"My practice focuses on youth and family issues, although I am also experienced in treating individuals. My clinical experience has been in school and office settings. I work with clients on issues such as adolescence, parenting, blended families, family conflict, relationship partner conflict, child defiance, anger management/temperamental behavior, anxiety, depression, grief, and trauma. Broadly speaking, I take a humanistic, client-centered approach to therapy but I am also influenced by the positive discipline model of child rearing."

"Therapy can lead to better relationships and more ease in our lives. I work with people to get in touch with the most authentic and real parts of themselves. Sometimes these parts get buried because of how we've felt hurt or misunderstood in life. Together we will get to know these hurt parts and how they show up, whether it is through fears and worries, the critical voice you hear inside, or a feeling of being stuck, lost, alone or helpless."

"Are you feeling overwhelmed and under-resourced? Are you struggling to balance your own needs with those of your baby? Does it seem like everyone knows something about motherhood that you don't? Becoming a mother is monumental, life-changing and sometimes disappointing. Nearly 1 in 5 mothers experience Anxiety and Depression after the birth/adoption of a baby. It is the most common complication post birth. You don't have to be alone with your experience. I will be with you and help you find your feet again."

Sometimes I've been able to bring more awareness to what is here and now, slowing down and making more contact with what is true for me. With awareness, new choices have emerged, as has a greater ability to be with what is painful and unresolved."

"Often clients come into therapy with me when they are stuck in life, in a crisis, or in transition in a relationship or job or when emotions are just becoming too much to cope with. They want a change but are not always sure how to go about it. Taking the step to begin therapy is not easy for most people, but starting therapy often leads to a real opportunity to change, in ways that are not always expected. My style is warm, inviting and engaging, and I seek to connect to each person where they are at in life."

"The three core things I believe about psychotherapy: 1. People are inherently healthy. 2. Therapy is not just about symptoms. 3. There is nothing mysterious about whether therapy is working. Traditionally, psychotherapy has been associated with illness while emotional health has been left to the self-help movement. The theory I practice sees everyone as essentially healthy. As a result, there is no ceiling on "getting better." People with symptoms want to feel more like him or herself which I aim to accomplish as quickly as possible. Someone coping pretty well, however, might seek help to become more effective."
