Treating adults, children and adolescents I guide individuals through the process of gaining insight as well as coping skills to make changes that will lead them closer to contentment, happiness, and to achieving their full potential. Being human means experiencing emotions! From birth our life experiences and how we deal with our emotions results in certain patterns of behavior and thinking which can often lead to discontentment, confusion, impulsivity, fear, anxiety, depression, lack of motivation, behavioral and learning issues, etc.
I have experience with young children, adolescents, and adults and provide a professional, down-to-earth, and empathic environment where individuals will feel heard and understood.
Additionally, my specialized knowledge of child development, caregiver-child attachment, relational difficulties and anxiety/depression related issues guides the therapeutic process for individuals across the lifespan. Together we will work to explore the root of the cause, identify goals, and plan an approach that will lead to real positive change.
