Adult clients come to me when feeling stuck, anxious or depressed. Others are coping with trauma, loss, or a major life change. Using a variety of approaches, I help clients gain insight and self-acceptance, to navigate life transitions from a position of strength, to grow in relationships, and to make meaning from loss. Therapy is a wonderful form of self-care, like eating well and maintaining friendships. Whether you are in crisis or just feeling stuck, I strive to be an honest, accepting, and active partner in your journey to greater fulfillment.
I also work with children and adolescents to address emotional, social and behavioral issues, as well as family crises like separation/divorce, illness, and grief. I combine play therapy, which utilizes children's natural means of self-expression, with cognitive behavioral techniques, to give children tools for adjusting to change, expressing feelings, and gaining confidence.
Partnering with children and families is one of my greatest joys. I strive to be a playful and accepting "team mate" to my youngest clients, while also providing parents (including expectant and postpartum moms and dads) with the support and tools they need to raise healthy children, while feeling fulfilled and effective themselves.
