"I would describe my approach to therapy as 'person and relationship centered', collaborative in nature and striving to deeply attune to my client (s)' strengths and inner wisdom, to utilize as fuel for our process. My process tends to be depth oriented and draws from attachment based theories. From session to session, we will attend to your early and current life challenges, and your responses, with compassion and curiosity. In the same way, we will learn to listen to your un-lived parts of your self, so they can contribute to your longer lasting healing."

"Raising healthy and happy children with ADHD can be a big job, but the good news is that you do not have to do it alone. There is a lot that can be done to help! ADHD is a complex neurodevelopmental condition that impacts each child differently. ADHD has little to do with how "smart" your child might be, but it has a lot to do with your child's ability to regulate their attention, mood, and behaviors. When symptoms of ADHD lead to lower self-esteem, mental health concerns, behavioral challenges, or academic struggles, it is a good time to seek professional help. "

As emotional awareness increases we can choose different responses. Rather than the instantaneous reactions that plague many of us, we will be able to respond intentionally and thoughtfully.
