I work intensively with children, adolescents and adults, using therapeutic strategies that are appropriate for the age and the emotional issues of the individual in treatment.
Choosing to seek help is not always an easy decision. I create a warm and supportive environment in which change and working through emotional challenges becomes possible. I have been a clinical psychologist for more than 20 years. I specialize in treating individuals aged 10 through adulthood. When working with children, I also work closely with parents to help them understand the nature of their child's difficulties and develop strategies to support his or her normal development and healthy emotional functioning.

As a social worker with more than 20 years of experience working with older children, adolescents, adults and families I provide a safe, warm and non-judgmental environment in which to build a strong therapeutic relationship.
Sometimes we come to a point in life when our challenges become so overwhelming that change is the only solution. Knowing where or how to start can be a challenge in itself. In a respectful and caring way, I will work with you to look at the areas of discomfort in processing feelings, communicating with those around you and in important relationships. The key to positive change and a more peaceful life can be having someone to listen and to guide you to recognizing the solutions already inside of you. Together we will explore and build skills to make coping with life challenges more manageable.

Sometimes life seems difficult or impossible to cope with. Maybe there are goals you haven't achieved or behaviors you have wanted to change, but haven't been able to for some reason. If you are experiencing depression, anxiety, relationship challenges, parenting stress, or are coping with past or current trauma, psychotherapy can help. It can be that crucial first step in making positive changes and achieving your goals.

I have been in practice for over 30 years, working with couples, individuals, children and families. I use many therapeutic tools depending on my clients' individual needs. These include: helping clients look at the negative things they tell themselves; discover how their problem(s) arose, which often ends a cycle of shame and self-blame; learn the interpersonal skills they lack and then devise homework assignments to practice new skills. I often use hypnosis to address issues on a deeper level than our conscious will. Finally I help my couples and families to understand and change destructive patterns of interaction.

Have you ever said: "No one ever taught me how to be a parent or spouse?" Perhaps navigating the relationships at work is posing a challenge. I help clients look at patterns of communication and behaviors that aren't working and help them understand their origins. Together, we develop an understanding of what is causing the difficulties so that we may address them successfully.

Often, the individuals I see have difficulty with attention, concentration, organization, and with meeting the daily demands required of them at school. I also offer much support to parents who may be frustrated with their attempts at connecting with their kids and who are in need of guidance relating to discipline techniques and behavior management.
