My favorite clients to work with are children and teens ages 5 to 18 as well as young adults ages 19 - 35. I have an innate ability to connect and communicate with children and teens while at the same time being able to form a relationship with their parents to assist in the work they are doing in therapy. I work to create a safe, non-judgmental space that allows clients to be themselves. As a therapist, I show up authentically and establish a real connection using empathy, creativity, and humor.

Do you want relief from overwhelming thoughts and/or emotions? Do you have an inner critic that just won't leave you alone? Do you feel flooded by intrusive thoughts, emotions, memories and/or physical sensations, that may even seem to come out of nowhere? For many these experiences can result in feeling frustrated, fearful, hopeless and alone or coping in self-damaging ways. These are normal responses to trauma and overwhelming/painful experiences. Emotions and trauma can get stuck in the body, which is why talk therapy alone often isn’t enough.

A psychologist’s office ought to be–and I believe mine is–a safe place to express oneself, explore oneself, digest one’s experience and consider new and different modes of action. Digest experience? To me that means learning useful lessons that advance one’s life. Learning, however, in areas of emotion is different than learning arithmetic tables. Painful feelings often must be discharged before one can face how one contributed to the disaster, if one did, or who and what contributed to it. This can be a painful process at times, but a liberating and exciting one as well.
