It is possible to feel better, to see change, and to regain confidence, control and balance in your family and your life. As a therapist working with adults and teens I am relaxed, practical, and hands-on. My approach is direct and effective, focused on increasing the "toolbox" of skills you can use in difficult situations. Working together, we will set goals based on your immediate concerns, problem-solve solutions, try out new ways to think about and handle your problems, and we will make changes that are lasting. I utilize a combination go cognitive behavioral therapy, dialectic behavioral therapy, and mindfulness approaches. I can help you through issues including anxiety, depression, challenging behaviors, self-esteem, life transitions, school refusal, trauma, gender and sexual identity, eating disorders, addiction and more. I emphasize a collaborative, non-judgmental therapy relationship focused on making improvements to both your mood and your challenging situations. Our path together will be driven by your unique personality, needs, and goals.
