I provide child, adolescent and adult psychotherapy for a variety of issues, including anxiety, low self esteem, trauma, adoption and loss. With these kinds of issues, play and art therapy interventions are helpful for children and adolescents. For clients struggling with anxiety and developmental issues such as Autism, ADHD, a more didactic, cognitive-behavioral strategy oriented approach can be used. My work with adults is psychodynamically based with use of strategies from dialectical and cognitive therapies as warranted. Another important component of my practice is neuropsychological assessment for learning, attention, social and emotional issues in children, adolescents and adults.

How we express and address trauma or anxiety is based on factors from our very own life story. I work with individuals to help identify how PTSD and mental preoccupation affect daily life, then help reconnect the mind and body using movement, fitness or art. This approach is holistic and unique. If you experience racing thoughts, nightmares, anxiety/depression, anger, have been a victim of violence or abuse, we can look at your story together to re-write. If you're an athlete experiencing performance stagnation or want to increase physical performance, addressing mental strength and health is where to begin.

Treatment is built on collaborative goals and tailored from different developmentally appropriate evidence based techniques, including cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), narrative therapy as well as both play and art therapy.
Kids are under enormous pressure at home, in school and with peers. These pressures can present themselves in many ways -- as childhood anxiety, adolescent depression, or school behavioral problems. My focus is on making your child feel heard, while providing them with a tool belt of coping mechanisms that can be accessed whenever they are feeling overwhelmed. Your child will build self-esteem along with practical emotional awareness and regulation skills that can be incorporated into their daily lives.

It may look like a craft class, but art therapy in 11201 is a serious technique that uses the creative process to help improve the mental health of clients. 11201 Art therapy can be used on children and adults to treat a wide range of emotional issues, including anxiety, depression, family and relationship problems, abuse and domestic violence, and trauma and loss. Commonly found in hospitals and community centers, art therapy programs are based on the belief that the creative process is healing and life-enhancing. As they paint or draw, a skilled 11201 art therapist can use the client's works of art and their approach to the process as springboards to help them gain personal insight, improve their judgment, cope with stress, and work through traumatic experiences.
