I provide individual and family therapy.
It is often said, "children are the future." Then, let's work together to provide your child/adolescent support and guidance they need. Children/adolescents are going through many changes: physically, emotionally, and cognitively, and sometimes tough times come up. Do you find yourself asking, “Is my child sad?” “Is my child okay?” “I don’t know how to help my child?” or “As a family , we need help” It is okay to ask these questions and I am here to help. I am a passionate clinician that wants to help you, help your child/adolescent be prepared for the future.

Major life transitions such as college, career, marriage, parenting, work- family balance or empty nesting can bring upon anxiety, depression and increased conflict.
I have designed a practice to be responsive to your contemporary needs in your life - through VIRTUAL interactive therapy appointments that effectively utilize the natural setting you are in. I have found that therapy can be even more useful by meeting you in the context you are in. Meeting you while you are parenting can better tackle your parenting goals. Mind-body health goals can be achieved even better when we use therapy virtually while you’re on a walk. Teaching you to take valuable breaks in your day, is a therapy approach that can be even more helpful as you reset from your office. This is not your average teletherapy.

To see if I'm a good fit for you or your family member please contact me for a free a phone consultation.
I strive to provide an inclusive feeling in my practice where everyone’s uniqueness is embraced, explored, and celebrated. I utilize a variety of modalities including Psychodynamic, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, DBT, and Mindfulness. After practicing for more than 20 years what I have learned is that therapy is not one size fits all, success and progress look different for each person, everybody is doing their best always no matter what, and in the end the best predictor of treatment success is the relationship we create in our work together. If we can build a trusting relationship then the journey will be successful.

I take a holistic & clinical approach to assess one's lifestyle, family dynamics, strengths/limitations, and current dilemmas.
I enjoy seeing the relief and joy return to my client's lives again once they learn new ways to cope and manage life. Therapy works quickly when one is ready to change. I can really motivate and inspire new ways to live using multiple techniques to create immediate and lasting change. We all want a high quality of life, yet have limited amounts of time. Changes can occur even coming to counseling every other week or monthly. It can even be done online if you're busy traveling or have a hectic schedule. Self care is something we all must do to have a balanced life that is healthy in mind, body and spirit. Are you caring for yourself?

I am a Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist with additional training in EMDR.
Am I the right therapist for you? Helping client's is the primary goal of every therapist. What can you do for me that the others can't? That is a valid question. Many healthcare providers provide symptom management rather than treating the main problem. I mainly use Solution Focused Therapy to focus on client's present and future and to find solutions for their problems. The therapy is not about me; its about you. However, in addition to my years of education, I bring a life-time of personal life experience and an extensive personal knowledge to the sessions.
