As a clinical psychologist, I have over 30 yrs experience helping clients work through life's difficult challenges. I work with parents and children to address developmental and behavioral difficulties and to find solutions to the unique challenges of adolescence. I often work with young adults to help them manage transitions into independence and adult responsibilities. With adults, I facilitate their work toward relief from symptoms generated by psychological conditions or from traumatic events in their past.

The Child & Family Counseling Group is a small clinic where we specialize in working with children and parents around behavioral, social, developmental, and emotional issues. Many of the children we see for therapy have experienced some kind of significant trauma (divorce, loss, etc.) Others just have unique temperaments or "wiring" that tend to get them into trouble at home or at school. We see kids from 0 to 20...and adults, too.

Therapy is a place where you can understand yourself at a deeper level. You will be able to realize how things work in your life and ways of changing things up to make you feel better. I will listen closely to your story and together we will come to an understanding of how you are making things work and if something is not working we will come up with other, more helpful ways to cope with situations.

Have you ever heard "neurons that fire together, wire together"? It's a fancy way of saying, when we experience something more than once, it begins "wiring" our brains to respond to those situations. Working with children under 12 is particularly important to me because I know how much brains grow during these years. Adults need support too, and I'm dedicated to working with my favorite "multi-taskers" - parents, students, and those in helping professions. I work with all of my clients, of any age, using a trauma informed approach that respects the "templates" their brains have built while collaborating so we can "rewire", together.

In a way, life is a puzzle. With many pieces to choose from, we try to find those pieces that fit smoothly together. However, life becomes troubling when what we have chosen doesn't fit and the same problems seem to occur in one situation after another, making life seem even more frustrating and confusing. I am trained as both an artist and a psychotherapist and work in a collaborative style.
