As a psychotherapist in private practice, I specialize in helping families and adults who are struggling through difficult life situations. Assisting clients in realizing their personal strengths is a goal for my work, all of which is highly individualized. I believe that familial and developmental experiences create filters in each of us. These are often unconscious yet powerful. Our emotions get triggered by our past circumstances and can overpower our rational selves, and in turn, negatively affect our ability to live successful lives. Being more mindful of our behavioral patterns and actions can be powerful forces for change.

I provide a safe, understanding presence for personal exploration. With children, I use games, role plays, sand tray therapy. With adults and adolescents, I use a solution-focused cognitive and behavioral approach including mindfulness, recognition of emotional triggers, and guided imagery. I emphasize the positive and am flexible in my approach.

My thirty years of teaching and administrative experience have given me a solid understanding of learning issues and individualized educational programs (IEPs). For children with learning issues, I can help parents become advocates for their child in educational settings. My parenting workshops focus on tips for becoming an Emotion Coach.
