I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker and Licensed School Psychologist. I have extensive postgraduate training in areas including the treatment of anxiety and depression, meeting the needs of children and adults with ADHD/LD and their families, play therapy, work with addictions, therapy with troubled teens, and recovery from trauma.
I provide services to clients with a wide range of backgrounds, beliefs, and treatment issues. I often draw upon empirically based treatment modalities, such as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Gestalt Psychotherapy (GP), and Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT). For couples work I'm trained in Imago Therapy and Gottman Therapy. While brief solution focused therapy (8 to 20 sessions) is often sufficient to help clients resolve specific issues, I also offer long-term therapy for clients seeking insight and clarity regarding identity and interpersonal relationships.
