I have experienced great success with couples and families to provide relief from fighting, improving partnering and parenting skills, addressing intimacy/communication problems, and individual solution oriented therapy with adults.
Sometimes things in your life may feel too hard to handle on your own. If you are tired of working with a therapist who just sits and says "uh uh", if you feel stuck, unable to heal , repair, and navigate the path to make better choices and confront what you have avoided, then my approach which has been successful for my clients over the years can help you move forward and feel healthier and happier.. Whether long standing issues or reactions to recent stressors, from our first visit, my role is that you feel welcomed, safe, and supported.

In addition, I offer Parenting Consultation to address challenging behaviors in children as well as children and adults diagnosed with Developmental Disabilities.
I believe that individuals can improve their relationships and lives through insight and acceptance, and by changing problematic behaviors. I offer support and guidance by creating a collaborative, welcoming, and empathic therapy environment. The relationship between client and therapist is an important part of the work, and I pay close attention to this dynamic as therapy progresses. My clients are typically college students, adults, and parents looking for guidance. My approach is informed by Psychodynamic and Cognitive Behavioral (CBT) therapies, I also draw from other modalities to customize treatment to each individual's therapy goals.

How do I effectuate change? I believe change occurs from a sustained active approach with the therapist. Why is there a need for change? Many people report affective states of anxiety, depression, and stress that are inhibiting them in their work, personal lives, and enjoyment of life. My education and experience put me in a unique position to give people the understanding to find satisfaction from their personal, family and work life. Therapeutic interactions are in the here and now. Understanding often leads to an improved quality of life; alleviating anxiety, depressive feelings as well as fears of being stuck.

I believe that most children and adolescents can benefit from connecting with another adult to help them sort through their struggles, even short-term. Working in schools for the past 18 years has taught me how to work collaboratively with all the people in your child's life to help them to achieve success. I am able to see the "whole child" as a result, and treat accordingly. I have found that child and adolescent therapists are few and far between, and I hope to be a resource to you.

I work with adults and adolescents who face the usual and unusual problems that arise from living, and who wish to deeply explore what matters most in their lives. As a lifelong student/teacher/writer on mindfulness and psychotherapy, many clients wish to draw on mindfulness practice and understanding in our work together. However, I am well trained over the course of many decades in a breadth of techniques, and draw on a range of approaches as we collaborate on the question of "what works" in therapy and life itself.

I provide my clients with a safe environment for therapy or coaching, and ongoing respect. My clients share “their stories”, past, present, life, stress/transition, mental health, family/couple, goals & other. My style is interactive, I like to build upon my client's strengths as we work together to achieve their goals. As a Therapist & Life Coach, I strive to provide my clients with a positive experience. Treatment should conclude with them feeling better about themselves & having met "Their Goals”. The passion I felt for the career & people I worked with many year's ago, and today, remains.

A lot of thought can go into choosing a therapist for you or your family member. Therapy starts with a unique personal relationship that has appropriate professional boundaries and allows you to explore your present dilemma and its relationship to your inner life. With children I use play and talk. With older adolescents and adults therapy is primarily verbal but it is always important to keep a sense of playful exploration even when facing difficult or painful issues. If this approach sounds right for you contact me to set up an initial visit. I am only working virtually via Zoom and no longer working with children under 12.
