While I welcome anyone coming through my door [individual adults, couples, families], I have found my niche is working with teens and/or parents of teens.
My clinical focus and personal experience draws me to providing treatment of trauma and the commonly co-occurring struggles; namely anxiety, depression, and addiction [chemical dependency and process addictions]. In particular with adolescents and adults. I do not provide treatment for children under the age of 12.
All sessions are self pay.

Therapy is developing a healing relationship with another person who has training and experience in guiding or counseling the psychological processes of another human being. It’s an opportunity to get to know yourself through another person’s eyes; to gain alternative insight into your story. A common therapy session incorporates many parts of typical conversation: speaking, listening, reasoning, empathizing, reacting, validating. You and I will speak about your concerns, your accomplishments, your pain, your goals and aspirations. You will educate me on your way of seeing the world, and at other times I will talk with you about your processes as they appear to me in session.
I have found that people [not things] hold the strongest potential forces to hurt and heal us. No one can hurt us like another person, and no one can heal us like another person. One of my primary responsibilities as your therapist is to help coach you on recognizing and relinquishing the “hurting” relationships, and establishing and nurturing the “healing” relationships.
While many will initially seek out individual therapy, it can be beneficial to consider couples or family therapy. Having those you are in relation with present in therapy can provide opportunities to address some of the unintentional and dysfunctional patterns of communication within the relationship.
