My specialty is working with children and young adults with personal and issues relating to education -- from elementary school, college and graduate school. I am able to quickly lessen anxiety, ease depression and improve relationships with others. I work with with parents and children to resolve problematic behaviors like excessive worrying, sleep issues, low motivation, depression and interpersonal conflict. I value making a positive connection with clients right away, and am a warm, empathic and skilled professional with over 20 years of experience successfully working with children and adolescents and adults.

I have a speciality working with children, teenagers, college and graduate school students. I work on social skill development, increasing motivation, lessening fears, easing divorce-related concerns, and improving school performance. For adults I help with decision making, improving energy levels, and helping set and achieve personal goals.

Often the first phone call or visit is the hardest, and in my experience, once people have made the decision to begin counseling, they find a tangible improvement in their lives almost immediately. I currently have a few openings and look forward to hearing from you.
