As a forensic psychologist, I conduct diagnostic, criminal, parental and decisional competencies, sex offending, and family law evaluations.
Many people who seek mental health services struggle to find a clinician who is both personable and effective. The most important factor in therapeutic success is the therapeutic relationship. I am not the right fit for everyone, but finding the right professional is key. My work includes working with difficult to treat individuals as well as those who have experienced previous treatment failures. I am also a forensic psychologist and conduct evaluations of individuals involved with the legal system and often provide expert testimony. If you think I might be able to help you achieve your therapeutic goals, please contact me.

Additional areas of expertise include child, adolescent, and adult therapy; cognitive therapy; mindfulness; play therapy; family therapy ; marriage/couples counseling; child social skills and anxiety groups; effective parenting strategies; psycho-educational testing.
Reflecting back on 28 years of experience in practice as a licensed psychologist I am deeply appreciative of the trust placed in me by both current and former clients with whom I've worked, or who have referred their family or friends. I am told it is my easy-going, non-judgemental and comfortable style that helps my clients immediately sense my ability to connect with them and feel understood, supported and safe. While always professional, compassionate and sensitive, I believe my sense of humor also provides 'good medicine' and contributes to my ability to help others heal and grow.

My work is to help you clearly identify both the situation or problem you wish to change and the factors that led to this point. I can help you develop a healthy process for navigating life's transitions and for sustaining good relationships and alliances. I have decades of experience in this. But part of my helping my clients is awareness of my own process for growth and change. I have developed and tested a sure sense of what skills and support my clients need to flourish in relationships, family , school, and work. I also offer affordable in-person support and skills groups for parents and for adults on the spectrum.

As a Marriage and Family Therapist , I believe that all couples and individuals should take the time to nurture themselves and their relationships. When couples get stuck in the same interaction cycle, the pattern must be broken. I enjoy helping couples to decode their messages to each other, repair bonds, increase security, and their rebuild connection with healthy interaction patterns. Also, as a Certified Grief Counselor I also enjoy helping individuals walk through their grief journey. Grief is as unique as your fingerprint, and by talking through the many grief emotions we can help you process and take steps forward.

Through the use of play, I will be able to help your family deal with behavioral issues, trauma and family development.
I have been working with young students and their families for over 30 years. Throughout this time I have gained a great deal of insight into the significance the family plays in the development of each child. Today's families are often experiencing a great deal of stress. In many cases parents are caught between raising their children while caring for their parents. Communication is the essential glue that holds our families together. In my office I offer a warm and caring environment to foster family growth and healthy family dynamics.

Family Therapy

What do family therapists do?

A family therapist facilitates the process of understanding and improving how a family functions. The therapist will help family members develop empathy for one another. They’ll seek to understand existing patterns, misunderstandings, and conflicts that arise, in order to help the family arrive at a realistic, unified understanding and develop the coping skills they need to build stronger relationships.

How long does therapy for families take to work?

Therapy manifests differently in every family; a common time frame is 12 weekly sessions, but some families may see improvement after just a few weeks. Families should discuss their goals with the therapist at the beginning of the process and periodically revisit those goals to assess their progress together.

How can you encourage a family member to attend family therapy?

You can encourage family members to attend therapy by expressing with both love and concern the challenges you see and explaining how a therapist could help the family navigate those challenges together. An outside perspective can help everyone feel heard, get on the same page, and develop new skills. If family members are still hesitant, it may be helpful to emphasize that family therapy is short-term—it won’t last forever.

Is therapy for families effective?

Family therapy can significantly improve family dynamics and relationships. Research suggests that family therapy can help individuals understand their role in the family, communicate and solve problems together, reduce conflict and draw boundaries when necessary, and develop coping skills for stressors, major life changes, and mental or physical illnesses within the family.
