In addition to working with young children, adolescents, young adults, and adults, I work with families in many ways: mothers with infants and toddlers, family therapy, and couples therapy.
People seek therapy when they are unhappy with how they are feeling or functioning. Sometimes you can identify the experiences connected to your suffering. Other times, the reasons for suffering are more elusive, but the associated symptoms (depression, anxiety, unfulfilling relationships, for example) are nevertheless extremely distressing. In both cases, talking to understand the deeper reasons for suffering can help. The self-awareness you discover this way is the most powerful tool to create a more fulfilling life. It can take time to build the trust required to talk and think in a freer way.

My training and early career experience emphasized child psychotherapy, and I still really enjoy working with children of all ages and their parents.
In my practice I have always started from the premise that a good working relationship is paramount. Whether I'm seeing a child, an adult or a couple, I am continually impressed by how hard people will work in therapy if they feel safe and understood. Although I rely on a variety of techniques (exploration of patterns and their sources from the past, cognitive-behavioral strategies, play therapy with children), my relationship with my patients is the most important part of the work.

With children and adolescents: I utilize play and talk therapy to help them learn about themselves and to identify warning signs of their problematic concerns.
As a psychotherapist with expertise working with and understanding children and adolescents as well as adults, I understand that psychotherapy can be useful for people of all ages. My approach to therapy involves giving people the room to express themselves at the most authentic level possible. By respecting that every person is entirely unique, I approach therapy with an attitude of curiosity that I seek to evoke in those with whom I am working. It is an interest in - as opposed to a fear of - ourselves that leads to greater aliveness and ownership over one's thoughts, feelings, actions and reactions.
