Therapy is an opportunity to optimize your flow and balance in life. Together we can refine the skills to navigate the chaos and rigidity that life throws your way! Whatever place and phase you find yourself in, let’s make sure it is heading in your desired direction.
The challenges of life rarely go away. With all my clients, my intent is to help you build a toolkit of skills to meet them. My therapeutic foundation integrates Client-Centered Therapy, Narrative Therapy and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy. A key goal will be to improve your intrinsic sense of self, with an overarching goal to continually investigate and update the narrative formed about your life.
For parents, I share with you the experience of the ups and downs of having kids! My personal and clinical background is at your disposal as a resource. Parenting can mean being exhausted, frustrated, excited and proud — sometimes all in the same moment. Together we can work at learning how to remain still in that daily flux.
With children, I meet them at their level and speak their language through play. The number one priority is to establish a place where they feel safe, and respected as a person. Using play therapy I help children discover, on their own terms, alternate ways to understand and respond to their life experiences.
