I Specialize in Reaching Kids

For the last two decades I have specialized in the art of Play Therapy, working with children experiencing life challenges such as divorce, grief and loss, OCD, separation anxiety and behavioral challenges. I work with parents and families, teaching skills you can use at home to connect more deeply with your children.

Teen & Adult Therapy

Teens face intense stressors from multiple sources–pressure at school to perform above grade level, demanding athletic competition, challenging peer interactions, as well as family changes and transitions. Having someone in their life who is outside the hubbub of home, school and sport to teach them stress management skills and ways to navigate intense emotion, has benefits that reach far into their future.

Treatment Focuses

  • Adult, Child and Adolescent Psychotherapy

What to expect:

  • Typically, upon hearing from you, we will do a brief phone intake (approximately 10 minutes) to determine if I will be the best fit for you or for your child. If I feel that one of my colleagues will be able to address your issues more effectively due to their areas of training and expertise, I will give you a referral name or two.
