With 40+ years working as a psychologist, I work with a variety of clients struggling with mental health and life issues. Many clients seek my help for anxiety, depression, serious and persistent mental illness and life transitions. My patients include children as young as 7, adolescents, adults and seniors in their 80's. Clients are often referred to me for Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, relationship issues and sports-related performance concerns. I also have experience working with individuals and families where there are life-threatening health issues, infertility and pregnancy loss for both mothers and fathers.

I see caregivers as the primary change maker in their child’s life.
I see my role as a therapist is walking with you while you navigate where you want to be. I trust that you know what you need and where you want to go even if it is not clear to you right now. My job is to help you find that clarity and stability, give you some tools that can help you along the way and cheer you on. As a therapist, I have a non- directive style that allows you to work on what is important to you. I have an interactive style that uses individual and family conversation. Also, I use play and sand tray to increase connection, and access painful content that can be difficult to express with words.

Sometimes we find ourselves struggling, and it seems that no matter how hard we try, we cannot seem to find a way out on our own. It can be difficult to seek help, and I believe that a collaborative, trusting, and empathic therapeutic relationship serves as the foundation for clients to experience meaningful growth and healing. I provide therapy to adults, children, couples, and families. Some of my specialties include working with adults recovering from trauma; facing relationship issues; or suffering from anxiety or depression. I also often work with children struggling with anxiety, perfectionism, or life transitions.

We work with individuals of all ages with anxiety, mood and related issues across the lifespan. When working with younger children, we meet with parents without the child for the first evaluation session, and then meet with the child individually during the second evaluation session.Our center also routinely works with college-aged and young adult clients. Here, our therapists incorporate components of therapy geared specifically to this age group: identity development, fostering independence and autonomy, and helping clients navigate the challenges experienced during their transition into adulthood.

I am a dedicated therapist who provides empathy, compassion, and humor in individual therapy sessions for children, teenagers, and young adults. I am passionate about working with individuals who have experienced trauma that arises as depression, anxiety, and behavior difficulties. Childhood experiences often continue to influence our lives as we transition into adolescence and adulthood. Clients that I work with tend to have difficulties with asserting boundaries, experience low self-esteem, adversity to stress, and perfectionistic tendencies. I welcome you to give space for you or your child to process life experiences.

When working with children, I utilize play therapy techniques to engage each child in the therapeutic process.
Healing isn't just about alleviating symptoms; it's about fostering growth, resilience, and a renewed sense of purpose. My practice primarily focuses on providing therapy to individuals who are facing symptoms of anxiety, depression, ADHD, grief and loss, stress, and trauma. I provide support to adolescents and adults struggling with self-esteem, family and peer relationship issues, co-dependency, family conflict, and life transitions. Additionally, I am trained in Love and Logic Parenting Curriculum, which encourages parents to minimize power struggles within the parent-child relationships.

In my career I have worked with adults, children, families, and couples all with diverse backgrounds and mental health concerns.
I believe in providing all of my clients with the best therapy possible by using an approach that fits who they are as a person. I want my clients to have a safe, open space to be themselves, ask for what they need, and feel comfortable every time they come in.

I strive to help clients reach a space where real healing is achieved and to have them leave sessions feeling understood and closer to their goals.
