For the past 25 years I have helped men and women address developmental issues such as marriage, divorce, stepfamilies, loss and bereavement, anger management, assertiveness training, and parent/communication skill building.
My practice style is problem-solving and goal-oriented. I utilize a psychodynamic/cognitive behavioral treatment methodology and incorporate a systems approach when dealing with individual and family psychopathology. I design and develop treatment plans tailored to individual needs while establishing short and long-term goals. With all of my clients, I provide a warm, sensitive, and supportive environment so that we can work together in a problem-solving way and find solutions to interpersonal difficulties. My style tends to be positive, interactive, direct, and empowering.

As a psychologist, I help people explore their thoughts, feelings and relationships in a supportive environment. I enjoy collaborating with people to identify their strengths, while working to change behaviors and attitudes that are no longer effective. Often people come to therapy because they are not able to follow through with goals, even though they really want to change. It is my goal to help them understand the emotional obstacles that are keeping them "stuck," and options for making the changes they desire. I encourage clients to become more intentional in their choices and to take steps towards change.

I have been a psychotherapist for over 20 years helping children, teens, families and adults cope with a range of issues such as loss and grief, separation (with the focus on the child), divorce, the remarried family, anxiety, and depression.
My professional focus is on children,adolescents and families. An additional focus is on the individuaI adult. Today, children and teens face adult issues at earlier ages. These challenges often affect the child's educational, social and psychological well-being, which in turn impacts the family as a whole. One of my strengths is dispelling confusion, increasing self-awareness and self-esteem. This assists in facing everyday stresses and challenges, for the child as well as the parent or adult. My work promotes improved confidence, self-esteem and offers insight. These changes will improve mood, performance and relationships.

Life is complicated and it can get heavy and messy. It feels like things have been turned upside down. Some situations feel like a funhouse mirror and you want out of the funhouse but you don’t know how to find the exit. Life's tasks fall to the side. Your social life feels confusing. Hobbies feel meaningless. Self-care can be difficult. Friends and family offer their support, but their well-intentioned help doesn't always land the way you need it to. No one seems to understand what you’re going through. It's like a two-ton boulder is blocking your path. All you want to do is hide, but you know that's not who you are at your core.

Divorce Therapists

How does therapy for people affected by a divorce work?

Individuals may feel a number of emotions following a divorce, such as shock, guilt, grief, anger, and fear. Therapists offer a non-judgmental space for individuals to talk about what they’ve experienced and process their emotions. Therapists will help clients develop coping strategies. They can also help a client rebuild their sense of self and self-worth and talk about what a happier future might look like.

What’s the most common type of therapy following a divorce?

There are several types of therapy that may be useful for divorce, including cognitive behavioral, acceptance and commitment, solution-focused brief, and mindfulness-based therapies. Many therapy types are talk-therapy based, which is typically the most popular option for individuals dealing with divorce. Cognitive behavioral therapy is a widely-used talk therapy, however, there’s no specific therapy type that’s designed to help people with divorce, and different types will work depending on the person.

When should an individual seek help due to a divorce?

When the feelings of a divorced individual, or an individual going through the process of divorce, begin to disrupt healthy daily functioning, it may be a good time to look into therapy. If a person finds that they are not performing at work due to problems with anxiety or motivation, if they’re no longer seeing friends due to feelings of shame, or if they’re not properly taking care of themselves as a result of depression, speaking to a professional could help.

How do you encourage someone to go to therapy due to a divorce?

It’s helpful to express concern and love for the individual while framing therapy as a tool for improving their life. Sharing how the individual appears to be suffering, and what effects it has on them or on their children, should be done with compassion and empathy. It may be useful to devise a game plan—breaking the process down into parts, such as finding a therapist, making appointments, and looking into insurance coverage.
