Couples Therapy

Couples therapy allows partners to understand each other more deeply, to air the ghosts of the past that limit us, to prepare for transitions such as marriage or the birth or adoption of a child, and to prevent current issues from becoming intractable patterns. At times, couples therapy provides a way to separate with kindness and respect. >> Learn More

Psychotherapy with Adolescents

Adolescents face a complicated and fast-paced world at a time when they experience enormous changes internally and externally. The challenges and feelings that are constantly in motion during this formative time can be hard to navigate and often create struggles with mood, school and behavior difficulties, and difficulties with self-image. Having a private place outside of home and school to talk through these concerns and changes can make all the difference in young adulthood. >> Learn More

Co-parenting and Divorce

In the life-changing decision to end a marriage, spouses and parents need practical and psychological support as they move toward becoming a post-divorce family. The emotional landscape has similar milestones but is unique to each person. The most real thing in a divorcing spouse’s life is the way they feel. The way you approach the tasks in your divorce will effect you, your spouse and your children far into the future.

In my practice as a divorce mediator, I am committed to ensuring that a couple come up with their solutions to the problems that need to be worked through for a dignified and respectful ending to a marriage.
