The first step towards a successful therapy experience is finding the therapist who is right for you. I offer a free 30-minute phone consultation so that we can talk. That way, you can determine whether I would be a good match for your therapy needs and goals.
Sometimes things happen in life that are too overwhelming to deal with on your own. I can help you identify where you’re stuck and provide support while you develop the necessary skills to move forward.
Crisis, trauma, life transitions, struggling family members and illness can challenge even the healthiest individuals and families. I guide individuals and families in their search for solutions and assist them in creating a new sense of normalcy.
Many people also suffer from chronic conditions such as anxiety and depression that may weigh them down over time. These ongoing challenges can reach a level where they impact your quality of life and your most important relationships. I can help you get to the root of these problems and develop healthy coping strategies. I am trained in EMDR, play therapy, and talk therapy. I see children, adolescents, adults, and families.
Children & Adolescent Therapy
Children: Through play, children naturally process feelings and experiences that overwhelm them and exceed their level of understanding. I help children develop coping skills and learn to express their feelings.
Adolescents: Adolescence is a difficult time for everyone involved. When a teen begins acting out and/or refuses to communicate with their parents, talking to a trained professional can be helpful.

Adult, Parental & Family Therapy
There are events in our lives that take place, sometimes by our own choosing and sometimes not, where our day-to-day lives are going to be different. I can support you so that you get your bearings and develop the confidence you need to move forward with the many changes that you are facing. Reconnecting with who you are and getting in touch with your own unique voice can help you get started.
Often, when a child is struggling, it can impact the whole family. Sometimes it is helpful to get other family members involved to support the child in his or her treatment.
Often, parents have tried many things before they see me. I offer them techniques, strategies, and my parenting philosophy.
