Through psychotherapy, I help people to think, learn and connect in their relationships and in their lives.
By establishing a warm and accepting environment, I help adults and children to understand and express their emotions, and to process difficult feelings and experiences. Research shows that people feel better by thinking about the underlying causes for their feelings. In a neutral and safe space to think and feel, clients develop a trusting relationship with me. Together we work to see patterns in behavior and thoughts, and to understand what is causing them to be unhappy.
Using play and talk therapy, children undergo dramatic transformations in their behavior. Through regular parent meetings, parents are able to understand the meaning behind their child’s behavior, leading to a more relaxed and satisfying relationship.
The following emotional stressors lead people to seek psychotherapy:
Anxiety, Depression, Friendship and Relationship Problems, Excessive Shyness, Low Self Esteem, Behavior Problems, Anger Management, Sleep Issues
I am particularly interested in Infant and Young Child Mental Health, Parents in Transition, Relationship Issues, Parent/Child Relationships, Life Cycle Changes, LGBT Issues, Children of Immigrants, Families with Special Needs (Emotional/Physical).
