I believe in treating all individuals with acceptance, respect and dignity. I strive to help others accept themselves and their situations, while fostering growth. I teach others how to care for themselves and provide tools for reducing stress. Most people possess the power and insight to solve their own problems, and I enjoy helping others tap into that ability. Healthy, happy relationships are the key to living a life of fulfillment, and I use this ideal as a guiding force in my practice Additionally, I am trained in EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) Therapy, which is especially effective in treating Post Traumatic Stress Disorder.

More Info About My Practice
My specialty is helping families living with autism spectrum and related issues. It is my belief and personal experience that a healthy parent is key in raising a healthy child. I help parents navigate and cope with the stressors that accompany raising and loving a child with very special needs. My practice also includes an Art Therapist who specializes in autism, attention deficit, emotional regulation & sensory processing issues. We have several therapeutic support groups for people with ASD, parents and siblings. We are private pay only and do not accept insurance, mainly in an effort to give you the most comprehensive, private and ethical counseling experience possible.
Specific Issue(s) I'm Skilled at Helping With
I have been helping parents of Children with disabilities for several years, particularly Autism Spectrum Disorders. My own son has ASD and as a result I have become skilled in the areas of stress reduction, relationships, marital issues, depression and anxiety as they relate to parenting children with special needs. Healthy boundaries are necessary for self-care, and healthy relationships and most people are not equipped with these important life skills.
How My Own Struggles Made Me a Better Therapist
My experience raising a child with autism and another with ADHD & learning disabilities has strengthened my desire and ability to help other parents in similar situations.
