My primary orientations are Family Systems Therapy as well as Cognitive Behavioral, and Dialectical Behavioral therapies.
Therapy is about feeling better. It's a learning process. It requires a comfortable atmosphere, conducive to talking and expressing inner feelings. I try to create this environment by offering respect, sensitivity and compassion. I bring enthusiasm, and hope to the therapeutic process, as well as insight and creativity. This, in turn, helps one to develop an understanding of one's self and one's circumstances, and thus, the process of change begins, where one can acquire an ability to tackle whatever the challenge may be.

Feeling cutoff from friends and family can be painful, deciding what to do next is challenging.
A young child once described yogurt to me as “quiet ice cream”, what a wonderful imagination. In my experience, when children and adults feel stressed, isolated, unhappy, or overwhelmed, their ability to imagine difference, changing their behavior, or be able to consider another persons point of view, is diminished significantly.

For many children and teenagers, it’s difficult to talk about feelings and disappointments.  In psychotherapy, they learn to identify and express their emotions verbally or through the way they play, to gain insight into how their behaviors are affected by their feelings.  The increased awareness of their emotions in response to life events will help to build confidence that they can cope with whatever life brings their way.  ​ Psychotherapy can help patients cope with Depression, Anxiety, Panic Attacks, School Refusal, Anger, Resentment, Phobias, Social Isolation, Bullying, and Family Conflict.

My approach is an eclectic mix of CBT, Family Systems and Strengths Based Treatment tailored to each Individual.
Sometimes we come to a point in life when our challenges become so overwhelming that change is the only solution. Knowing where or how to start can be a challenge in itself. In a respectful and caring way, I will work with you to look at the areas of discomfort in processing feelings, communicating with those around you and in important relationships. The key to positive change and a more peaceful life can be having someone to listen and to guide you to recognizing the solutions already inside of you. Together we will explore and build skills to make coping with life challenges more manageable.
