In individual therapy I help my clients to explore and understand their core beliefs, feelings, behaviors, and interpersonal interactions. Understanding issues as they come up in the therapeutic relationship, as well as in your outside life, leads to deeper self-awareness and more satisfying ways of being. I work with clients to gain greater insight into their true needs and wants so they can make choices that best serve them.
I work with adult individuals on a variety of issues including:
Childhood and adolescence is invariably a period of growth that at times can be turbulent and difficult for the whole family. It is a critical time for identity development as your child experiences significant changes. Youth are left with the monumental task of negotiating their place in a constantly changing world while at the same time attempting to find a unique way of being that is separate from parents and the family. This often leads to confusion and frustration for kids and parents alike. Therapy can help children and adolescents foster a greater understanding of themselves, build skills for communicating effectively, develop a healthy sense of self, and resolve conflicts both inside and outside the home. Families who see me can examine their ability to solve problems and express their thoughts and feelings in a safe environment.
I work with pre-teens, adolescents, and families on a variety of issues including:

Most couples experience conflict, but how we deal with the conflict is an important aspect of the relationship. Therapy can open up a safe and non-judgmental space to explore thoughts, feelings, and misunderstandings in a way that facilitates growth and connection.
