I am looking forward to meeting you or your family. I particularly enjoy working with persons of all ages, from toddlers to adults, who are having challenges at home, in school, at work, or in their peer or family relationships. Have there been situations in your life that have caused stress, sadness, anger, or behavioral issues? I would like to assist you or your family in adjusting to these stressors and in learning new ways of coping. I also assist parents with improving cooperation at home, reducing family conflicts, and using effective discipline. Please contact me to schedule an appointment.I use Cognitive Behavioral techniques for effective changes in a Brief Therapy format. I use Therapeutic Play to help children express their feelings and concerns and learn how to cope with life’s challenges. I have expertise in treating children, adolescents, and adults who have a history of trauma or abuse.I incorporate a variety of techniques to encourage expression of feelings and ideas and develop self-confidence, self-reliance, and develop coping skills. Including the entire family in treatment promotes improved cooperation, communication, and conflict resolution.
