Announcement icon I am conducting HIPAA compliant telehealth sessions at this time. Sign up is easy and fast. I specialize in anxiety, depression and grief.
During these uncertain times, challenges for teens and parents are particularly acute. Social isolation, depression and anxiety are some of the challenges folks are facing, I work collaboratively and respectfully with clients, providing tools and coaching to help you manage challenges. Connection is important now. I enjoy working with teens and connect easily with them. I also work well with parents. I provide a warm, practical and comfortable practice where you can expect to be treated with respect, kindness, a sense of humor, compassion and over 25 years of experience with teens and families. Please contact me, I'm here to help.
I provide a safe environment, where you can feel comfortable and understood without judgment. My approach is based on individual needs, and is a compassionate, integrative model that incorporates Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Narrative Therapy, Solution Focused Therapy, Neuroplasticity, Mindfulness, and Relational Therapy. Let's create a connection.
Challenges truly can be opportunities, they offer information to help us grow and change. When people are in pain I know how important it is to have a compassionate and safe place to find ways to heal, to feel and to function better. I can help you find sustainable, sensible solutions that makes sense to you. Come in and talk, plan, work, practice and heal.
