My training/experience in attachment theory, family systems, motivational interviewing, and mindfulness practices support successful trauma-informed treatment to address family disruption/conflict, couples issues, young adults struggling to launch, dual-diagnosis complexities, adoption-related issues, addiction, divorce, grief/loss, and impact of Covid-19.
My clinical approach to healing is humanistic, client-centered, and attachment-focused. I facilitate connection through emotional attunement, curiosity, and empathy that is predicated on non-judgement through a strengths-based lens. The therapeutic alliance is co-constructed collaboratively with individuals/couples/families who wish to do meaningful reparative work around deep unresolved material that can keep a system "stuck" in a feedback loop of historical pattern replication that is no longer effective or has become unmanageable. Clinical focus excavates these maladaptive mechanisms to install and achieve growth-mindset goals.

I work alongside individuals and couples to assist them with trauma, grief, life transitions, depression, anxiety, fertility, family building, adoption, and third party reproduction.
If you are considering therapy, you have taken the first step toward making a positive change. It takes courage to seek support and talking with someone can help. When we experience painful events, feel our life’s plan has been taken out of our control, and experience disconnect in our relationships, we can feel hopeless, alone and lost. However, I believe that, through life’s challenges, we can learn how strong we truly are.

I have experience treating children and adolescents with a variety of concerns, including behavioral issues, trauma, attention disorders (ADHD), adjustment disorder, issues related to adoption, obsessive-compulsive disorder, grief, generalized anxiety, separation anxiety and depression.
Is your child experiencing problems at school, difficulty making or keeping friends, tantrums, constant worrying or nightmares? I have a passion for working with children and families, and I'm here to help. There is so much pressure today to be a "perfect" parent, and admitting that you need support can be difficult. My goal is to create a safe space for you and your child to work together to problem-solve and get through challenging times.

You think you're handling things, but then somewhere along the way, you've lost your grip. You can't sleep, you can't calm yourself down, and it seems like everyday stress deeply impacts you. You've tried but you can't reason with your thoughts. You know they're dark, or dramatic, or too anxious, but you can't seem to stop the cycle. Maybe it's impacting you internally only. Maybe it's affecting your work. Maybe you're losing friendships or relationships because of the emotions that take over so easily. It's exhausting. Whatever the case, you know it's time for help. Surely somebody knows the way out of this mess.

First comes love, then comes marriage, maybe some kids, then what?! The fairytale is complete, you have successfully become an adult, met your partner and settled down. Early in your relationship you would wake up with a spark for life and excitement to build your future with the one you love. Today feels different. You wake up at 3am and find yourself sleeping next to this person you barely recognize. Intimacy, sex, physical connection are ghosts of the passion that was once there.

Does the distance between you feel unbearable at times? Perhaps you can't find the will or the courage to draw near your partner. Resentment and distrust may have widened the gap. Though reactive fights stand in the way of the tenderness you need, your heartfelt friendship could be just below the surface. Hoping it will get better, we wait to get help, while patterns reinforce distance and a negative view of each other. We become less willing to reveal ourselves or seek comfort and friendship from our most important person. You both really deserve your measure of happiness.

All of life's unknowns can be terrifying, but everything you want for yourself to live your best life is on the other side of fear. Often it requires us to be much more compassionate with ourselves on our way towards growth. Compassion to recognize that growth takes time and moving from point A to Z doesn’t happen overnight. Change is clearly not easy. If it were there would be no need for anyone’s assistance as we grow and change. When we distract ourselves in any way, such as with tv, cleaning, alcohol, or any other means of checking out, we are in a state of avoidance.

It is a unique relationship, where ideally, you can be in a safe, empathic environment and talk to someone with in depth psychological training and significant life experience. I offer both to my clients, treating individuals, couples, children, adolescents and families. These relationships have led me to focus on the treatment of: anxiety, depression, relational communications, work place stressors, substance use/abuse, attachment disorders, emotional regulation issues, self image, family systems, ADHD, grief and loss, parenting, obsessive/compulsive behaviors, impulse control, mood disorders and relational conflicts.
