As individuals we may feel angry, sad, anxious or overly stressed in our daily lives. As couples, we may have problems in our relationship that lead to conflict with our spouse or partner. As parents, we may face various challenges (educational, emotional and behavioral) with our children , and need guidance in how to help them, and ourselves. These life circumstances can erode our sense of well-being and strain our relationships in all spheres of life. They stop us from functioning to the best of our capabilities.

For children whose behavior or preoccupations interfere in their social or academic success in school, play therapy is one way I work to uncover feelings and issues and help children ages 2 through 10 work through difficulties in a nonthreatening atmosphere.
I tailor therapy to meet your specific needs and expectations. You may be looking for help with relationships among family members or want to learn specific parenting techniques. You may be recovering from a traumatic life experience or uncomfortable and debilitating feelings. I can help you to increase self confidence and resolve these feelings by working together in a supportive, respectful way to explore issues. I also provide hypnotherapy as part of the psychotherapy process as needed.

I have experience working with adults, children , and adolescents.
Sometimes, life can begin to feel unmanageable, especially now during such uncertain times. I want to be a source of support for people seeking manageability. I believe that the most important pieces to being a therapist are empathy and the understanding that each and every client is unique and there is not a "cookie cutter" approach to treatment. Every client that I meet has different needs and different styles of treatment that work for them. I am a believer in the concept that the only expert in your life is you... and I am here to help you use that expertise to overcome whatever challenges you face.

Child Therapists

Do I need to attend therapy with my child?

Parents are an integral part of a child’s therapy, but the specifics of their involvement vary. If your child is young, you may attend most or all sessions; if your child is older, you may attend a few sessions or none; sometimes a therapist may ask you to have a session on your own. Whatever the arrangement, you should expect to work collaboratively with the therapist, your child, and your family members to take steps to help support your child.

How long are sessions with child therapists?

Children’s therapy sessions can last 30 minutes, 45 minutes, or 60 minutes. The length of the session may depend on your child’s age and the type of therapy practiced. You can discuss this with therapists you consult and the one you ultimately move forward with.

How do I get a child to agree to seek therapy?

The best approach is to have an open-ended conversation with your child about how they’re doing and what they might be struggling with. When you raise therapy, discuss the concept in an age-appropriate way, for example explaining that a therapist’s job is to help kids handle their hard or uncomfortable feelings. Frame therapy positively, as an opportunity to explore and build emotional skills—it’s an important tool in the toolbox to help kids feel their best.

How can I tell if a therapist is a good fit for my child?

A child needs to feel comfortable opening up about their thoughts and feelings, so if your child feels a sense of comfort, ease, and trust with their therapist, that’s a great sign. In addition, a therapist is a good fit for your child if the two can communicate well together; a clinician should be able to communicate clearly, effectively, and in an age-appropriate manner.
