I provide short and long-term psychotherapy for children, adolescents, adults, couples and families. I have experience over a range of patients including individuals coping with life transitions, parenting struggles, substance abuse, elderly, service members, veterans and the families that support these concerns.
With training in family systems therapy (relationship focused), psychodynamic therapy (insight focused), and cognitive-behavioral therapy (skill building focused), I strive to integrate and merge different perspectives to tailor each treatment to the needs of the individual client. My approach is collaborative and non-judgmental. I concentrate on helping people deal with personal and professional challenges, work to understand past and present influences, and focus on future directions. Developing coping skills, identifying personal strengths, building self-esteem, and highlighting resources are essential tasks for all of us.
When the individual circumstance has called for collaborative support between client, therapist, family, school, primary care physician, or other relevant auxiliary professionals, I welcome and appreciate a team approach to therapy.
I value, trust and maintain privacy and confidentiality.
