**Currently taking new clients.**As a therapist, I focus on helping my clients recognize and develop the strengths they may not realize they already have. I am a child, adolescent, and family psychologist who has experience working with a variety of issues such as anxiety (including selective mutism), depression, anger, noncompliance, defiance, impulsive behavior, trauma, parenting, and family relationships. I respect the time and effort that families put into participating in therapy, and I support them in identifying and achieving realistic goals.
My background is in cognitive behavioral, family systems, and interpersonal orientations. I am certified in Trauma Focused Cognitive Behavior Therapy (TFCBT). My interventions are tailored for the concerns of my clients, and I often work with parents in addressing the needs of the family. My parenting work is primarily based on the Nurtured Heart Approach.
Clients have given me the feedback that they appreciate my sense of humor, patience, persistence, and open communication about my therapy interventions. Please contact me for a free phone consultation to determine if my therapy services will be a good match for you.
