I work with children, adolescents, and their families, and my approach is both flexible and eclectic. I often use Brief Intermittent Therapy. I find that it works best for people to come in for a defined brief period of time (such as 6-8 weeks) and focus on one specific area that needs attention; the time in therapy is more concentrated and effective. When the need arises, I welcome clients back for a "tune up."
**No openings at this time.** We all go through difficult times in our lives, and I believe we all have our strengths when it comes to solving problems. If you are going through a tough time, feeling overwhelmed with new or ongoing challenges feeling anxious, depressed and/or hopeless, I may be able to help you navigate through your struggles. As a client centered and culturally aware psychotherapist, I focus on helping you identify your strengths by finding the right treatment modalities for your problems. By working together, we can identify your goals in the direction you want and create positive changes in your life.
I have been working as a Psychologist, individually and in groups, with children and adults, for many years. I am currently seeing only adults in my practice. My focus is geared to helping people to bring their strengths into their present lives. To move forward through anxiety, depression and/or trauma, I believe that one needs to use the past only to understand the present, but to not live in the past.
I'm so glad that you are considering using therapy to make positive changes in your life. I would be honored to work with you towards the goals that you believe will take you in a better direction. If you meet with me and decide I would be a good fit to be your therapist, we will work together to clarify your goals and make a plan for moving towards them that you can feel confident and hopeful about.
Are you feeling stuck, depressed, or wanting to make a change but don't know how? Whether you're struggling with relationships, family problems, depression, anxiety, grief and loss of a loved one or job, stress, life changes or other concerns, therapy can help you manage your feelings and make lasting changes. It takes strength to reach out for help when things are not working and I welcome the opportunity to work with you and ensure that you feel heard. With a warm and empathic style, I will work with you to better understand your thoughts, feelings, and behaviors.
If your struggling with self, others or maladaptive behaviors I can assist in developing a personalized treatment plan and goals. Utilizing various trainings, beliefs and tested modalities, together we can move towards the life you want, accept the situations that we may not be able to change and weave an eclectic, psychoeducational approach designed to provide tools and develop skills to address many of your stated concerns. Using supportive language, a belief that change is possible and the inherent power of the human spirit, I will walk with you though the changes you seek.
I believe that everyone is in the process of change. We have worked to become who we are now and we will continue to grow into ourselves. That is why I do not judge people, but instead help clients to accept and appreciate their struggles as a foundation for healing. Very little shocks or surprises me so I am particularly well-suited to issues of sexuality and personal expression; and associated issues of shame and fear. I have a sub-specialty in transgender teens and adults. I have an affinity for those with anxiety disorders, depression, trauma, and grief. My primary method is Cognitive-Behavioral talk therapy.
All of us reach times in our lives when we need a little extra support. I am a strength based therapist who utilizes a trauma focused, person centered lens to support clients in reaching their full potential and identified goals. My practice focuses on meeting my clients where they are at and utilizing rapport to make progress towards positive life changes.

I will help you to identify thought and behavioral patterns that are no longer serving you, as we work together to re-write and re-frame your core beliefs and narratives. We will work on boundary setting, advocacy skills, emotion regulation and much more.
