Thank you for your interest in my practice. 

I am a licensed psychologist, and I provide therapy for adults, couples, children and families.  I also provide consultation services to parents, programs, and other professionals.

As a therapist, my first and main goal is always to be of help.  People come to therapy at times of stress, confusion, or pain, and I will listen carefully and with respect.  Together, we will look closely at the circumstances or problems that are causing distress, or getting in the way of living your life as you would like to. We will begin to envision the change you are hoping for, and to understand and overcome the obstacles that you face.  We will build a collaborative relationship in which your needs are central and primary.  I will bring my expertise, my curiosity, and my compassion.  As we go further together, we may pay particular attention to past experiences, relationships and trauma, and how they are influencing your present situation.  Often, we will focus on finding solutions to the present dilemmas, practicing new skills, and planning for a brighter future.
