I use play therapy techniques when working with children .
I have been working 15+ years with young children (ages 3-10), preteens, teens, as well as a families and adults. My areas of expertise include working with youth and adults with anxiety, depression, low self-esteem, ADHD, poor coping skills, behavioral and academic difficulties, as well as life transitions, family conflicts and parenting challenges. My root philosophy is cognitive-behaviorally based (our thoughts & behaviors are connected and affect each other). I use an eclectic approach using tools from a wide range of theories. I'm committed to treating the whole person and not just a diagnosis or label.

I have a lot of experience working with children and families.
I currently have a waitlist for minors but do have limited daytime availability for adults. To get started, complete our screening form found on our website alliancementalhealth.org. In my practice, I have worked with a wide range of clients, from adults to children , including couples and families. I'm trained in a wide range of therapeutic techniques and styles, but feel most at home using a combination of client-centered and cognitive-behavioral therapy. I believe that at its core, therapy is forming a positive relationship, and then using that relationship to motivate and reinforce healing and change.

OCT 2022: My practice is currently FULL and I'm unable to take new clients at this time. I work with children (ages 10 and up), teens, young adults, and families. I especially enjoy helping young adults who feel stuck or overwhelmed in their day-to-day life despite being hardworking and empathetic. Often, my clients are looking to be heard, validated, and reminded that they are the experts on themselves and their experiences have shaped who they are today. If you’re feeling down, stressed or not quite like yourself, please know that change is possible.

I enjoy working with children (ages 5 and up), teens, young adults, and families that are experiencing a variety of life's struggles. Feeling isolated, down, overwhelmed, anxious, and stuck in negative patterns in our relationships are commonplace in these times. Many people are dealing with the impact of traumatic events that have occurred in their lives. We can work collaboratively to deal with the emotional challenges and obstacles that are causing distress and work towards restoring balance and happiness in your life.

There is no greater feeling than seeing your child succeed and, perhaps, nothing more disparaging than seeing your child struggle.
I am a licensed Marriage and Family Therapist in Portsmouth, New Hampshire. I help children , parents, and couples overcome obstacles, improve relationships, and better their lives. Starting a family can be one of the most exciting and fulfilling experiences, but when things do not go according to plan, this can be one of the biggest struggles for parents and children . I help families uncover the issues that contribute to the problem and find solutions to help you obtain the vision you always wanted for your child and your family.

Are you or someone you know struggling with managing emotions-anxiety or depression, are there sexual concerns for yourself or in your relationship, or are you struggling with adjustments in your life, maybe starting a family or parenting children who struggle with behaviors? If so I would love to hear from you in order to see if I am a good fit to help. I love working with all types of family systems, currently with couples or adult individuals. I believe that part of moving forward towards change is supporting my clients in finding the solutions within themselves.

My experience has been mainly with children and adolescents.
For me, therapy is a safe place to truly explore the areas of our lives that impact our daily interactions with ourselves and those around us. Sometimes, when we go somewhere new we need a guide, someone who can help us climb the steep mountains safely and maneuver the hard terrain that can come. My goal as your therapist is to be that guide and help you navigate through the discoveries made throughout the process. Therapy can be emotionally challenging and can bring about vulnerability that is uncomfortable at times but what I hope to create for you is a place where you know your vulnerability will be protected and safe.

The pandemic is leaving its mark on all of us, in many different ways. For some of us, it's revealed our helpful and unhelpful patterns of coping with stress, loneliness, depression, grief or anxiety. For others, extended time at home has shown us the health of our relationships with the people we live with, for better or worse. Some of us have lost loved ones, and are processing grief while facing our own mortality in a new way. Many of us may feel a fresh desire to find meaning, purpose, joy and contentment. Whatever has prompted you to explore counseling, I'm glad you're here.

What type of Dover mental health professional is right for me?
While most types of therapy have a lot in common, they also fall into clusters that share core features, such as cognitive therapies or psychodynamic approaches. It is important to seek someone who practices evidence-based therapy, meaning one or more forms of treatment that have been scientifically evaluated and tested, and demonstrate consistent improvement for a majority of patients.

If you are unsure about choosing the right therapist, it might be useful to first learn more about therapy types and modalities.
How to find a therapist in Dover?
When looking to find a therapist, it is certainly important to consider training and credentials. Studies also indicate that the therapeutic alliance, or the relationship the client develops with the therapist, is an important factor in their ability to work together to achieve the client’s goals.

What method of therapy is right for me?
When it comes to treatment methods, there's no 'right way.’ Each method of therapy can be beneficial for a variety of issues. Finding a psychologist or therapist who is a good fit for you is the most important step to discovering what type of therapy, or combination of therapeutic approaches, will meet your individual needs. Learn what to expect from different types of therapy and how they work.

How to use my insurance?
Understanding cost and insurance coverage is an important concern for many people. With some basic research and conversations with prospective therapists, you should be able to have a good understanding of the best way to afford therapy.
