I offer both individual and couples/martial or family psychotherapy, and can also provide parenting consultation or counseling directly to children or adolescents.
For many, counseling offers the possibility of making a lasting and positive change in your life. Physical, emotional and environmental wellness all factor into one's mental health. Many issues can contribute to challenges with mental health including situational stressors such as loss, relationship conflicts, employment struggles and life transitions. In addition to these stressors, some people struggle with issues from childhood or unhealthy patterns that sabotage their relationships. A good therapist should believe in their clients potential for change, growth, and healing. I offer a supportive and non-judgmental environment that works in partnership with my clients.

I work with children and adults.
Sometimes life gets complicated. Confronting and discussing your feelings requires strength. In my experience, things that are never discussed are never resolved. The decision to ask for help with your concerns is a tremendous step forward. When choosing a counselor, look for someone you can easily sit across from. Then ask yourself, do you feel heard? I have listened to hundreds of stories. I respect each one as it reflects that person's journey through life. I feel privileged to play a part in that journey. I promise to do my best to help you find your way! Thank you.

You, or perhaps someone close to you, may have been struggling with a problem for some time and now have made the decision to seek professional assistance. This step comes neither easily nor comfortably. Feelings of apprehension, reluctance, and ambivalence are normal. Contrary to any self-talk that seeking help is a "sign of weakness", it is just the opposite. Engaging in therapeutic change is a bold and courageous act. I welcome hearing from you and will gladly discuss any matter of concern confidentially.

The connection between a therapist and their client is often a key aspect in the process of therapy. A therapist can have many credentials but if your clients do not connect with you, then an essential component of therapy is missing. My goal is to help people overcome issues getting in the way of living a happy and productive life. I believe in creating an atmosphere of encouragement, optimism and compassion in order to help people utilize their strengths to create change in their lives. I focus on helping people realize their strengths as well as the areas they would like to grow in and develop further.

Together, we can work effectively to navigate the life challenges that you and/or your child are experiencing.
​Have you been feeling "stuck?" Are you having difficulty coping with stress in your life due to relationships, parenting, employment or other life transitions? ​ Do you have concerns about your child 's behavioral or emotional functioning? Does your child have difficulty interacting with his/her peers? ​ If any of the above ring true, please know that you are not alone. Often, accepting that there is a problem, or that something in your life needs improvement, can be a difficult first step. It is not uncommon to encounter bumps in the road, though it's important to know that these challenging times CAN improve.

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.
