My Approach

For over 20 years I have enjoyed working with children, adolescents, and adults to improve relationships, change behaviors, and to feel better about themselves. 

My approach is integrative, drawing from my training and experience in a variety of approaches including: play therapy, sand tray therapy, cognitive behavioral, and solution focused therapy.


Everyone’s needs are unique. As a practicing therapist with more than 20 years of experience I have expertise in a number of therapy types. I will assess your individual situation and goals and develop an approach that is appropriate for you. Typical issues I can help you address include:

  • Adjustment Disorder
  • Anxiety Disorders/Phobias
  • Behavior Issues
  • Depression
  • Grief/Loss
  • Life Transitions
  • Parenting 
  • Personal Growth
  • Self-esteem
