You have come here because you want something to change. Therapy can bridge the gap between where you are and where you want to be. I think a lot about the brain and how we unconsciously replicate patterns. The work I do uses current neuropsychology to help integrate outdated patterns into newer more helpful ones.

Therapy is difficult and making the first step to find the right professional to help you better understand yourself and your world can be a daunting task! I firmly view therapy as a partnership between myself and the client with the fit or relationship between us being incredibly important. We will work together to identify and manage problematic behaviors, patterns, and relationships. Your openness and commitment to the therapeutic process are critical, as you will get out of it what you put in. Meanwhile, I will be here to support and gently push you along the way.

With both children and teenagers, I always include parallel work with parents to support and improve communication and understanding. My approach is grounded in a development perspective that appreciates the essential connection between body and mind and recognizes how past experiences and relationships, as well as things outside of our conscious awareness, influence our present-day feelings and behavior. I have successfully worked with persons of all ages who wish to avoid or discontinue the use of psychotropic medications.
