Welcome to my website!
We all hope to find what is adorably portrayed in the picture to the left: balance, peace, and contentment. The decision to enter therapy is a brave step in that directon. In today's hectic world of sometimes too many comings and goings, it can be so easy to lose ourselves. Similarly, our children face the same challenges in this day and age. Teenagers especially are exposed to such a different world than we grew up in, that we can flounder in our parenting while trying to help them succeed and grow. You're definitely not alone, and it is not so unusual to need a little help now and then. Remember the old saying: "It takes a village to raise a child"? Today, more than ever, that is true.
I am a licensed psychologist who provides therapy and assessment services for adults, adolescents, and families. I specialize in psychotherapy for ages 11 and up, while testing and assessment services are offered for all ages - depending on the issues at hand. I have worked with many people, just like you, who have chosen to reach out and grasp the hand of another to gain a different understanding, insight, or just some "tools" to help them navigate the world and its challenges.
