As a play therapist, I offer children an opportunity to gain mastery of their dilemmas through the manipulation of art materials, toys and sand tray figurines.
I have practiced psychotherapy for thirty years. As clients share their life struggles, I offer support, respect, and practical information on coping strategies. Together, we explore such issues as patterns of attachment and relating, internal self talk, cognitive structures, unresolved traumas and one's personal life narrative. I individualize my approach and use a variety of modalities to help clients develop strengths and achieve their life goals. When working with couples, I facilitate development of healthy communication techniques, conflict resolution skills, and awareness of defenses. I promote attunement to emotional needs so couples can experience intimacy and growth.

I provide therapy to children, adolescents and adults, in an integrated and culturally sensitive fashion, utilizing a combination of strategies gathered from various psychological orientations, combined with teachings of Eastern schools of thought.
Buddha's quote "The mind is everything. What you think you become", has always been at the center of my beliefs, both personally and professionally. Therefore, I view therapy as a tool that enables us to transcend beyond our previously adopted and perhaps less effective ways of coping with life's challenges, and begin to relearn new ways of dealing with challenges as they arise. This will in turn open up many new windows to self-awareness, ultimately bringing about personal growth and satisfaction both internally and within the context of our relationships, allowing us to live happier more fulfilled lives.

Maybe your child is misbehaving at school, or your teenager is sullen and distanced, or you're in love and know you'd like to stay with this person, if you could only change a few things that really scare you. Or maybe there's an aggressive part of you that your parents didn't know how to handle, or a hurt and vulnerable side that you've always felt too ashamed to feel.

Are you concerned about your child's wellbeing? I specialize in working with children and I am passionate about my work with adolescents and young adults. Growing up is difficult enough; dealing with the intense pressure of school, family, friends and intimate relationships is often overwhelming. It is equally difficult establishing one's self and who you will be the remainder of your life. Homework, test anxiety, divorce, bullying and or peer pressure frequently overwhelm children and teens while major transitions --college, relationships and career-- leave us feeling inadequate.

If only you could just tell your kids what to do and watch them feel better! It seldom works out that way, though. To help a child, you have to "speak the language of youth" and find ways to help that aren't lectures or punishments. My office is half consulting room and half art studio. Your child is invited to express their emotions in whatever way suits them--colors, brushes, toys and, yes, a couch. I help kids and teens find their own answers and begin growing into the people they were meant to be.

You've taken the right step in exploring options for your child.
Do you often find yourself alone in your parenting struggles? Raising kids is a tough job, one for which you may think you are unprepared. You are challenged by playing the multiple, and sometimes conflicting, roles of referee, cheerleader, and coach. You constantly need to manage the wide range of your child's emotions and behaviors. From a simple refusal to listen, to full blown temper tantrums, it is a constant struggle figuring out how to respond to your child's varying behaviors effectively. Yes Parenting isn't easy, but there is hope. You don't have to walk this journey alone.
