I work with children, individuals & couples. In my work with children I engage them in a non-pressured environment using play & talk therapy as I work with them and their parents to help understand their world, increase awareness, promote effective communication & find meaningful solutions.
I do a lot of work with individuals who struggle with anxiety, depression or anger to learn to cope and express themselves. I selectively use family & interpersonal dynamics. I use EFT to help couples improve the intimacy and closeness that they crave in their marriage while improving communication and understanding.
I seek to understand the individual circumstances and challenges of each of my clients within the context of their lives. I take a comprehensive and optimistic approach that emphasizes my clients' strengths, helps them develop greater insight, and identify practical ways they can promote effective change in their lives.
Advanced training in: Emotionally Focused Couples Therapy (EFT), Ericksonian Hypnosis, Gottman Couples Therapy, Play Therapy & Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT)
