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 I see. It is an interest in - as opposed to a fear of - ourselves that leads to greater aliveness and ownershep over one's thoughts, feelings, actions and reactions.

Initially, therapy can help us learn skills to cope with our anxious or painful feelings. It can help us manage stressful situations and feel more stable. Then therapy provides a safe place where together we can dig deeper to discover the causes of our feelings. Through the therapeutic relationship we become aware. The awareness glares so bright that change is inevitable.

In my work with adults, children and teenagers, I focus on their strengths and encourage them to think beyond difficulties and identify achievable goals. I coach parents skills to better communicate with their children and become "safely unpredictable," particularly as many children (if not all) become experts in how to push their parents buttons! I have been told by many of my clients over the past 18 years that my warm and directive, confident approach has been most helpful. Many children and teenagers referred to my practice have been in therapy before, with limited success.

My approach to therapy is open, supportive, and fosters curiosity instead of judgment. I work to help clients achieve insight about the origins of symptoms, while at the same time providing ways to cope with distressing emotions in the present. Our lives can be full of challenges that leave us feeling sad, overwhelmed, alone, and afraid. Sometimes we are unable to understand why we harbor such feelings. Therapy allows us to sort through our emotions, unhelpful behaviors, and negative self-beliefs so that we can continue on with more clarity, self-assurance, purpose, and happiness.

People in distress are often wary of talking to someone who is a stranger. The first visit is generally fraught with anxiety. I am adept at teasing out the issues and helping a person (of any age) feel comfortable and understood. I expect that many clients will come to my office with a certain amount of ambivalence about engaging in psychotherapy. Generally, by the time they leave after the first visit, they are eager to return having felt a sense of relief and hope that they are going to be understood and "heard" in a unique way.
