I work with teenagers who have difficulty dealing with pressures at school, in the home, and in their social networks. They often benefit from a combination of individual and family therapy. I am a specialist in Disorders of Childhood and Adolescence.
I have a solid track record of success with couples; this is due to my emphasis upon the improvement of communication. I employ methods in-session which become tools that couples can use at home and which usually result in rapid and positive change.
I specialize in the treatment of anxiety. I use proven, evidence-based methods for taking control of runaway thoughts and feelings. People can become trapped by the looming fear and anxiety that can come with normal changes in health or welfare that can be compounded by extra challenges. Small fears can snowball into larger ones due to our tendency to generalize and become sensitized to things. A reprimand from a supervisor can turn into a whirlpool of “what-if’s” and sleepless nights. A minor dog bite on the street can evolve into being homebound and unable to leave the house.
It can seem that life is constantly throwing us curve-balls, presenting challenges and dilemmas on a daily basis. It's almost impossible to avoid the pain or devastation that comes with the loss of loved ones. We can forget that loss can also include a job, one’s former attractiveness, stamina, or health. Losses and sadness can accumulate and contribute to frustration and anger. I have learned that most angry people started out being disappointed and sad.
I can help you get a handle on where your challenges and strengths really lie, and I can work with you to get your life journey back on track. That means surpassing the grief, anxiety, or confusion which can hold you back.
