Do you find yourself frustrated by your teen’s behavior? Do you sometimes catch yourself wishing you were a better parent? Parenting can give you enormous rewards and also deeply challenge your limits. It can bring up experiences from your own upbringing that you thought you had left behind. I help parents address the stresses that come with parenting so they can focus on enjoying their relationship with their teen.

In my experience, we all find ourselves stumbling in life in some way or another. I have extensive training and experience working with clients that struggle with self harm, suffer from depression and anxiety, struggle with low self esteem, are working through couple and family conflicts, feel swallowed by shame and/or guilt, and are stumbling on their journey towards healing, self acceptance, and happiness. My role is to be the therapeutic resource that brings the overflowing tool box of options to use on your journey. Together, as a team, we find and follow what works best for you to meet your therapeutic goals.

Great Relationships aren’t great because they have no challenges or struggles. Great relationships are great because individuals choose to find a way to make the relationship work. Sometimes, that includes relationship/family counseling. As a family and relationship therapist, I am here to help you work through the many challenges and struggles that often prevent couples/families from moving forward. I believe in individualizing treatment to help each family member/partner feel heard and loved.

Everyone experiences life's ups and downs. Many of us though, experience issues in which we get "stuck", become ill, or which affect our relationships. In my 30+ years in practice as a therapist, I have encountered people whose problems run the gamut of life's experiences. In my professional training, I have learned many tools and concepts to help me help people. I believe the relationship that a person has with their therapist is one of those most important tools. I provide a safe, supportive therapeutic environment to listen and and to find ways to solve the problems people bring to therapy.

Even while using Telehealth options, we will engage with the green spaces near us. I combine ACT, Restoration Therapy, The Gottman Method, DBT, and story work all while staying in the present moment. Whatever goals you have for our sessions, we will discover or re-discover your values, strengths, find some beneficial coping skills, and help you awaken to new ways to live a full, wholehearted and alive life. I am convinced there is healing to be found in nature, and while I enjoy meeting with clients on trails, at parks, and near all types of trees, I will do my best to incorporate this intro our virtual sessions.

This is what I promise when you walk into my office you or your child will have a safe place to explore their feelings and emotions without judgment, and through their work with me, they will walk away with a better understanding of themselves. I believe that they really do have the answers and know how best to make the necessary changes in their lives. Sometimes, though, those answers are trapped and children can feel that they are unheard which can lead to behavioral problems and isolation.

The "language of children is play." I use expressive therapies like play,drama,sand,and art to help children process their problems and find answers. When a child plays out a solution to a problem he/she has the unique ability to actually experience success in the moment. I have taken extensive training to learn how to help children play out their problems. I am one of a very few Registered Play Therapist Supervisors in the state of Arizona.

Adoption Therapists
In recent years, psychologists have begun to investigate how adopted children and their adoptive families navigate their lives together. In an attempt to help children who have been adopted adjust and thrive in a new home, and to understand why problems may arise, studies look at the genetic as well as both prenatal and postnatal environmental influences on the development of children who have been adopted.
