I believe parents need to grow in response to their maturing children.
Now accepting clients for the 23-24 school year. I am fascinated by the resilience of the human body/mind to withstand stress and continue to grow. How we evolve in reaction to adversity can be automatic or we can learn to have more choice in our responsiveness. Therapy is the process of learning to slow down, reflect, and move forward with greater influence over our actions. Connecting teens with the ability to be self-reflective early in their lives will be a resource as they mature. Adolescence is a potent time to intervene with self-destructive behaviors and course correct for success.

About half of my practice is with adults and couples and the other half is with adolescents and children.
Therapy can be a source of tremendous relief and gratification. Unhappiness and anxiety that feel unbearable can lessen and disappear when you have someone who can help you understand the reasons for your suffering. A good therapist can also help you more easily get your mind off upsetting thoughts that preoccupy you. Or if you find yourself acting in self-defeating ways, studying it with a therapist can be of enormous help. Ideally, you will leave an initial consultation with a new way of thinking about the problem that brought you in.

Adolescence can be a very challenging time for teens and their families. Although developmentally it is a particularly wonderful time of exploration and curiosity for teens, sometimes things do not go as expected. Individual adolescent therapy and sessions incorporating parents and /or families can make this time much easier to negotiate. I see primarily adolescents, and often incorporate parents and families into treatment planning. Presenting issues may range from anxiety and depression to substance abuse and eating disorders where I hold additional certifications and trainings. I also see adults with persisting eating issues.

I would like to tell potential clients that my style is interactive, that I am a good listener, and that most people improve if they are committed to changing. I am particularly good at treating grief and trauma. Patients have come in with multiple losses, have seen their loved ones hurt, injured or murdered, or have themselves been raped, or assaulted and have turned their lives around. Many clients cannot get over a loss of a husband, wife, or lover and have been able to move forward. I value a partnership. I value an open heart and emotional expression.

In the short term, I am directive and structured, and will work with you, your spouse or your child to put out any "fires" --acute stressors such as job loss, divorce, heartbreak or addiction issues need to be resolved before the deeper work of therapy can begin.
I tend to be quite direct in my approach and begin therapy with a combination of focused goal and solution oriented work. As the therapy proceeds, I then branch out into deeper issues concerning the unconscious, dream work, unresolved trauma and more. Additionally, I specialize and am not limited to, treating depression, anxiety and chemical dependency. Lastly, I also enjoy working with adolescents, couples and families. ** I host a podcast called "Look, Just Tell Me What To Do" which addresses issues related to mental health which is available here https://lookjusttellmewhattodo.podbean.com/ or on most podcast platforms.

Child Anxiety, Phobias, Obsessive Compulsive Disorder can show up in big ways and leave families spiraling.

With skill building through Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and Exposure Response Prevention (ERP), I help kids and parents develop a toolbox of evidenced based strategies to face their fears and courageously take back their lives from anxiety and OCD.
