I believe that the power of therapy comes through the understanding of how self defeating patterns of behavior interfere with our ability to have a happy and productive life. I believe that focusing and building on our strengths will enhance our functioning. Examining our behavior is critical to developing healthy options for ourselves and in our relationships. Through an open and respectful process we will examine the areas in your life that have interfered with your ability to make positive, forward thinking choices. As you develop different coping strategies the hope of change will support healing and growth.

I see the children, adolescents and adults I work with gaining self awareness and understanding through the treatment process Through openness, honesty and self respect all people have the ability to improve their circumstances and happiness. I believe that every one has the capacity to change and enhance their strengths.

Adolescents is a complex and sometimes difficult time of life. I have a special interest in working with child and adolescent adoptees and their families to support their connection and bonding. I can support the adoptees integration into their family while examining and understanding their past circumstances.
