I love working with kids and their parents! Loud kids, active kids, mad kids, disruptive kids, depressed or anxious kids, unhappy teenagers with failing grades, school discipline issues or drug/alcohol problems. Whatever the problem, there is usually a fair amount of pain associated with it for everyone in the family. I provide a safe, nurturing environment for kids and their parents to get help.

I work with those who are experiencing distress and/or emotional challenges in their lives, either due to a specific life change, incident or ongoing life issues. Today, you have chosen to be here and taken the first step to explore therapy. For some of you, this may feel a bit scary because you are not sure what this is about and how it works. Life is rarely without challenges. There are times when we need to seek out the right therapist who is dedicated to assist us in challenging moments. You are the reason why I am here. Your story matters, and I am here to listen to your story.

I have a wide-ranging experience working with young children to adults. My therapy patients tend to be young adults and middle aged individuals. Affording insight in the lifespan is my goal, and I focus on reaching that goal in a number of different ways. Ultimately, I leave it to my clients to tell me where they want to go and we find a path to get there. Through better insight and goal-oriented purpose, we identify the outcomes to strive for.

People sometimes struggle with the idea of going to see a counselor. Often it's difficult to know where to begin. Sometimes finding the right counselor can mean finding new hope, new choices--a new life. My task is to create a protected space so that you'll feel comfortable and safe. I listen carefully, objectively, with kindness and humor and without judgment. I respond with training, intuition, insight, honesty, and engage a variety of techniques to meet your presenting issue. I consider it a privilege that clients are willing to share their lives with me and I honor that trust.

My clients are children and families who are stressed due to multiple changes at home or school. They are usually able to meet most difficulties without too much struggle but now need to get a fresh perspective with some outside help. I offer sandplay therapy, a creative, nonverbal play therapy which facilitates the centering and healing process of persons regardless of age-- but is particularly appealing to children ages 5-13. My clients are changing careers, going back to school, or wanting to try something new. My clients are facing life threatening illness and want to clarify their choices.

I have over 30 years of experience in working with children and adults in inpatient and outpatient treatment. I've had postgraduate training in play therapy, sandplay, infant-parent intervention, family/couples therapy, and child/adult psychoanalysis. Research has demonstrated that early experiences with significant others affect brain structure; foster individuation, self-esteem, and emotional regulation; and serve as templates for subsequent interpersonal relationships.
