Sometimes people merely want to be heard, other times they want direction and coaching, other times mediation between those that are important in your life.
Listening is a lost art in modern psychotherapy. Change begins when you are heard and understood. I use simple, effective, proven techniques to lead my clients to greater insight, which leads to change. Individuals, couples, and families are my focus from adolescents through senior citizens. I help folks manage life's many stressors including but not limited to loss, grief, separation, substance abuse, and illness.

We tend to box ourselves into limited possibilities or live a life that doesn’t align with our values which can lead to guilt, shame, worrying, and fixating on the past.
I work with adolescents, teens and adults. In my work with children and teens I strive to create an environment where children and teens feel safe to share their concerns. I work with a wide range of problems of childhood and adolescence. When working with children I will utilize Cognitive Behavioral strategies as well as techniques drawn from Thera-play, art therapy, and sand tray work. In working with adults, I recognize that you are the expert on your own life.
