I provide counseling for pre and post-partum concerns, new parent consultations, adolescent psychotherapy and parent consultation for parents of older children on all aspects of development.
I know that choosing a therapist can be a daunting task. Selecting someone who has experience working with your concerns and to whom you can connect is essential. I have been practicing for over 20 years and work effectively with individuals, couples and families who find themselves struggling with issues related to depression, anxiety, life transitions and interpersonal conflicts. Through guided exploration, clients have been able to understand their difficulties more fully, develop more productive coping strategies and live more satisfying, complete lives.

You are an individual with a unique story. Perhaps you’re a parent who wants to expand what it means to raise a child, maybe you’re processing trauma and working on re- parenting yourself, or you’re exploring questions of gender and sexuality. I come to this work because of stories. Stories of the human condition, stories we tell ourselves, the story that culture tells us, and stories that need repair. Sometimes we need help understanding, processing, or reimagining our stories.

Maybe you are looking for help with the challenges of parenting your teenager or seeking help for an adolescent who is struggling.

As beautiful and fulfilling as parenting can be, it can also be just as stressful and frustrating. Daily tasks such as homework, chores, or getting ready for school have become a struggle. Trips to the grocery store, park, or restaurant feel like walking on eggshells to avoid the next meltdown. Interactions with peers or siblings seem to often turn into arguments, fighting, or shutting down. When your child is struggling with emotional or behavioral challenges related to anxiety, depression, trauma, ADHD, or something else it can be hard to understand where to start or how to support them.

As a parenting coach and consultant, I attend to whatever needs the most pressing attention in your family. In addition to office meetings, I offer home and school visits to help determine the most expedient course of action to help your family navigate your current developmental challenge. These unique consultations are often short-term, and families may return for periodic visits to address new issues as they emerge. Consider me your parenting partner from birth until your children launch, and even beyond!

“YOU JUST DON’T UNDERSTAND!” your teenager screams at you through tears and gritted teeth. Sometimes it’s unclear if your 12-year-old will ever come out of their room or look up from their video game. You’re afraid to call them down for dinner because of the reaction it may elicit. It’s mind bending to think that you – the parent – have to walk on eggshells just to keep the peace. You know it’s hard to be a teenager these days. But it feels like there’s such a divide, you don’t even know how to begin to help them. Once you lose your temper, the whole house descends into chaos. You’d do anything to get through to them.

Whether you are faced with anxiety, trauma, or loss, expecting a baby and nervous about managing this new role, struggling with a difficult toddler or preschooler, or simply unsure how to manage all of the demands of parenting , I can help you sort out what you need to move forward with newfound confidence and joy.
I specialize in treating anxiety, stress, trauma, relationship difficulties, and behavioral problems. When overwhelming experiences leave their mark, it can be hard to know where to turn for help. Memories, fears, distress, and frustration can take over, damaging our relationships, work life, and self-esteem. When our children are struggling with intense feelings, tantrums, or other behavioral problems it can be intensely frustrating and difficult to manage. By understanding the root of your distress together we can find new ways to cope, take action towards what you want in your life, and develop greater peace and happiness.

I specialize in couples, families and parenting .
"The best way out is always through." This famous Robert Frost quote is at the core of my approach. When we get stuck -- in a rut at work, in a stormy relationship, in a lukewarm marriage, with our children -- we suffer but are often unwilling to go to the heart of the trouble. Sometimes, we're not even aware of what the true issue is. All we can do is try to avoid the pain, skirt problems, even pretend we are fine. We are blocked by fear -- another word for anxiety. Together, we can walk slowly through that fear, and get to the other side.

Mindful Parenting .
I treat codependency...a fancy word for over-focusing on others and under-focusing on you. Letting others determine your self-esteem is a dangerous thing to do. But when you're harmed as a kid, you learn that you don't matter. You come away from childhood with broken "antennae". You don't see unhealthy traits in others. Too much pain teaches you to ignore your feelings and live in your head. It's a trick that gets you through childhood, but it sabotages adult relationships. My passion is helping you use your voice to get what you want.

Besides psychotherapy, I provide parent training, child custody mediation, and work in a multidisciplinary team as a divorce coach and child expert in the collaborative divorce process to prevent emotional damage to all parties going through divorce, especially children.
As a cognitive-behavioral therapist, I believe that people's emotions and behaviors are influenced by their perceptions and interpretation of events. I work collaboratively with my clients in a proactive manner in order for them to learn effective strategies that they can use for the rest of their lives. I also believe that we are influenced by the cultural context in which we grow up. All relationships are, to some extent, are contextual and intercultural. People often face new challenges as they go through transitions in their lives. I bring my life experiences and professional knowledge to therapy.

You may be struggling in a situation that, for whatever reasons, is not improving as you had hoped it would. And now you might be experiencing unwanted emotions related to COVID-19; relationship struggles; parenting ; marital difficulties; family conflict; a recent trauma; or something else that is painfully impacting you and one or more of your relationships. Are you losing sleep, feeling sad, anxious, depressed, confused, or feeling helpless right now? Feeling stuck? If so and you're here, you're probably tired of trying to figure all of this out by yourself. The good news is you don't have to be alone with all of this anymore.

People enter into therapy for many reasons. Often the catalyst is difficulty with a relationship, a job, or a way of coping. Anxiety and depression can provide the stimulus to seek help. When they intrude into everyday waking consciousness they are indicators that something is out of balance and needs to be addressed. Areas of particular interest within my practice are parent -child difficulties, especially the early stages of parenting ; relationships; finding one's voice and inner authority; creativity; grief and loss; and the struggle to live one's own life.
