My Approach

My style is open, honest, and down-to-earth. I heartily believe in a strengths-based, direct, and family systems approach to my therapy practice. When working with parents and families of young children, I draw on my certification in and past facilitation of The Incredible Years Parenting Series. Prior and recent group work using both Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and the Women's Circle model helped me hone my skills in both of these approaches. An intensive training in Emotion-Focused Therapy for Couples as well as experience with the concepts of Non-Violent Communication provide me with useful tools when addressing relationship issues. The practice of Solution-Focused Brief Therapy, when applicable, and my recent training in the Community Resiliency Model (a trauma-informed approach), add to the strategies used in my well-rounded practice which offers something for almost everyone. My office is handicapped-accessible and offers free one-hour parking for clients.

My Background

After graduating with my Masters in Social Work in 1992, I went to work in the field of Early Childhood Mental Health. There, I began my career as a child and family therapist, as well as an expert in the social and emotional needs of the young child. Working with parents led me into couples counseling, which is an integral part of healthy co-parenting. However, some parents are working together out of separate households, and this factor led me into my work with blended families and step-parenting. Being from a large family myself, I am excited and intrigued to work with more than one member of the family at a time. My practice has also brought me into the realm of the young adult and the challenges, adventures, and anxieties that this time of life can create. In my practice, I have been able to support many young adults as they navigate the waters between their 20s and 30s. Both my personal and work experience contribute to the skills I bring into the therapy experience.
