Through a supportive and nurturing relationship, we will work together to strengthen your emotional resources and change unhealthy patterns. Such work often involves a thoughtful understanding of the ways in which important relationships, significant life experiences, and society/culture contribute to current obstacles. Gradually, you will deepen your insight about your thoughts, feelings, and behaviors; develop healthy ways to cope with stress; and improve your quality of life. I offer services for adults, children, adolescents, families, and couples. When working with children/adolescents, I encourage parent participation that is congruent to treatment goals.I view therapy as a collaborative process where trust and safety are valued and respected. This foundation allows us to explore your life story, connect the past with the present, and create a greater self-awareness.My specialties include relationship issues, recovery from trauma, coping with developmental or life transitions, working through divorce, and recovery from addiction. I also specialize in working with parent and infant/child relationships, as well as pregnancy concerns and postpartum depression/anxiety.
