My specialties include anxiety, mood disorders, distressed
and families, relationship conflicts and dissatisfaction, parenting, and life stage transitions for pre-teens, adolescents, young and middle age adults.
Every person who chooses therapy does so for a unique combination of reasons, as my patients have revealed to me in twenty years of private practice. No one fits into simple categories, teens especially. Some are impacted by events long ago, others by recent setbacks, while most are triggered by a combination of influences known and unknown. Working with children and adolescents, I understand these manifold pressures are sometimes accompanied by resistance to change, thereby limiting the otherwise positive support offered by family and friends. That’s when I can help.
