As a clinician I listen closely and carefully for the ideas, experiences, and patterns that shape your relationships to work, sex, romance, family, friends, and creativity. I strive to foster an environment that is safe, reliable, and non-judgmental, and where a range of thoughts and feelings-from the most uncomfortable to those that are pleasurable-can be expressed. I work with individuals of diverse backgrounds and identifications. I have years of experience working with adults, adolescents, and children in talk and play therapies.

People often seek therapy when feeling stuck: painfully alienated from what they desire, torn between conflicting impulses, and stuck with a version of themselves they find confusing and dissatisfying. Through careful listening and exploration, our work will help to illuminate how old wounds and ways of surviving have restricted your ability to feel, work, love, and even play freely. Moments of vulnerability in therapy can be opportunities to shut down, or they can be opportunities for introspection and transformation – I pay close attention to each patient’s needs, wishes, and fears to help steer you towards the latter outcome.

I believe in the power of play and creativity as tools in psychotherapy, and I use these mediums to help patients access their internal world.
Feeling lost, confused, or misunderstood is a natural experience. However, when we are faced with chronic feelings of discomfort, our lives and relationships can become severely disrupted. Psychotherapy provides an opportunity to identify, express, and process difficult thoughts and emotions. As your therapist, I will provide you with a warm, safe space to explore your inner world and enhance your self-understanding. With this insight, you can reclaim power over your emotions and behavior to make choices that are more aligned with your personal goals.

I see adults experiencing anxiety, depression and relationship difficulties. I listen deeply. I help adults become more curious about their thoughts and feelings and question long-held assumptions that no longer apply. I help them tap into their bodies' wisdom. We work on removing roadblocks to free up energy in the essential areas of love, work and play . I help children experiencing difficulty at home, in school, and with peers. Through play and talk, I help them resume the important tasks of childhood. I have a specialty niche in infants and young children. Attachment issues, trauma, divorce and loss are additional areas of expertise.

Does your child have frequent tantrums? Is he willful and defiant, refusing to listen? Maybe she has problems in school and you suspect ADHD. The great news is, I have seen tremendous improvement in these issues with just 3-5 months of Child-Centered Play Therapy together with Parenting Counseling! Play Therapy puts your child in the driver's seat, giving him such an exhilarating sense of control over his own life, that he doesn't mind being told what to do so much outside of the session. In addition it allows him to process all of his overwhelming feelings.

Congratulations on taking this step in seeking help and support for yourself or your family. I work with children and adolescents, families, men, and women. My 20-plus years of clinical work with children and families is built on an attachment-oriented foundation and is informed by my personal experience as an adoptive parent and training in relevant play and family therapies. Regardless of a child’s emotional/behavioral presentation or attachment (RAD) history, I view parents as partners in their child’s therapeutic process and support and guide them, in parent sessions and/or in family sessions with their child.

From medication management and psychological testing, to play groups designed to accommodate children with ADHD and behavioral or learning disabilities, ADHD.
ADHD has become a widely recognized challenge that can be treated medically as well as non-medically. Depending on the child or adult and their specific circumstances and needs, we can help. To assess and diagnose, we have experienced psychiatrists and psychologists on staff. Once diagnosed, if medication is warranted as a part of the treatment plan, the psychiatrist would continue in his/her role as the prescribing physician. He/she would communicate with the other clinicians in the center who, as part of the treatment team, would have non-medical roles in the effective treatment of ADHD and its associated conditions.

Although therapy may be difficult at first, I know from experience that it is well worth the effort.
