Do you feel overwhelmed, not knowing how to balance your life and inner longings? Maybe you have resorted to coping skills that are no longer working or are even harming you. And maybe you are dreaming of getting your Self back by finding more meaning, purpose, and joy in your life. Sometimes a little outside guidance can shift our perspective and we can learn effective tools to help us thrive again. I love to help with: Anxiety disorders (including emetophobia), relationship solutions, women's issues, pre/postnatal concerns, women's health, peri/menopause, and parenting solutions.

My specialties include mindfulness based practices drawn from the field of Interpersonal Neurobiology, as well as a framework for mindful parenting I developed called AWARE parenting .
If you are looking to alter your patterns of behavior, to strengthen relationships, or a parent in need of proven strategies to promote healthy behavior in your children, I can help. Therapy doesn't have to be long term. It is simply an opportunity for someone to help you begin the process of change. I'd love to hear more from you about what you would like to leave behind and what you would like to call forward into your life.

My therapy services help you feel happier and more confident in your life, your parenting , and your relationships by giving you the support you need and guidance to overcome feelings of inadequacy, anxiety, and negative thinking patterns.
You can feel happier in your life and your relationships. I work with individuals that may be struggling with anxiety, depression, and stress. Anxiety can be all-encompassing and easily take over your life. You can learn to better manage it and develop helpful tools. I'm also passionate about supporting moms through the postpartum time and throughout their parenting . Motherhood can feel overwhelming at times and it's so easy to lose track of yourself. Therapy is a great outlet to explore all your feelings and get back in touch with who you are and who you want to be.

Some of my areas of expertise include: anxiety, ADHD, OCD, depression, trauma, family dynamics, life transitions, marital issues, divorce, and co- parenting .
Working through difficult experiences and emotions can be challenging. It can be even harder to make desired changes in ones life when certain patterns have been established for so long. I work hard to ensure that my clients feel safe and supported throughout this process. By creating a comfortable and lighthearted environment, individuals, families, and couples are able to gain some reprieve from the difficulties they are experiencing. This allows change to begin to occur in the lives of my clients.

I also supports couple relationship, parenting , immigration, military and student life.
I believe we all have resilience. Our life may not come with a map, and we experience daily challenges to traumatic events with more lasting impact, like the death of a loved one, a life-altering accident, or a serious illness. Each change affects us differently, bringing a flood of thoughts, strong emotions and uncertainty. Yet we generally adapt well over time to stressful life-changing situations. We may end up feeling stuck or alone, struggling with anxious feelings, sadness, guilt or pain. I will meet you in these difficult places and we will walk together, helping you break through to find hope, power, connection and energy.

It can be scary to not know where to turn or what to do next, but I am here to help you in your role as a parent guide your child to a happier and healthier life.
It is a helpless feeling when your child is struggling and you don't know how to help them. This pandemic has created a totally new and unexplored environment for our children. I am here to help both you and your child through this difficult time. I work solely with children from birth to 17 years old. I meet my clients where they are by creating a safe and fun space for them so that they feel comfortable talking about tough subjects and facilitating change. I believe that in working with children you must also incorporate their family and I encourage family involvement in all of my treatments.
