My intention in working with you is to help you change unwanted behavior patterns. These patterns are frequently based on negative conclusions we may have drawn about ourselves in the past. I typically use a blend of traditional talk therapy combined with experiential approaches such as Brainspotting,, hypnotherapy, breathwork, psychodrama, and meditation. In this way we are able to re-introduce you to your strengths as well as take the healing to a deeper level. I consider it a privilege to do this work and I honor you for undertaking the challenge of personal growth.

Do you struggle with change like so many of us do? Do you look for ways to deal with it that may not be healthy for you? Do you wish things would resolve on their own or just go away? Change and conflict are inevitable. Some changes occur smoothly, some are stormy and others are very turbulent with high conflict and pain. We can all use some unbiased support during the stormy and turbulent times and yes, even during the smooth changes. We will explore together your aspirations and what may be impeding you in fully experiencing and living your own life. What really matters most to you and are you ready to explore it with me?

I have helped parents better understand their children and develop new parenting skills, worked with families and patients who are living with brain injury to help them cope with grief and to accept their “new normal,” and helped LGBT people, of all ages, to support and affirm their journey.
I see psychotherapy as a partnership and a process, where the client is the expert about their own life and the therapist is a guide. My emphasis is on helping clients change unhelpful behavior and thinking patterns that prevent them from building and maintaining positive and lasting relationships. The core of good therapy is based on building a relationship of trust, empathy and respect for the client. I provide an environment of safety and trust where we can explore issues, fears, concerns, and hopes. My goal is to transfer knowledge, skills and confidence so, eventually, you won’t need me!

Some of the major issues addressed include communication skills, trust, infidelity, parenting , finances, sex, abuse, and differing belief systems.
If you are experiencing depression, anxiety, feelings of worthlessness, difficulty controlling your anger, unable to concentrate, and/or having relationship issues, let's determine if we would be a good "fit" to work towards your healing. I believe that counseling should be a safe and nurturing space that is built upon trust, empathy, and non-judgment. I treat each person as a unique individual, who is worthy of unconditional acceptance, regardless of their personal circumstances, beliefs and struggles.

I believe the process of combined parenting and teaching has furthered my understanding of family dynamics.
Art Therapy: where Psychotherapy and Creativity Converge Words are our primary method of communication, but often words can not express the complexity of our internal and emotional lives. The process of art-making provides us with a means to our subconscious that is unrefined and uncensored. As an Art Therapist, I use art-making as well as verbal therapy to help my clients overcome obstacles in their lives. My clients are not artists, but they do paint, draw and sculpt as expression. It is about the process, not the final product. Plus, being creative is therapeutic, in and of itself.

Parenting Therapists

What does therapy for parenting look like?

Therapists may work with parents individually, together, or include the whole family to find solutions for the problems a parent faces. Many parent-based therapies work on a parent’s relationship with their children, problem-solving within the family, and analysis of family dynamics. Therapy conducted remotely by video may be helpful in allowing a therapist to observe how families interact in their own homes.

When should a parent seek therapy?

When behavioral problems begin to disrupt the healthy functioning of a family, it may be a good time to look into therapy. If parents find that children are acting out in school, have started using drugs or alcohol, have developed eating disorders, or other similar red flags, a therapist may be able to help.

How long does therapy take for parenting problems?

Depending on the severity of a family’s challenges and the type of treatment utilized, therapy for parenting can last from weeks to months. Cognitive behavioral therapy is a pragmatic therapy type that can be brief, most often ranging from between 5 and 20 sessions. Structural family therapy, which inspects family dynamics, often takes several months. Parent-child interaction therapy is typically shorter-term, lasting between 10 and 20 sessions. For any therapy, the duration will depend on the progress made and results realized.

Can therapy help parents dealing with burnout or stress?

Parenting is difficult. Parents may dismiss or conceal feelings of exhaustion, overwhelm, or escape ideation—imagining withdrawing from their parental obligations altogether. but left unattended, these feelings can have negative effects on the whole family. A therapist can help parents work on the skills they might need to better cope with the burdens of parenting and help them be the best parents they can be.
