My Approach to Helping

Therapy should be a safe place to express your thoughts and feelings, without being judged. Whether you are struggling with worries and fears, overwhelming emotions, chronic pain, difficult life circumstances or multiple issues, just being able to express yourself freely is an important step. Often we feel stuck, and deep in a maze of problems where it's hard to see the way out. I love to help people find inner strengths, and options, that they didn't realize they had.

More Info About My Practice

I do accept insurance, and have a sliding fee scale for those without insurance.
After school, evening, Saturday appointments are available. In 2016, we're adding Sunday appointments.

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

There can be times when adults need to share difficult or painful information with children, but don't know how or what to say. It's important to be honest, in an age appropriate way, with children going thru divorce, custody issues, adoption, foster care or guardianship issues. I have a lot of experience in helping parents or caregivers, and children, sort this out.
