I am a certified child and adolescent therapist.
When we feel understood by another person we feel better about ourselves. My practice is based in helping children adolescents and adults feel accepted and supported. Therapy offers the opportunity to explore and observe oneself in relation to the world and with others. Increased self awareness improves our ability to develop more effective coping skills for managing our responses to lifes challenges and stress. For children and young adults especially mastering a sense of self control can lead to increased confidence and a sense of well being.

I work with children, adolescents, young adults, adults, and families who struggle with issues of anxiety, depression, confidence, and interpersonal relationships. The number one aspect of successful treatment is a strong/trusting relationship. I connect with clients through sports metaphors, movies, real life scenarios, and getting to understand their interests. Everyone has a story so I believe it is important to include family during phases of treatment, to best understand the client's story. In addition, I believe the family is a necessary part of the therapy team, therefore family members are included in phases of treatment to ultimately help my client reach their goals.

We all experience emotional and physical difficulties from time to time. Often we are able to deal with these life experiences ourselves. Sometimes, however, it is not possible for us to resolve these challenges alone. In these situations professional help is appropriate. Until fifty years ago anyone experiencing psychological and/or physical stress was treated individually. Family therapy grew out of a simple but profound idea: People in crisis can often be best understood and treated within their own famiies. As a certified family therapist, as well as a certified psychoanalyst, I have the education necessary to see both famiies and individuals.
