My therapeutic interventions are research and experience based and include Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Dialectical Behavior Therapy, Resilience Training, and Play Therapy.
By creating a safe space that allows the client to identify, evaluate, and set goals, we will be able to work through difficult times and complex emotions. It is only human to feel but, turning those feelings into something that positively serves you is my priority. A therapist is someone who helps a person continue to build tools and coping skills needed for their own distinct situations. I focus on goal-oriented care that keeps you involved in creating your own journey of growth. ANY age range is welcome and I have much experience with adults, retirees, young adults & teens, children with IEP's or behavioral issues, and more.

I'm a proud DBT -C trained therapist which means well trained in behaviorism and my joy is working with kids.
When children experience anxiety, they often manage it by containing it. They learn early on that if they avoid the thing that makes them anxious it will" go away. " Overtime what starts out as manageable fear turns into this very big thing that begins to impact their life. They become confused, scared, and embarrassed about something that doesn't make sense to them at all. Teaching kids and parents to develop very specific ways to increase their confidence is life transforming. Parents who are proactive in getting help earlier for their child/adolescent have a tremendous advantage over those that wait.

What do you think of therapy? Does it intimidate you? In your thoughts, do you think the therapist is an out of touch, stodgy, judgmental person prying into sensitive topics or boring you with monotone lectures? Could therapy actually be fun? Or something you look forward to? What if therapy didn’t have to be scary or always serious but a time you set aside for yourself which you actually enjoy?

I provide psychotherapy for individuals, couples and adolescents. Clients describe me as being compassionate and non judgmental which helps to create a safe space to explore even the most difficult topics. I use several different modalities including mindfulness, positive psychology, and transpersonal theory. I believe in a mind body and spirit connection. Therapy is about supporting you in getting beneath the layers of habit, addiction, stress and obsessive thinking and help you recognize the essential self within rather than relying only on the mind, which is often the source of negativity.

Confidence; Empowerment; Optimism --- developing and strengthening these attributes creates the foundation for healthy coping behaviors, healthy relationships, and an overall healthy mind. When we feel a sense of self worth and self love we are more decisive, more willing to ask for what we need, and more willing to take social and personal risks that might lead to the best parts of our lives. Whether you are struggling to overcome anxious or depressed feelings, dissatisfying relationships with others or yourself, and/or find yourself in need of a safe space to sift through your fears, dreams, and questions - counseling is for you!
