I specialize in preteens/teens, self-esteem, identity issues, self-harm, social anxiety, confidence building, rebuilding/healing relationships,  divorce, survivors of abuse, codependency, gifted/highly intelligent children, substance abuse, depression, and couples counseling.
I believe counseling is a partnership in which we work together in developing and implementing a plan to reach the clients treatment goals. Each client is unique and different, and I adjust according to the clients needs. I work well with clients who are ready to do the work to heal and grow. The client and I are active throughout the counseling process. I have found that this process is a journey towards healing and thriving in all areas of life. Many of my clients have found themselves stuck in life. I help clients find what is keeping them stuck and develop the skills to overcome these barriers so they might heal and grow.

The most important aspect of therapy is the Client-Therapist relationship.

I find EMDR to be very useful! Other populations I enjoy assisting are couples and children (utilizing play therapy techniques).
Need to talk to someone but don't know where to start? Start here! Marriage, parenting, life transitions, anxiety, and eating disorders are just a few topics discussed in my office. Sometimes the focus of therapy is to resolve current problems and other times the focus is long standing non productive patterns. When we stop taking care of ourselves and live according to other people's expectations, we lose our true self. By working with you in a positive and accepting environment, My practical, interactive style can help you discover the root(s) of your discontent and/or overwhelm and help you find healing and resolution.

I was once asked to explain what it is that I do: I said, "I help people work and play better together." I have found, in my 30+ years of experience, that a person's mental well-being has so much to do with their relationships--with their spouse or partner, their children, their loved ones, coworkers, and friends--the better those relationships are, the better they tend to feel; the more troublesome those relationships are, the more lousy they tend to feel. I also believe that therapy is about getting to the truth, and supporting a person as they find and fulfill their own truth, ultimately becoming who they are intended to be.

Change is about hope, about effort, about personal growth. My goal as I work with clients is to help facilitate that effort as they strive for the growth they desire. I believe change occurs by awareness and establishing one's authentic vision of who they wish to be--as an individual, a parent, a partner, a friend. I work collaboratively with clients to help them bring about positive changes in their lives that make sense to them, according to their personal values.
