Along with individual therapy for adults, I offer therapy to teens and couples.
The partnership between two individuals, regardless of marriage or civil union, is a bond that includes more than the two who chose it. Each of us brings our families, history and ways of doing things into the relationship. While exciting, this coming together can have some natural tension. Are you feeling that your relationship could be stronger? Are the same old communication patterns causing distress in your marriage?
Are you considering a separation or a divorce - or trying to avoid one - and need couples counseling to ease the strain on your relationship? Are you dealing with infidelity,loneliness, boredom, or lack of intimacy in your relationship and want to take some time together to make it better? Is your partner distracted? Are you talking to each other without really hearing?
I can provide a non-judgmental environment where you and your partner can safely explore greater communication and honesty. Both partners' views will be heard and respected as we work together. See the News tab for practical information about your relationship and divorce.
Is your teen struggling with pressures from his school work, friends or the demands of technology and social media? Is isolation, anxiety, anger or depression an issue? Do you question why he is spending so much time alone? Or why your once close relationship has evaporated? Do you wonder if your teen is involved in risky behaviors? Teens need a place where they can be open about their lives without judgment or censorship. Anxiety and worry, depression and the pressures to succeed can make a modern teen feel like he or she will never be enough. I will work with your teen to help him or her uncover what is bothering them and help them see their personal strength and resiliency.
Confidentiality is a high priority when working with teens, and while I will speak with parents in a general way about progress, it is very important to me that my teen clients feel that their confidentiality will be respected.
My client centered approach means that I meet the client- teen, adult or couple, where he or she is and through careful and attentive listening help guide him or her to a more self-aware life. I treat all my clients with the same respect regardless of age, gender, race or sexual orientation.
