Lastly I am seeing young adults struggling with the transition to college.
My ideal client is a child or adolescent who is aware of the issues that are bothering them and want help. These are clients whose parents are comfortable with them seeing a therapist and are able to speak openly with them about their diagnoses. When I am asked how long I see a client, I do not give a definite time since I have learned that issues are challenged as they make the transition to new schools or jobs. I let parents know that I take a developmental approach to psychopathology. We may stop when symptoms decrease and their coping capacity increases. If they return it is not a sign of failure but different stresses.

My typical client is a child or young adult who is struggling in school. My job is to determine why he or she is struggling and to prescribe solutions. To do this I must have a full picture of the individual's strengths and areas of need. I also see adults and seniors. I have many years of experience of assisting people of a wide variety of ages and assist parents through the school system and through their lives. Please call if you have questions that I might be able to answer.

I have been practicing psychotherapy for more 18 years, and I offer psychotherapy for adolescents, couples, and adults ; both on a short and long-term basis.
My particular expertise and interest is in working with survivors of trauma, abuse and victimization. Having survived trauma, abuse and victimization can lead to a variety of outcomes. Some people survive trauma with no problems at all, while other people develop anxiety, depression, substance use, personality or relationship issues. Various traumatic events, such as parental divorce or substance abuse, are very common even in middle class populations and have often both physical and psychological effects many years after the experienced trauma.

I see individual adults and older couples who are looking to examine their connection.
There are many reasons you may be seeking therapy: you may want help with a specific issue (divorce, loss, depression, anxiety), you may not be exactly sure why you want help other than a vague sense that things aren't right, or you may be experiencing discontent, anxiety or depression even though you function at a high level and are living a "good" life.

I have over 10 years of experience working with adults , couples, and families in various capacities.
Our life experiences can lead us to question our identity and purpose in the world we live in. This can lead us to anxiety, depression, and trauma. Do you want to improve how you face challenges, function in your relationships, and face overwhelming feelings? I place heavy importance on addressing trauma. Trauma disintegrates the parts that make up your whole self, which can leave aspects of who you are hidden from your awareness. Left unaddressed, anxiety and depression can worsen, which can rob you of the necessary connection that all human beings need to thrive. I aim to help you process unresolved trauma.

I have over 10 years of experience working with adults and teens struggling with anxiety, depression, trauma and issues of identity.
Sometimes life’s events can be overwhelming, making everyday activities and incidents even more difficult to handle. These experiences can lead to sadness, anxiety, insecurity, feelings of isolation, and even an immense feeling of loss or being lost. It is in these moments that having a safe, confidential and non-judgemental space to talk to someone can be the most helpful. As a therapist, I provide a space where we can work collaboratively to reflect and gain insight on these cycles, where they come from and how they impact our choices and behaviors to make healthy and sustainable changes in our lives.
