Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
I work with couples, teens, and adults in a caring and supportive environment. My particular areas of interest are:

  • Working with adolescents and their families, to help them navigate the difficult issues of identity-formation, independence-versus-nurturing, and communication challenges.

  • Working with people experiencing identity issues of all sorts, especially as they come up in the adolescent and/or mid-life years.

  • Working with adolescents who were adopted into their families or who have spent time in the foster-care system, especially as these experiences affect their sense of themselves.

  • Working with people who are struggling to manage their symptoms of ADHD and/or Bipolar Disorder: helping with self-monitoring, organization, and adjusting to the changes experienced with prescribed medications.

  • I consider it an honor to work with each of my clients, and I welcome your inquiries.
