My Approach to Helping

Children can be challenging and sometimes we just don't know what to do with a temper tantrum or problems at school. Sometimes parents just need a fresh look at the situation and some new tools. Children often need a healthy way to express themselves, so those stressful behaviors calm down. I work with all members of the family to learn new ways of dealing with situations and help restore harmony.

We all want a safe connection in our relationships. We all need someone to turn to when the world isn't being kind. I believe that with the right tools you can have that warm and loving relationship you have longed for. In counseling, couples in distress can learn ways to express their need for love and support and receive comfort from their partners. As your therapist, it's my passion to guide you through rough times and find your way back to each other.
