I  have over 36 years of experience working with children, parents, and couples in the field of psychotherapy. I strive to bring harmony, understanding, and balance to couples in both parenting and relationship challenges. Working with children of all ages involves play/art experience therapy and a deep understanding of child development.
I assist my patients in helping them to manage their own individual struggles such as anxiety, depression, anger management, and low self-esteem, through clinical interventions, understanding the cause of troublesome behaviors with the goal of finding solutions, gaining awareness, and guidance toward openness to change.
I offer patients a positive path to order to gain a balance together through the development of healthy coping skills, using mindfulness techniques, solution-focused strategies, and learning to accept and use their own inner resources.
