I am a caring person, just like you. I see clients as individuals. My areas of expertise include working children, as well as adolescents and adults whose lives have simply become unmanageable, sometimes due to depression or anxiety and at times life changing events.
I can treat you individually and/or treat your family as a whole. My clients' successes include therepeutic work in anxiety, depression, mood disorders, conflict resolution, impulsivity, social skills, relationship building, self esteem, self awareness, stress management, personality disorders, parenting, anger management, life changing events, and addiction.
I utilize insight oriented talk therapy as well as art and play therapy as needed dependent on you or your child's needs.
