Welcome. I apply my 30 plus years of experience to assist adults, adolescents, couples, and children who are seeking happier, better balanced lives. My approach is accepting, hopeful, creative, and sometimes humorous. I adjust my approach according to my client's needs, preferences and age. Therapy always addresses happiness, balance, personal growth and success. To reach this end, I have experience addressing:
Depression, Anxiety, OCD, Grief, Stress, Couples Issues, Addictions, Trauma, Sexual Abuse, Physical Abuse, Parenting issues, Single parenting, Blended Families, Academic Struggles, ADHD, Children Coping with Divorce, Sexual Identity and Orientation Questions, and Aggression.
I am an Adlerian Therapist. Within this framework sessions may include elements of cognitive therapy, behavioral therapy, play, art, role playing, and exploration of existential themes. I use an Adlerian approach to child / family therapy. This approach is the basis of the popular "Positive Discipline" series. I also use Lifespan Integration Therapy.
