Would you like things to work better in your life, to feel happier and more in control? Some difficulties stem from situational and environmental factors, others are rooted in developmental issues, personality traits, mood disorders or psychosis. Life can be challenging for children and adults of all ages. Learn to identify your personal life values, thoughts and feelings. Focus on current functioning and develop improved mind-body relaxation, error-free thinking and emotion management, reflection and communication. Explore early attachments and present family and relationship dynamics. Address developmental and learning related concerns. I support medication when appropriate and welcomed by you.
Mindfulness, observation without judgment and acceptance are key to managing all life has brought before you. Integrating a range of therapeutic interventions including motivational interviewing, psychodynamic and behavioral therapies supports you in all phases of your personal journey. Your unique constellation of biology, development, cognition, neurology and experience inform your therapy and healing.
I am currently directly involved with early intervention program for people managing early episode psychosis and mood disorder. My initial professional training is grounded in early childhood development and families and, of course, this is where we all begin. I bring both areas of expertise to all my therapeutic work.
