People come to see me when they feel stuck and have had enough. I help parents help their children; help couples and families get closer and happier; and in general help people successfully resolve issues such as: stress, anxiety, adjustment to new life circumstances (relocation, family changes), relationship issues (divorce, extra-marital affairs, conflict), and dealing with difficult family members. I work with individuals and families dealing with medical conditions that can be affected by stress (Gastrointestinal issues, pain, sleep disturbances). I also work with people interested in specific skill building such as: stress/anxiety management, assertiveness and dealing with conflict, communication, and more.

I focus on people's strengths through a resilience focused model (as opposed to a weakness or "pathology" focus). This is a focused short term therapy model with a practical focus on helping people find effective and lasting strategies to deal with their challenges. When appropriate, therapy might be longer term.

My work is both holistic and systemic: the whole person and their environment. I also have experience in making sense of diagnostic testing in complex cases, and helping families coordinate care between professionals, agencies, etc. I have consulted to families needing to access special education resources about program suitability and fit.
