I come from the world of Narrative Post Modern Psychotherapy and have a practical, down to earth style with direct, candid conversation to keep the therapeutic relationship responsive to your needs. I work together with clients when designing short and long treatment plans, according to the diverse needs of individuals, couples and families. Since I am also a certified yoga therapist I am able to combine elements of advanced breath work with tools from Cognitive Behavioral therapy. Using this evidence based combination is often highly effective.

Life is quite challenging right now. Children and adolescents have been out of school for almost a year and that has been really difficult on families. My practice focuses on helping children find a sense of balance and purpose. Making a transition from home to school might also be a challenge. Through talk therapy, expressive arts, and mindfulness, I work with children and teens to build an emotional language. Learning to express oneself is a gift for life. I work closely with the family and often have a family session to work on routines and discipline.
