Some of my experience includes dealing with ADHD, Asperger's Syndrome and Traits, Parenting Issues, Adoption, Anxiety (including PTSD and OCD), Depression and other Mood Disorders, Marital/Couple Problems, Adult-Teen Developmental Issues and Conflicts, Problems of Early Childhood, Personality Disorders, Transitions in life such as Divorce or Loss, and formal Cognitive and Personality Assessments.
It takes a lot of courage to seek help, especially in a world that unfairly stigmatizes getting psychological services. Lack of understanding of what therapy is and how people can benefit from it prevents some from using professional services to know and understand themselves better, to improve relationships, and to live more meaningful, fulfilling lives regardless of their challenges. Sometimes people have troubling symptoms due to anxiety, depression, and other disorders and need help to address these symptoms and their causes. I use a variety of approaches to help clients. My goal is to empower clients through a healthy, therapeutic relationship.

I emphasize a collaborative approach to therapy--I bring 24 years of clinical experience, as well as enthusiasm, hope, and a dose of humor, and ask only that you bring an openness to change. Together, we identify specific life goals and generate plans to achieve them. Ultimately, you will come to understand that you make perfect sense; you may just not have been able to use this self-awareness to make the most productive decisions. My strong suit is quickly identifying underlying problems and patterns, as well as personal strengths and resources, and from there we chart your personal path.

As children grow and mature, they face a wide variety of developmental challenges. Parents can begin to wonder, "Is this behavior normal?" or "Do we need help?" Oftentimes, the answer is yes to both questions. With over fifteen years of experience in providing counseling services to children; I have been able to help them and their parents navigate a wide array of issues. Because parents are the most important people in any child's life, I strongly emphasize family involvement in the counseling process while protecting the client's confidentiality.

Searching for the right therapist can be a confusing, overwhelming process, but congratulations on taking the first step! Prioritizing you or your child’s mental health while juggling other stressors and responsibilities in life can be difficult, but is very necessary and important. I believe that everyone deserves treatment that is created specifically to target one’s own symptoms, issues, goals, and life story.

Too many racing thoughts and not enough time in a day for those thoughts? Need a place to just be yourself, free from judgment? I work to create a safe space by providing a protected and tranquil environment. I provide clients and their families with the tools to overcome many day to day obstacles to include stress and anxiety, depression, body image concerns and life transitions. I employ a dialectical behavior therapy approach, which challenges individuals and their support systems to step outside of their comfort zones and focus on present day stressors.

Seeking out an Autism Spectrum Disorder evaluation for your child can be a scary and overwhelming process. Often, and quite unfortunately, families are waiting for months at a time for these appointments to even occur. Through New Beginnings, Verbal Beginnings' diagnostic program, I seek to help fill this gap and provide these services in a comfortable and supportive setting to help children obtain the intervention services they need.

I believe that the power of therapy comes through the understanding of how self defeating patterns of behavior interfere with our ability to have a happy and productive life. I believe that focusing and building on our strengths will enhance our functioning. Examining our behavior is critical to developing healthy options for ourselves and in our relationships. Through an open and respectful process we will examine the areas in your life that have interfered with your ability to make positive, forward thinking choices. As you develop different coping strategies the hope of change will support healing and growth.

I started 911 Help For Parents & Relationships after many years of working with children, adolescents, and families. I discovered that not only were the children struggling, but so were their parents. I sought out more training to develop a specialty in Parenting Coaching, and later Relationship Coaching. In addition, I now have a special expertise and interest in Infidelity Recovery as many of the individuals, families, and couples I've worked with have been affected by this complex and little-understood issue.

Asperger's Syndrome Therapists
Asperger's Syndrome is a high functioning form of autism. People in Columbia with Asperger's often have difficulties with social skills. They might also have problems with motor regulation. However, unlike many with autism, their language and cognitive skills are largely intact.

People with Asperger's often have an orientation toward detail and an interest in systemizing, which can look like obsessiveness. Some may show remarkable facility in a narrowly focused and usually non-social area, such as baseball statistics or train schedules.

Those with Asperger's typically lack the ability to understand the perspectives and feelings of others. But they often benefit from sustained training in social awareness, such as learning how to read facial expressions and interaction skills. When encouraged to cope with their difficulties, many with Asperger's capitalize on their intense interests to become successful in a specific field of work.
