I have over 25 years of experience providing counseling and therapy for individuals, couples, and families going through divorce and/or are involved in difficult custody litigation. I also provide parent coordination and reunification therapy.
I have 30 years of experience working with children and adolescents and worked in the juvenile and domestic relations courts for almost 20 years.
I take a very holistic approach that emphasizes mind-body wellness to help clients get relief from the symptoms of depression. At the same time, I work collaboratively with clients to better understand and address the problems and concerns that are causing their unhappiness.
I have been using this modality with children, adolescents, and adults for almost 20 years and find that it complements both play therapy and traditional talk therapy by providing a rich and powerful means of self-expression and exploration of significant issues.
I am a seasoned child therapist who has worked with children in play therapy for almost 30 years. I use art, structured and unstructured play, and therapeutic games.
I integrate a variety of approaches and techniques in my work (especially cognitive-behavioral, psychodynamic, family systems, mindfulness), individualizing therapy for each client.
I teach clients practical skills for managing and reducing anxiety while also helping clients better understand the issues that are causing the anxiety in the first place.
