I work with individuals, couples and families to understand and deal more effectively with the difficult challenges they face in life. We are all vulnerable to having our "emotional buttons" pushed, particularly by overwhelming life situations. Once triggered, we may fall back on familiar but less helpful ways of dealing with our pain. My role is to help you: 1) identify your key needs and feelings; 2) identify and heal counterproductive ways you interpret and cope with painful experiences, and, 3) develop patterns that will enable you to get your core emotional needs met - even in the most difficult circumstances.

Although I specialize in treating children and adolescents, much of my approach extends to supporting adults in their lives as well. Subsequently, I also work with adults who may be struggling with anxiety, depression, post-traumatic stress-related difficulties, or general life stressors and adjustments.

When working with children or adolescents, it is often important to work collaboratively with schools, medical practitioners, and parents - particularly if there are developmental or learning challenges. I have specialization in school and clinical psychology that supports a comprehensive approach to addressing the child or adolescent's needs.
