The teen years are important years in the development of your child and how they navigate these early life stressors sets a foundation for the rest of their lives.
I believe every individual is an unfolding story. Each decision we make, both big and small, effects our storyline; As an eclectic therapist, I use many approaches because I don't believe in a one-size-fits-all therapy. Each person has learned beliefs they bring into new relationships. Helping to uncover how those beliefs effect their lives is often key to the source of their problems and being able to decide what works for them.

All of us at some point need support and understanding when dealing with the challenges of life. I have over 20 years of experience working with children , adolescents, adults, and families to improve their relationships, and communication skills. I also enjoy working with pre-school and kindergarten age. With young children I use proven techniques such as play therapy, sand tray, and puppet play to help children explore their feelings. I will also have experience providing groups for children and adults dealing with anger management, grief and loss, conflict resolution, divorce, and social skills.

We are accepting new clients. Are you feeling anxious or depressed? Are you unsure how to get the life you want? Are you the parent of a child or teen and you can see that they are struggling? Sometimes negative thinking, anxious thoughts, unhealthy relationship patterns, previous traumas, (or something else) holds us back from reaching our true potential. It's during these times, that it's difficult to see your value and the strengths you bring to yourself and others. It doesn't have to stay this way. Therapy is an opportunity for you to work with someone to get the life you have always wanted - and to feel good again!

I started my practice in 1994 with a desire to help people through their difficult situations. As a father my heart goes out to children . I strive to meet people where they are and help them become the best they can be. The majority of my practice is made up of children and teens but I also work with a number of adults and couples. It is important to note not everyone is ready to face their struggles or change their situation. While I would like to help everyone the person must be ready and motivated for therapy to be effective.

I work with children who have experienced trauma, including young children (non-verbal to 6 years old).
As a therapist, my goal is to help people find healthy and successful ways to heal from the past and grow into the best version of themselves. I believe that we are all seeking to live purpose filled lives and want healthy relationships with those we love. Though this can be challenging, my passion is walking with people to a point of fulfillment and ultimately, to a point where my clients no longer need me. Through consistent work in therapy, using a variety of individualized techniques and therapeutic modalities, it is my hope that my clients truly feel supported and empowered.

These experiences have taught me the importance of maintaining compassion for others even when they are in extreme states or are easily wounded. Working with different cultures has taught me to respect the world view and values of others. My background helps me to understand struggles of all types with a greater depth and sensitivity. All problems, worries and concerns are significant and deserving of a serious approach.

Is your teen or pre-teen struggling and you know they need help, but you are not sure where to start? Would you like them to talk to someone who specializes in adolescents? I can help your child and your family get through the rough patches. I help with a wide variety of teen and pre-teen issues including depression, anxiety, school attendance, substance abuse and family conflict. I also have expertise and experience working with transgender and gender non-conforming youth, and helping parents and families through the transition experience from a gender positive approach. If you are a parent and you are here looking for help, I know already that you are your child ’s advocate. You are in your child ’s corner. That support is a powerful force in their life, and so important for resilience, but when your child is struggling it can be so scary and so hard to know what to do. With grown kids of my own, I’ve been there as a parent through the rocky times too. I can help. Give me a call.

You need an ally to help you navigate the ups and downs of parenting, better understand the changes your child is going through, and learn some new tools to help you navigate the twists and turns of parenthood.
*Currently accepting in-person and telehealth clients* As a parent, you can't help but worry about your child or teen. Tantrums, arguments with teachers or peers, and growing defiance are making you worry. You're doing the best you can, but it still doesn't seem like enough. This leaves you feeling frustrated, lost and alone.

In helping children and families address trauma-related problems, I use an approach called Trauma Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (TF-CBT).
I am honored to do the work of holding space for individuals and families as they process through past and ongoing traumatic and distressing experiences. Integrating Trauma and Attachment-Focused Therapies, Play and Art Therapy, Mindfulness, Existentialism, and Psycho-education, I assist clients in healing and growing from what they have experienced in life. We are incredibly resilient and the strength within us sometimes needs a little guidance when we find ourselves in the dark. We will likely look at communication issues, attachment, choosing more effective coping strategies, and finding new ways to make life full and meaningful.

You are a courageous person! If you have come this far in your search for support, this is what I have found to be true: you have tried every strategy you know to find relief from whatever is troubling you. It is painful to keep watching the people you love struggle. You would do anything to make things better, but you feel stuck. You are not alone.

When our children 's hearts have been broken, our hearts break, too. Parents often struggle with knowing how to care for a hurting child : when or how much to comfort; when or if to discipline, how to set appropriate boundaries,, the list goes on. The child 's behaviors can be challenging. A parent's own unhealed wounds get triggered. Then, there's the parenting guilt! It can be overwhelming. We understand and we are here to help.

Two decades of experience in working with gender non-binary children , teens and their families.
As human beings we can develop painful, dysfunctional habits that keep us from connecting fully to self and others. At those times an objective therapist using a variety of approaches can help reconnect with self and others in healthier, more collaborative ways. I know that strong, collaborative interpersonal relationships provides the healing force for our emotional wounds and other stressors. Target populations: couples, children and teens struggling with control of Type I Diabetes, Gender Identity questions and transitions; firefighters and police officers experiencing acute and chronic stress related symptoms at work and home.
