“We cannot solve our problems with the same thinking we used when we created them” - Albert Einstein; For several years a major focus in my practice has been working with high functioning individuals affected by Autism Spectrum Disorder and their families. But, this hasn’t limited the breadth of my professional activities. People come to me with the “common cold” conditions of anxiety and depression as well, and for help with OCD. I provide psychological/ neuropsychological assessments for diagnostic clarity or to support applications for accommodations at work or school, public benefits, and for treatment planning.

All of us have problems during various seasons of our lives and could benefit from some additional assistance. Most people who enter counseling are well-functioning, competent individuals who are seeking help with difficult problems in their everyday life. Relationship conflicts, job stress, financial worries, emotional concerns, and family difficulties are common in our complicated, fast-paced world. Sometimes just trying to balance all of the demands in our lives can be too much to handle and leave us feeling overwhelmed, depressed, anxious, frustrated, or lonely.

When deciding if your child or adolescent could benefit from therapy services, it can be a stressful experience fueled by uncertainty. Whether your child is struggling with issues such as anxiety, depression, managing emotions/behavior, social skills, or issues at school, the goal of therapy is to identify the underlying cause and help the child develop the skills and tools necessary to better manage life's challenges. While addressing an individual child's specific challenges, it is also important to engage parents and other family members to identify how to best support long term positive change within the family unit.
