I am a certified Gestalt therapist, educator and coach who has worked with adolescents and their parents over for the past 18 years. I am passionate about helping teens, their parents, and couples create vibrant relationships that lead to healthy families. I bring a sense of clarity, strength and hope to situations where people feel stuck.
My unique background of high school classroom teaching, private practice psychotherapy, and leading various personal development groups has given me an intimate understanding of the struggle that parents, teenagers and couples are experiencing as they navigate their relationships.
I get adolescents. I understand their struggles and their joys, their genius and their blind spots. I’ve experienced first hand the way they can surprise us with their moments of incredible insight and their stubbornness when they are trying to find their place in the world. I have helped many moms and dads build a solid relationship with their kids and navigate the ups and downs of the teenage years to set the foundation for a great lifelong connection.
I have degrees from Oberlin College and the University of Dayton, where I received a Masters in Clinical Counseling. I’ve trained extensively in Gestalt Therapy and Process with both the Gestalt Institute of Central Ohio and Gestalt Associates Training Los Angeles. I am committed to my own personal and professional growth to make my work as a therapist and coach effective.
