Everyone encounters times when they feel confused or overwhelmed by life. There may be particular circumstances that arise, repeated patterns of reaction that become unhelpful, or deeper levels of trauma that seek resolution and understanding. I work to help you with an in-depth examination of your life, your patterns of mind, your relationships with others, and your place in the larger world. This work is not always easy, and can in fact, be quite a challenge. I draw on neuroscience, traditional talk therapy, yoga, body movement, mindfulness and meditation to support you as you gain awareness and make choices about your life.

I specialize in therapy for children and adolescents who are struggling with emotional and behavioral difficulties at home or school. I offer a warm, accepting environment for children to learn about and express themselves, play, grow, and heal. Our work focuses on competencies and solutions rather than limitations and problems. Through a holistic perspective we work on presenting problems and overall social and emotional development to promote growth and healthy transitions to adulthood. I work collaboratively with parents/caregivers, teachers and school counselors to ensure all individuals in the child's life have the opportunity to address their concerns.

I work with a variety of clients from all walks of life. People attend counseling for many reasons, but most of them stem either from difficulties in relationship with others or with self and from some of the "givens" in life, including: death, isolation, lack of meaning, freedom, and responsibility. Those who seek counseling services want to feel happy, live more in line with how they view their world, and/or get along better in their significant relationships.

I work specifically with couples using emotionally focused therapy (EFT). Counselor strategies for couples and marital issues are much different than what a traditional counselor might utilize. I am a systemic couple’s counselor, this means that I see your relationship as my client. EFT is the most empirically validated treatment protocol based on 50 years of research to help couples reconnect and feel fulfilled. EFT can help by focusing on your attachment bond.

Making the choice to seek help in overcoming hardships in your life can be one of the scariest and one of the most rewarding actions a person can take in their life. If you find yourself here, you may be considering a journey towards long-lasting and significant change. In each stage of life, there are unique challenges that can impact your thoughts, emotions, behaviors, and physical health. Lack of support, encouragement, or sense of community make these challenges unbearable. My role is to utilize my training to provide unconditional positive regard and safety when overcoming barriers and discovering effective solutions, together.

You would do anything for your children, but far too often they seems out of control. Sometimes you secretly worry that you don't have the right tools to help them grow into stable, healthy and happy adults. You wish you could better understand their intense emotions. Whenever you try to reach them, it turns into the same old fight. It's frustrating to see them continue to act in the same way. You are ready to see the joy return to your child's eyes. You want to feel in control again.
