I know how difficult it can be dealing with depression, anxiety, and trauma. I have years of experience in treating these issues using evidenced-based approaches such as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), and Eye-Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR). I have almost 15 years of experience in treating a variety of concerns, including suicidal thoughts, self-harming behavior, relationship problems, and gender and sexual identity issues. I take a holistic, collaborative approach and view my clients as partners in our work together. I offer a non-judgmental perspective and can provide training in emotion regulation, mindfulness, and interpersonal skills or just be a neutral sounding board. My goal for all of my clients is that they discover a life than is meaningful and worth living. I look forward to the chance to work with you and help you reach your goals.
I am also a certified yoga instructor and enjoy hiking and running. I am a parent of a young child and active in animal rescue work. Reading is another of my favorite pastimes and I am happy to suggest books or authors that may be helpful to a particular client's situation.

Moriah is excellent at picking out what is going on when I am rambling. She helps me make sense of my monkey mind. Moriah has the ability to give me many different skills to try and curb my behavior as we deal with the deep-down issues. She reminds me that I am human and validates how I feel at any given time. She listens and helps me figure out my options. She encourages me not to give up. Best coach I have ever met, I tried therapy years ago, but things were going badly so I gave up. Moriah lets me know that the fact I am showing up means I am ready. We just clicked!

Moriah is attentive, responsive, non judgemental and takes a very direct approach to therapy. Highly recommended.

I have only just begun therapy for the first time in my life. Talking with Moriah has already been greatly helpful. Her communication skills have been very open and honest. She shows patience and confidence in her non-judgmental answers and discussions. I feel I can confidently trust in her listening skills and her respectful ways to challenge areas in need of development and growth.

Moriah has been great to work with. Not someone to just talk to, but the prompts of certain questions or statements help me refrain my thoughts and validate my feelings. This really helps figure out next steps to take.
