Counseling Children, Families, & Adults

“Sometimes the questions are complicated and the answers are simple.”

Welcome.  I specialize in therapy for children & teens, young adults, adults, parents, and families who are challenged by:

  • Relational difficulties
  • Family conflict
  • Stage of life changes and adjustments (e.g. pregnancy, new child, grief & loss, career change, new move, marriage/divorce, leaving home, job loss)
  • Emotional difficulties (e.g. anxiety, depression, stress)
  • Behavioral difficulties (e.g. non-compliance, poor impulse control, attention difficulties like ADHD, tantrums)
  • Developmental concerns (including Autism, Asperger’s Syndrome, & PDD NOS)
  • Educational & academic concerns (including Learning Disabilities)
  • As well as therapy with therapists

I also specialize in the use of research-based and cutting-edge approaches like EMDR, art therapy, Mindfulness, and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT).

Since 2000, I have been using creative tools and evidence-based strategies to help people solve their problems; feel more connected to others; and feel more confident in themselves.

I bring my creativity, sensitivity, professionalism, curiosity, flexibility, and compassion to the therapeutic relationship in order to assess problem areas, identify strengths and resources, and help initiate change.  I believe that each individual’s journey to interpersonal and emotional health and satisfaction is a deeply personal process and I am committed to empowering others to move through this process in a manner that feels safe, productive, and meaningful.
