Announcement icon I am offering telehealth through video and phone session during shelter in place.
I offer confidential psychotherapy to children, adolescents, and adults in a compassionate, safe and nonjudgmental environment. My approach to therapy is client-centered, collaborative, and strength-based. It is my belief that we are all unique and one approach does not fit all. I enjoy helping my clients in a broad range of issues, including anxiety, depression, trauma, grief and loss, co-dependency, relationship concerns, parenting, and adoption/foster-care issues. I consider it a privilege to come alongside and support individuals and families as they navigate life's many challenges and joys. Trained in EMDR.
As a parent myself, I have a respect and understanding of the complexities that children, adolescents, and parents face daily. When working with a wide range of clients, I incorporate modalities including cognitive behavioral therapy, play therapy, expressive arts, mindfulness, family systems, and attachment-based theories. I offer Saturday appointments.
Making the decision to reach out for support and guidance takes tremendous courage. It is my hope that you will feel safe and nurtured as you discover new insights about your past and your present, identify new and build upon current strengths, develop strategies for living your life, and experience strengthened connections with others and your self.
