I offer child and adolescent therapy, along with adult counseling.
Do you live in a constant state of anxiety? Are you experiencing feelings of depression that you have difficulty managing? I am experienced in helping people find solutions to manage their life in a more positive light. I believe that the connection the therapist makes with the client is vital. That connection allows the client to open up and express their concerns to the therapist, and together they can discover strategies for improvement. I help clients work on symptom reduction and help them achieve the goals they want in their lives by creating small, achievable steps.

Do you have a child or adolescent that is suffering from anxiety or depression? Transitions can be difficult and result in symptoms, stress and unhappiness for some youth. I work to help each person get through their challenges and find their strengths. Families can benefit from a therapist who helps them to process their feelings and experiences. Parents can feel overwelmed when their child is suffering.

We are a child and family psychology practice. My associates and I believe in a cooperative treatment experience where client and therapist share responsibility for the identification and mutual direction of problem solving strategies. We are convinced of the importance of involving significant others in the treatment process when possible. Often children and adolescents react to problems in the context of school and family. We value feedback from teachers and staff professionals and look for collaborative relationships in pursuing the best needs of the child or adolescent .

I have experience working with children, adolescent , young adult and adults with behavioral issues, ADHD, autism spectrum, anxiety, depression and self-esteem issues.
It can be difficult to reach out for help at times. It shows bravery and strength and may take personal motivation to do so. Reaching out is that first step showing you have what takes to heal. I will meet you at your point of need. I help clients like you develop the skills needed to create change, accomplish goals, and live a healthier happier life. With success we begin to change our beliefs that were creating hardship to ones that create growth, health, confidence, and acceptance. I strive to treat every person as family with a warm, compassionate approach.

With an MA in Marriage and Family Therapy and professional certification In Child and Adolescent Psychoanalytic Psychotherapy, I possess specialized knowledge and training to understand the complex emotional life of children, adolescents, and families.
Sometimes children and adolescents feel sad, anxious, and overwhelmed by changing life situations, which may impact the development of their full academic, emotional and social potential. Sometimes a home can be a seat of conflict instead of refuge, because of stressful situations, such as divorce, financial difficulties, or stage-of-life changes. Understanding and working through the complex emotional issues confronting children, adolescents and their families is the focus of my training and my practice. Our goal in treatment is empowerment through strategies that build resilience, strength and hopeful perspectives.

“Dig within. Within is the wellspring of Good; and it is always ready to bubble up, if you just dig.” Marcus Aurelius. I've been fortunate enough to witness the ability that psychotherapy has to reflect a clear and uplifting view of your true self. Our emotions are deep, complex, and often misunderstood. By safely building meaningful context around your emotions, thoughts, and experiences, you understand yourself more clearly. This understanding gives you the freedom to pursue a life that makes you truly happy.

My ideal client is someone who is open to explore their feelings, beliefs, behavior, and relationships and undertake the journey of change. This will not always be easy; change is difficult and we often times get stuck in unhealthy patterns of behaviors and beliefs. Change can be uncomfortable - sometimes even frightening - even when your in pain. My ideal client is willing to do battle with their ambivalence and their fears and participate in the struggle to learn new ways to cope and deal with what hurts them.

Teen Therapists
Adolescence can be a time of both disorientation and discovery. The transitional period can raise questions of independence and identity; as adolescents cultivate their sense of self, they may face difficult choices about academics, friendship, sexuality, gender identity, drugs, and alcohol.

Most teens have a relatively egocentric perspective on life; a state of mind that usually abates with age. They often focus on themselves and believe that everyone else—from a best friend to a distant crush—is focused on them too. They may grapple with insecurities and feelings of being judged. Relationships with family members often take a backseat to peer groups, romantic interests, and appearance, which teens perceive as increasingly important during this time.

The transition can naturally lead to anxiety about physical development, evolving relationships with others, and one's place in the larger world. Mild anxiety and other challenges are typical, but serious mental health conditions also emerge during adolescence.
