Announcement icon I provide secure, HIPAA-compliant Teletherapy via the Simple Practice platform for all sessions, until further notice.
Therapy should not and cannot be "one size fits all." It should be rooted in a consistent, deep effort to understand who you are and what you need, in relation to the resources you have near you. Therapy should also be practical and offer some fairly immediate results, even though bigger change takes time. It's ultimately about collaboration, and the formation of a helpful relationship. Although I have 25 years of clinical experience to bring to our work, it is more important that you feel we have a good match as we enter this work together. I trust that after we talk, you'll know whether it seems like the right match.
I've spent the last two decades in support of children, youth and families, with a special expertise in adolescents/adolescent development. I work with adult individuals, couples and families, and often focus on helping adolescents and their parents. I understand teens and deeply enjoy working with them.
As the author of an award-winning book on parenting/adolescent development, I can lend you my expertise. But my aim is to help develop YOUR expertise. I provide HIPAA-secure online sessions to clients receiving teletherapy in California, New York and Louisiana.
