I will meet you where you are in life, and will use adventure, play , experiential, mindfulness, and expressive art activities to help you get where you want to be.
You see your child struggle and you don't know how to help. You hoped that this was just a phase that they would grow out of but you can't ignore the "red flags" you continue to see. You desperately want to fix things for them, but what you have tried isn't working. You're starting to realize that figuring it out on your own isn't the solution. You want help, but you're worried about judgment and labels.

I draw from CBT, DBT, and ACT, as well as play therapy and animal assisted interventions.
If you are a parent who has been watching their child struggle and doesn't know what to do. If you are a young adult adjusting to college and your post college world. If you're an adult who is juggling the many demands and stresses of life. If you're struggling with depression, anxiety, or trauma: you've come to the right place.

Trauma shatters your world and the world around you, including your personal and professional relationships. Finding your wellness requires having a therapist who understands your needs. I specialize in working with trauma and its related disorders. I bring creativity and above all else sincere caring for my clients. With children, I implement and integrate play and sandtray therapy to facilitate and increase the child's confidence. For adolescents and adults, I create a warm self-honoring environment that increases in their ability to develop positive tools to navigate through their traumas, challenges, anxieties, and fears.

Having completed fellowships in Child & Adolescent Psychodynamic Therapy, and Adult Psychodynamic Therapy, I work primarily with children, adolescents, and young adults. I work from a base of psychodynamic and interpersonal talk therapy (in the form of play with younger children) to build awareness and to work through internal distress or conflict. I augment this work by using third-wave CBT modalities, which draw on mindfulness strategies and skills, in order to use ‘achieved awareness and understanding’, to live in new, more balanced, skillful, and regulated ways.

It takes courage to face emotional and relationship problems. With over 20 years professional experience treating clients and consulting to businesses, I specialize in helping people find and utilize their strengths and sideline their difficulties. With children and adults, I specialize in treating complex anxiety, attachment, and learning issues and developing talent and leadership. Once clients are freed from the crippling impact of excessive anxiety, emotional dysregulation, or self defeating behavior patterns, drawing upon Positive Psychology and Mindfulness techniques helps us identify and capitalize on personal strengths. Clients are able to heal - thrive - grow - bloom into excellence.

Are you experiencing anxiety, depression, parenting difficulties, chronic stress, life transitions or the effects of trauma? Would you like psychotherapy to be a collaborative process, where we determine a personalized approach to our work together? I typically blend insight-oriented therapy to deepen self-understanding, mindfulness practices to cultivate awareness and compassion, cognitive-behavioral interventions for symptom relief, and mind-body medicine for regulating the nervous system. With specialized training in yoga and meditation, I enjoy interweaving Western clinical psychology with Eastern yoga and mindfulness-based practices for a holistic, strengths based, mind-body approach to health and well being.

I also have considerable experience working with individuals with a traumatic history, including sexual, physical, and emotional abuse. Within my practice, I also offer child, adolescent, and adult psychological testing, including emotional, cognitive, and academic assessment.
