My Approach to Helping

I am a licensed psychotherapist who has been working with children, families, adults, and couples for 11 years. I specialize in helping people understand and move past worries and conflicts that hold individuals and families back from valuing themselves, being productive, happy, and having satisfying relationships. I have successfully worked with anxiety, depression, childhood trauma, school failure, family and relationship discord, peer conflict and bullying, and developmental issues at all phases of life -- early childhood, tween, adolescence, puberty, identity formation and sexuality, career, and the concerns unique to aging. I have experience working with both boys and girls and men and women who have survived sexual abuse and the sensitive emotional and life issues they face. I have worked extensively with kids who have a history of psychiatric inpatient and day treatment for emotional distress, suicidality, debilitating anxiety, and acting out. Young adults who are trying to find direction and those at all ages suffering from grief and loss have been successful in therapy with me. I have evening appointments available and can take private pay with a sliding scale, if desired.

More Info About My Practice
