I work with clients of diverse cultural backgrounds and sexual orientations:

  • Individuals (men and women)
  • Children
  • Teenagers
  • Families       
  • Couples
  • Groups

My theoretical orientation is an eclectic approach that blends and combines many modalities and techniques. My focus of attention in every session is client-centered and strength-based which means we will start where you are and continuously utilize your wisdom and expereince to create the bridge to growth and change. I welcome feedback and collaboration in creating a safe and confidential space that will assist you as we  discover resources and tools to help you. Some of the theoretical modalities I use are:


  • Attachment
  • Family Systems
  • Humanistic/Existential
  • Mindfulness
  • Somatic
  • Experiential
  • Cognitive Behavioral (CBT)
  • Solution Focused Brief Therapy

Areas of treatment focus include (but are not limited to): 

  • Addictions
  • Abuse (Survivors)
  • Effects of Trauma/ PTSD
  • Domestic Violence
  • Anxiety/Depression
  • Couples Counseling
  • Parenting Concerns and Skills
  • Pregnancy/Child Birth
