To learn and grow, children require a tapestry of love, safety, and challenge. When the challenges youth face exceed the amount of resources available, therapy can be helpful. Private, goal oriented, engaging and fun activities can motivate youth to participate in a process they might otherwise avoid. In my practice, I help children address anger, depression, trauma, school related difficulties, divorce, and adjustment issues. With over 20 years of clinical expertise, I understand that children's therapy is most effective when the process is safe and interesting. In my practice I help youth and families embrace needed change by using their strengths to solve problems.

I am a Licensed Professional Counselor and Board Certified in EEG Biofeedback. I use cognitive behavioral and mindfulness approaches to help my clients have more control over their emotions and accomplish their therapeutic goals. However, you are the real expert on yourself and the most important part of the counseling process is that we establish a collaborative therapeutic relationship where you feel safe, not judged and truly understood. Research shows when this type of relationship is formed, therapy is more effective and you will feel more comfortable to engage in self reflection and more likely to experience positive change.

I've focused my practice on substance use issues and addictive problems in people lives. For years I worked with women in eating disorders treatment utilizing an addictions model. Later I focused on men, and substance use disorders. Problems can stem from using drugs as an unproductive coping skill to a deeper more physiologically based problem. Our first job together is to find what your specific problem looks like and then find a way forward that's suited to your needs. In addition I also offer services evaluating clients for Substance Use Disorders in Family Law and Criminal cases.

Sometimes we don’t understand the feelings coming up in us. Things happen that make it hard to trust ourselves or others, don’t they? Sometimes we wonder if we'll always feel lonely. We might ask why our relationships turn out the way they do, or why we try the same things over and over. When we’re waiting for the other shoe to drop or when life feels muddled or grey, we can wonder if this is all there is.

It allows us to begin healing from our past and transforms how we feel and act in our current relationships. It gives us support in times of crisis and stress, allowing us to become even more resilient in the future. And it frees us from habitual patterns that cause suffering in our lives.

I have seen time and time again the transformative impact of therapy on people of all ages. It can restore us to a place of peace and comfort or help us reach new levels of growth and fulfillment. It can help move us beyond those moments we feel stuck, overwhelmed, or alone. Likewise, it can help our child move past their self-doubt, difficulty managing their emotions, or sense of being lost in life. In either case, I want you to know you are not alone, nor were you meant to face the challenges of life without help. I will do everything I can to help you overcome adversity, achieve your goals, and live the life you deserve.

Things aren't working inside of you. You may have put together a fairly decent life but on the inside, you aren't enjoying it. You may be more and more uncomfortable in your body. You know the "right" things to do but they don't seem to get to the heart of the problem. You may even have tried therapy before without it truly helping. It may not have gone deep enough. You are probably experiencing early developmental trauma that was never properly addressed. Early developmental trauma patterns have a way of resurfacing in times of crisis and change.

Clients describe my therapeutic style as interactive, warm, and reassuring. It isn't easy to disclose personal challenges, but my clients have responded pretty quickly to my efforts to build rapport, explore issues, and experiment with solutions. Sometimes this work has been about learning new coping skills, and sometimes the work has been about digging deeply into the past to uproot old patterns that dampen the spirit. In my work with clients--whether individual or couples--I include a focus on integrating body awareness into the work of the heart and mind, so that more profound healing may take place.
