I work with children, adolescents and adults in individual, group, family, and marriage counseling settings. My treatment techniques take into account the unique qualities of each person. While my therapeutic approach is largely eclectic, I tend to emphasize Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT) techniques to help my clients develop self awareness and to help them understand how their emotions, beliefs and thoughts contribute to the behaviors and situations that are causing them unhappiness. I help guide them to change negative thoughts and life long habits into new and positive beliefs, thereby helping to increase their success in meeting goals and enjoying life.

My specialties include:
Anxiety and Stress
Relationship Issues
Couples/Marriage Counseling
Self-Esteem Issues
Social Skills Development
Support Groups
Parenting Skills
Resource and Referral
Education about Autism
IEP Coaching
Skills for Advocacy

Group Offerings:

Parent Support Group – For parents of children on the autism spectrum.The focus is to bond with others going through similar situations and share ideas, information and feelings about everyday life with a challenging child. Topics may include dealing with grief; CPSE and CSE meetings; handling family, friends and school; transitioning; and finding resources.

Social Skills Group – For boys and girls with social difficulties including AD/HD, Asperger's Syndrome, Autism, and other Pervasive Developmental Disabilities.

The focus is to enhance social skills development within a recreational format. This group is modeled after a "social club" and is for those looking to meet friends and practice skills in a relaxed and friendly forum. These teens already have a basic understanding of social rules and need a supervised forum to apply these skills and receive feedback. Often their awareness of their own shortcomings is not where it needs to be. Through discussion, role-play and interactive games, the group will learn and practice conversational skills, nonverbal skills, and friendship skills. Particular "social or emotional problems" such as bullying, or dealing with anger, will be addressed depending on the needs of the group.
