Dysfunctional behavior starts as a functional behavior in a dysfunctional situation. I work with parents, families and children to create the tools needed to change dysfunctional behavior into functional behavior. In family situations, I believe the caregivers are the real therapists and I am there to give them the tools to bring peace and well-being to their family. There is no cookie cutter approach - I use what works for an individual whether that is home therapy and phone support or meeting at my office. I work with their schedule. I also offer intensives.

More Info About My Practice

I take VisaMastercard, checks and cash. I offer sliding scales and even monthly packages. Fees can range from $30-$60 an hour. Discounts for monthly packages, intensives and longer than an hour sessions.

Specific Issue(s) I'm Skilled at Helping With

I have more than 15 years of experience working with children and families struggling with early childhood trauma, especially those fost-adopted. I also work with transgender and gender expansive youth.

What I Love about Being a Psychotherapist

I love meeting new people and watching them grow and find peace and happiness.

Had a Negative Therapy Experience?

I do not have a cookie cutter approach, and love feedback. I modify therapy to what works for you. If you struggle getting your kids to therapy, I can come to you. I really work to find solutions and help you succeed in life and ask you how you are feeling about where the direction of therapy is going. My only goal is for you to feel better about yourself and your life.
