Utilizing cognitive-behavioral, solution-focused and strength-based interventions, I work together with individuals of all ages to help them develop the skills they need to optimize their lives and target an overall well being. In my practice, I focus on helping people identify their areas of strength and then use those strengths to target the challenges with which they are struggling. Whether you are a child, adolescent or adult, everyone needs tools, tips and strategies to cope with life’s hurdles. It would be my pleasure to join you on your journey to health and happiness.
Individuals inquire about receiving therapy for a number of reasons. Whether you are looking for guidance and support through a difficult life transition or experiencing challenges with depression or anxiety, we can work together to build a treatment plan that will best suit your needs. In my practice, I engage in Short Term (8-12 sessions), Long Term and Maintenance Therapy with children, adolescents and adults.
Parent Coaching & Training
Several words come to mind when one thinks of parenting, but “easy” is not one of them. Parenting is one of the most important jobs and complex interpersonal relationships in existence. Every parent struggles from one time to another with his or her children. The good news is that an outside perspective can often give parents the support needed to conquer the current hurdle. Parent Coaching/Training helps parents learn the skills needed to manage a variety of behavioral and emotional challenges. Through the right strategies and techniques, parents can help their children get back on the right track, reach their potential and function together more effectively.
Family & Sibling Therapy
Parents and children don’t always see eye to eye. One of the most common complaints that I hear from parents is that their children just don’t seem to listen. Not surprisingly, children tend to report that there is too much yelling/nagging/bossing around. Family therapy helps all members of the family learn stronger and more effective communication skills as well as more effective ways to have their needs met.
Couples Counseling & Coaching
Having a partner can be one of the most wonderful relationships in the world. However, it can also be one of the most challenging. I work with couples to strengthen their communication skills, engage in productive conflict resolution and learn to set expectations in appropriate ways.
In today’s on-the-go world, scheduling the time to come to the office for an appointment often adds a barrier to individuals and families getting the help they need. In order to make my services more accessible to the modern day family, I offer virtual coaching. Unlike ongoing individual or family therapy, this service is meant to target specific challenges which can be addressed in a few video sessions. I will assist you to identify the specific problem and develop strategies to target this issue. These video sessions are available as a virtual coaching package of three. Please contact me for details.
Parent Education & Workshops
From parent education lectures to small groups with children or adults, I will work with you to build a custom workshop that best meets your needs. Please contact me to discuss how my services can be presented at your school, organization or private event.
Many schools require cognitive/intellectual assessment of their applicants prior to admittance. If you are interested in having your child’s learning profile assessed for school admission, please contact me for more information.
