Although I work with a variety of clients, my primary speciality is children who struggle with behavioral and/or emotional problems, using playful and positive means to help them with anger management, expression of feelings, and relationships with friends and family. I always welcome the opportunity to work with parents, families and couples under stress. Let's face it: aren't we all? No situation is beyond hope; my clients leave our sessions with real insight and tools with which to move beyond their troubling issues.

My primary focus is rooted in the belief that identifying strengths and resiliencies are key components to working effectively in the therapeutic format. We will stay focused on using these abilities to inform decision making while also exploring the impact of personal challenges. I like to use curiosity, intuition and empathic insight to continually deepen our therapeutic connection, and to offer homework to keep the work alive during the week. Working in this dynamic style ideally creates an increased sense of Self, motivation for change, and a reduction of current problematic symptoms.

Life is full of challenges when raising children. I can help you to untangle and heal some of the obstacles that may be getting in the way of a more conflict free and fulfilling family life. It takes a village to raise a child, and I hope I can be of help to your family.

People seek therapy for different reasons. Some are hoping for relief from a specific problem such as depression, anxiety or relationship difficulties. Others may have a general sense of not feeling as alive as they imagine they could. They would like help understanding this feeling and are seeking a richer, deeper, more fulfilling life. In psychotherapy we engage in a process of self discovery in which people learn about themselves and about the ways they have been blocked from feeling fully in touch with themselves and others in their lives.
