Are you wondering how to best support your struggling child? You may find yourself at a loss after reading and researching, wishing you could optimize your parenting intuition and do what's best for YOUR child. The infancy, toddler, and childhood years provide a unique opportunity for families looking to rise above old patterns, and I gently support you in taking hold of this moment to set your child up for a lifetime of mental and relational wellness. Rather than someone to fix your child, you need an expert who can empower you to guide your child through the challenges of life.

I work with motivated, loving clients and with folks who are ready to heal from childhood wounding. My clients engage in self-study, discovering who they are and how to love and re-parent themselves. I work with teens, young adults, and families. I offer parent coaching to parents who want to learn how to effectively communicate and intervene with their children. My style is warm, curious, direct, and relationship focused. In the course of our work together, my clients learn skills that are accessible yet powerful. I've been in the field over eighteen years and feel lucky to support such incredible people on their healing path.

It is the goal of us all to have the chance to live in the wonder of our real selves. But we often find ourselves in an outside life that doesn't match the inside one. We can spend years struggling with making decisions, dealing with sadness and anger, anxiety and grief, as well as distrust, fear and longing, all overwhelming feelings and the behavior that goes with them, not knowing how to change but knowing we must. My job is to help you get back to and live the wonder that is the real you.

Often times, feelings of anxiety, depression, and fear can leave us paralyzed and unable to achieve our goals and find real fulfillment. I believe that through therapy and the relationship created in the therapeutic process, people can confront and overcome the feelings that may be keeping them from fully realizing their potential. As a therapist my goal is to create a safe, nurturing, non-judgmental environment in which you can explore feelings, resolve painful issues from the past and present, improve relationships and achieve fulfillment.

Being human is exciting and beautiful... and challenging! My work is grounded in respect and empathy for how individuals, couples, and families pave a path in life. Together we make change possible by bringing your unique, personal knowledge and experience into awareness, and then moving through the stuckness of painful trauma, unkind thoughts, or feelings of powerlessness before problems. Together we will work to reconnect you to the whole experience of being human: feeling emotions, attuning to thoughts and beliefs, creating healthy relationships, and recognizing your whole life story in its complexity of joy, sorrow, and growth.

I want to extend a warm and empathetic welcome to you as you consider taking this important step towards healing and growth. Whether your goals are centered around personal growth, resolving family conflicts, or addressing your child's emotional needs, my commitment is to provide a safe, non-judgmental space where healing and positive change can occur. Often times, children lack the ability to communicate their internal state with words. I utilize play in child therapy to help them express their emotions, process traumatic experiences, and develop problem-solving skills in a safe and supportive environment.

I have been a therapist working with children, adolescents, families, individuals and couples for over 30 years. My interest is that individuals feel seen, heard, and understood from their point of view and that they are able to do the same for another. I believe that if individuals, couples and families are able to provide this safe environment, awareness grows, and real change can happen. My speciality in the last 25 years has been working with gender non-conforming children, adolescents, and their families.

What we seek in our partner is connection. Deep, relaxed, secure connection is the springboard to passion. I help couples re-connect and stay connected by enhancing the positive, eliminating the negative and becoming each other's advocate. I help singles identify patterns that have haunted past relationships and help find and forge a new kind of loving partnership. Anxiety, depression and addictions all stem from, or are fueled by, deficient early connections. Learning the skill and discipline to navigate a conscious romantic relationship can heal much of the past and free us from many restricting thoughts, feelings and behaviors.
