"I work with kids, teens, and emerging adults. I enjoy collaborating with families to help them move through difficult challenges with intention and compassion. I frequently work with developmental and life-adjustment challenges. This includes executive functioning issues, like ADHD, moodiness and depression, or anxiety due to high academic pressure, life stress, or divorce. I also work extensively with technology-related issues: healthy-mind balance, boundary setting, as well as mindfulness practices for relaxation and expanding frustration tolerance."

"People are my passion! Is life for you or your child not going the way you'd like? In a supportive and confidential environment we can work together to identify the obstacles that are in the way of life being all that you want for yourself, your relationships, or your child. There are many approaches to psychotherapy, but research indicates that the patient-therapist relationship is a crucial factor. The beginning of therapy is creating that relationship and building trust. My focus is the present but I use the past that lives inside you to free you from its influence."

"I take a collaborative approach to therapy, helping clients connect to their own sense of resiliency by providing a nurturing relationship based on respect and acceptance. When taking the opportunity to reflect in a safe space, we open up to the rewarding possibility of connecting to ourselves and the world from a place of conscious choice, while also addressing attitudes and beliefs that may be inhibiting of growth and fulfillment. This can lead to greater satisfaction with ourselves and a sense of empowerment in our personal and professional lives."

"Utilizing EMDR & other approaches, I work with individuals who are experiencing symptoms of anxiety, depression, and trauma, as well as those going through life transitions looking for change. Because healing and growth occur interpersonally, therapy can be an impactful addition to one's life during difficult and challenging times. If you're feeling overwhelmed by emotions or stress, or feel like you're current life is being impacted by past events, there is absolutely hope out there. Many of the leading brain-body therapies now available are targeted for these types of experiences."

I have over 30 years experience treating children exposed to trauma, whether from family conflict, divorce, exposure to violence, bullying, alienation, accidental injury, or abuse. When children experience trauma, they can become detached from their bodies, numbed to emotion, and stuck in repetitive trauma memories.
