Specialties

While I am qualified to treat any modality, I specialize in couples, children, families, and parents. I also work with adult individuals.

Couples

To have a successful and happy relationship, it takes work. Therapy can help couples to improve communication, resolve conflicts and feel more connected.

I assist couples with any of the following issues:

  • Premarital Counseling
  • Communication Issues
  • Divorce/Separation
  • Relationship Conflict
  • Life Transitions


 

Children

Therapy for children is a special form of treatment. Prior to entering private practice, I worked with children of all ages who struggled with a myriad of issues such as abuse, ADHD, anger issues, and grief & loss. When working with children, the primary form of therapy I utilize is play therapy. Children relate to the world around them through play. Therapeutic play allows children the opportunity to process troubling events, express thoughts and feelings and resolve inner conflicts. I incorporate different forms of play in therapy such as art, clay, games and pretend play. 

I help children and adolescents who are struggling with the following:

  • Trauma
  • Family Problems
  • Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder
  • Behavior Problems
  • Self-Esteem Issues
  • Depression & Anxiety
  • Life Transitions
  • a Survivors
  • Anger Management
  • School Related Issues
  • Grief & Loss


Families 

Often enough, emotional issues impact more than the individual. Sometimes change needs to occur on a larger level. When this is the case, it is important to work with the family as a whole. Family therapy can help all types of families enhance communication, create healthy boundaries and improve family structure. 

I help families struggling with issues related to:

  • Family Conflict
  • Divorce/Separation
  • Life Transitions
  • Grief & Loss
  • Communication Issues
  • Trauma
  • Negative Patterns

Parents

As a mother myself, I know that being a parent can be tough! Whether you are soon-to-be parents, new parents, or parents to a teen - each stage can offer its own unique difficulties. This exciting stage of life is very fulfilling and rewarding, but it can also be challenging. Parenthood can cause stress on a couple's relationship, in fact, researchers have indicated that the child-rearing phase of a relationship is when couples report the lowest levels of relationship satisfaction.  It can be difficult to find a good work/life balance that works for you and your family. You may find yourself sacrificing your individual identity to be the Super Parent. 

I work with moms, dads, grandparents, and caregivers to address any of the following:

  • Birth & Adoption
  • New Parents
  • Developing & maintaining rules, discipline, family time, and boundaries for the family
  • Nuturing the couple's relationship within the context of a busy family life
  • Grief & Loss
  • School Issues
  • Emotional support for single parents
  • Achieving a healthy work/life balance
  • Letting go of the role of "Super Parent"
