Through telehealth-, home-, and school-based services, I meet my clients where they are. Usually families come to me because they feel stuck. Their child has difficult emotions, acts out, and cannot seem to listen. Teachers and parents struggle to feel effective and worry about the child’s future. Everything feels complicated and out of control.

Resolving personal issues and the work of self-discovery can be a difficult but rewarding journey. Undertaking this challenge in a thoughtful way, with someone who acts as support and guide, helps illuminate the process. Relationship issues, romantic, familial or social, can be filled with confusion, anger, jealousy and the loss of self-worth. They can also be the seeds for better understanding who you are in the moment and who you really want to be.

I combine a unique and specialized form of Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT) based on Choice Theory with a Family Systems approach to treatment. I view maladaptive behavioral patterns as a result of inadequate or dysfunctional life choices. I assist my clients in recognizing these patterns of behavior and encourage them to draw realistic and practical solutions to the things that are hindering growth and happiness through the choices they make in life. I work collaboratively with my clients using a "here and now" problem-solving technique and develop a treatment plan that uses psychotherapy, exercise, nutrition, and social support networks.
