Couples / Families / Individuals / Children

"I felt safe.", is often the feedback I receive at the conclusion of a therapeutic relationship with a client. 

This is a primary objective in my work with clients, as it is the trust and comfort that clients feel with a therapist that allows them to move toward often uncomfortable issues. I work with clients to build on self awareness from a strengths based perspective, with an eye toward understanding and accepting the realities of life situations/relationships, and identifying what can be changed to better their situation.

My professional experience and interests include working with clients with a wide range of concerns, including depression, anxiety, relationship issues, addiction/co-addiction, and play therapy with children with life adjustment concerns or trauma.

Treatment Approach 
A Lakeville Family Therapy, my approach with clients varies to meet the needs and learning style of the individuals that come to me for services. It is my belief that the therapeutic relationship is the cornerstone in knowing the direction of our work together. The more I get to know you, the greater my sense of direction for the work. With that said, most of my work is informed by these theoretical approaches:

-Psychodynamic Theories
-Cognitive Behavioral Therapy
-Relational Therapy
-Experiential Play Therapy
-Interpersonal Therapy
-Family Systems Theory
