I believe that our relationships with our children and partners are amongst the most important relationships we will ever have.
My approach is caring, collaborative, and practical, helping clients clearly articulate goals and then work to accomplish them. I have a strong belief in everyone's innate capacity for growth and healing and my intention is always to help people access and draw wisdom from this inner capacity. In addition to working with individuals in this way, I also have training in family/couples therapy, and work extensively with adolescents, couples, and families. I was a Lecturer for 19 years at the University of Michigan School of Social work and taught courses in Family/Couples Therapy, Adolescent Development and Mental Health.

Relationships are central to my work, whether it be the relationship between a child or adult and myself, or the complex web of relationships within a family. My training and experience in Infant Mental Health--a type of therapy focusing on the attachment relationship between a primary caregiver and and an infant or young child --permeates all aspects of my work. I believe that therapy cannot separate an individual from the context of his or her relationships, past or present. I am creative and flexible in my approach to working with the children , teens, adults and families that I serve.

I have been practicing as a clinical social worker for over 20 years now working with school-age children , adolescents, and adults and it has been my privilege to do so.
Committing to the therapeutic process can be a challenging yet ultimately rewarding experience that can help in doing away with self-defeating behavior patterns and resolving inner conflicts. Most of us can point to a time in our lives when we were feeling overwhelmed with our current life circumstances and the distress that involves. Taking the courageous step of seeking out a therapist we can comfortably engage with can assist in identifying a clear path to change and provide the support one may need in pursuit of those goals.

Sometimes we don't have all of the answers, or it may seem scary to take the first step in asking for help for your child .
I specialize in working with children and pre-adolescents with varying adverse feelings and life experiences that impact their ability to live life to their fullest. Children want to feel important, heard, included, loved, calm, and in control of their thoughts and responses. It is important for children to have meaningful relationships within their family and peer groups, and to experience an overall a sense of belonging regardless of the things they may struggle with. I can help children learn to express their feelings and process personal experiences while promoting a healthy lifestyle.

If you are wondering about how you or your child best learns and functions at home, school, work or friendships, then a neuropsychological evaluation may help you adjust the environment, processes, or relationships that are blocking optimal performance. Working together, we develop a set of questions to answer, for example, "How should my child be taught?" "Why do I have difficulty focusing on my work?" or "Why does my child melt down?" then, through interview, testing, and consulting, we can develop a deep understanding of mental, physical, and emotional strengths and weaknesses that can inform an effective treatment plan.
