During last 15 years of professional training and experience, I have developed effective strategies which have helped families get through difficult times. My area of specialty is family therapy and I strive to help children and parents be successful. My therapeutic approach employs each family's unique qualities and strengths. With short term goals, I often use Cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT), which is structured and ensures the progress is easy to track and the time spent in therapy is productive.

I provide therapy through a combination of teletherapy & in-home support, as opposed to a traditional office setting. Sessions that take place in your home provide me more insight into what is truly going on. I understand it may not be easy sharing intimate thoughts with a new person, albeit a professional. I prioritize the building of a solid therapeutic relationship so that we have a strong foundation to work from. You can expect that I will offer opinions and suggestions from time to time, but that I will not tell you what to do. You can expect to be respected. Your emotional needs are important & deserve attention & time.

Psychotherapy is a practice of deep listening and understanding. I help people develop insight into their troubles and look into habitual patterns that may create obstacles to their life goals. Together, we identify these patterns, explore feelings, and put effective coping skills into practice. When working with children, my approach invites the family in. Parent coaching, which involves a neurobiological understanding, and psychodynamic insight are integral. Through play therapy I help children discover ways to communicate their experience. The purpose is to establish a connection that encourages growth and the sense that children have a positive impact in their world.

Effective therapy begins with the patient-therapist relationship. In my practice I create a safe space for patient-centered discussion surrounding life’s inevitable challenges. The foundation of my sessions is empathy, and from an empathic perspective I seek to guide clients toward finding their own inner strength in the face of difficulty, complex emotions, loss, and traumatic situations. Using a strengths-based approach, I can help foster understanding and resilience to move through negative experiences and self-defeating patterns into a place of empowerment.
