It is my belief that therapy works best when it is a collaborative partnership, and my goal is to provide a supportive and caring environment that enables you or your child to manage symptoms of anxiety more effectively. I have extensive expertise in the treatment of anxiety disorders, obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD), and related concerns. This includes social anxiety disorder, panic disorder, specific phobias, selective mutism, trichotillomania, and excoriation (skin picking) disorder.

Life is sometimes a difficult process especially when a partner or child needs, but doesn't want therapy. It can become very painful for yourself or the loved one whose behavior is affecting the whole family. You may even be combing these ads trying to sort out where to start. Sometimes you need someone who knows how to allow a person to open up in their own time. Someone who can work with them through their fears. I have experience in: Child Therapy, Addressing resistance, Mandated clients and LGBTQ concerns. I utilize a variety of techniques toward this aim including EMDR and Play (Sandtray) therapy.

In working with children , I do lots of parent-coaching, and I enjoy enabling parents to understand what stands in the way of them seeing their children more clearly.
My favorite clients are those who are on a path toward greater self awareness. I love working with couples seeking to deepen their intimate connection & relationship; I love working with parents who are seeking to create a more healthy and heart centered relationship with their children . I feel excited to work with families who are seeking to change the way they relate to one another and who want to alter the way they balance love, work & play. Within each session I draw on principles of Non-Violent Communication, Internal Family Systems, Play Therapy, Attachment Parenting and Mind-Body-Spirit Approaches.

My areas of expertise are working with children , adolescents, adults, and families with problems such as academic and behavioral issues, relationship issues, self-injury, suicidal thoughts and tendencies, and coping with trauma.
We as people endure a lot of pain, carrying this pain with us can become heavy, so heavy that it bleeds out onto our daily lives, our routines, onto our relationships, and onto the many things we love and desire to keep safe. Being willing to be present and accept that organizing these life problems will only aid us to reduce the persistent chaos and overwhelming feelings. This is where we start. I am flawed, I am human, and I have done the hard work, and continue to do the hard work on a daily basis. I am also committed to develop a strategic plan alongside you in your journey to building you.

I feel the ideal client is anyone who is seeking help. With that in mind, we need to remember that accepting help also means being open to change. Treatment needs to be about accepting that the way we have been doing things hasn't been working.

I help couples communicate effectively so that both partners can listen without getting defensive, see each other's point of view and feel appreciated. You’re probably wondering whatever happened to the person you fell in love with. Where is that person who understood your every need? Do you even remember the last time your partner tried to understand your point of view? You would even settle for a little empathy. And why does every little thing have to turn into an argument? You’ve tried everything you can think of to make your relationship work.
