I am passionate about helping couples with communication and intimacy issues as well as assisting individuals with depression, anxiety, job issues, aging, illness and loss. I am an active participant in your treatment, and many clients quickly find they not only have a better understanding of what their issues are and how to deal with them, but also feel symptom relief and have tools to manage their lives. In the past few years, I have developed my own mindfulness practice and have incorporated it into counseling sessions to assist clients on managing stress and anxiety as well as being present and enjoying each moment in life.
I also love to work with families and have specialized in counseling families whose children have ADD/ADHD, Autism and Social Communication Disorders, anxiety, and sensory issues. Through games, books, traditional counseling, social stories, and more, children quickly find that counseling builds self-esteem and helps them develop a toolbox of strategies to cope with whatever life sends their way. I also have quite a large collection of penguins in my office, and a great story about noticing the positives in people to go with it!
