I work with individuals, couples, and families in conflict who wish to end cycles of anger, hurt, and mistrust, and replace them with an atmosphere of love, respect, and cooperation in their homes.
Most parenting advice is suitable for parents raising typically developing kids. If you have a challenging child or teen, conventional parenting approaches simply don’t work.
Child and Adolescent Psychotherapy
While parents rarely are the cause of a child’s struggles, they can play a vital role in solving these problems. As a result, I work extensively with parents, especially at the beginning of treatment.
The couples I work with typically come to me because they experience frequent miscommunication and misunderstandings that can escalate into angry, painful arguments and fights. Parenting is a frequent cause and contributor to these conflicts.
Individual Adult Psychotherapy
The adults I work with frequently come to me because they need help with relationships or parenting. I help them learn to understand their partner or children better and to learn more effective strategies for communication and conflict resolution.
