I have spent 42 years treating adults and couples suffering from depression, disabling anxiety, repeated relational problems, trauma, and grief.I also speciaize in child developmental and play therapies with a range of challenges for which I design treatment plans individually. I determine the course of child treatment according to my assessment of their level of development. I involve parents to varying extents in the therapy. Over the years, I have become most specialized working with separation/divorce, attachment, anxiety, depression, behavioral, and neuro-developmental, and adoption difficulties for children and their families.

Close and warm relationships are key to a successful family life, individual health, and to a happy life as a couple. I work collaboratively with families to improve communication between parent and child, deal with underlying emotions, and to address problems together. I help couples find their way back to the initial strong bond that brought them together. I assist parents in finding successful strategies to deal with emotional outbursts, school difficulties, and sibling conflicts. Together we address specific challenges that children face such as learning differences and mood swings. I specialize in working with adoption and multicultural families.

I bring to my practice the experience of thirty years of professional work with individuals and couples, as well as the wisdom and personal growth that I have gained from dealing with my own life challenges. I am particularly effective with clients as they deal with forming and maintaining intimate relationships, sorting through identity and career conflicts, coping with grief and loss, and managing life transitions. Infertility and adoption issues have long been an area of expertise. All these situations are filled with intense emotionality and anguish yet demand solid, clear thinking.

I have expertise in adoption , infertility, and the sometimes delayed residual experiences of trauma and abuse.
I work with adults, adolescents, and couples, often in transition or crisis. If we work together, you will become more fully self-aware and present as you improve and deepen your relationships with others. I am a warm and engaged participant in the psychotherapy and problem-solving process and as such, I am continually awed by each person's story and the unique reservoirs found to deal with life's difficulties.

I am passionate about helping clients navigate anxiety, relationship challenges, depression, religious and childhood trauma, life transitions, adoption /foster care, and loss.
I believe that effective therapy is rooted in the importance of the individual, and built on trust, comfortability, and unconditional empathy. My treatment approach is person-centered, using methods such as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Strength-Based skills, and Behavioral Modification. I value taking the time to understand my clients’ passions so that I can integrate these into their treatment to build connection in creative ways. I want my clients to be able to not only process their experiences during our sessions, but also leave with practical tools that fit for them.

SE HABLA ESPANOL I believe psychotherapy is a process that helps a person connect deeply with her/himself. By becoming more aware, through the therapeutic relationship, a person comes to understand the basis of his/her conflicts and developmental challenges, which can be manifested by symptoms of depression, anxiety or other distress. I use an interactive approach that focuses on peoples' strengths as well as exploring where they feel stuck. A goal is to help people see themselves realistically, and then to increase their ability to manage thoughts and feelings constructively, enhancing their relationships and their sense of purpose and well-being in the world.

It’s normal and common to have complicated feelings during this time. We believe becoming a parent should be easy, yet for many people, it is not.

Has your teen been recently diagnosed with a health issue, and you are unsure how to help? Do you see your teen or young adult child struggling with anxiety on a daily basis? Do you wish you could help them manage their painful emotions, but you keep getting shut out? Have you been putting off getting support? During these growing years, teens and young adults find ways of dealing with painful emotions. Sometimes there has been a life event or trigger. Sometimes it is the pain of growing up in a fast-paced world. Therapy can be a safe place for you or your adolescent to explore patterns and healthy ways of coping.
