With a psycho-educational and mindful parenting approach, we can gain better understanding of the both child’s inner experience and the adults’ experience as a parent, leading us to find new ways for the family to cope and grow together.
No matter how rewarding, being a parent can be extremely difficult. And amidst a global pandemic, support may be limited and anxieties high. Even in "normal" times, we can struggle to balance our needs with those of our children, to figure out how to discipline in a loving and effective way, and to help our kids develop and thrive. Through exploring one’s own childhood and relationships, a parent can better understand challenges surfacing around parenting, and achieve greater clarity and ownership in parenting decisions. My therapeutic approach helps parents work through challenges mindfully, with love and with confidence.

Working with adults of all generations, my aim is to connect with the reality of emotional pain and suffering that often accompanies our journey towards consciousness. I belief that one of the most important keys to a successful outcome of the therapeutic process is the compatibility between the two people involved, especially since the depths of psychological work can be painful, and a positive experience is very much dependent on the dynamic of this highly personal exchange. I am able to use various therapeutic modalities, with the added specialties of dream analysis, art therapy, and sandplay.

Some of these stressors are triggered when we break-up, begin a new relationship, start a new job, start at a new school. Some individuals need to be sat with and have a space held for them, some are looking for collaborative support and guidance on their life's struggles.

Life satisfaction hinges on the quality of past & current relationships because we grow in relationship with others. This is what therapy is all about. I work with adults, adolescents, college and transitional-aged clients to unearth the roots of inner distress, expand awareness, curiosity, energy and empowerment. Life is not rigid, it flexibly ebbs & flows. Growth, while scary demands a surrender of outdated beliefs and behaviors, leaving a familiar comfort zone. But guess what? You will not be alone.
