Experienced individual, child, family, and couples therapist

Every stage of life presents different challenges and opportunities for growth. Having worked as a licensed psychotherapist for 30 years with children, adults, couples, and families, I am a resource for people seeking to meet those challenges, resolve difficult problems, and achieve the growth that results from this process.

Finding the right individual, child, family, or couples therapist can be difficult and confusing. If you are looking for a therapist to help you reduce or manage stress in your family life or in the parent-child relationship, you may be wondering where to begin. You might consider starting with individual sessions for yourself or parenting sessions. Taking these steps can have a significant positive impact on your personal wellbeing as well as the wellbeing of your entire family. Our work together will enable you to resolve family of origin issues, reduce family conflict, acquire more effective parenting strategies, improve parent-child relationships, and forge deeper emotional connections between members of your family.
