I have 25 years experience providing therapy services to individuals suffering from a variety of problems including depression, anxiety, ADHD, communication problems, relationship problems and overwhelming stress.
I have worked with children and teens with behavioral and emotional health problems and those coping with the effects of sexual abuse and assault.
If you are a parent bringing your child in for therapy you are an integral part of the therapeutic process. I use a holistic approach to treatment, often consulting with teachers, guidance counselors, family physicians, and psychiatrists. When it is beneficial I observe clients at school and at home.
For new parents or those about to be new parents I provide consultations regarding infant attachment and bonding, and attachment parenting. I also work with new mom's experiencing postpartum depression.*in home visits are available as needed with established clients
I believe that given the proper tools and support, everyone has the ability to work through their most difficult challenges and turn the challenge into a success.
My greatest professional strengths are my ability to connect with clients and form strong therapeutic relationships, my compassion, and commitment to treatment. Helping parents & teens resolve conflict and strengthen their relationships. I have been very successful at engaging in treatment difficult to reach teens. I have been particularly successful working with individuals who may have resisted treatment in the past. I work with each person to help them identify and utilize their strengths and overcome weaknesses.
