"My "ideal" patient is ready to make changes s/he has long wanted and feels able to explore the barriers to emotional well-being in partnership with an experienced therapist. Building a healthy relationship in therapy is not only essential to immediate goals, but is a skill that patients take away for use with on-going problem-solving."

"Does your family have extra challenges because of adoption (and pre-adoption history), attachment problems, trauma, loss, divorce, or other complications? I work with children, teens, and parents who are struggling with issues most families don't have to deal with--issues like abandonment, abuse, insecure attachment/RAD, child/teen anxiety and depression, out-of-control behavior, and post traumatic stress. When parents feel lost, frustrated, overwhelmed, or scared, therapy can help restore hope, promote attachment, develop new skills and new understanding, and return children to a healthy developmental trajectory. What's overwhelming becomes manageable, enhancing family relationships and functioning."

"My work is with individuals and couples who are ready to roll up their sleeves and get down to the task of making transformative shifts in their lives. Often people come to therapy believing that our history makes us who we are. Using the therapy relationship as a secure base from which to explore, clearing away the clutter and loosening a few knots, we often find that our history has obscured who we really are. In some way, most of us are longing for a sense of well-being that is not wholly dependent on external circumstances."
