I offer co-parenting counseling services to help couples who are in the process of a divorce who want to do what is best for their child and/or children and help them understand that the divorce is not their fault.

I provide therapy interventions to children, adolescents, adults, couples and families using a variety of treatment modalities: brief therapy, reality therapy, play therapy for children, solution-focused therapy, cognitive-behavioral therapy, EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing), and family/marital and relational therapies.
