At any age, there are developmental, transitional and often unexpected circumstances that challenge us in life. Be it aspects of parenting , the social or emotional challenges of being a child or teenager, or concerns about life transitions as an adult, my approach is safe and comfortable. I work from a place of patience, sincerity, humor and nonjudgement. I want the counseling experience for my clients to feel helpful, worthwhile and to be a journey to better understanding and personal growth.

I also have experience in teaching classes to families who are adopting internationally, parenting classes, anger management, and social skills classes with elementary school children.
I offer therapy for individuals, children, adolescents, and families. I work with my clients from an attachment based framework. Underlying my approach in working with clients is the understanding that what really gives us resilience and emotional health is the experience of being securely connected with other people and particularly those who are closest to us.

My areas of expertise are in parenting techniques, anger and stress reduction techniques, cognitive behavioral therapy and short term-therapy.
Is your child experiencing challenging behaviors? Have you or a family member had a recent stressful event or transition? Having trouble with intense emotional responses or reactions? Has there been a trauma that is causing anxiety or upset in your family? Families can become overwhelmed by stage-of-life transitions, can be at a loss as to how to help their intensely emotional children, or address the special and behavioral needs of individual family members or children. I will help you assess and plan for these special needs and develop a family behavior plan that targets specific areas for positive change.

It's all about relationships, starting with your relationship to yourself, your family of origin, your partner, children, friends. And then there's the relationship to your problems: things like depression, anxiety, ADHD, post-partum and parenting stress, body-image problems. How do you work with the set of challenges that life hands you? I work with clients to understand themselves and their own story, and then apply that understanding, in the form of coping and problem-solving skills, to their relationships, to get through life's pain and into a life worth living.

For all of its rewards, parenting is also incredibly challenging. Do you find yourself thinking . . . I dread putting her to bed every night because I know it will be a struggle. I can't go to the grocery store because he always has a meltdown at checkout. We'll never to able to go out to eat as a family. Why does he only eat yellow foods?! You're not alone. Many parents struggle with how to address their child's challenging behaviors. My goal is to teach you how to use behavioral strategies to turn chaos into calm.

I've also done extensive educational lecturing and have run numerous groups on topics concerning family recovery from substance abuse, parenting issues, and helping young adults (and their parents) with the changes and developmental challenges that are inherent in healthy emotional growth.
My goal is to help empower people to live their lives as fully as possible. I believe we all want to feel safe and understood in the context of our unique histories and present circumstances. However,there are times when everyone gets stuck. We may come to desire help letting go of the pain from our past so we might develop new joyful and productive ways to live our lives now. I've done this work with individuals, couples and families, in private practice and in agencies for the past 27 years.

Possibly your relationships are strained or unsatisfying. Maybe you're struggling with parenting a teenager, or you are a teenager wanting someone to listen? These are all areas of interest to me. I have worked with individuals, couples for over 22 years and am still amazed that while therapy is often not easy, it is truly worth the effort for most people.

Welcome, glad you're here. Let's be honest, life often is messy and can feel like a struggle. And yet, what if beneath trauma, disappointments, frustrations, or seemingly poor life choices lie seeds of growth that just need some watering? What if you already contain the ingredients essential for thriving? Might your relationships as well? In my view therapy provides a sacred like opportunity where one is offered a chance to experience renewed vitality, meaning, and an invigorated sense of mind, body, spirit, and soul. A space where the genius in you or perhaps the potentials lying in relationships and parenting roles can emerge.

It's been too long since you felt peaceful, present, and comfortable-if ever. Your brain is always going–worried about the future, criticizing yourself about the past, & highly sensitive to how you think people are responding to you in the present. The thoughts in your head affect your body, too, with tension in your muscles, uneasiness in your gut, and a heartbeat that amps up at the drop of a hat. You can barely remember what it's like to be relaxed; just getting through the day takes work and sleep is hard to come by. Now it's impacting your health, work, parenting , and relationships. It's hard not to feel hopeless.
