I have a passion for helping people of all ages improve their relationships, develop healthy coping skills and heal from relational injuries or trauma. In a safe and accepting environment we explore and understand the things that are not working well for you. There is always a reason for people’s choices and behaviors, even those that cause significant problems. Once you understand the reason behind the behavior you can begin to make changes and adopt new healthier ways of living. I walk alongside and encourage you in this often difficult, but rewarding process.
I specialize in working with children dealing with issues like divorce & loss, anxiety and ADHD. Children frequently do not have words to express what is going on, so I use their natural language of play. Helping children cope with difficult circumstances when they are young allows them to have a positive view of themselves and build healthy relationships throughout life.
With adults I specialize in developing healthy relationships, parenting and treating anxiety and depression.
Please call or email me for an individual, couple or family therapy consultation today.
