structured, empirically-validated (science-based and very well researched) therapy aimed at providing relief from painful mood symptoms. CBT addresses present-day symptoms through structured educational experiences designed to teach you to identify and correct irrational thoughts and beliefs that contribute heavily to your mood issues.
I offer you a free initial office or Skype/video consultation. Like all psychotherapies, CBT requires a base of trust and a sense that the chemistry between you and I will work. There is no substitute for a meeting in order to figure out if this is the case.
