My primary experience is working with children and adolescents and their families in coping with life's stressors, more significant mental health symptoms, and developing more effective coping styles and communication patterns. In treatment it is my goal to work alongside your child and you to find resources and coping skills to handle over-whelming experiences which are impacting you and your child's functioning. My dog Sammy, a therapy dog, is present during most sessions and can help support children suffering from anxiety around coming to therapy and providing a safe place to process difficult emotions.

I imagine that on most days we all work hard to do the best for our children. No matter how hard some of their challenging behaviors may be; you have love, patience, understanding, and most of all you continue to try to be creative and consistent. But in the end, something just is not working. You continue to ask your friends and family for support and advice, yet you are growing more stressed and tired by the minute. I can help your adolescent come to understand, and work through their struggles and challenges.Adolescence can be a time in life that can be complicated, demanding, and sometimes confusing for both you and your teen.

TEENS - your happy outgoing child has been replaced by a secretive/withdrawn, irritable/defiant teenager, creating worry, anxiety, chaos. You find yourself reacting to your teen, rather than enjoying a happy family. You've tried everything - bribery, setting boundaries, making demands, hurling threats. It's only gotten worse. Worried over the cause of your teen's change - addiction, (alcohol or drug abuse) body image/self esteem issues (anorexia, bulimia, cutting, weight) bullying, anxiety, depression, school, suicide attempts, suicide of a friend or family member...

Is your pre-teen or teen-age child unusually irritable, withdrawn, sad, angry or tearful? Teens will often open up to therapists when they don't talk to parents. If your teen is refusing school, or not enjoying life, s/he may be struggling with anxiety or depression, inadequate social skills, bullies, feeling different, sexual identity, parental divorce, or body image worries. I offer a warm, nurturing and safe environment for adolescents to share their feelings and start to feel better about themselves. I enjoy helping adolescents and parents find their way during these difficult times.

Creativity can be foundational to positive and longstanding change. We come into the world with an innate skill to solve the many problems that arise during development. Sometimes these solutions bring up new challenges or get in the way of our relationships and our ability to enjoy life. I work with children, adults, elders, and couples who are struggling to adapt to a stressful world. By developing a trusting relationship where exploration is welcomed and analyzed, we are able to find new ways of functioning, new solutions to our interpersonal conflicts, and improve our ability to flexibly adapt to our changing world.

Healing is a journey where acknowledgment of what caused your hurt is the first step then the often forgotten step is learning to thrive in that place where pain once lived. I am here to help you in your healing voyage. Don't let unspoken fears hold you back from getting help.
