Epiphany's Mission

Turning on change: Creating meaningful, lasting change by acquiring new insight, understanding, and skills.


Areas of Practice

I work with people to help address difficulties in the following areas:

  • Trauma / PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder)

  • OCD (Obsessive Compulsive Disorder), Hoarding, Social Anxiety, and General Anxiety

  • Depression

  • Addictions (alcohol, drugs, gambling), both non-12 Step and 12 Step approaches

  • Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender (LGBT) or sexuality-related concerns

  • Dual diagnosis

  • Grief

  • Stress or other life transitions

Therapeutic Approach

I provide research-backed therapy with results in mind. My work as a cognitive-behavioral therapist focuses on teaching you new ways of acting and thinking in order to change patterns of thought and behaviors that cause distress.  I do this in a way that demystifies  therapy.

I believe one of the key ingredients in successfully helping you is understanding your life and problems as you do. By listening carefully and with empathy, I'll often check in during session to make sure I am understanding things as you do through your eyes. I avoid making assumptions; there's nothing more frustrating than having your therapist "not get it". By combining my professional expertise and understanding of human behavior, alongside your existing understanding of your problems, we'll move towards measurable and achievable results.  I will continuously evaluate your progress and make adjustments, as needed, with your input. Therapy is a team effort.


I also value approaching treatment from a "wellness" perspective—seeing the whole person and integrating multiple practices that increase your well-being. Your work towards well-being does not stop inside the therapy room. We will integrate many different types of wellness practices into your treatment. For some, that may mean addressing diet, exercise, body work (i.e.,massage), spirituality, meditation. There are many paths to wisdom and wellness.

I rely on  evidenced based practices  to address concerns centering around substance use, trauma, anxiety, and depression. Evidenced based practices are those treatments for which there exists systematically examined research evidence that attests to their effectiveness and utility  across multiple settings and for multiple people. For example, Cognitive Processing Therapy (CPT) for Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) or Mindfulness Based Relapse Prevention (MBRP) for substance abuse are two types of evidenced based practice. If you wish to learn more, the Association for Cognitive and Behavioral Therapy has an excellent brief article on this type of practice.  Asking about the TYPE of treatment you will receive is just as important as evaluating the cost, duration of therapy sessions, types of insurance accepted, availability of suitable appointment times, and any other factor that might impact your therapy.
