Professional Interests and Specialties:
Across the lifespan, we encounter stressors of all kinds. Our moods, anxiety levels, thinking, and behaviors can depend on how well we are able to manage these stressors over time. Sometimes, regardless of our age, the coping skills we've learned and developed let us down. Utilizing a primarily psychodynamic approach, my goal in therapy is to help you experience your life (including the good and bad aspects) in a real and authentic way, grounded in self-awareness and insight, so that you are in better control of your moods, anxiety, thinking, and behavior.
With children I utilize play therapy, which can help children gain awareness, feel understood and empowered, resolve ongoing developmental dilemmas, and work toward individuation and healthy development. With adolescents and adults, I provide talk therapy that can be highly helpful in either an exploratory or supportive fashion.
Clinical interests of mine include children of abuse neglect, children of divorce or other family conflict, adolescents and identity development, men's issues, veterans and their families, and religious/spiritual problems. I am available for diagnostic consultations as well as parenting support. I am skilled at psychological assessment as well, and I am able to provide comprehensive evaluations for children and adolescents, measuring intellectual, behavioral, emotional, and personality functioning.
