“You’ve always had the power my dear, you just had to learn to learn it for yourself”– The Wizard of Oz – Frank Baum". As a clinician, I believe that counseling is about providing youth, adults, and their families a safe, dedicated space to “Learn it for yourself”. A Licensed Independent Social Worker for 25 years, my passion for supporting youth and families through their personal journeys only continues to grow. Starting with the belief that the relationship is the basis of therapy, I will work with you, your child, and your family to develop strategies that allow you to overcome or manage your own unique situation.

Relationships are complicated, parenting is hard and life is messy. Understanding these truths has given me the desire to help people who are struggling. No matter how overwhelming or insignificant you think the problem is, developing a counseling relationship can be beneficial. I will journey with you as you develop goals, coping strategies and communication skills. I honor that families are diverse in composition and adapt treatment to the individual needs of each client. I use a systemic approach and have a wide array of experience with grief counseling, anxiety, depression, women's issues, spiritual concerns, infidelity, life transitions, play therapy, infertility, elder concerns and self-esteem issues.

I have many years of experience working with children, adolescents, adults with disabilities, and people from a wide variety of backgrounds. As a parent , I am familiar with the challenges of raising a child who has special needs. I believe that all therapy should be trauma informed, as we all do the best we can with what we know and what has worked for us in the past. My primary approaches to therapy are Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy.

The most important relationship you have is the one with yourself. We all have a story. Telling your story to an attuned listener can be transformational. Healing is a collaborative endeavor. As you share your experiences and I listen, you can become more connected to yourself. I work best with clients looking to address symptoms of trauma, depression, anxiety, stress management, relationship issues, and parenting problems. I believe digging deep into ourselves and learning how our early relationships in life impact our present coping strategies and feelings can help us move towards the future we want.

Over the years I have worked with clients of all backgrounds and issues. I believe you are the most important person who walks into my office. I believe your experience in therapy should be helpful and that you feel you are treated with the dignity and respect you deserve. Our building a relationship is important in this process. You are the leader in managing your treatment and my job is to listen and follow your lead. For many families, adoption was an option to building that family. As a parent of nine adopted children who are now adults, I appreciate the special challenges we have faced.

I have been working with individuals, couples and families for over 36 years. My experience both professionally and personally has taught me that all of us may experience problems coping with life's changes. I see therapy as helping people maximize their individual strengths while learning to problem solve their own issues. I believe the primary ingredients for therapy are respect, compassion and understanding. I feel I can offer this to anyone who comes to work with me.

Thinking and feeling in ways that allow you to engage your daily life, others, and your personal goals with energy, creativity, and effectiveness is the thrust of my approach and practice. Identifying patterns that restrict cognitive and behavioral functioning, preventing understanding and integration of personal and interpersonal dynamics is a key focus. Increasing self awareness and understanding through enhancing mindfulness, expanding thinking about self and others, and developing behavior patterns that mobilize personal strengths, assets, and motivation is the goal of the work.
