As a parent you want the best for your child, which also means choosing the right therapist for them. As a passionate child therapist, I enjoy working with children using play based interventions. I specialize in: childhood trauma, adoption, anxiety, and other life transitions. When we partner together and determine your child's needs, we will develop an individualized treatment plan for your child in order to work towards healing and growth. Whether you are looking for your child to build a toolbox of coping skills, build their attachment with you, or to work through a trauma, they will do so in a safe, healing environment.

We all have the capacity to heal. From difficult relationships, anxiety, depression, chronic stress and/or pain, parenting challenges, infertility, traumatic life experiences, or other sources of distress. You have the capacity to heal. To live your most extraordinary life each and every day. To live wholly. People usually enter therapy because something important isn't working in their lives. Though healing work sometimes feels lonely, particularly when you first begin, you do not have to begin this journey alone. With the right guidance, the work can quickly become empowering, energizing, even enlightening, as you begin to have access to your whole self once again.

It's my belief to "Keep life simple." Life is stressful enough. Balancing work, family, social life, friends, and relationships can be overwhelming at times. I practice from a harm reduction holistic theoretical orientation. It combines person-centered (respect for autonomy) with CBT/systemic therapy (a critical look at culture and attachments). By identifying wants and needs, I can assist clients with locating triggers and establishing healthy coping skills to alleviate any mental, emotional, or physical stress. I work particularly with parents and clients dealing with ADHD,career choices, pregnancy, self-esteem and accountability.

Therapy is a place for expression of thoughts, but not only that. It can be a place for exploration, connection, authenticity, processing of difficult moments and challenging situations. I aim to work with clients towards building and supporting a space to elaborate for change, improve communication, empower, rethink and find new meanings. My framework is relational, collaborative, reflective and sincere. It is centered on people's experiences, internal resources and objectives, with attention to social and cultural contexts, and the many factors that influence our lives, self-view and decisions.

The ideal client, my colleagues tell me, is someone who respects the boundaries of the relationship, knows when and how to use their therapist (we tell you) and tries to do "homework," the assignments talked about in therapy that are likely to help. Often there isn't any! But people come to therapy because they need it, not because they want to hang out, and they want something to change, not only in others, but in themselves. Therapy is, or should be, a safe place. Most seasoned therapists are still in it because they find it effective and personally gratifying. I guess I'm one.

The word psychotherapy comes from the ancient Greek word “psyche” and “therapeia”. Psyche means soul, and therapeia means healing. I look at psychotherapy as a process of soul healing. One may be facing a break down in relationships, a faith crisis, a sense of disorientation with nowhere to go, a life without meaning. It could be a loss of self worth. Or there may be old wounds, or wounds that continue to bleed that require healing. We can either run away, or stay helpless in such situations. Or we can start to listen to the deeper calling of soul and work towards healing, and towards Wholeness.

Everyone believes you have it all together. The truth is it’s getting harder to manage the stress from work, family, and relationships. Despite your achievements and strengths, you can’t tune out the voice that says you're doing it all wrong and you’re not good enough. You've always struggled with setting boundaries and when you find the words to express what you need, you’re overcome with guilt and anxiety. You put yourself last and are often your worst critic. You're exhausted by this pattern and are ready to make changes. You want to feel more confident and develop a more compassionate relationship with yourself.
