My Approach to Helping

People are naturally resilient. Therapy is a chance to boost resilience by nurturing awareness and finding fulfillment and strength. Most of us have found ways to manage stress and conflict, but the things that worked in the past might not work today. Understanding the dynamic interactions between external and internal forces can make growth and change possible. I offer a space where clients can explore, reflect, observe, and move beyond feeling stuck. Together we'll improve your flexibility, self-regulation, and choices for solving life's problems.

I work with adults, children, adolescents, and couples. With couples, I encourage alternative ways to respond to one another, making it possible to restore equilibrium and move beyond pain. I offer children and adolescents joint sessions with parents to promote more effective dialogue My experience with school-based consultation and assessment offers a solid framework for coordinating with counselors and teachers, where appropriate.

More Info About My Practice

I am an out-of-network provider, so please verify your health insurance coverage before you arrange your first visit. I will discuss fees on a case by case basis in the event that you are not covered. I work in an interdisciplinary setting, offering psychiatric, art therapy, and clinical social work services. A unique feature of our practice is the ongoing consultation with other clinicians. If I can't help you, or you need a referral for more help, I can help you find resources.
