My Approach to Helping
Everyone goes through a tough time in their lives: anxiety, martial separation, loss of a loved one, inability to conceive a child, high school self-esteem challenges, or even a period of the "blues." My clients know me for my ability to help them help themselves. I have great success among adolescents and their parents; men & women individually and as a couple. These couples may be experiencing the stress of a struggling marriage or the roller coaster of fertility issues.
I am a certified member of the American Society of Reproductive Medicine (ASRM) and it Mental Health Professionals Group (MHPG). I am able to do Psychological Evaluation and Counseling for couples who require this prior to ART procedures. I am also a certified trauma and Loss Counselor,EMDR trained and Dialectical behavior Therpay (DBT) trained.
I've been an Adolescent, Adult, Couple and Family Therapist for over 14 years. Prior to private practice I had experience in a variety of settings: a community agency, juvenile detention center, and inpatient and outpatient hospital departments. I also have a strong practice in depression, fertility issues, parenting skills.
My goal is to get you out of therapy as soon as it safely possible. I give you the tools you need and teach how to use them so you can take of yourself.
