Life transitions and critical events affect all of us, from early childhood through retirement age. If you are looking for a supportive and experienced therapist to join you in navigating parts of you or your family's world, I can help. Contacting a mental health provider takes courage and a willingness to be vulnerable with your most personal feelings and stories. I respect and honor any opportunity I have to be a part of this journey with you.
One of my strongest skills is the ability to listen to many sides of a story and to stay objective. This can be very useful when working with families and couples encountering challenging transitions or new events in their families. Many perspectives enhance my understanding and ability to relate to others' experiences.
Using art and creative modalities, play and talk therapy, as well as working with the parent and child together, I have a broad sense of how to support children through challenging times including parents' divorce and separation, school anxiety, and social-emotional skill building.
Loss and grief do not only apply to the death of a friend or family member. This issue can be a common hurdle for most, especially regarding life transitions and changes out of one's control. My own life experiences, and collaboration with the Dougy Center, pet loss support groups, and individual work with those who have lost a loved one, all provide me with tools to support others at this time.
Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) is one of the ways in which I have practiced an effective treatment for depression, with both groups and individuals. This approach which uses the strengths of the brain, a person's actions, and goal-setting, to redirect thought patterns away from a negative cycle and into a more productive and success-oriented path.
