As a psychotherapist, I believe that
each of us holds the capacity to utilize our personal creativity to
resolve life's challenges. I seek to assist the folks I work with
to find their strengths. I utilize a number of therapeutic modalities, including Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, DBT, ACT, Solution Focused, Interactive Guided Imagery, Ericksonian Hypnosis, and play therapy, including work with sand tray. Over time I have also added music evoked imagery and expressive arts to my pool of therapeutic options and resources. Upon the initial therapy session, we will work together to determine the most beneficial modality for you, your family, or your child.
Over the years, I have gained a broad range of experience
in working with issues unique to adults, families and couples, such as mood disorders, anxiety, grief, and stage of life issues. In
addition, I specialize in working with children and adolescents
around issues such as depression, anxiety, school refusal, behavioral
concerns, ADHD, identity, substance abuse, and loss. Most recently I completed certification through the MISS Foundation for providing support for people experiencing traumatic loss and grief.
