Session Formats: Individuals
Practice Description: I believe that every problem or life challenge offers an opportunity for growth and development. With the support of a positive and safe therapeutic relationship, you can find strength to address and overcome difficulties within your immediate family, in the workplace or in school, with a present/past partner, with the loss of a loved one, and begin to feel a deeper sense of fulfillment, find or maintain more satisfying relationships, or begin to heal from a loss or family crisis. With over 20 years experience as a psychotherapist, I have successfully helped adults, adolescents, and children develop more productive coping strategies, better communication skills, and a stronger sense of resilience when confronting relationship issues, depression, bereavement, divorce, anxiety, or post-traumatic stress disorder.

With expertise in schools and the child welfare field, one of my specialties is in treating (and helping parents with) a wide array of child and adolescent mental health issues, including depression, mood/anxiety disorders, learning differences and attention deficit, divorce, bereavement, attachment difficulties, trauma, and substance use.

My clinical approach is warm and interactive. I treat each adult, child, or adolescent with respect, sensitivity, and empathy, helping him or her to build upon strengths, identify and address obstacles, develop better insight, and to form more meaningful and positive relationships with others.
