My specific area of practices is as a Marriage and Family therapist but over the years of working mental health my interests clinically have broadened. Particularily, I work in the areas of life transitions, relationship issues, trauma, personal guilt and shame, career stress, codependency, numbing behaviors, panic disorder, self esteem, and sexual abuse. In my practice I see Adults, adolescents, and children down to age 6.
I have spent much of my clinical time also as a Dialectical Behavior Therapist and enjoy working with Personality Disorders. With Families and couples I use a family systems and cognitive behavioral therapy approach. In therapy I strive to increase positive coping skills with my clients to help them live a more healthy effective life.
