My practice includes work with children, adolescents and adults. I strive to create an environment of trust and emotional safety, which allows clients to work through difficulties and achieve personal growth.

Individual Therapy

My approach focuses on improving relationships with oneself and others. An important part of this is strengthening self-esteem. This allows clients to free themselves from unhealthy patterns and make lasting life changes. Individuals may seek therapy due to recent stress or an ongoing conflict they have been unable to resolve. Although some people initially worry that talking about themselves may be uncomfortable, most discover individual sessions can offer relief and promote growth.

Couples Therapy

Couples often initiate therapy when they’re experiencing difficulty talking with each other or resolving a conflict. Therapy allows couples to discuss their concerns constructively in a neutral environment. Therapy also provides couples with the tools to improve communication, negotiate differences and effectively problem solve. Trust and respect must be established allowing couples to feel safe to discuss hurt feelings and resolve past and present issues. Couples counseling is a unique opportunity to understand unhealthy patterns and explore improved communication and connection. I welcome couples of all ages, sexual orientations and cultural backgrounds.

Child and Adolescent Therapy

Childhood and adolescence are both times of tremendous growth. Children and teens can benefit from having a space to safely express themselves and receive additional guidance and support. Understanding the unique needs of younger clients, I offer therapeutic services specifically designed to help this age group. These techniques help children to effectively express emotions such as anger, sadness, and anxiety. An important component of my work with youth includes collaboration with parents and other caregivers. Therapy can promote improved communication and coping skills within the entire family system.
