About

Sometimes my clients wonder is my child depressed? Does my child have anxiety? Am I doing a good job as a parent? My passion is working with children and families, helping them to relate better with one another or to cope with normal family issues in healthier ways. I believe all clients possess the potential to improve their lives. My goal is to offer support and strategies so that clients can decide for themselves what is appropriate for them. In addition, I strive to help adult clients gain perspective and understanding of their lives so they are empowered to make meaningful changes for themselves. I no longer accept insurance.
I offer a unique blend of different therapeutic techniques to engage children and adolescents and help them to be comfortable in sessions. Clients may participate in various play or art therapies to express themselves when traditional talk therapies may not work for them. I also offer a variety of techniques for adult clients.
When we are no longer able to change a situation, we are challenged to change ourselves. - Viktor Frankl
