- Adolescents, 13 and up, who come to therapy by choice
- College students
In my practice, I focus on the following needs:
Crisis counseling and stress management
I use a blend of solution-focused, cognitive-behavioral and mindfulness approaches to help you set your own goals and identify the personal strengths that will help you meet those goals.
Parents raising challenging children
In our work together, you will learn:
- effective discipline techniques
- active listening skills
- anger control for child and parent
- age-appropriate developmental expectations with special considerations for children with special needs
- parent self-care
Blended families and parents raising step-children
Blended families face unique challenges as children and adults work to manage family loyalties, discipline and new households. I provide solution-focused therapy to help families identify strategies that meet the needs of all family members while building relationships, trust and competency in creating a new family.
Adolescents and adults with depression, anxiety, social problems, learning & developmental disabilities, including those with Aspergers Syndrome
I will help you develop a deeper self-awareness of emotions and behaviors that hold you back from a more satisfying life and more meaningful relationships with others. You will learn to identify your strengths and find effective solutions.
Adolescents and adults with a history of sexual abuse
I provide a safe, sensitive and confidential environment to work with you through this unique issue, so that you can move beyond your abuse history.
Mindfulness-based breathing and meditation techniques to treat anxiety, depression, panic, anger, sleep and stress management.
