Individual Therapy


I empower individuals (children, adolescents, teens and adults), couples and families to live a meaningful life by connecting to their values and being their best selves.

My training and experience cover a wide range of areas including health, weight loss/weight management and general wellness, social skills/socialization, interpersonal relationships, anxiety, depression, trauma, anger management, assertiveness training, marital issues, parenting and child development and work/career related issues.

I am a consultant and trainer and often present at conferences and publish in my areas of specialty. I am also currently engaged in research and writing on the topics of overeating, weight loss and lifelong weight management for kids, teens, young adults, and adults. I am also conducting research on adult and young adult socialization and the acquisition of social skills. My approach to psychotherapy is based in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, Family System and Relational models.

+I use a mindfulness based approach to working with my clients.

+I am an actively engaged interactive therapist and am passionate about the work I do. I thoroughly enjoy working with others to improve their quality of life so that they live life meaningfully.
