Experienced clinical child, teen, and adult therapist working with individuals and families with mental health issues across the lifespan.

I am a relationship-based dynamically informed therapist with 25 years of experience helping children, teens, and adults find powerful means to shift their internal narratives, enhance their choices, and challenge their internal experiences both past and present in order to create more possibilities for the future. Whether trying to understand what happened on the playground today, yesterday, twenty years ago, or struggling with how to move forward on a difficult path, we talk through these circumstances with an ear for the contexts that have formed or shape us. We learn to listen for our gut response, our inner wisdom and natural strengths, and resilience. We use the scientific knowledge about the body and the mind and how the one impacts the other based on our experience and wiring to develop positive strategies for balancing our responses to what the external world brings us.
