I have over 19 years of experience working as a Master level counselor and have worked with children , teens, adults, geriatrics, couples and families.
What is the goal of life? It is to be happy and to build a life worth living. We become happy when we are able to develop true, authentic life, self-connected with others, and undefeated by our circumstances. When we work hard to reach our goals, we feel a sense of accomplishment and pride. In turn, this spurs a stronger desire and commitment to continue to make progress and deepen our personal mission in life. I believe the purpose of counseling is to support and encourage this lifelong journey.

In psychotherapy much depends upon the rapport. You must feel comfortable with the therapist and hopeful about the therapy. When you feel this way, therapy is more likely to be helpful to you. I have been practicing clinical psychology since 1977. I focus on the interplay between our internal world and our relations with others. Not restricted to one approach, I integrate a range of useful change strategies including interpersonal and cognitive-behavioral. Psychotherapy is both an educational process and an interpersonal process. Each person’s experience is unique. I have special interest in eating disorders, relationship disturbances, depression, and stress.

It is my privilege to work with couples, individuals, and those in nontraditional relationships to help navigate life's challenges.

I have created a play therapy room where children can come to work through what is upsetting them.
Life is not easy. Unexpected problems arise that you are unprepared to deal with. Whether your child is struggling in school, depressed, angry, or perhaps the whole family is in crisis. I have many years experience with children and families in a variety of settings (preschools, schools, and community mental health agencies). Together we can sort out the challenges and uncover the talents that will help your family function better. It can be hard to take that first step and try therapy, but it is time. Things can be better and I am ready to work with you if you are ready to try.

As a Clinical Social Worker and Certified Child Life Specialist, I strive to ensure that youth, adults, and families have the internal and external resources necessary to adapt to life's challenges.
Resilience: “The capacity of a person to maintain their core purpose and integrity in the face of dramatically changed circumstances.” Resilience, at its core, relates to the process of adapting to challenging circumstances. Adaptation does not necessarily mean letting go of past experiences, challenges, or losses, but rather the act of learning to live with pain in a manner that allows you to survive. In seeking support, you are doing just that. Welcome to Resilience Counseling, PLLC.

I have worked with kids in a multitude of settings in different cities across the country, and have seen the resiliency that each child has within themselves.
When we feel that we belong to the world, then we can move through it with confidence and courage, open to growth and happiness. There are plenty of things to worry about as a kid, and today’s culture does not necessarily make it easier. But children do not have to go at it alone! Feelings of despair, loneliness, and inauthenticity are completely normal for many kids and young adults. No one lives alone with these feelings, even though it may feel this way. Through a genuine counseling relationship, kids can begin to believe much deeper in their strengths than in their shortcomings.

I work with individuals as well as families with or without children . I enjoy working with clients that desire a change (internal, external, maybe unknown) and want to live a more desired, pleasurable life. In therapy we will identify unmet needs and assess what change is truly desired. Before change can happen, we must identify barriers for change as well as strategies to promote and maintain that change.

I am a Licensed Mental Health Counselor with 20 years experience working with youth and families. I believe that relationships can be repaired. My counseling focuses on re-establishing a sense of hope, safety, trust, and security. I enjoy working with parents since I know from experience how parenting can be both joyous and despairing, often at the same moment. Becoming a parent forces you to go through enormous, and sometimes, unexpected changes as a person, and that as your child is growing, so will you and your family, in ways that may be unexpected and very difficult at times.
