We focus on play/sand therapy, child development, family therapy, CBT, Psychopathology, military, parenting, suicide, teens, infant to 18-years and family adult counseling.
As a parent/caregiver, a certain level of stress is normal, however when your stress level becomes unmanageable, it is time to seek professional support. I help infants and their parents; individuals and their families repair the effects of trauma and stress in their lives. I believe the earlier we address emotional, developmental, relational, social and individual (behavior) functioning, the better we can assist the family or individual to make life-long changes.

My role as a therapist is not about helping others. It is about giving guidance and focusing on self-empowerment to my clients so they can have the tools to assist themselves. Prior to private practice, I worked at treatment facilities for both substance abuse and eating disorders, worked with victims of crimes (domestic violence and sexual abuse), and a suicide hotline.

From my professional experience (over 30 years) as professor, author, clinician in both private practice, and mental health and addiction programs, I do not believe there is really an "ideal client". Some people behave more like visitors (not interested in change), others as complainers (who want others or anything except themselves to change) and then there are those clients who are willing customers for change regardless of the dominant problem narrative or presenting problem. I'm genuinely curious, collaborative, relational, respectful, empathic, non-judgmental and invite clients to move toward the possibility of being interested in possible transformational or even small changes.

Is anxiety, depression, or trauma holding you back from being your true self? Do you feel stuck in managing difficult life transitions? Now, every little thing becomes super overwhelming. Those negative experiences reopen old wounds and cause new ones. You tried burying your pain hoping it would go away. You feel lonely and tormented. You feel exhausted, stressed, and angry all the time. You wonder how much more you can take. You are unsure of who or where to turn for help. In the midst of this painful journey, you do not have to go through it alone.

Stories. We all have them - stories that we believe about our abilities, our partners, and our past. These stories shape what we unconsciously decide that we are capable of or deserving of. When we experience trauma, we develop unhealthy coping behaviors that support the stories. We think that these behaviors are a part of our personality, but they are not; they are simply survival strategies. And the unhealthy strategies that helped us to survive trauma earlier in life affect our ability to form healthy adult relationships and to meet our goals. But what if the stories are wrong? How do we find our true stories?

It is courageous to ask for help. Life is hard at times. In a safe warm non judgmental environment, I want you to relax and let your journey unfold. Let me provide the space so that you may find your way. It is ok to have pain. Einstein asserted that "you cannot solve a problem in the same condition it was created" meaning we need an outside person to gain perspective, have insight, and create change. My approach is best described as gently truthful and straightforward. I believe in you and want to work with you to create the life you deserve to have.

Although I work with children and adolescents individually, working with them alone is not sufficient. As a rule, I strive to incorporate parents in the process as much as possible. I also strongly believe in involving teachers, pediatricians, and other professionals in order to provide comprehensive treatment. As a parent myself, I am very aware of what it is like for me to entrust my childrens' care into the hands of another. For me, working with children is thus a very privileged thing. To be successful, I first start with earning the trust and respect of both parent and child.
