My approach to practice focuses on a combination of a problem-solving perspective, cognitive behavioral therapy as well as structural family therapy.
My calling to this career began when I was young and discovered a passion for helping others. My desire to grow and develop in a people-based service has only matured as I have. One of the most important aspects of this industry for me is the creation of a safe space where both me and my clients can bring their authentic selves to sessions. Through my experiences in life and as a social worker I have developed skills necessary to create a safe and productive environment for children and adults alike.

Are you weary of feeling lonely, tired, sad? Perhaps you're scared or confused and don't know what to do about your marriage--the two of you are almost like strangers, or you fight all the time, or you're facing infidelity? Maybe you know your child is troubled, and you're not quite sure how to be of help. A special strength of mine is healing connections--connections between people as well as personal connections to the inner self--whether I see you in a couple, a family , or as an individual.

I work with children and teens and their families. I address issues including problematical attachment with parents and/or caregivers, negative self-image, trauma, depression, anxiety, anger, oppositionality, poor communication and social skills, acting out behaviors, sibling problems, and difficulties in school. As a therapist, I establish a safe "container" in which to work with children and parents together in order to strengthen a child's positive sense of self, reinforce the family system and bonds of attachment, and promote behavioral and emotional regulation. I work with teachers and school administrators to help children learn and thrive in school

The quality of the relationship you have with your family 's therapist is the key factor that predicts a successful outcome.
Are you worried about your child, but unsure what to do? Are you concerned about your child's social skills? Is it getting harder and harder to manage your child's emotional outbursts? Does your child suffer from excessive anxieties? Are you having the same conflicts with your child, but making no progress? Is your child having difficulty completing homework or work at school? Is your family going through difficult changes, like separation, divorce, or death of a family member? Are you willing to do whatever it takes to bring about the changes you want for your child and your family ?

In dealing with families in family therapy, I make everyone in the family responsible for their behavior and committed to being a positive change agent in getting the family where it needs to be.
I have been in private practice for thirty years. I work well with families and adolescents. I tend to be more directive and confrontational in my counseling methodology. Having been in the U.S. Marine Corps and combat tested, I work well with those suffering from PTSD. I use cognitive behavioral therapy as I believe it gets to the point and allows one to make signifiant changes quickly. There are two things we do - think and behave. Change the way you think and behave to more positive and we have a positive outcome.

Family relationships, couples, divorce and related step- family issues are all strong areas of interest.
How do you go from feeling overwhelmed and lost to clarity and a solid sense of self? Contemplating this journey informs my work as a psychotherapist. In my experience, the single most important factor that leads to significant change is the development of a trusting client-therapist relationship. This allows trust in new possibilities,and seeing yourself differently and considering this new sense of self. I liken therapy to reorganizing heavy furniture in a room and in some cases getting rid of pieces. The furniture represents the client's view of self. With acceptance and empathic curiosity, change can begin.

Psychotherapy, whether individual, couples', family , or with coaching for ADHD, academic/dissertation, parenting, for a positive body image is the most rewarding & lasting adventure.
I have a passion for walking people through the therapeutic process, for healing old wounds, solving problems and seeing profound changes in my clients' lives. All of my clients are my ideal clients. I love the psychotherapy process, both personally and professionally. In my opinion psychotherapy is both a necessity and a luxury in staying sane. Taking the time to care about yourself and/or your family , children or loved ones, focusing on what is hurting and not working well and trusting me to offer perspectives, insights, connections, ideas, advice, and understanding can turn most challenging situations around.

Many challenges in life can feel like they are uniquely yours to bear alone; however, this is rarely the case. People visit me concerned about how they feel and function in key life and professional relationships. I have worked with individuals, couples, and families on a variety of overlapping issues such as anxiety and depression, self-esteem, parenting children with special needs, setting limits with adult children, work/life balance issues, and sexual desire issues in committed relationships. Often these issues can be helped by addressing the common denominator of individual development within a family or relationship system.

My office is a place where clients can speak openly about their hopes, needs, and fears - with warmth, care, and authentic feedback in return.
