As I start working with my clients, I seek to thoroughly understand their problems and difficulties, the need for psychotherapy services at this time in their lives, and their expectations and goals of therapeutic treatment. I also explore how past events and experiences from their life contributed to the present problems/difficulties and current ways of thinking, feeling, and behaving. My ultimate goal is to help clients better understand the root cause(s) of their current difficulties, work through their specific issues or concerns, experience new ways of being with other people, and live a more fulfilling and satisfying life.

“The good life is a process, not a state of being. It is a direction not a destination.” Do you find yourself wondering what you can do to feel better—less anxious, more confident, even happy? It seems like you’ve tried everything but nothing seems to work, at least not for very long. You may be able to support others yet you fall short on supporting yourself. You no longer feel like yourself and worry that it could get worse. Imagine what it would feel like not to constantly worry and to be confident in your ability to handle challenging situations. Therapy is a step in practicing self-awareness and self-care.

I have been working with children and adolescents for over 20 years, specializing in anxiety, ADHD, autism , learning disabilities, and other areas of difficulty that children experience. There are many reasons a family seeks services for their child, and it is important for the family to feel that the therapist understands them, their child, and the needs of the family. I seek to gain this understanding, recognizing the fact that all children and families are unique, and that each individual has strengths to draw from to overcome the identified concerns.
