Individual 

Psychotherapy

We all have blind spots, and at times these blind spots can cause us frustration and suffering. Entering into therapy gives us the tools we need to see  into these blind spots when our conscious attitude might have us fixated in an unhelpful direction. I have been trained and mentored in the traditions of Depth Psychology, primarily of Carl Jung, and incorporate existential and phenomenological perspectives, as well as clinical applications of neuroscience and attachment theory. I work with people from all walks of life who are struggling with a loss of meaning, confusion about one's place in the world and spiritual stagnation. This could manifest in hopelessness about one's career, a so-called quarter life crises, or feeling stuck in a relationship, too frozen to make a change. I will tailor my approach based on your needs and the goals that emerge from our exploration together--therapy can be long term or very brief. I am dedicated to making our time together as effective and efficient as possible. 

All of us, no matter where we are in life, began our human existence in some form of a family. Families are systems with relationship dynamics that effect every individual in the system. Family therapy has been shown to be one of the most effective modalities for treating behaviors in children, and can lead to lasting levels of change, as it addresses the underlying source of the behaviors. Family therapy proceeds experientially, involving each individual in a new experience of relationship that reduces stress and leaves the family with increased understanding and more resources for love and empathy.

Adolescents

I treat children and adolescents for a broad range of behavioral issues and developmental stresses. I believe in the human psyche's ability to self-heal, when given the proper circumstances. My approach can be effective when parents feel that they have already tried everything, from behavioral charts, to rewards and punishments, to all kinds of therapy and medication. I also consult with schools and other out of home settings, and can provide in-home and community based behavioral assessments, as well as support for parents at IEP meetings.   

Since 2010 I have provided therapy for children and families involved in the Adoption process. All members of the adoption triad--the adoptive family, the adopted person and the biological family--create a unique family system that involves great bravery, love and patience from all involved. Whether it is perplexing behavioral challenges with adopted children, increasing stress, feelings of anger and fear, older adoptees contemplating a search, or unresolved grief in a biological parent, my practice is a home for you to find healing for yourself and your family.
