About My Clients

My area of expertise is ADHD. I work with individuals, couples, and families providing strategies to strengthen executive functions skills applicable to the home, workplace, school, and social settings. I also have experience working with individuals and families in crisis, individuals with clinical mental health issues, and troubled children and adolescents with severe emotional trauma, behavioral, and conduct disorders.

My Background and Approach

My psychotherapy approach is focused on the notion that the family is a system and that no one is to blame for the conflicts within the family, but rather it is the interactional patterns between the family members which may need to be changed. Therefore, I help the individual, couple, or family facilitate changes and solutions to achieve a different reality than what is currently being experienced. Psychotherapy can be utilized by an individual seeking solutions for desired change where there may be barriers or a feeling of “being stuck” is preventing a preferred outcome. Alternatively, psychotherapy can also be utilized by a couple wanting to work on their relationship, or by a whole family with relational issues throughout the family unit. Some of the approaches I utilize are Narrative Therapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Psychodynamic Therapy, Experiential Therapy, Solution-Focused Therapy, Structural Therapy, Intergenerational Therapy, Contextual Therapy, and EFT

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

Being a psychotherapist means it is a privilege to be a part of people’s emotional lives in times of distress. I am afforded the opportunity to be in people’s lives during the lowest, most frightening, and darkest emotional experiences they have ever had. There are many aspects to this experience which are very touching to me as a therapist attempting to move the individual or family through the healing process. The bravest people in this world are those who have the courage to reveal their pain and make the difficult decision to work towards healing. My mission is to be compassionate while also being committed to providing individuals, couples, and families the education, tools, accountability, and strategies they need to change their lives.
