I specialize in the treatment of anxiety, depression, anger, ADD/ADHD
(children, teens and adults), recovery from abuse or trauma, and providing effective parenting strategies.
For those interested in holistic healing, I address emotional, mental, nutritional/health and spiritual/energetic
I have a gentle and intuitive style, using a nonjudgmental, supportive
approach. I am direct and honest with feedback and observations. Whether working with you, you and your partner,
or your child, I will honor your unique personality and values. It is important to me that both children and
adults feel respected and understood when they are in my office.
have studied several psychological theoretical perspectives such as Family Systems, Cognitive-Behavioral, Gestalt, Object-Relations,
and Transpersonal theories as well as a variety of Eastern and Western healing modalities. I am trained in the
use of EMDR, or Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing, (both Level I & II Certificates) which is an effective therapy
for the treatment of Post Traumatic Stress Disorder and other trauma-based conditions. My methods include conversation, education, relaxation and mindfulness skills practices, and
art or play therapy for children.
re-learning to trust your inner voice helps you to communicate much more effectively and to deal with past trauma
or challenging family or social situations. This is an important part of the work I do with adults and children in therapy.
I will help you learn to stay centered within difficult
situations, increase your awareness of the dynamics of family/social/work relationships, and guide you toward making your
own empowered decisions. As you tap into your inner wisdom and innate abilities, you will begin to create the kind
of life you really want.
