I work closely with adolescent , college-aged, and adult clients struggling with anxiety, depression, and life transitions to help resolve the distress they are experiencing. I collaborate with my clients to develop solution-focused approaches to help them feel less stuck, more present, and more in control of their daily experiences. I am trained in evidence-based Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) which targets how our thoughts impact our emotions and behaviors, and I integrate insight-oriented therapies that help clients hit refresh and feel re-engaged while navigating school, work, relationships, and other important moments.

I have taught therapist-in-training at two universities for the past decade, run a training program for clinicians, and have authored numerous articles and four books: on trauma, child/ adolescent treatment, group therapy, and working with boys.
Never thought you'd find yourself looking for a therapist, or had a disappointing therapy experience before? Much of the success of treatment depends on finding someone whom you can trust, who is as invested in seeing you make progress as you are. I have a solid track record working with children, adolescents, adults and families to create change in their lives...even when situations feel hopeless.

Over 30 years of experience, combined with specialized training in adolescent and couples issues, provides me with a seasoned perspective which promotes growth and development.
Most adults enter psychotherapy because they are dissatisfied with certain aspects of their lives or certain aspects of their selves. Most want to change but don't know how. I find that as I provide an accepting, non-judgemental attitude to the understanding of their problems, individuals are able to uncover emotional blocks, untangle emotional confusions, and work toward developing more successful ways of being in their worlds.

I also specialize in play therapy, child, adolescent , and parent education for the pat 25 years.
"I believe that compassion for oneself is the key to feeling better. When we can stop idealizing and stop trying to be what we're not, we can learn to have compassion and acceptance of who we really are. Accepting our human condition with its limitations, leads to self-knowledge, which leads to growth and ultimately to comfort within ourselves.

Teen Therapists

What does therapy for teenagers look like?

When a therapist works with a teenager, the pair will talk about what the teen is struggling with and explore solutions, which may involve interpersonal skills, coping strategies, medication, or lifestyle changes related to sleep, diet, and exercise. Different therapists employ different modalities, but most involve a combination of conversation and skill building.

How long does therapy for teenagers generally take to work?

There’s variability in teenagers’ experiences and challenges; some may begin to improve from therapy within a few weeks while others may take several months or longer. Teens can discuss their progress with their therapist periodically to assess how they’re improving and any changes to the treatment plan that could potentially accelerate that progress.

How do you encourage a teenager to go to therapy?

It’s helpful to express your concern and love while framing therapy as an opportunity to explore a tool that could help improve their life; just like they practice baseball or dance, now they can practice their emotional skills. Give your teen control over the process where you can—maybe by weighing in on choice of therapist and signaling that therapy involves confidentiality, so a parent need not know all that is discussed in sessions.

How do you prepare teens for therapy?

You can prepare your teenager for therapy by describing what the process will look like and setting expectations for timeline, if requested. You can explain that the first session may begin with an assessment phase, that they can describe their experiences but that the therapist will ask questions too, and that it may take time to feel comfortable opening up. Ask how they’re feeling about the process and answer any questions calmly and supportively.
