Out cultural institutions do not prepare us for the diversity of experience we face as adults. Conformity to outdated rules of thinking and acting do not work in situations that invite flexibility and adaptiveness. Rigid thinking patterns are maladaptive and lead to frustration, stress, and depression. We are led to believe we "should" be able to solve problems through mastery of our behavior and feelings, but it's just that demand to control things that leads to a identity. confusion. Therapy is not education: I don't work from a lesson plan that has all the right answers. We will work your story 'till it makes sense.

I provide therapy for children, adolescents, adults, couples & families.
The path to living the life you want begins where courage and fear meet. When we are low in courage and high in fear we feel unsettled, busied, strained and eventually-void of hope. The thought that life will get better or that we will feel better becomes hijacked by the void. Our day to day begins to feel meaningless. This absence of meaning can be experienced as emptiness, sadness, loneliness, despair and misery. It can also be experienced as restlessness, irritability, avoidance, stomachaches, headaches and illness. These experiences drive our thoughts, beliefs, decisions and behaviors and can lead to mental and physical decline.

My practice focuses on psychological evaluations for children, adolescents, adults, and seniors. Some reasons folks seek my help is to assess for autism, intellectual deficits, learning disorders, ADHD, as well as to address possible depression/anxiety that often accompany these conditions. In some cases, I am asked to perform testing to inform the efficacy of ADHD/ADD medication through the use of continuous performance testing. My approach is to learn about the whole person rather than rely on tests alone to produce an evaluation best suited to your needs.

For over thirty years, I have worked with children, adolescents, young and mature adults in a safe and warm environment, utilizing various therapeutic approaches tailored to meet individual needs.
We live our lives in search of happiness, fulfillment, enrichment, and balance through our relationships, families, jobs and career. These areas can become demanding, stressful and even overwhelming. We face challenging situations of life transitions, grief and loss, family dynamics, trauma and abuse. As a result, we experience symptoms of depression, anxiety, anger, and other moods. This is a good time to consider seeking professional help. The journey of psychotherapy can be challenging, yet it is often healing and rewarding.

From young adults struggling to find identity and sense of direction to mature adults struggling to find sense of meaning and purpose after milestones with family and/or career are met, I find that there is hidden strength, hope, and a unique self waiting to be discovered and nurtured.
The decision to pursue counseling is an extremely important and personal one. And, finding the right therapist is a crucial part of the process. I have been practicing in the field for 25 years and have worked in a variety of settings with adults and adolescents. In addition to having extensive experience in helping those who have suffered grief and loss, I am particularly skilled at working with highly sensitive individuals who are struggling with anxiety, depression, life transitions, interpersonal relationships, developmental issues, and identifying, understanding, and changing repetitive patterns that do not serve them.
