Most people, at some point in their lives, encounter periods of difficulty, change and transition; when personal issues affect their work or relationships. Families are under a great deal of stress in today's world, more so today, than ever. Recognizing the need for additional support is a sign of strength and courage. Finding the right therapist, one that listens to your concerns, understands your challenges, and genuinely connects with you, can be difficult. My goal is to provide a warm, supportive environment, in which clients can develop coping strategies, problem solving skills, and confidence.
I am a licensed marriage and family therapist specializing in counseling children and adolescents, individuals, couples and families in a non-judgmental and compassionate manner. I collaborate with clients in coping with interpersonal, family conflict, parent-child conflict, depression, anxiety and panic disorders, mood disorders, trauma, life transitions.
I love working with children and adolescents, at their best they are amazing young people. I am there for them when they struggle with life's difficulties, personal challenges, and social anxiety. Younger children express themselves through the language of play. I have a special play therapy office just for them. While talking with teens, I use art or games.

Although I do not accept insurance directly, I work with clients with PPO insurance by providing them with a superbill to turn in to their insurance companies for reimbursement. This allows me to stay outside the contractual obligations that in-network providers must abide by. Ask us for specifics.

My work with children and adolescents with depression and anxiety, resulting from many pressures they face in their young lives, is gratifying. PTSD clients are the bravest of all my clients; they choose to delve into the depths of human despair, knowing that they need to relive, to some extent, their traumas to heal and move on with life. I also work with couples addressing relationship issues.

I often use Cognitive Behavioral Therapy in my work. CBT looks at how your thoughts affect your emotions and experiences. When working with children, I use play therapy in my specially designed play therapy room and CBT for children. The Gottman Method of Couples Therapy and Emotionally Focused Therapy are my preferred modalities for Couples and Relationship Therapy. CBT is great for teens.
