I offer both brief and long term counseling, depending on the issues presented and the client's needs, resources and preferences. I prefer to be seen as an ongoing resource, similar to a family doctor, where it is comfortable to come as long as needed to resolve an issue, and return later if other issues or needs arise.
I see clients of all ages, including children ages 5 and up. I do individual, couples and family counseling.
I am trained to treat the following presenting problems:
~ childhood physical or sexual trauma
~ dissociative disorders
~ parenting challenging children
~ marital problems
~ pre-marital coaching
~ divorce transition issues
~ couples issues, including with gay/lesbian couples
- dealing with cancer
~ life transitions
