Life can be difficult to navigate. You have your own difficulties and past. You might know what you or your child needs help with. I create a safe environment to listen and talk. I specialize in working with children, adolescents, and adults who have experienced trauma-emotional, physical, or sexual. When children don't know how to talk about their problems, I also work via play therapy to help them express themselves.
I provide a safe, non-judgmental environment to allow adults and adolescents to comfortably express and process their thoughts and feelings. I believe that therapy is a collaborative effort between the client and their therapist. It is a way for someone to explore why they may be feeling or thinking a certain way, which, in turn, can help them learn more about themselves and make positive life changes.
I offer a confidential place for counseling and support in a collaborative environment.
My areas of specialty include trauma, mood disorders and relationship conflicts, as well as grief, and aging adult life transitions.
Finding pathways toward greater well being is fundamental to my practice, but I also find importance in discovering meaning in suffering as well as in joy.
I am a licensed clinical social worker with extensive experience in working with individuals who are struggling with depression, anxiety, relationship or family issues. While I use a multifaceted approach when working with clients, I have found that mindfulness and cognitive behavioral therapy together provide the most benefit. Because our relationships with ourselves and others have been so heavily influenced by what we learned in our family of origin, I also help clients to understand how these family dynamics impact various aspects of life. I believe that finding a therapist you feel comfortable with is a very personal process. My goal is to provide a safe atmosphere where clients can receive the help and support they need in order to improve their overall functioning.
My orientation is humanistic, existential and person centered. I have focuses in strengths based counseling, Gestalt therapy, internal family systems therapy, solution focused therapy and dialectical behavioral therapy (DBT). Some of my areas of healing are depression, anxiety, grief and loss, identity, trauma, and emotional regulation. I work with adults and adolescents to help my clients achieve balance throughout all areas of their lives.
