I have over two decades of experience supporting young children and their parents by identifying and treating problems according to their developmental context.
The challenges of early childhood are sometimes overlooked. Common, age appropriate behaviors could be quite difficult to deal with. Moreover, when a child presents highly disruptive and even destructive behaviors, parents may experience helplessness, anxiety and even shame. Loving and caring parents may try to do all the right things and a child might still show signs of struggle. Managing difficult behaviors could become like a second job and increase levels of distress in the family. I utilize Parent-Child Interaction Therapy (PCIT) to help children and parents to enjoy their time together.

If you or your child have experienced a traumatic event and are tired of feeling alone and misunderstood, please reach out to me to schedule an appointment.
Have you ever experienced a scary situation that turned your world upside down? Do you ever feel as if you’re reliving the event all of the sudden? Or perhaps you find yourself feeling intense fear, anxiety, shame, sadness, or disconnected from yourself, or maybe you are just numb to all feelings. Trauma can come in many different forms. It can result from experiencing abuse as a child, racism or homophobia, witnessing violence at home or in your community, or other situations where you felt powerless and afraid. Many people who have experienced trauma are left to deal with the difficult emotions that seem to come out of nowhere.

With extensive post-graduate training and 30 years experience, I have worked with individuals (adults, adolescents and children) and couples.
I treat individuals and couples who present with a range of needs, from debilitating eating disorders to mild anxiety and to issues that cannot be described in five words or less. I see the whole person rather than a group of symptoms with the recognition that people are complex and that most of us have difficulties in one or more areas of our lives. I work to help people become more integrated which, I believe, helps them lead more fulfilling lives. Life isn't so easy sometimes, but through insight change is possible.
