In addition to psychotherapy, I am also a Certified Anger Management Specialist and Certified Breakthrough Parenting Instructor.
I provide psychotherapy services to clients to help them explore their lives and find meaning in their relationships. I work to empower and encourage clients to be more self-aware, explore their feelings, and improve their ability to navigate their experiences. I like to explore a variety of therapeutic modalities to find what best suits each client as every client is different and one size does not fit all when it comes to treatment. I like to listen to my clients and ensure that what I'm hearing is what they are saying. I also like to let them know they have choices, especially since it's their well-being that we are discussing.

I work well with individuals who are seeking to learn more holistic ways to address their emotional and relational challenges whether they be family of origin issues, trauma, the challenges of parenting a child with special needs, chronic illness, anxiety, or depression. My general frame work is that you cannot separate the body from the mind nor can you separate a person from their life time of experiences, therefore working with all of these systems is a highly effective way to improve happiness, decrease anxiety and stress, and increase coping skills to manage life with more ease and improved relationships.

Anxiety, loneliness, and low self-esteem can affect children in unique ways. As a parent , you want your child to feel confident, secure, and safe - from societal standards, social media, bullying, and unfortunate circumstances. The truth is... events, people, and things have affected them in a way that matters to you, but getting your child to open up and divulge all that is happening within them is possibly VERY difficult. Sometimes the most confident person still can't find the words to say. Certain feelings and emotions live deep within your child. You're not alone in experiencing this and I can help.

: marriage, family planning); support for separated couples seeking to co- parent together; and Trauma-focused therapy.
I currently only offer online and in-home therapy. When we are in the midst of crisis we can question our abilities to overcome. Like quicksand, these self-defeating thoughts pull us even deeper into despair and we may become seduced by seclusion. Instead, I believe we should strive to accept our struggles as the catalysts that can bring us into closer connection with others and thus be more empowered to overcome. My practice of therapy involves helping people realize that to struggle is not unique and that connections with others during those times can be the difference between surrendering to weakness and reclaiming your strength.

I have had the pleasure of working with all age groups for over 30 years. Need help with your kids? Parenting education and training are important issues in my practice. In general, important goals in therapy include learning how to make the best decisions for oneself in day-to-day life and in developing basic problem solving strategies. Often, significant change can be made simply through the process of education and awareness, offered in a caring and compassionate environment. I use EFT in my practice to maximize symptom relief and minimize the need for extended time in therapy.

In a rapidly changing world, parenting can be subject to fads and changing styles, and parenting in some privileged circles has become a competitive sport. But the needs of child development as delineated by science remain relatively stable: safety, structure, support, and love.
