In my practice, I provide the following services:
- individual therapy (adults, children, and adolescents)
- family therapy
- couple’s therapy
As a therapist, I believe that everyone is capable of creating the change that they need to feel and live better. I support the theory that every person has strengths and weaknesses and I focus on recognizing and understanding individual strengths that can be capitalized upon to resolve immediate problems and address issues that recur or persist. As a therapist, I tend to be more active than passive.
I can help you with everyday problems and problems that have been ongoing. The goal of your therapy will be unique to you. I strive to help clients heal from depression, anxiety, trauma and relationship issues. You can expect that I will listen to you and support you as you move through the therapeutic process.
Often, couples come into therapy to address a particular issue of concern. In couple’s therapy, I will help you and your partner improve your communication so that you can address and resolve the issues that are of concern to both of you. At the center of couple’s therapy is the wish to help you strengthen your relationship and relate with each other in a healthy, productive manner.
I have extensive experience working with children and their families that come to therapy for a variety of reasons. Parents are often an active part of therapy with children.
I enjoy working with families and children who are involved with or have been involved with foster care and adoption. I have found that working with children who experience difficulty with attachment issues or have been diagnosed with Reactive Attachment Disorder is extremely rewarding. I help instill hope for families experiencing challenging behaviors that can be a part of the adoption process.

I serve as a behavioral and mental health consultant to area preschools. I help schools identify and implement strategies to help young children succeed in their learning environment as well as provide individual observations and recommendations. I also provide training to Connecticut area teachers on a variety of topics.
Currently, I accept Connecticut’s Husky insurance. I am an out of network provider for many other insurance companies and will be happy to provide you with a statement of professional services that you can submit to your insurance carrier.
