I have been working with children , teens and adults for almost 20 years in private practice. Prior to that, I worked in schools and at counseling agencies. I see clients of all ages using a combined approach of Cognitive Behavior and Psychodynamic therapies. However, I recognize that one size does not fit all when it comes to therapy, so I tailor my approach to the individual needs of each client.

I have spent my career providing therapy services to children and teenagers, ranging from toddlers to college-aged individuals, and young adults, as well as providing support services to parents and families.
Youth, adolescence, and early adulthood often involve significant transitions and times of uncertainty, and therapy can provide a supportive environment when there are challenges with navigating and managing these changes. I enjoy providing therapy to children , teenagers, and young adults, as well as working with parents to determine how they can best support and foster the well-being of their children . I conduct therapy in a positive, open, non-judgmental, and culturally-sensitive manner, and I am flexible in working with each client in a way that best suits his or her specific needs.

I am passionate about child development and have specialty in working with numerous childhood disorders presenting in early childhood and on (aged 2-16yrs), trauma disorders, challenges to family functioning such as intergenerational difficulties and parent- child relationship problems.
I strive to facilitate a dialogue that both empowers and engages clients in their own self-healing, valuing the co-creation of a transformative narrative and experience. As a licensed clinical psychologist, experienced in treating both children and adults, I view emotional and behavioral challenges as a dynamic outcome that develops as a result of complex interactions across time, as opposed to something inherently "broken" inside an individual.

I believe children and teens can learn, grow, and thrive when they have coping skills, feel empowered, and practice self-care. My goal is to encourage youth to learn who they are and how to advocate for their unique needs. I specialize in working with neurodiverse, gifted and twice-exceptional (2e) youth and their families. I encourage youth to use their strengths and interests in order to grow, heal, and cope. Building self-awareness, such as understanding their own sensory processing and asynchronous development, is an important part of my work with youth.

With 22 years of experience of working with family upheaval, foster care and physical and sexual abuse, Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, and domestic violence, I enjoy being present for those working on the above issues. Issues of loss and grief, parenting skills or a new life direction. In recent years, I have come to love working with families and siblings of children diagnosed with Autism. Many times these family members are left with no support in the day in and day out living with a child or sibling with Autism. Chronic pain is also a major interest of mine.

Clients with questions or concerns about their children frequently bring them to me because I have 30+ years of experience with children and have observed and worked with literally hundreds of them (especially birth to 6).
Are you experiencing a crisis? Anxious? Having problems sleeping? Not sure what to do but know something needs to be done and quick? I would like to help you feel better. Almost twenty years in private practice have provided me with a wide range of experience in stabilizing crises and developing treatment plans to meet your goals. Typically, I draw from psychodynamic, family systems, and cognitive behavioral theories and work primarily with adults and adolescents. It is of the utmost importance to me to offer an emotionally safe space, where you can know with certainty that you can be yourself without fear of judgment.

By providing a safe and supportive environment, clients are able to explore new approaches to ongoing life challenges. Some techniques I use suggest that our thoughts effect how we behave. Therefore, if we change the way we think, we may notice changes in our overall mood and behavior. My optimistic and caring style support self growth and empowerment. Part of my role as a therapist is to help my clients establish realistic goals that bring about positive change. I enjoy working with children , adolescents and adults.

Psychotherapist are all different & it is important to find someone who fits well with your needs. We have all experienced moments of feeling like a failure, or where work doesn't give us the joy we started with, or family seems to be disappointed in our actions, or perhaps friends seem un-supportive. Sometimes we can fix things on our own, and sometimes we need extra help. I look forward to collaborating with you in order to bring you back to where you or where you want your Children to be... back to a feeling of living a happy, secure and fulfilling life.

In every phase of life, we are presented with new challenges: stress, issues at work, challenging relationships, feeling stuck, depression, difficulties with your kids, difficulties with your parents, pain, loss, anxiety, fear. It is not always easy to manage these challenges when they come our way, and sometimes we just need some support in processing it all, and figuring out what to do next. Everyone needs support, therapy is for everyone. In my practice, I want to get to know you, understand your challenges, understand your needs, and understand your goals. Together we can work toward overcoming the challenges you are facing.
