Are you concerned about your child or adolescent? Are they struggling with peer relationships, divorce, school difficulties, worry, sadness, or behavioral issues? Are you struggling with how to respond to and manage your child's behaviors and emotions?

As a Registered Play Therapist, I approach child distress as a response to changes in family structure, nurturing and consistency in caregiver relationships, and coordination between parents, social resources, and schools.
Life events can be stressful. There are moments when we all feel overwhelmed and need support. Therapy provides a safe space to work together in exploring solutions to challenging thoughts, feelings, and situations. Interventions are tailored to individual situations and client needs. This can include use of EMDR for trauma processing and challenging negative cognitions, CBT with a psychodynamic and humanistic approach, and play therapy with children.

Specific types of CBT I utilize include Exposure Response Prevention (ERP), Collaborative Problem Solving, Parent Training, modified Parent-Child Interaction Therapy (PCIT), and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT).
I provide Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT) for children, adolescents, adults, and families. While I treat a wide range of problems, I have particular specialties with OCD and related disorders, anxiety disorders, and many issues that present in childhood. My approach is best characterized as evidence-based, goal-oriented, active, and collaborative. I am trained in a variety of treatment approaches, though, and hope to bring a perspective and flexibility to help you meet your particular goals for psychotherapy.

My goal is to help every child, adolescent, and/or young adult touched by ADHD navigate through their specific challenges, and find their unique areas of brilliance. I have been practicing as a child and adolescent psychologist for over twenty years. I work closely with youth, parents, educators, and families. One of my primary areas of expertise is neuropsychological testing, which has given me great insight into how children and adolescents learn. I founded my own organization, ADHD&U, in 2019 after writing a book about raising my own son with ADHD (Raising Will: Surviving the Brilliance and Blues of ADHD).

As a child and adolescent clinical psychologist, I strongly believe in the power of evidence-based psychology to improve the well-being of children, teens and young adults.
As a parent of a struggling teenage son, you want to do whatever you can to help get your teen on the right path. I help struggling teenage guys discover their identity, realize their strengths, and use those strengths to catapult into adulthood with a sense of competence and confidence. Adolescence is an exciting time where teens form their unique identity, build meaningful social connections, and learn to think in an innovative way. Ironically, what makes adolescence so exciting can also make it enormously stressful for both teens and their caretakers.

Including children (4+), teenagers, and adults.
It takes courage to be seen during a time of difficulty and to seek out support in therapy. I strive to provide a safe, loving, non-judgmental environment in which growth can occur. Through therapy clients learn appropriate coping skills, learn new approaches for addressing their challenges, and learn how to communicate their thoughts and feelings. I draw from a variety of therapeutic modalities from play and art to help young children communicate what they may struggle to do verbally, to cognitive behavioral, solution focused, and narrative therapy for older clients.

Currently I have been consulting with child psychiatrists and other mental health professionals in a variety of settings.
I've been a psychotherapist for over 40 years. What I have found is the most powerfull tool is the relationships I develop with my clients which are often deeply meaningful, based on understanding the depth of the person, often extending to the inclusion of spiritual experience. I am a fully trained marriage and family therapist, and I have graduated from the Minnesota Psychoanalytic Institute as a certified Psychoanalyst. The American Psychoanalytic Institute has awarded me the status of a Training and Supervising Analyst, the highest level of certification awarded. I want to help people find their own sense of truth.
