I am currently not taking new clients. Are you feeling emotions that are difficult to handle; issues surfacing that you're ready to take a look at? Feeling stressed, anxious or depressed? Possibly your relationships are strained or unsatisfying. Maybe you're struggling with parenting a teenager, or you are a teenager wanting someone to listen? These are all areas of interest to me. I have worked with individuals, couples for over 22 years and am still amazed that while therapy is often not easy, it is truly worth the effort for most people. I have a calm, supportive, interactive style and welcome working with you.

It is heartbreaking to see your child struggle and not know how to help them. Most parents who call me have tried every tool they have to help their children with little or no result. you might feel alone in your experience, feel guilt and shame for not being able to help your child or even for losing your own temper if you have an intense high need child. Perhaps your child is struggling in school, and you are dreading the next phone call to address the latest issues, or feel exhausted trying to go through the daily function without meltdowns, or worrying about your teen’s emotional state, lack of communication,or defiant behavior

I believe that we all consist of “parts” - facets of ourselves that formed in response to life experiences, beliefs, and felt emotions. Here is the twist: the parts we resist and outlaw in ourselves seep through the cracks of our fragmented soul and manifest as undesirable behavior with unwanted outcomes. For this reason, we stay stuck and parts of us remain unfulfilled and unattended. These are your warrior parts that helped you survive throughout your life. They don’t want to be rejected or blamed. They don't need fixing. They want to be understood, accepted, and to ultimately belong.
