"My practice focuses on youth and family issues, although I am also experienced in treating individuals. My clinical experience has been in school and office settings. I work with clients on issues such as adolescence, parenting, blended families, family conflict, relationship partner conflict, child defiance, anger management/temperamental behavior, anxiety, depression, grief, and trauma. Broadly speaking, I take a humanistic, client-centered approach to therapy but I am also influenced by the positive discipline model of child rearing."

"Therapy can lead to better relationships and more ease in our lives. I work with people to get in touch with the most authentic and real parts of themselves. Sometimes these parts get buried because of how we've felt hurt or misunderstood in life. Together we will get to know these hurt parts and how they show up, whether it is through fears and worries, the critical voice you hear inside, or a feeling of being stuck, lost, alone or helpless."

"Over the course of life, people develop coping skills to deal with all kinds of emotional challenges. However, sometimes, individuals encounter situations for which they have no preparation or find the usually adequate coping skills are overwhelmed by the enormity of particular problem/problems. There may be patterns or behaviors that one feels stuck in or fated to repeat over-and-over. (Do you feel "stuck" but you cannot figure out how to release yourself?) In those instances a solution focused, warm, steady, and skillful therapist can assist individuals to understand the root causes of those distressing patterns."

"I invite you to notice your breath and then notice what else is in your awareness. When I've been offered the time and space to simply be present, I have often felt differently. Sometimes I've been able to bring more awareness to what is here and now, slowing down and making more contact with what is true for me. With awareness, new choices have emerged, as has a greater ability to be with what is painful and unresolved."

"Are you struggling with relationships? Are you having the same fight with your partner over and over? Have you lost the emotional connection you used to have? Do you find yourself trapped in similar relationship dynamics in most of your relationships and feel helpless to change those negative patterns? Intimate relationships touch our deepest relational wounds. That's why we can be overwhelmed with the pain they bring and often, at points, feel like giving up. When attended to with gentleness and compassion these wounds can heal and we can experience a new level of connection and love - one which we couldn't have imagined. "

" Before therapy, clients often feel defeated, overwhelmed and at a loss for what to do next. Clients I have worked with said that the work we did together alleviated these stressful emotions and gave them an increased sense of empowerment in their ability to manage the outcomes of their lives. I always try and make sure my clients walk away from each session with a new perspective and a new way to respond to the situations that brought the into therapy. I have worked with diverse populations and believe therapy can be a healing space for those who have experienced oppression, discrimination, or judgment for who they are/or love. "

"The three core things I believe about psychotherapy: 1. People are inherently healthy. 2. Therapy is not just about symptoms. 3. There is nothing mysterious about whether therapy is working. Traditionally, psychotherapy has been associated with illness while emotional health has been left to the self-help movement. The theory I practice sees everyone as essentially healthy. As a result, there is no ceiling on "getting better." People with symptoms want to feel more like him or herself which I aim to accomplish as quickly as possible. Someone coping pretty well, however, might seek help to become more effective."
