Welcome! I'd ask how you are but if everything was great, you would not be browsing this site!

I am a clinical psychologist who specializes in helping children, adolescents, and their families. I have extensive experience working with preschoolers, school-aged children, and adolescents with social, emotional, behavioral, and educational challenges. My areas of expertise include depression, anxiety, social difficulties, learning disorders, divorce, and loss. Kids are sometimes sad when they sit by themselves at lunch. Others may be frustrated when they are not picked for games. Children may not have the social language skills, impulse control, social judgment, and/or abilities to develop and maintain friendships. I help children and adolescents develop these skills in individual and group therapy.

I do believe each person and family has unique resources to activate healing processes. Brief Therapy requires a highly collaborative approach between therapist and clients, and focuses on practical solutions and clear communication. Brief Therapy offers a maximum of 10 sessions but usually don't need that many to promote change in the problem that is presented. I work with individuals, couples and families with a variety of problems: marital conflict and affairs, depression and anxiety, children and adolescent problems, addiction, eating disorders, stress and work related problems. I also provide online-therapy services.

Sometimes the circumstances that bring someone into therapy feel monumental or even shameful. Other times they might seem hard to pinpoint or articulate. The reasons people seek therapy are countless, and they all matter. They affect our thoughts and our relationships, often quite deeply, so they are indeed worthy of attention. My purpose as a therapist is to develop a relationship and a context that feels restorative and safe through which my patients and I can grapple with any and all concerns imaginable. Through intimate conversation and our shared experience emerge feelings, buried fears, and the previously unknowable.

Congratulations on taking this important step toward improving your life. I believe that in order to grow and make changes in their life, people need validation, support & practical skills. I strive to provide empathic, supportive & productive therapeutic relationships so you can feel safe while moving toward your goals. Each person's situation is unique and my therapy approach is designed to meet your individual needs. Many of my clients suffer from problems of emotional regulation (borderline personality, PTSD, depression, anxiety & bipolar) most effectively addressed by dialectical behavior therapy. However, no matter the approach, it is the healing energy created when two people sit together and mindfully focus on connection and healing that leads to healing and growth. Together we make that happen.
