"My practice focuses on youth and family issues, although I am also experienced in treating individuals. My clinical experience has been in school and office settings. I work with clients on issues such as adolescence, parenting, blended families, family conflict, relationship partner conflict, child defiance, anger management/temperamental behavior, anxiety, depression, grief, and trauma. Broadly speaking, I take a humanistic, client-centered approach to therapy but I am also influenced by the positive discipline model of child rearing."

"Over the course of life, people develop coping skills to deal with all kinds of emotional challenges. However, sometimes, individuals encounter situations for which they have no preparation or find the usually adequate coping skills are overwhelmed by the enormity of particular problem/problems. There may be patterns or behaviors that one feels stuck in or fated to repeat over-and-over. (Do you feel "stuck" but you cannot figure out how to release yourself?) In those instances a solution focused, warm, steady, and skillful therapist can assist individuals to understand the root causes of those distressing patterns."

"Often clients come into therapy with me when they are stuck in life, in a crisis, or in transition in a relationship or job or when emotions are just becoming too much to cope with. They want a change but are not always sure how to go about it. Taking the step to begin therapy is not easy for most people, but starting therapy often leads to a real opportunity to change, in ways that are not always expected. My style is warm, inviting and engaging, and I seek to connect to each person where they are at in life."

"Are you struggling with relationships? Are you having the same fight with your partner over and over? Have you lost the emotional connection you used to have? Do you find yourself trapped in similar relationship dynamics in most of your relationships and feel helpless to change those negative patterns? Intimate relationships touch our deepest relational wounds. That's why we can be overwhelmed with the pain they bring and often, at points, feel like giving up. When attended to with gentleness and compassion these wounds can heal and we can experience a new level of connection and love - one which we couldn't have imagined. "

" Before therapy, clients often feel defeated, overwhelmed and at a loss for what to do next. Clients I have worked with said that the work we did together alleviated these stressful emotions and gave them an increased sense of empowerment in their ability to manage the outcomes of their lives. I always try and make sure my clients walk away from each session with a new perspective and a new way to respond to the situations that brought the into therapy. I have worked with diverse populations and believe therapy can be a healing space for those who have experienced oppression, discrimination, or judgment for who they are/or love. "

"The three core things I believe about psychotherapy: 1. People are inherently healthy. 2. Therapy is not just about symptoms. 3. There is nothing mysterious about whether therapy is working. Traditionally, psychotherapy has been associated with illness while emotional health has been left to the self-help movement. The theory I practice sees everyone as essentially healthy. As a result, there is no ceiling on "getting better." People with symptoms want to feel more like him or herself which I aim to accomplish as quickly as possible. Someone coping pretty well, however, might seek help to become more effective."

"Self-esteem can affect your mental health. Negative thoughts about yourself can lead to depression, anxiety, panic attacks, anger or other issues. Self-esteem begins in childhood and may fluctuate depending on your life experiences. There may be a point in time that you no longer recognize who you are. You start to please everyone, and lose focus on your wants and needs. You begin to doubt yourself and your abilities, stay in unhealthy relationships, make self-destructive decisions (alcohol, promiscuity). You become stuck and cannot move forward. You lose yourself and who you are."

"ASSERTIVENESS COACHING: GET WHAT YOU WANT AND IMPROVE RELATIONSHIPS Most of us don't like conflict. Some of us worry that by expressing our true feelings, we will be seen as selfish or confrontational. Fearing rejection, we push their needs aside, but are disappointed when we don't get what we want. This cycle can lead to withdrawal, resentment, anger, and depression. Being assertive is often confused with self-centeredness and aggression. Learning the difference can pave the way to greater self expression, and life satisfaction."
