I connect well with children and adolescents as they work their way through school and peer relationship issues. I believe that family therapy is the most effective intervention when it comes to this population. I have a passion for and work effectively with folks who have autism, specifically Asperger's disorder. I also form strong and long lasting therapeutic relationships with adults who are seeking personal growth and positive change in their lives."

"People often enter therapy during times of emotional pain, uncertainty or at a time when they are seeking more meaning in their lives. Each person has within them a powerful impulse toward growth and healing. I trust that impulse and trust the therapeutic relationship to reveal your strengths, wisdom, and the next steps to your growth and healing. There is something of value in even the most difficult circumstances. When these circumstances are approached with an openness to learning, major transformations can take place. I find that the willingness to look inside yourself is a key factor in your healing. "

"There is a lot of pressure in today’s world to feel good, to handle our troubles on our own. We are led to believe that the sign of a healthy life is the absence of struggle, that we are weak if we reach out for help. But, it is rare, if even possible, to find a person who does not struggle, at least a little. If struggle is a part of life, then I believe we must also contain the potential to struggle well. To struggle takes strength and courage. If you are reading this, you have already made your first step towards discovering your potential. "

"My primary focus in therapy - be it with individuals, couples or families - is to support and facilitate my clients in their journey to a deeper understanding and awareness of themselves. This goal is best achieved, I believe, by encouraging self-acceptance, compassion and insight, and by forming with each client a safe and nonjudgmental relationship. It is within this alliance that, together, we can explore, understand, and begin to gently dismantle the obstacles and unproductive patterns of coping that, although once useful - indeed often vital - in dealing with painful life events or childhood relationships, may now be keeping them from enjoying a more fulfilling life."

"The question I’m always trying to ask as a counselor is not, “How can I help my clients cope better?” but rather, “How can I help them not have to cope quite so much in the first place?” Coping gets exhausting after a while, doesn’t it? Maybe you’ve been in counseling before, (maybe for a really long time) and maybe you’ve already learned some good ways of coping. I’m more interested in helping you truly, permanently heal on a deeper level so you don't have to take so many of those deep breaths. I've also learned that we usually can’t there just by talking about it. Talk therapy is often really helpful, but usually not enough. "

"Most people who identify a need for therapy seem to be dealing with natural defense systems that help manage shock and developmental trauma. A defense response may be anxiety, depression, dissociation, psychosis, avoidant attachment, etc. A part of therapy is simply developing understanding and acceptance of defense mechanisms, then there is more capacity to reclaim or recover self regulation, co-regulation and self concept. I am interested in working with all people who have experienced trauma and as well as getting to the causal factors, developing grounding in the present and hope about the future."

I facilitate Emotionally Focused Therapy, used worldwide, that helps couples create a trusting and loving relationship. With an emphasis on emotions, EFT helps couples learn how to stop their no-win fights, let their defenses down, and share more from the heart. With mindfulness, couples become more self aware and more accepting and empathic towards their partner. Over time, couples feel more open and loving toward each other and move much easier through any conflicts that arise."
