Having worked with a diverse population in a variety of settings, I have found that the key to effective therapy is providing a non-judgemental environment, one where you feel heard and supported regardless of your past. Whether you are struggling with substance abuse, anxiety, depression, parenting , or a difficult life transition, I can help guide you with tools for change. I provide continual encouragement to help aid you overcome your life obstacles and find a new found compassion for yourself and your loved ones.

I specialize in working with trauma, anxiety/stress, depression, parenting issues, and sexual acting out behaviors.
It can be truly difficult to acknowledge you need help and seek that help out. Thank you for taking the first step in the path to healing! I provide therapy utilizing a relational, collaborative, person-centered approach. The fundamental basis of any relationship is centered on trust. I model this by strengthening rapport and creating a comfortable, non-judgmental space for you to explore thoughts, feelings and address your reasons for coming to therapy.

Do you find yourself in survival mode, just trying to get through the day? Do you wish for you or your family to enjoy life more? Are you feeling dissatisfied, disconnected, or left behind in our busy world? Perhaps you are a parent struggling to feel connected to your child and questioning your parenting or maybe your child or teen seems unhappy or is having problems in school or with peers. You might be a young adult feeling lost or unsure of the future. You may even be an adult who is supposed to have it all together by now, yet find yourself drowning under work or home demands or under the weight of anxiety or depression.

I have been trained in and utilize practice informed by Child- Parent Psychotherapy when working with parents and their children ages 0-5.
Therapy is a unique opportunity to focus on yourself and begin down the path to a healthy, more fulfilling life. Working collaboratively with a therapist can help you to explore patterns, relationships and ways of functioning that no longer serve your best interest. This exploration can lead to the strength and confidence necessary to make changes and regain focus in your life. Therapy is an emotionally safe place that will allow you to heal as you address difficult issues, gain clarity, and become reacquainted with your authentic self.

I also work with parents directly to help navigate their responses to challenging parenting moments.
Reaching out for help and inviting a new person into your family story takes enormous courage. Through that strength and commitment to change, things will get better. Perhaps you and your child can’t get out the door without a meltdown. Do you find yourself wishing you could be calmer and measured as you set boundaries with your child? Maybe you worry about leaving your child with others for fear that adults other than you won’t know how to “handle” them. Do you suspect that a past event is impacting your child’s or family’s current difficulties? Psychotherapy at AZ&A can help.

My approach to therapy is based on and tailored to the unique stories, needs and personalities of each person I work with. With each client I have the privilege to work with, I see compassion and curiosity as some of the most powerful tools to go to deeper levels of the heart and mind.
