Announcement icon I offer Telehealth (or online counseling) for your convenience. Please call today to get the support you need during this challenging time.
Are you, a loved one or friend experiencing changes in mood, behavior, thoughts or perceptions marked by periods of high/low energy, irritability, anxiety, or difficulty concentrating? Are these difficulties affecting family relationships or causing disruption in functioning at home, school, work or other settings? If so, help is available. My work with families, couples, children, and individuals is conducted in a safe, supportive environment. Whether negative symptoms resulting from childhood trauma or issues such as pornography or substance misuse 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.
Personalized treatment plans are used to support and enhance emotional well-being for adults and children. 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 available for children struggling with social cues, inattentiveness or emotional issues.
