Whether you have clear-cut goals, or just a sense that things in your life aren’t what you want them to be, I am an experienced guide who can help you navigate obstacles in your way. Through counseling, you can attain the happiness and personal fulfillment you seek.
I bring a warm, caring and interactive style to our meetings. You will find it easy to make a positive connection and feel supported. This is the first step in working as a powerful client-therapist team to achieve the gains you seek. Together, we can view problems not as failings, but as opportunities for personal growth and learning. I promise to treat the issues you bring with sensitivity, compassion and competence.
I help people make desired changes, overcome problems, increase skillful living, uncover deeper parts of themselves, gain insight and move to greater awareness and life satisfaction. The obstacles in your path are an invitation to learn new ways of coping and to make contact with your deeper Self in a journey into healing.
Some of my areas of knowledge, training and experience include:
I help children bond with their adopted parents, increasing trust and resolving oppositional defiance and emotional dysregulation. Pre-adoption trauma, abuse or neglect make it hard for children to trust adoptive parents and may result in severe behavioral acting out or emotional distancing. I am uniquely trained in Dyadic Developmental Psychotherapy which actively helps resistant children attach to loving adoptive parents.
Mars Venus Relationship Counseling
Having personally trained with Dr. John Gray, author of “Men are From Mars, Women Are From Venus,” I draw on Mars Venus Relationship tools to help couples mend communication problems, resolve difficult issues, and rekindle closeness and intimacy. Many relationship difficulties dissolve when we understand gender differences and “where our partner is coming from.” Couples gain practical, easy-to-apply tools and techniques that help in a hurry.
Individual Psychotherapy & Counseling
Often life problems are invitations to expand our learning and increase our life skills. In a depth-oriented approach I help people make desired changes, gain insight and move to greater awareness and life satisfaction. Life stress, transitions, relationship disappointments, anxiety, depression, and illness are all invitations to make contact with our deeper selves in a journey into healing. I can help with issues including:
