I SPECIALIZE IN TEENS&ADULTS - Is your child's behavior causing you to stress out? I have extensive experience treating teens and understand the issues that cause them to bottle up, shut down and become defiant. I WELCOME ADULT PATIENTS-Unhappy? Need to talk? Whether your having marital difficulties, issues with your job or family or issues that you can't seem to solve on your own, there is help available for you. As an experienced therapist/educator I have helped my clients develop a more focused understanding of why they are feeling their feelings and how to heal.
