If you are finding yourself struggling, stuck, or feeling uncertain with life's challenges, therapy can be a powerful way to work through these difficulties. Whether you or your teen are adjusting to a life transition, experiencing relationship distress, managing an acute or chronic health condition, or wanting to better understand yourself and your patterns of relating to yourself and others, therapy helps to both identify the source of these struggles and provide ways to navigate them successfully. If you want to find ways to break unhelpful patterns that are limiting you and begin moving towards fulfillment, I can help.

*Telehealth/On line services* Is your child/ teen struggling socially, emotionally, behaviorally, or with difficult thoughts? As a parent, are you overwhelmed by all of the demands of being a parent? Does your youth have a difficult time making friends or communicating with others? Is your child highly sensitive? Some kids have a difficult time managing their emotions and it may result in tantrums, isolation, or other confusing behaviors. Parents share with me they want things to get better for their child/ teen and I help by providing support and guidance to help them to reach their goals.

I currently also work in an adolescent residential setting and train for UCLA.
Relationships are challenging - even in the best circumstances. This is certainly true when building or maintaining a relationship with someone who may feel stressed, sad, or acting out in anger. Many people today feel overwhelmed, alone, judged or misunderstood. There is hope, though, in that you can be the solution! Through a unique approach, I work with children, teenagers, and adults to develop their sense of selves, decrease stress, and establish rewarding relationships. Having this space has helped many people better understand and manage their lives.

If you are ready to explore the parts of your life that have been holding you back, or if your teenager is struggling with emotions and behaviors that seem out of control, I’m here to help. My clients tell me that they appreciate my direct and compassionate style, and kids and teens tell me they appreciate my sense of humor. I have been working in the helping profession for over a decade, and can help you in understanding how to talk to your child so they can hear you, in working with your teenager to navigate adolescence and young adulthood, or in discovering what is keeping you stuck in a rut instead of chasing your dreams.

If you are a teen or young adult who is struggling to find meaning and joy in your life, then I can help. Most clients I work with have been through some difficult experiences, and know in their heart that they can feel better than they do right now. Some experiment with alcohol and drugs to fix the problem, but it doesn't work. Whether you're feeling anxious, depressed, or stressed, I can help you sort through what the issues are, and how you can manage them in a way that lets you enjoy your life. I also have extensive experience helping adolescents work through traumatic experiences, so please reach out if that's you.

Is worrying waking you up at night? Does anxiety seem to sneak up on you when you least expect it, or make you feel like you can't live the life you yearn for? Are you tired of feeling so "frozen?" You're so much more than just your symptoms. Feeling anxious, frozen, or sad simply takes up too much energy that you could be using to feel happy, productive, and free. Isn't it time to get unstuck?

Are work or school stressors overshadowing other areas of life, like hobbies or friendships? Are you feeling anxious, restless, or depressed and can’t seem to pinpoint why? Are you having difficulty feeling confident in yourself? Perhaps you feel like you're juggling endless responsibilities with little time for yourself. These are all concerns that are regularly experienced by people, especially teens and college aged adults. Life can bring on many uncertainties, but one thing’s for sure: you’re ready for relief, balance, and to enjoy the little moments. Most of all, you're ready to find yourself again.

Do you ever struggle with feeling like you’re not enough? Do you feel like you have to prove yourself? Do you feel stuck and triggered by childhood trauma? The symptoms of trauma include anxiety, depression, high conflict relationships, occupational impairment, addiction, and much more. I believe therapy can help you develop a more self-awareness and actionable plan to alleviate these symptoms. I specialized in working with people who are willing to explore past, present, and future challenges and to find tools for personal growth.

Do you feel like you and your partner speak two different languages? Do you feel misunderstood, hurt and resentful, do you avoid conflict or get stuck in the same argument over and over? Reaching out for help doesn't mean that your relationship is beyond repair. It’s difficult to see your own unhelpful patterns when you are right in the middle of it. You can break the cycle and feel more connected and closer to your partner. You can learn how you can be yourself and be in a satisfying relationship. You can learn how to express your needs and be heard.

Welcome, I’m specialized and experienced in working with babies, children, adolescents and their families. I believe that the process of psychotherapy is a shared experience between a therapist and a client. We together will use therapy, to create a space where we can reflect on and understand your and your child’s emotional and mental states and connect these to behaviors and difficulties. This space eventually will lead you and your child to reorganize feelings, thoughts and behaviors. Understanding and awareness will give birth to change.

Relationships can be difficult to manage and maintain, and they can be a source of great discontentment. You are left wondering what happened, thinking "Why am I so lonely?" or "Why do I feel so distant from my partner?" Whether it is with an intimate partner, family members, friends, or even with yourself, relationships can leave you feeling unsettled, disconnected, stuck, and empty. Props to you for seeking out therapy! The fact that you are here shows that you want more fulfilling relationships and are willing to explore how to connect on a deeper level.

Most of us weren’t taught about emotions – how to understand them nor how to manage them. But emotions follow us through our whole life and ultimately play a role in how we relate to ourselves and to other people. When we don't learn to understand, respond to, and care for our emotions in a healthy way, we have a harder time in adulthood relating to other people, building safe relationships, and feeling secure in our decisions.

Relationships can be challenging and complex. I offer individual and couples therapy from a relational context. The approach to individual therapy I use is unique in that I don't just treat you, the individual; I also focus on the relational dynamics at play in your home, workplace, and personal life that contribute to your mental health concerns and your emotional wellbeing. In couples therapy I focus on the relationship itself with benefits to the individuals involved ensuing rather than being pursued. Satisfying relationships are not just about meeting each others needs, but are about meeting the relational needs that exist between you.

Teen Therapists
Adolescence can be a time of both disorientation and discovery. The transitional period can raise questions of independence and identity; as adolescents cultivate their sense of self, they may face difficult choices about academics, friendship, sexuality, gender identity, drugs, and alcohol.

Most teens have a relatively egocentric perspective on life; a state of mind that usually abates with age. They often focus on themselves and believe that everyone else—from a best friend to a distant crush—is focused on them too. They may grapple with insecurities and feelings of being judged. Relationships with family members often take a backseat to peer groups, romantic interests, and appearance, which teens perceive as increasingly important during this time.

The transition can naturally lead to anxiety about physical development, evolving relationships with others, and one's place in the larger world. Mild anxiety and other challenges are typical, but serious mental health conditions also emerge during adolescence.
