Practice Description:
I am offering both telehealth video and in-person sessions.

People come to therapy looking for solutions to real-world problems. My therapeutic approach is interactive, strength-based and practical. Using empathy, humor, and an objective perspective, I will collaborate with you to develop an effective, down-to-earth approach to your current life challenges, as well as long-standing personal concerns that you may have. My job is to assist you in using your own self-knowledge to draw on your unique strengths and personal resources to respond to your challenges. We'll work together to put problems into a workable perspective and to create a realistic plan for addressing those problems.

Using this approach, I have successfully helped adults, college students and high school students with anxiety, depression, stress management, relationship issues, and career/academic concerns. I have expertise in ADHD in adolescents and adults, and can assist with addressing career challenges or academic planning to manage problems with executive functioning.
