About

My work is relationally based. I believe that development throughout our lives is formed through our relationships. The therapeutic relationship we share will be an important factor in understanding, improving, establishing, and responding to those relationships. Even when things are particularly tough or uncomfortable, creating and tolerating change can be daunting. It’s easy for individuals and families to get stuck in old patterns that no longer meet their needs. We’ll look at those patterns: how they developed, how they affect you, and how to take steps toward freeing you and your family.
We often believe we are powerless to change our lives. In individual psychotherapy, I’ll help you challenge that belief. Instead of reacting to life challenges without thinking, we’ll work toward making decision-making conscious – identify choices, accept feelings, take responsibility, and learn what is out of our control.
I work with children (birth-18), adolescents, and families. Endorsed as an Infant Mental Health Specialist (0-5yrs) Mentor, I offer child-parent, play, and family therapies. I have helped families address ADHD, behavioral problems, trauma, attachment disorders, and depression and anxiety. I also focus on parenting and adoption.
