"As a solution-focused therapist, my goal is to help the person/parents/family find a more fulfilling life. While we can't change difficult situations (autism, aspergers, PDD, anxiety, mood issues, divorce), we can work together to better understand and resolve challenges. With individualized techniques, I help people change long-standing behavior patterns and negative perceptions. With parenting issues, I also help the parent to better understand the child, and to adjust parenting to fit the needs of the child. Unfortunately, parenting is not a "one size fits all" issue when addressing complex issues."
"If you're looking for extra support and guidance through a challenging situation or you're just ready to move in a new direction in your life, I look forward to working with you to achieve your goals." Tracy Hadel LSCSW
