I work with adults, teenagers and couples to help them find ways to feel better in their lives, in their relationships and in their own skin. General issues include self-esteem, sadness, stress, and dealing with new or difficult situations. We often talk about the challenges and choices involved in relationships - romantic, social, family and professional. I also work with many people struggling with food and weight issues, such as body image, self-presentation, eating disorders and emotional eating. We strive for physical and emotional wellness with a balanced individualized approach.

I can help the child and family learn more about themselves, and give the language needed to effectively communicate.
In this difficult time we find ourselves in, our mental health becomes even more important to pay attention to. If you or your child are struggling, please know I can help. Both adults and children find themselves focusing on the “loudest” problem, while the real issue remains hidden. Kids and adults need to be given the right tools in order to navigate and be successful in their lives! I am a skilled at working with children to give them the skills necessary to be happy with their lives. I can also teach adults to tap back into the tools that work, as well as introduce new ones.

As a parent, you've been worried about what you see your teen going through. The excessive anxiety about school, relationships, and the struggle to adjust to any change in routine. Their stress level is high and they isolate from friends and family . You watch them play video games, scroll through social media and binge on Netfilx, but they never tell you what's going on. That's the scariest part. You want to help them, but you can't break through. And on top of that, the pandemic. You know it can't continue like this any longer.

*Not currently accepting new clients* Generalizations about therapy are difficult; experiences are as unique as the individuals involved and are unlike any that encountered in family , work, or personal life. Therapy requires involvement of and trust between clinician and client during and between sessions and asks questions or presents issues that may be difficult to discuss. Uncomfortable or unfamiliar emotions may arise, and exploration can lead to reduction in distressing feelings and greater understanding of one's experience, which many people experience as highly rewarding.

I've led wilderness and recovery programs, family and couples workshops, and served as graduate faculty.
I am open to working with everyone. Attitude and readiness help, but life isn't always playing along. So it's not a requirement. But generally I look for honesty to start. If you have the courage to share your truth, you can likely cultivate the insight, courage, and compassion needed to heal and grow. Whatever the issue, we can work together to discover what you need.
