I help others address the underlying concerns, patterns, choices that may be contributing to those feeling stuck in repetitive seemingly familiar situations that they find personally undesirable. I assist with fostering growth and facilitating change through various avenues such as skill building that may contribute to problem resolution.
I utilize different treatment methods including but not limited to cognitive and behavioral therapy, behavior modification, dialectical behavioral techniques and play therapy.
I offer evening and daytime appointments to help with meeting your scheduling needs.
I have also presented to general, academic and professional audiences speaking on the topics of:
Dialectical Behavior Techniques
A parent's guide to navigating the I.E.P. process
Multi Cultural Awareness
I have provided legal expert testimony addressing mental health needs within special education settings.
My therapeutic approach is to provide support and practical feedback to help clients effectively address personal life challenges.
