Currently, I have a private practice Balance Psychotherapy and Energy Wellness,
where I see children, adolescents, and adults. I treat people individually, in couples,and as families. My treatment approach is holistic, with a blend of traditional and complentary therapies incorportated. My approach is one of honoring an individual as to where they are in their life path,and where they wish to be. Collaborately, we work together to assist in negotiating life transition issues, challenges and opportunities in order to achieve a balance in one's life. My areas of treatment include anxiety, depression, trauma, school behavioral issues, grief and loss, domestic violence,relationship issues, life transition issues,recovery, LGBT,and gender identity.
