"My primary experience is working with children and adolescents and their families in coping with life's stressors, more significant mental health symptoms, and developing more effective coping styles and communication patterns. In treatment it is my goal to work alongside your child and you to find resources and coping skills to handle over-whelming experiences which are impacting you and your child's functioning. My dog Sammy, a therapy dog, is present during most sessions and can help support children suffering from anxiety around coming to therapy and providing a safe place to process difficult emotions."

"Are you living a life of "quiet desperation"? Get to the bottom of your problems by connecting with yourself. Psychotherapy can help identify and overcome blocks that prevent you from being your real self. Are you repeating patterns from childhood despite your best efforts not to? Those patterns were likely formed early in childhood as a survival mechanism and now that you no longer need those patterns, they feel like a prison. Psychotherapy provides the key that opens the door. If you are afraid that you cannot do this, please do not sell yourself short and give yourself a chance."

"I believe that effective psychotherapy enables clients to take control of their own feelings and behavior by gently uncovering the connections between past experiences and current difficulties. Positive change occurs in an atmosphere of responsibility and hope, and a respectful, dedicated therapist can effectively guide this process. I integrate straightforward communication and empathy in the context of steady, clear boundaries. I work with children and adults. Psychological services I provide include: psychodynamic therapy, play therapy, psychological evaluation, and family court and custody related interventions."

"Are you plagued by "What if..." thoughts? Feeling fear, worry, imagining the worse? Or consumed by negativity? Such internal self-talk can be debilitating, causing stress. It drives behavior, alters mood, interferes with sleep or appetite. Feeling stuck, unheard or frustrated? Unhappiness isn't permanent. Difficult situations at work, with your health or in your personal life can be navigated. Acceptance of your reality, or health issues, makes a significant difference. Let me help you feel more at peace, learn skillful ways to respond to those thoughts, and let go of the stress. I'll happily get you on a wellness track!"

"Therapy is a safe space to explore changes you'd like to make in yourself and in your relationships. Depression and anxiety are normal parts of the human experience and we all suffer to some degree, but when our normal coping skills fail us and we can't shake these feelings it's time to get support. Perhaps you need help uncovering what you need to change to improve your life. Or maybe you already know what you need to do but are struggling to make it happen. I can help you explore alternatives and achieve your goals. "

I listen well, draw from theory and practical experience to understand what my client is experiencing. I also consider what social pressures or situations impact your thinking/emotional states and what therapeutic approach might be most helpful.
