I function in many roles within the Family Court system as a child custody evaluator, reconnection therapist and co-parent counselor.
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'm particularly interested in providing psychoeducation, support and family psychotherapy with the parents, siblings, adult children and close family friends of adults who experience psychiatric and/or substance abuse symptoms. They have often neglected their own needs in the wake of the intense focus they have placed on their troubled loved ones, and they may be overwhelmed and confused by the symptoms, medications, diagnoses, systems of care and treatment options available. We can start with three to five sessions to review symptoms, medications, and the general understandings that the family has already gained.

I provide individual, couples, and family therapy. I work with families with both teenage (ages 15+) and adult children. When working with teens, I take a family therapy approach and involve both the adolescent and the parents. With individuals, I work with adults on issues such as anxiety, past trauma, stress, relationship issues, boundary setting, assertiveness, self-criticism, and overall enhancement of their wellbeing, happiness, and life satisfaction. With couples, I primarily utilize Emotionally Focused Couples Therapy but also pull from other couples therapy modalities such as Gottman.

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. Psychological services for children and adults include psychodynamic therapy, play therapy, and family court related interventions.
