Life can be challenging even under the best of circumstances... You may be feeling stuck, worried, anxious or depressed in ways that affect your social, school or professional relationships, color social interactions, or deter you from reaching goals or being the person you want to be. These difficulties may derive from ways of coping that were essential in dealing with important figures or circumstances earlier in your life. Therapy can be a powerful way of using another relationship to identify these coping strategies and their reasons for being, developing a more effective way of being yourself and relating to others.
If you're the parent of a son or daughter who is struggling, you are in the position to seek help that will relieve their discomfort. Iím happy to meet with you and your child or adolescent to evaluate whether psychotherapy can help with their social, emotional or behavioral difficulties.
To my practice with adult individuals and couples I bring passion, competence and insight cultivated through in-depth training and direct life experience. Special interests include career satisfaction and cultural issues. To my work with children and adolescents I bring a warmth, playfulness and expertise sharpened by years in the field.
