What To Expect

GUIDING YOU ON THE PATH OF SELF-HEALING

For over 17 years I have provided a wide range of psychological services including individual, child and family therapy, group therapy, and psychological evaluations. Life can be overwhelming and sometimes even exhausting, but I’m here to guide you through those obstacles. My goal is to help you understand yourself more deeply through the psychotherapy experience, and get you back on track. Together we will identify goals you have for yourself, your family, and your life, and work together to achieve those goals.

Services I Offer

As a Licensed Clinical Psychologist, I implement effective psychotherapy methods to instill self-understanding among patients and encourage them to adopt new attitudes and feelings towards life situations. From small scale circumstances, to traumatic experiences – my services are personalized to each individual needs.

 

Individual Therapy

Perhaps you're down or anxious - maybe you're unsure about the future of a relationship, or just feel that you aren't living the life you were meant to lead. Whatever your needs may be, I am here to offer support. Therapy is a process of growth and self-discovery. In my therapy sessions I promote behavioral transformation by encouraging a positive outlook and the adoption of new attitudes and feelings. Whether you’re going through anxiety and depression, a hard relationship, or trying to overcome an addiction - I will work with you to create change you want to achieve

Child Therapy

I have worked with children since 2000 utilizing cognitive behavioral interventions and therapeutic play to decrease challenging and maladaptive behaviors in children while promoting pro-social and adaptive behaviors. I work closely with parents and caregivers to implement effective parent techniques to bring about desired changes which promote a healthy and happy child

Family and Couples Therapy

Each member of a family plays a  role in the successes and overall wellbeing of the family unit. I work to assist each member with understanding their own role within the family system, and identify and change relational patterns that are preventing intimacy, connection, and functioning. We will work together to improve communication and increase understanding and compassion for each member of the family in order to increase the ability to feel closeness between family members and partners. Therapy can offer a safe place to explore these new ways of interacting.
