I believe life can get better. My style is active and emotionally connected, always respectful of the client's concerns, whether working with adults, children , or teens. My training helps me see the "big picture," but my skills include the flexibility to focus on concrete issues. Problems are quickly identified, because therapy does not have to last for years. Yet, many clients find value in examining life over the long term, within a warm, accepting therapeutic relationship, colored by directness, honesty, and humor.

I treat individual adults, adolescents and children as well as couples. Issues addressed in treatment include but are not limited to anxiety, depression, relationship problems, anger management and trauma in all of its manifestations. I serve a diverse clientele and am sensitive to differences of culture and sexual orientation. I find that underlying most problems is a profound difficulty in accepting and integrating one's various self-aspects, so this is a focus of the work

I have over 20 years experience working with children , adolescents, adults and the elderly incorporating a combination of CBT and mindful techniques in order to help navigate through all aspects of life. My role as therapist is to help facilitate in the journey, perhaps begining with a neuropsychological evaluation to help determine cognitive function, implement an individually based treatment plan to gain better understanding and control of the bumps in the road, or help gain a better understanding of life's issues.

As a therapist, I love working with children : learning about their families, their strengths, challenges, the problems which are worrying them and affecting their behavior. In our sessions we play and create things together, as play is the medium of communication for children in therapy, equivalent to adults' verbal engagement. Through talk and play, we develop an authentic emotional connection, in order to build a strong therapeutic relationship. Trust and collaboration are essential to the work of therapy for children as well as adults.

I work with adults, adolescents, couples, families and children .
I am committed to creating an atmosphere of trust, respect, and honesty. I listen attentively and believe that the relationship that we create together is the most important tool for our work together. My orientation is also psychodynamic, which means that I believe in the central role of the unconscious, past history and emotional forces. I apply this approach to many kinds of issues (depression, anxiety, addiction, difficulty in interpersonal relationships, general sense of dissatisfaction with life). My goal is to help you develop the awareness, insight, and psychological skills that you will be able to use later on your own.

I believe children and parents can have a happy time together. All children as they grow and all parents as they go through parenting encounter kinks in their development. I like to help children and adolescents learn to listen to and express their feelings directly and to help parents learn how to listen and communicate better with their children . With over 25 years of experience working individually with children and parents, in play group therapy and in parenting groups, I know how to use the strengths of each, child and parent, to promote better understanding of themselves and each other.

I often hear - My child /spouse is not acting right! or We just can't get along! By activating complementary therapeutic approaches and techniques, together we unearth behaviors that may prohibit change.
By becoming engaged and working with a solution-focused therapist, you will begin to uncover your child 's and/or your family's potential. You will begin to engage in a life that is worth celebrating, not merely tolerating. Throughout the growth cycles of children and adolescents, they often have many behavioral issues. This includes ADHD, unresolved stress, unsupported grief, addiction/recovery issues. Families of all types can have these ongoing struggles. Conflict resolution is paramount between family members. In addition, counseling the parents re: their own depression, anxiety or personality issues is paramount to completing the cycle of ongoing family distress.

I treat adults and couples, but I also specialize in seeing children and adolescents.
When seeing a new patient I am always mindful of the value of listening and communication. I am always mindful of ways of interpreting deeper understanding, but it begins with the building of a relationship between the two people in the room. By allowing this to develop I am able to assist in finding resolutions to symptoms and patterns that are emotionally painful and stubbornly have not gone away. My ideal client is one who is at least curious about making a commitment to change. I will attempt to do my part. I do use video and teletherapy for new and established patients.

Life is learning. We all have obstacles to smoothly incorporating information into the way we live our lives. Behaving reasonably is easier said than done. The process of learning to live our lives well requires commitment, humility and openness. These qualities are cultivated within a trusted relationship. There are no shortcuts to an open mind. having worked extensively with children and adults, in school, clinic, day treatment and hospital settings, I'm best suited to treating children , parents, relationship issues, addiction issues and issues of narcissistic personalities. I have experience with EMDR, an excellent tool.
