Problem areas I often address are anxiety, depression, parenting difficulties, life change, or behavioral problems.
What we endure in our lives can make the future cloudy and seeking help difficult. Acknowledging that you desire change is often the first step towards clarity. Many then find that they need further guidance, which is what has likely brought you here. I believe it is important for my clients to recognize and then use their strengths, past successes, supportive relationships (including the therapeutic one), and own hopes to obtain whatever goal they set forth. Moving forward I hope to build a strong, supportive, open therapeutic relationship which we can use toward a self-fulfilling and clear future.

My areas of expertise include working with individual adult men and women, couples, families, parenting issues, & also recovery from life changing chronic/traumatic illness (brain injury, organ transplant, MS, chronic fatigue).
A safe, empathic therapeutic space for clients to make meaningful changes in their lives," "I help clients make meaningful and necessary changes for overall increased life satisfaction. I do this by providing a safe, non threatening and supportive setting for clients to "do their work" and create a therapeutic space where humor is allowed. If appropriate, a client's sense of their own spirituality is acknowledged and integrated as a resource of empowerment, to sort through feelings, thoughts and behaviors that either help or hinder them in achieving identified goals.

Also, I have expertise in behavioral parent training, anxiety disorders, and treating autism-related concerns.
Are you wondering how to best support your struggling child? Maybe you're a young adult who is struggling? I help children to young adults (ages 2-21) who have behavioral and emotional challenges through short-term, evidence-based treatment. Using a collaborative approach, compassion, and empathy, I identify the intervention that best meets your goals. During sessions, I regularly monitor and review the progress made and actively collaborate with parents throughout sessions. By the end of treatment, I have seen children and young adults leaving feeling more empowered, happier, and better equipped to cope with future challenges.

In addition, I treat a broad range of behavioral related issues such as, ADHD/ADD, ODD, and family conflict/ parenting skills. I am a strong believer that physical health problems significantly increase our risk of developing mental health problems, and vice versa.

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.
