Coaching - Now accepting international clients!
Psychotherapy can be conducted using many different models. The psychotherapy for each individual will reflect their personal needs. The basis for good therapy begins with the relationship between patient and therapist. This professional relationship includes healthy boundaries and sincere caring. I allow the relationship formed through the psychotherapy process to shape the treatment. An exceptional relationship between therapist and patient builds the essential foundation for success.
Through psychotherapy, many patients seek to improve confidence, mood, and success in relationships. This can include overall adjustment in the school or work place. Psychotherapy provides the individual with a means to achieve goals they may not have been able to find on their own. My practice includes adults, adolescents, and children.
Families in Conflict
Reunification within families
Through my years of working with children of various ages, it is often apparent that issues occurring within the family affect them. With divorce and the resulting conflict being stressful for all involved, it is often challenging to prioritize the well-being of the child. I provide many services for families experiencing divorce.
Divorce Education - There are developmental and psychological questions facing adults considering divorce. I have
extensive experience with divorce and the effects it has on the individuals involved. I can therefore advise them on the
emotional impact that their choices could have on themselves and others.
Collaborative Divorce/Child Specialist - I have completed collaborative
divorce training and can assist parents in the collaborative divorce process.
Co-Parenting Coordinator - I help parents maintain their ability to work
together in raising their children.
Conflict Manager/Parenting Coordinator - During or after the divorce, I can
help parents who continue to need help in resolving conflict related to parenting.
Family Consultation - As families are impacted by divorce, I assist them in
recreating a family structure.
Development of Parenting Plan Schedule - The development of the parenting
schedule is very challenging. My background in child development and my
work with school-aged children have given me a perspective that
is helpful to parents as they form a schedule that works for all involved.
I specialize in a psychodynamic approach and cognitive therapy. My background in developmental psychology provides a framework for conceptualizing how events in a person's past have affected their present functioning. Feelings and thoughts impact mood, adjustment, and anxiety. Integrating past experiences with coping strategies is critical in how individuals learn to deal with their present and future.
Processing problems have an impact on the ability to master the activities of school and life. ADHD, Executive Function Disorders, and learning disabilities are manageable with help and willingness to implement strategies.
