Announcement icon I am offering telehealth (video and phone sessions) during this difficult time. It is safe and secure (and nobody has to get dressed up!)
If you feel stuck, confused, locked in the same "dance" in your thoughts, behavior, and relationships, I will help you with the untangling. We will work together to find patterns, solve problems, and develop resilience and self-awareness. I work with individuals, families, and couples, and particularly enjoy young children and adolescents. I am particularly interesting in working with Gifted children and their parents...doing assessments, determining strengths and weaknesses, and helping families with the special opportunities involved. I also specialize in Couples work, using techniques that are evidence based and effective. I provide private Gifted Testing and ADHD, Learning Differences, and Memory Screening evaluations.
I have been in practice 38 years, which gives me the freedom to enjoy what I do, say what I think, and feel comfortable using a mix of therapeutic techniques, all leavened with humor, and a sense of adventure.
The best approach is to have a session and see how we 'fit"....that decision will be entirely yours, and I urge you to "know what you know" about how you and a therapist work together. Therapy is an Art, as well as a Science, and a good 'match' is crucial!
