Announcement icon I am accepting new clients and am offering phone and video sessions via Zoom or Skype.
Life can be challenging, and often we can find ourselves at a point where we wonder how to go on. We get stuck, feel overwhelmed and discouraged and wonder what the next step is. No matter what your experience is at this time, if you feel like you can benefit from having a therapist collaborate with you to research stuck patterns and personal problems and create options for recovery and self-improvement, then consider contacting me.
I practice client-centered therapy for couples, families and individuals using DBT (Dialectical Behavior Therapy) skills training & coaching. I specialize in working with adults, adolescents and children with ADD/ADHD. I have 31 years of experience, including working within non-profit and county agencies, in school settings, as well as in private practice.
I bring a wide variety of life experiences which allows me to connect with my clients on many different levels. My cultural heritage, my spiritual beliefs, my many job experiences, and so many challenges in my personal life inform my work with compassion and resonance.
