Services Offered

Individual Therapy

People come to therapy for different reasons.  Sometimes it’s in reaction to a specific life event or setback.  Sometimes it’s in search of a perspective on a particular issue or challenge.  Other times it’s in hopes of gaining insight into an ongoing or recurring pattern of relating to others, work or life in silhouette girl portraitgeneral.  I often see clients that experience the following:

  • General emotional distress
  • Anger
  • Grief/Loss
  • Life transitions
  • Concerns over aging
  • Constant worrying
  • Relationship difficulties
  • Difficulty in controlling certain behaviors
  • Disturbing or intrusive thoughts
  • Career stagnation or dissatisfaction

Couples Therapy

Couples come to therapy for different reasons as well. All relationships change over time and are impacted by the stress and demands of everyday life. Sometimes it is helpful to talk with a therapist to explore the sources of conflict or dissatisfaction. I often see couples who are experiencing significant conflict, lack of intimacy, infidelity and disagreements over values. I specialize in working with couples who are experiencing high conflict, struggling with issues related to raising children, finances, coping with the challenges of blending families and working through long-standing disagreements and lost intimacy. When working with couples I emphasize individual psychology, interpersonal dynamics, relational ethics and fairness.

Adolescent and Family Therapy

Parents often seek consultation when their children have difficulty navigating the often challenging period of adolescence. I work most effectively with children in middle school, adolescents and young adults who are struggling with depression, anxiety, grief, addiction, and oppositional or disruptive behavior.

I have specialized training and experience in working through a variety of issues that challenge young people. I help address issues of loneliness, fear and worry, lack of motivation, anger, failure to take responsibility and blaming behavior, lying or misleading, overuse and misuse of the internet, drug and alcohol abuse or dependence, self-injury and extreme emotional distress. When working with children and adolescents I work from a family systems perspective. This allows each family member to gain objectivity and insight into the way in which their own individual psychology impacts the child and the family as a whole.
