I am a practicing Gestalt therapist as well as a Registered Play therapist who works with adults and children that have experienced trauma and/or abuse, and present with symptoms of PDSD, anxiety, depression. When working with children I work closely with the parents or caregivers for best results. As a Gestalt therapist my focus is present focused and on the whole person (thoughts, feelings, body/movement.) Together we create an environment where the individual finds a deeper awareness about themselves that can increase their choices about how they interact with others and live their life.

I am a pre-licensed Master's level therapist. Starting your therapeutic journey can be both overwhelming and exciting. As an individual, it may be scary to open up, challenge yourself, and commit to change. As a parent, it can be hard to know when the right time is to begin therapy for your child. One thing I know to be true is that each and every person is unique, and is capable of growth, happiness and emotional wellness. I enjoy working with clients from late childhood through adulthood and love helping clients who are new to therapy understand the therapeutic process, create goals, and empower themselves to live their best life.

Are you concerned about how sad or anxious your child is? Are you getting frequent calls from school regarding your child's behavior? Are you having issues communicating with your teenager? As a parent, it is difficult to see your child hurting. You child may be acting out at home and at school. Your teenager may lash out at you, leaving you wondering what happened. Or it may be more serious concerns regarding your child's unhealthy eating patterns, hurting themselves, or even considering suicide. You may be frustrated that you've tried everything but it just hasn't worked.

My initial MSW specialization was direct practice work with children, youth and families.
As a licensed clinical social worker with more than 40 years experience of working with families and individuals of all ages, I find that the most effective approach is one that is strengths-based with a strong emphasis on helping clients solve the problems that bring them to me for therapy and also on helping them develop powerful resiliency characteristics that allow for future problem-solving, conflict resolution, goal-attainment, wellness, and life satisfaction. My ideal client is one who likes to learn. Trauma survivors, in particular, do well with this approach.
