Being so close to your child and the issues at hand can make it difficult to see what is really going on. That's where I step in. I'm like a pair of glasses that help you see more clearly. Whether you're concerned about the path your child is on, unsure about daily parenting challenges (including tween to teen challenges), feeling a disconnect within your family, or just want to bring some harmony into your own life, working together with me can help. Please visit my website, call or email for more information.

I specialize in adolescents and aging. Individuals and families typically seek support on a variety of presenting concerns including, but not limited, increasing communication; managing anxiety, depression, or other mood disorders; self-harm; social pressure; academic stress; adjustment to life changes; strengthening relationships; and future planning.

I have a slightly informal, collaborative approach. I am interactive in sessions in that I ask questions, provide feedback, share resources, and, at times, assign homework (don't worry - I don't grade it!). Often, counseling clients move to a coaching format, once the presenting issues are resolved.
