I love working with kids and their parents! Loud kids, active kids, mad kids, disruptive kids, depressed or anxious kids, unhappy teenagers with failing grades, school discipline issues or drug/alcohol problems. Whatever the problem, there is usually a fair amount of pain associated with it for everyone in the family. I provide a safe, nurturing environment for kids and their parents to get help.

I have a wide-ranging experience working with young children to adults. My therapy patients tend to be young adults and middle aged individuals. Affording insight in the lifespan is my goal, and I focus on reaching that goal in a number of different ways. Ultimately, I leave it to my clients to tell me where they want to go and we find a path to get there. Through better insight and goal-oriented purpose, we identify the outcomes to strive for.

Want PEACE? Need JOY! Life can get pretty overwhelming, right? You keep striving, struggling to keep it under control, if even for a moment. It's exhausting! You end up feeling stuck, burdened, anxious or depressed; not knowing where to turn or what steps to take. You lash out at others or judge and condemn yourself. You feel like you are coming up short of that 'best version' of yourself; the YOU that has always seemed just out of reach. I get it, I understand and I can help. In fact, helping people like you is my life's PASSION !

One of my abilities is to see peoples "best self", their potential, and to mirror it back to them in a way that supports them to take action. My goal is to create an inviting and non-judgemental environment in which to explore and actively pursue your emotional, personal, and professional growth. Providing a balance between support and challenge, we work collaboratively to identify patterns that are no longer useful and to develop strategies for change.

I listen carefully, objectively, with kindness and humor and without judgment. I respond with training, intuition, insight, honesty, and engage a variety of techniques to meet your presenting issue.

I believe that people seek meaning in their lives. Internal and external conflicts, difficult experiences, and the trials of life interfere with this human process, resulting in depression, anxiety and panic, personality and relationship difficulties, and gender and sexuality issues. I work collaboratively with patients to help them find better ways to deal with trauma, loss, anger, and self-defeating, repetitious behavior patterns. Psychotherapy and psychoanalysis work to enhance each person’s inner resources to create new coping strategies. The self-discovery that is the process and goal of psychotherapy and psychoanalysis enhances creativity and a life more fully lived.
