Notice: I am available for phone and video sessions specifically to offer support during this uncertain time.

Offering psychotherapy for adults, couples, children, adolescents and families. Specializing in anxiety, depression, life transitions, divorce, self-esteem issues, co-parenting, disruptive behaviors in children and play therapy.

How is going to therapy different from talking to a close friend or a loved one? My focus is your (and your family’s) health and happiness; there is no other agenda. Therapy can offer guidance to access your own wisdom and unique gifts for solving the challenges you are currently facing.

Parenting Challenges

Do you have a child with behavior problems? Have you tried setting limits and boundaries with minimal success? I have found that using a compassionate, creative and flexible approach to the complexities of parenting can result in improved behaviors and responsiveness in children. Let me help reduce your frustrations and increase the enjoyment of your family life.


Helping kids dealing with divorce in their families with play therapy techniques and activities in a safe and supportive environment. The focus of the session will be on the following issues:

Help with Co-parenting after separation and divorce

A major stressor for children is persistent conflict between parents following divorce. Because children can be caught in the middle of post-divorce conflict for years, parents need to understand how their behavior impacts children following a divorce and strive to work together to shelter them from behaviors that can negatively impact the adjustment of the entire family for years to come.

Benefits of an amicable co-parenting relationship for your children:

What Is Play Therapy?

Play therapy utilizes play, children's natural medium of expression, to help them express their feelings more easily through toys instead of words. Throughout their lives, most children go through difficult times, such as the divorce of their parents, trouble making friends, or adjusting to changes at school or home. Some children need more help than others to get through these times. If you or other adults in your child's life are concerned about your child's behavior, play therapy can help. It is the most appropriate treatment for helping your child work through difficult times and helping you gain a better understanding of what your child is going through.

Toys are carefully selected for the play therapy room to facilitate creative and emotional expression from children. The types of toys used can be played with in many ways and therefore allow for decision-making in children. Play therapy allows them to express themselves in the way in which they are most comfortable.
