Do you wish therapy stopped focusing on what was wrong and started to answer what can we do about this?  In my private practice, I take an approach that is short-term and focused on solutions and strengths.  I believe in helping clients find the skills that will work for them so that they are able to confidently transition out of therapy and positively manage their symptoms and relationships on their own.   My areas of expertise include anxiety and mood disorders in children, working with new mothers around adjusting to their new role and managing their emotions, and the challenges of parents and families especially around power struggles and stress.

Having trouble staying motivated?  Having trouble setting and accomplishing your personal goals?  Then life coaching may be for you.  In my practice, I offer personal coaching services to individuals who wish to maximize their life potential.  Coaching is a supportive, goal-oriented method that is different from traditional therapy.  It is focused on the future, and through structure and feedback, clients take action to realize their own visions and desires.  My focus in this area is with individual adults, parents, new mothers, and stay-at-home mothers returning to the workforce.
