Are you, a loved one or friend experiencing changes in mood, behavior, sadness, irritability, unusual thoughts, perceptions marked by periods of high/low energy, anxiety, or trouble concentrating? Are these difficulties affecting family relationships or causing disruption in functioning at home, school, work or other settings? If so, help is available. I work families couples, children, and individuals in a safe, supportive environment using tailored relational interventions. Whether negative symptoms resulting from childhood trauma or issues such as addiction impacting your family’s stability and connection, help is available.

For couples in crisis, engaging assessments and interventions are used to help you and your partner uncover your strengths and growth areas while providing strategies to enhance communication and restore intimacy. In couples therapy we will work on ways to deepen your connection, mutual respect and understanding through informative, fun exercises.

Help is available for children struggling with social cues, inattentiveness or emotional issues. Child play therapy is used to give children a voice to express their feelings in a fun, safe manner, while learning and developing healthy coping skills. Help is also available for individuals and families struggling with unwanted behaviors and substance abuse.
