I provided individual, adolescent , and couples therapy.
I believe we all have the capacity to improve our lives and understand ourselves more fully. It takes a great deal of courage to ask for help. Appreciating and respecting that courage, my work is to help my clients attain their goals. We do this together as a team. Being stuck personally or professionally is poignantly uncomfortable. Together we can move thru and beyond this state and get to the other side. To address your individuality I utilize a wide array of interventions: mindfulness-based talk therapy, somatic techniques, art therapy, music therapy.

My work as a child/ adolescent therapist includes work with parents as well.
Accepting New Patients --- Taking the step to begin therapy is a brave choice. I understand that it frequently comes at a time of vulnerability when emotional pain or life problems are intense. As a therapist, I provide a safe, non-judgmental space to begin understanding life circumstances that are creating concerns for you. I approach therapy as a collaborative process and understand the importance of trust and empathy in the therapeutic relationship. I am a licensed clinical social worker (LCSW) and I work with people of all ages.

I lecture and teach in the community about chronic illness, adolescent development, and the creative process.
We thrive as humans when we understand ourselves. I work creatively and compassionately with children, adolescents and adults of all ages to deepen and broaden self-understanding. Emotional pain - like physical pain - is a signal that help is needed and that something must change. Psychotherapy can be that powerful catalyst for healing. I believe in meeting people where they are, listening intently, and co-creating a safe and brave space where my clients can grow.

In addition to marital and premarital counseling, I see individual men, women, and teen boys struggling with anger, anxiety, depression, ADHD, bi-polar disorder, substance abuse, pornography and other sexual addictions.
Over half of my work is with couples. I see and hear needs and feelings long suppressed for fear of being hurt. I empathize and acknowledge real wrongs and real emotional damage to trust and respect. I hear both sides. I also offer hope. I recognize in marital conflict clear evidence that they still mean so much to each other. I know how difficult a process forgiveness and then trust building really are. Slowly, when even one spouse is ready to love again, I equip them to express their hearts with a gentle strength, and to hear with compassion.

While play therapy provides an opportunity for healing even when the child cannot put words to their discomfort, the play room is set up to be comfortable for the child that needs to play, as well as the teen that prefers to talk.
In my practice I work with families and children who have experienced trauma and are having attachment difficulties. Many children I see have pre-verbal trauma from parental stress during pregnancy, adoption, neglect, or abuse. Some of the children I see are experiencing traumatic stress due to gender fluidity or gender dysphoria. Because trauma is the result of feeling helpless in a situation, many of the families I see have never thought of their child's behavior as a symptom of a life trauma. This shift in perspective is often the beginning of the healing process.

Teen Therapists
Adolescence can be a time of both disorientation and discovery. The transitional period can raise questions of independence and identity; as adolescents cultivate their sense of self, they may face difficult choices about academics, friendship, sexuality, gender identity, drugs, and alcohol.

Most teens have a relatively egocentric perspective on life; a state of mind that usually abates with age. They often focus on themselves and believe that everyone else—from a best friend to a distant crush—is focused on them too. They may grapple with insecurities and feelings of being judged. Relationships with family members often take a backseat to peer groups, romantic interests, and appearance, which teens perceive as increasingly important during this time.

The transition can naturally lead to anxiety about physical development, evolving relationships with others, and one's place in the larger world. Mild anxiety and other challenges are typical, but serious mental health conditions also emerge during adolescence. Finding a teen therapist in Clayton and addressing a disorder early on can help ensure the best possible outcome.
