Mood changes, life crises, relationship challenges, loss: finding a way to turn your life around will happen in a therapy that is warm, empathic and secure. I use mindfulness of the body, access to deep emotions and direct problem solving strategies to help you feel better quickly. My strengths-based, positive-focused approach helps you appreciate what is already working well in your life, and take action on what you want to improve. "Nothing that feels bad is ever the last step" is a quote that informs my practice.
I work with adults, children and teens. My empathic and strengths-based approach works for treating anxiety, depression, adjustment issues, relationship issues and loss. I also have a specialization in working with the challenges of being a mother.
For adults, my approach includes attention to mindfulness, a deep understanding of current and root dynamics and effective practical solutions. For clients for whom spirituality is important, I incorporate your spiritual or religious needs in the emotional change work. I am a trained practitioner of psychodynamic psychotherapy and Accelerated Experiential Dynamic Psychotherapy: http://www.aedpinstitute.com. I offer 15 minute consultations with no charge to help you determine if we are a match for psychotherapy.
For children and adolescents, I offer play therapy, talk therapy and social skills, which in a creative, fun and engaging manner allow children and teens to express their feelings in a safe environment and learn the essential skills for relating to their peers. I also provide psychological and psychoeducational evaluations to diagnosis unclear academic, social or emotional issues.
