Family Focused Counseling “I believe in the power of counseling to help all family members…change their lives for the better.”

Together We Solve Problems

There are times in our lives when we face problems that seem to overwhelm us with stress, worry and discontent. These can include the emotional challenges of anger, anxiety, and depression; the practical challenges of troubles at home, at work, or at school; and the destabilizing challenges of a life-changing event such as a death, a divorce, or a difficult transition.

I work with all members of the family – children, adolescents, and adults – to make sense of these problems and to find satisfying solutions. In the process, I often help people resolve a different kind of problem that can complicate all the rest: breakdowns in their most important relationships, especially those between parent and child, partner and partner, adult and elder, self and self.

Counseling Goals

My aim is to help families address problems in ways that lead them to cope more effectively, relate more positively, and live more joyfully. My services include counseling for young people, parent consultations, and adult therapy for individuals and couples. I have specialized expertise in helping children, adolescents, and adults to overcome the obstacles presented by Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder, ADHD.


I believe in the innate resilience of families. I believe in the commitment of parents to nurturing their children and supporting each other. And I believe in the power of counseling to help all family members access their innermost selves, openly share their thoughts and emotions, confront their most worrisome problems, and change their lives for the better.
