You're troubled and don't know the way out. The strategies you may have tried--addictions, ruminating, blaming others or yourself, and secrecy--don't hold the answers and increase your suffering. I would be happy to talk with you about your situation and explore how therapy could help you find the way out. I understand about addiction, trauma, and the difficulty of feeling safe and learning to trust again. I can help you take charge of your life and solve problems so that you can cultivate happiness from within and create a better life for yourself.

I am a certified Child-Centered Play Therapist and many of my clients are between the ages of 3-9 years old! Some of the reasons children are referred are: low frustration tolerance, difficulty regulating behavior and/or emotions, anxious or depressed behavior, traumatic experiences, inflexibility, poor social skills and more. As an extension of the individual work I do with children, I sometimes teach parents to play therapeutically with their children using the Filial Family Therapy model. This skills-based approach is a powerful way to help children heal within the context of the parent-child relationship.

A good connection is the most important part of therapeutic work but it can be hard to find a therapist whom your child or teen enjoys meeting with. Throughout the years, I have consistently heard from parents and other professionals that kids really like coming to see me and seem to get a lot out of the relationship we establish as well as the work we do together. Using the creative arts therapies in addition to a variety of other therapeutic approaches, I work individually with children, teens, and young adults to overcome the obstacles that are getting in the way of their success in relationships, work, and school.

We each have a story, and that story matters. It is often our story that serves as the holding spot for some of our burdens and the very birthplace of our heart’s desires. I believe each client’s story is important and relevant and to be invited into another’s story of personal growth and healing is among the most profound and sacred of human experiences. As a Doctoral level Licensed Mental Health Counselor, I view the work I do as deeply personal and collaborative.

If you’re a teenager or a parent of a teenager, it goes without saying that your relationship with each other is far from perfect. You think, “I can’t trust them,” or “Why don’t they understand my side of this situation?” Maybe you’ve even mustered up the courage to talk with each other about the problem; but what you’d hoped would be a productive, heart-felt conversation resulted only in yelling, tears, or both. You need a space where you can express your thoughts and feelings with support from a caring professional who’s trained to treat mental health disorders as well as the day-to-day challenges faced by teens and families.

Relationships are blessings in our lives but often a source of deep pain. I see so many children, families, and couples distressed with life: unable to experience the blessings; and unable to find peace and satisfaction. In those situations, communication patterns are often marked with defensiveness, criticism, and sometimes even contempt. Sometimes families and couples have stopped talking altogether, unable to find the caring and understanding that once filled their relationships. My practice specializes in Couples/Family relationships and communication challenges - helping folks learn to listen, understand, and love.
