Individual Behavior Therapy
I help people make changes to improve their lives and to help them understand why they (and others) behave the way they do. Behavior therapy means that we will primarily look at what you do, the results of your current behavior, and how you could act more effectively to shape the life you want. And we'll take data to track your progress and make changes in real-time if your goals are not being met. I truly believe that everyone is doing the best they can in the moment, no matter how that may look to someone on the outside. Most human behavior that causes problems is a matter of someone wanting something very reasonable, but they may not necessarily have all the tools they need to achieve their goals. That's where our work begins.
In addition to a PhD in Applied Behavior analysis, I am a BCBA-D with an MS in Counseling. I am also a certified Sexuality Educator and Trainer. I have over a decade of experience providing 1:1 support, mentoring clinicians, and helping people change and better manage their behavior.
I have successfully treated behaviors associated with depression, anxiety, OCD, borderline personality disorder, acquired/traumatic brain injury, bipolar disorder, ADHD, and so on. The diagnosis is less important to me than why you behave the way you do, and how we can make changes to promote healthier behavior.
Behavior Therapy includes continuous data collection and evaluation of progress. If the data doesn't show the changes we were hoping for, we try something else.
