• Therapy for every life stage...

    Children, Adolescents, and Adults

    “It’s never too late to have a happy childhood…”

    Trained as a Cognitive-Behavioral therapist, my style is interactive and solution-focused. Focusing on short-term treatment, my goal is to provide support and practical feedback to help clients address current life challenges and long-standing issues. With compassion and understanding, I help individuals and couples find resolution to a wide range of personal concerns and psychological issues.

    Whether working with children, adolescents or adults, couples or families, I draw from a variety of methodologies and techniques. The integration of complimentary approaches allows me to incorporate what is most helpful to each client and situation. In a comfortable and supportive atmosphere, I offer a highly personalized approach tailored to each client’s specific needs to help them develop strengths, achieve life goals, and attain the personal growth they are striving for.

    Charlie Turned 14!

    We are so excited to have had the opportunity to celebrate Charlie’s 14th birthday! Diagnosed with a heart condition at 8 years old, we have approached every day as a “gift.” Charlie is still a happy little guy, who still loves his meals and any treats he can get with his warm, convincing eyes. He has developed some disc problems which has caused some difficulty using his back legs, and was going to rehab (see dog gallery for video of his underwater treadmill “workout”) to build up his strength when he started having seizures and had to stop. Although he is completely deaf now, he has adapted seamlessly, using his eyesight and smell to alert him when people are coming and going or if someone is eating something he might want a piece of! He misses seeing his regular friends, especially those who always gave him a cookie when they were visiting. He is taking a variety of medications, some which make his quite hungry so you might hear him during a session impersonating a pterodactyl (his cry for food) or snoring!
