I see psychotherapy as a way to more fully empower and express one’s self in the world, whether as a child, teen, or adult, and, in the process, heal the various “symptoms” that stand in the way. It’s my belief and experience that that sense of self is, by nature, strong, clear, and caring, and yet can become problematic, in feelings and behavior, through the difficult experiences that life can bring. I see my role as helping to bring forth the experience of this successful and caring self, and, specifically to assist the client to heal the problematic traumas, attitudes, beliefs, and behaviors, that interfere with this.

I work with children, teens, adults, and families, using an eclectic range of methods, including sandplay, EMDR, CBT, dynamic and problem-solving therapy, along with family therapy, depending on the needs of the person. I particularly specialize in work with young, middle, and older adolescents, and their families, and survivors of trauma.

Feel free to contact me to set up a 'meet and greet' conversation to see if I feel to you like the right person to serve and support your and/or your kids' needs. I'm happy to speak on the phone, as well, to answer any questions you may have. I look forward to it!
