Therapy is a chance to make a difference in your life, your child's life, or the
whole family to work on unresolved problems that keep coming up.
I often see individuals having issues
with anxiety and/or depression, stress management, relationship problems, self-esteem and problems balancing work/life.
Self discovery, finding coping skills, managing emotions, are just a few treatment goals that we would focus on.
For marriage and family therapy sessions, issues like conflict, communication breakdown, intimacy, power/control battles,
boundary setting, and dealing with outside pressure driving the family apart. Conflict resolution, family of origin/generational
work, and family system theory are powerful interventions.
Clients suffering from PTSD, phobias, personality disorders, I

Clients who have special needs including ADHD, autism, asperger and reactive attachment
disorder; I provide the developmentally appropriate levels of communication during therapy and try to address any family/environmental
It is very important to establish the relationship
of trust between client and therapist. My office is set up to provide a comfortable space, to calm nerves and allow deep felt
issues to be voiced and worked out within a confidential space. Depending on the client's needs sessions may include the individual,
the couple, the parent/child, or the whole family. Each person has unique needs.
