For over 30 years, I have worked to bring healing to people of all ages as they work to overcome their life challenges. I provide individual and family therapy to ages 12 and older. My specialties are the treatment of anxiety and depression, women’s issues, life transition issues, relationship issues, and parenting challenges. I am a Certified Integrative Mental Health Practitioner and focus on treatment from a more holistic approach. I incorporate body work as an approach to help create mind/body healing. I especially enjoy working with highly sensitive persons (HSP) and have specialized training in psychotherapy with this population. I am approved as a HSP-knowledgeable therapist by Elaine Aron, a pioneer in the study of high sensitivity. http://www.hsperson.com
