Welcome to our office!  Here it is possible for children and their parents to develop more rewarding styles of interactions; for teenagers and their parents to improve communications skills; for adults working individually to get in touch with their own needs and directions; for couples to find better ways of working together and resolving differences; and for mental health and educational professionals to extend their skills and knowledge about working with children and families.

Philosophy
People who consult us as clients are having some kind of struggle within themselves or between themselves and other people.  Sometimes it is necessary to bring together the various people involved (as in family therapy or school consultation), and sometimes it is better for a person to find his or her own way.  While each situation is different, the general approach we take is to:
 Define reasonable goals
 Utilize the clients' strengths
 Engage outside resources, if appropriate (e.g., school, family, or friends)
 Understand (when helpful) how present difficulties have their roots in past situations
 Work toward positive action to resolve struggles and reach goals
 Every effort is made to help clients work as quickly as possible to achieve meaningful change.

Frequently Addressed Concerns
People consult us about a variety of concerns, for example:
 anxiety
 depression
 adjustment problems (divorce, life transitions)
 behavior problems in children (overactivity, shyness, oppositionality)
Autism Spectrum Disorders
 personality problems
 developing bonds in adoptive and  stepfamilies
  marital difficulties
  making and keeping friends (for children  and  teens)
 consultation regarding school needs
 training and supervision in play therapy
