Adults, couples, adolescents and children need a safe and trusting environment to facilitate the process of insight and change, and to boost their self esteem. I provide a warm, empathetic goal-oriented approach where individuals or couples can explore their feelings, work on interpersonal relationships, and consider options for growth, and emotional well being. As we work together, I strategize with clients about constructive ways to navigate the complex meanings of relationships and to generate new ways of ensuring family harmony and relational effectiveness. I help adults, as individuals, parents or as a couple, feel safe enough to move towards healthier ways of functioning. Adolescents learn to make meaning of their world and identity. Using play therapy techniques, children learn to make sense of their experiences and feelings as we work towards developmentally appropriate goals. My therapeutic style is integrative, incorporating a psychodynamic approach, and cognitive behavioral therapy.Together we work to expand your sense of self as an individual and within the family. While every therapeutic relationship has unique challenges, the common thread to all my relationships is the presence of empathy, compassion and genuine caring.
