About

Life just not working for you these days? Feeling overwhelmed, persistently sad, or struggling in a relationship? It is my goal to provide clients with tools to improve their lives and to effectively deal with the transitions and stresses of life. I assist individuals, couples, and families in resolving issues which are personal or are causing tension in their relationships, while developing skills for successful, more positive interactions with others. I also help with parenting/coparenting issues. If you are ready for a change, it would be my pleasure to work with you to accomplish such goals.
My work with children is also very helpful for them and their parents. Play therapy has been shown to be one of the more effective methods for counseling children. Young people are often unable to identify, or they are hesitant to talk about, the issues causing them distress. As a highly trained and experienced Registered Play Therapist, I can help.
As a mediator, parenting coordinator, and coparenting coach I am uniquely trained, qualified, and skilled to effectively assist adults who are having difficulty agreeing on how to proceed in divorce, child custody and visitation, coparenting, or eldercare issues (e.g., long-term care for a loved one). I invite you to contact me for additional information.
