Therapy Services

My overall approach to therapy is strongly informed by attachment theory and interpersonal neurobiology, which provide the science showing that all of us—babies, children, adults—are shaped by our experiences in close relationships. Love and caring, or neglect and harsh words, change our brains in infancy and throughout life. This means new relationships, for example with a loved one or with a caring therapist, can rewire our brains to change longstanding emotional and behavioral patterns. I strive to develop a relationship with each client that is different from past relationships, allowing for change and growth.

My work is also informed by a variety of evidence-based approaches, including cognitive behavioral therapy, parent-child interaction therapy, dialectical behavior therapy, and mindfulness based strategies. In session, I work directly with clients to build new coping skills and strategies for managing overwhelming situations.

Adult and Adolescent Therapy

Courage doesn't happen when you have all the answers. It happens when you are ready to face the questions you hvae been avoiding your whole life.
Sharon L. Adler
Individual therapy can be a place to identify and change unhealthy patterns that cause unhappiness and interfere in relationships. I believe change happens within the context of a new and different type of relationship, allowing you to experience your thoughts and feelings in a more integrated and less distressing way.

Family Therapy and Child-Parent Therapy

Often emotional and behavior difficulties for one member of a family cascade into problems throughout the family. Relationships between family members can be damaged, and everyone suffers.

When this happens, therapy for the whole family, or just a parent-child pair, is necessary to repair the relationships and return to loving and respectful family life.

Child Therapy

Individual therapy is sometimes necessary for children who are experiencing emotional and/or behavioral problems. Sometimes a child needs one person outside their family with whom they can explore their experiences, build coping skills, and resolve past traumas. When I work with children in individual therapy, I usually also see parents for separate sessions to keep them involved in the change process.

Prenatal/Postpartum Support

If you're experiencing overwhelming feelings of sadness, anxiety, anger, or are having trouble getting through the days and nights of pregnancy or with a new baby, you deserve help and support. Prenatal and postpartum mood disorders go beyond the "baby blues" and can disrupt more than just your own functioning—they also impact your baby.

I help to identify and rally your support team, whether that's a spouse, family members, friends, or other mental health providers. We will work together to make sure you, your baby, and your spouse and other children, are able to recover from this genuine medical issue to fully enjoy happy, busy, chaotic days (and sleepless nights).
