I offer a full spectrum of therapy and counseling services to people in all stages of life, including children, teens, adults, couples, and families. My areas of expertise include, but are not limited to, anxiety, depression, Autism Spectrum Disorders, self-esteem issues, family dynamics and co-parenting, relationship issues, premarital and marital counseling, phase of life problems, and childhood behavioral and emotional difficulties.
I believe in building a relationship with clients where they feel comfortable and accepted, yet challenged to grow. I believe that you are the expert of you – you know yourself better than anyone – so I don’t focus on labels.
I focus on you as a whole person.
So, my approach is wholistic and systemic. I use evidence-based therapy techniques to help you develop a growth mindset and get to the root of your struggles. Then I help you learn and use practical, doable strategies to get “unstuck” and develop new patterns.
When we work together, I’ll empower you to see things in new ways, establish and maintain open and effective communication with your loved ones, resolve conflicts, clarify boundaries, rekindle your relationships, and improve the overall quality of your life.
THERAPY DESIGNED TO MEET YOUR NEEDS
Feeling stuck, frustrated, or exhausted by your relationship? I can help you and your partner learn to communicate your thoughts, feelings, and needs so that you can reconnect as a couple.
Does it feel like your family is falling apart? I’ll use a systemic approach to help your family understand its patterns, then help you rebuild your relationships with each other.
Struggling to find balance or adequately fulfill your responsibilities at home or work? I can help you work through the things that are blocking you from living your best life.
Tired of all the tantrums and meltdowns? I’ll help you recognize and understand your parenting style and what’s getting in your way from having a better relationship with your child.
Creative Art Therapy
Having trouble breaking through with traditional therapy? I’ll work with your or your child to help unlock the emotions and words it can often be difficult to express.
NO JUDGEMENT. JUST SOLUTIONS.
I believe that therapy should be a safe space. I’m all about helping you honestly assess why you are where you are, and how you can make things better. So, when I work with individuals, couples, parents, and families, everything is completely confidential and judgement-free. I’m here to support you and get you where you want to go.
