My Approach to Helping

As a psychotherapist in practice for over twenty years, I work with individuals and families
cooperatively exploring and understanding the struggles and challenges they may be facing. Together we determine goals for our work. Those goals may include learning to face challenges in a different way, becoming healthier and happier, and experiencing more satisfying relationships. I work with children and families dealing with behavioral issues, depression, parent divorce, and blended family challenges. I see adolescents and adults with a variety of life issues including depression, anxiety, and eating disorders.

More Info About My Practice

I am a Registered Nurse with emergency room and Pediatric experience, as well as management experience. I am a Certified Clinical Hypnotherapist, and I hold a certificate in The Diagnosis and Treatment of Eating Disorders, all of which give me a myriad of experience and understanding to bring into session and into the work we will do together.
I quote the Dalai Lama, "The purpose of our lives is to be happy." I realize none of us can be happy every minute of every day but if I can help someone work through their problems and experience a little more happiness, I feel as if I have succeeded.
Currently I have a limited practice. I see clients via Zoom visits only.

Important Factors for Choosing a Therapist

When you set out to choose a therapist for yourself, you and a partner, or your child, it can feel like a daunting challenge. There are so many of us to choose from with varied levels of experience. Of course the first thing you look for is whether the therapist has listed what you perceive as the issue you are dealing with in their treatment list. When you call or email the therapist, do you feel comfortable communicating with himher? If you are not comfortable on first contact it might be best to move down the list. Then make an appointment to meet with the therapist. I have found that after about twenty minutes most people have a sense of whether they feel compatible and comfortable with the therapist. Trust your instincts.
