With over 20 years experience as a marriage and family therapist, I work with a broad spectrum of clients. Among my areas of expertise are working with young adults from middle school through college on both psychiatric and environmental difficulties. In addition, I also see couples for marital therapy and other types of relationship and family issues.
I am a clinical member of the American Association of Marriage and Family Therapy. I am certified as a Connecticut Divorce Mediator and also hold a certification in Accelerated Resolution Therapy (ART).
I am an interactive, solution-focused therapist. My therapeutic approach is to provide support and practical feedback to help my clients effectively address personal life challenges. I integrate complementary methodologies and techniques to offer a highly personalized approach tailored to each client. With compassion and understanding, I work with each individual to help them build on their strengths and attain the personal growth they are committed to accomplishing.
