My Approach to Helping
I have been a therapist for over 25 years and have worked with a variety of age groups in a variety of settings. My approach is based on my relationship with each client. I build a warm, compassionate connection with each person(s) continually assessing the individual andor family needs. I use Cognitive Behavioral, psychodynamic and insight-oriented approaches. With children I enjoy using play and art therapy. I have extensive experience working with ADHD in both adults and children. In addition, I enjoy working within parents, couples and families. Having taught parenting classes for a number of years, I especially like coaching parents. I also work with depression, anxiety, grief and loss, OCD, eating and food problems, daily life challenges, developmental disorders including Autism and Aspergers. My work includes young adults who are transitioning into adulthood.
Lastly, I have considerable experience with adoptive families.
Look forward to working with you!!
