I have been a professional psychotherapist for the past 30 years. Early in my career, most of my focus was on the treatment of children, adolescents and families, often referred some of the most difficult cases from local schools, courts and police departments. As my practice evolved, so did my experience working with adult individuals and couples. Practical experience and continued professional training has enhanced my abilities to work with a variety of personal struggles that include depression and mood disorders, anxiety disorders, alcohol and substance abuse and relationship struggles with couples and families.

As a Clinical Psychologist in practice for over 25 years, I specialize working with adults working through the barriers that keep them stuck in unproductive patterns that limit their life potential. Hardships, losses, and traumas often create beliefs that are self-limiting. These beliefs often stand in the way of the life you want to live. Counseling can be a powerful pathway toward discovering and developing your unique and whole self. Counseling starts with facing the pain that prompts you to seek help. Facing the starting point of anger, anxiety, depression, loss, or relationship pain leads to the work of therapy.

Recently, a significant amount of people have endured many changes. Some of us have been forced to slow down, to disconnect from our many distractions, to cancel various plans. Isolation has increased exponentially for many. Perhaps you are realizing that you have been avoiding some much needed healing. For many, the fears we have been forced to face have resulted in confusing emotions - anger or despair - or perhaps you are feeling totally numb. All of these responses are normal. You can get through life with increased resiliency and confidence in your ability to not only survive, but ultimately thrive.

In an enriching and creative environment, I develop a personally tailored blend of art therapy and counseling techniques to help clients from infancy to adulthood move through life’s challenges. I utilize art and play therapy with young children to address behavioral challenges, life transitions, anxiety, attachment, and self esteem. Parents and adults can receive support through infertility, pregnancy loss, anxiety, depression, and improving your bond with your child. The art process acts as a “second language” by providing a safe way of accessing feelings that may be difficult to articulate in words alone.

I have been in counseling practice for 25 years. Over this time I have noticed one constant theme: people often do not know how to address their emotional and relational pain. Unresolved emotional pain leads them to develop coping methods that increase their hurt and isolation. What if there was a way to make sense of this pain, learn to cope and even thrive, despite what life has offered? My passion is to help people understand themselves well and move to empowerment that brings hope and solutions, enabling them to thrive.

I believe that people have primary accountability for their own lives, and that within each of us is the power and capacity to make choices that will lead to happiness and fulfillment. However, sometimes there are obstacles that must first be overcome (for example, anger, depression, trauma, anxiety, sexual identity issues, relationship problems, etc.) to be able to make healthy choices. I assist my clients along their journey of self-discovery as they learn how to empower themselves to overcome their obstacles. They then are able to make choices that will lead them to the life they want to have.
