I enjoy working with children and their families. I believe that children that experience poor impulse control and inattention (ADHD), anxiety, depression, grief and trauma do not necessarily have the skills to express their feelings in ways that adults can relate and therefore are sometimes misunderstood. I work with these children and their families to best identify ways to communicate those feelings in a safe, healthy environment through the use of play therapy and expressive therapies.

We are all going through stressful times in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic. I will be available in the office or phone zoom for new and existing clients. I take all insurances and eaps . I help people of all ages (individuals & couples) with anxiety and depression. My clients have told me that I provide a relaxed and caring atmosphere. I understand that it can be a difficult step to come to therapy; I will help you feel comfortable. I provide a free consultation (no co-pay for your first meeting with me). I will work closely with you to set goals so you can start feeling better quickly. I also work with children and teens.

Are you feeling disconnected from your family and friends? Do you find yourself in the same patterns you swore you would not repeat? Maybe you have forgotten how to find the strength in yourself or the ability to trust others. Very often in the struggle of day-to-day life we become overwhelmed by emotions, demands, responsibilities, and meeting the needs of others. It’s easy to lose sight of your own needs and purpose, but it’s often hard to ask for help. I enjoy working with individuals including teens, adults and older adults as well as families that are ready to consider a different way of doing things and to make a change.

When you are looking for a therapist, that decision often comes during times of crisis. This loss of balance and connection makes it hard to make decisions or trust anyone. But as you take this first step, I will honor your trust with a relationship that is free of judgement and focused on finding your foundation. Whether you are coping with trauma, depression, stress, anxiety, life transition, relationship or marital issues, we can work together to make things better. I bring to the table a deep knowledge of a diverse set of treatment methods that allow me to tailor your therapy uniquely to your personality, challenges and life.

Over my forty-five year career I have worked with many different people of every race, age, and problem type. I listen with a supportive, trained ear, and help my clients find the best coping strategies that will enable them to be happier. Even if only one person is in my office, I see that person as part of their family system, and help them make positive changes that will increase good feelings and reduce conflict. Nearly everyone goes through a rough period in their life when psychotherapy could be helpful for getting back on track.

Everyone deserves support through life's most difficult times. For some, it may have been an event that occurred years ago, and for others it is more recent. Seeking professional help and support is often times the first step to coping with a difficult life period and is a huge sign of courage and investment in oneself. I believe that healing and empowerment are wholly achievable and begin with a trusting and accepting therapist-client relationship in a supportive therapeutic environment.

Add to this the emotional stress of family conflict, divorce, defiant children, an illness or death in the family, and you begin to understand why more and more people are seeking the help of mental health professionals.

An ideal client is someone who may struggle with anxiety, depression, forming or maintaining close relationships, loss of normalcy, death of a loved one, and/or work-induced stress. Life may be so busy that they may not even have time to consider what brings joy, creativity, and inspiration. Maybe they feel overburdened by the never ending list of needs from others in their life and they just need a safe place to express themselves. Many people have professional careers, families, own property, etc. However they may feel stuck and unable to cope with unresolved grief and loss, anxiety, depression and that's where I can help.
