In addition, I am the parent (and spouse) of individuals with ADHD, Sensory Issues, Dyslexia, Anxiety and OCD.
I am particularly effective in working with bright and highly sensitive teens. During this pandemic, I believe that our most perceptive, sensitive adolescents are having the biggest mental health challenges with not seeing friends, family, and teachers on a more regular basis. I have extensive experience as a School Counselor in both private and public schools in the SF Bay Area. I also have designed and taught Social and Emotional Learning at several private schools. My ideal client is a teen facing the obstacles of anxiety, depression, learning challenges or social skills challenges at school or home.

Through my many years of experience in the Bay Area as a school psychologist, counselor, administrator, and parent , I have developed deep empathy for parents and students and partnership is at the core of my practice.
For parents, when your child is struggling - academically, socially, or emotionally - having a partner can make all the difference. Families seek out my services to diagnose learning differences and ADHD and to design and implement successful interventions. I help families achieve understanding and confidence related to their child's education.

Perhaps parenting struggles, particularly with teenagers, are wearing you out. Or, you cannot agree on parenting techniques. Maybe substance abuse is hurting you or a loved one, and you want help addressing it. I have 30 years experience dealing with couple/marital, parenting and substance abuse issues.

I welcome parent feedback between sessions and make myself available by phone, or in-person, as needed.
Once-upon-a-time none of us were parents and we didn't think much about how difficult that role could be. Fast forward to today and here you are searching for help with your child. Addictive technologies, teaching self-discipline, developing strategies for coping with change are challenging. Teaching life skills, and helping parents be more effective is what I've been doing since 1991. I'm what you might call a generalist in that I work with boys and girls of all ages and relate as easily to a six-year-old as to a sixteen-year-old.

Relationships can be hard. Partners struggle with communication, conflicting parenting styles, sexual expressions... Life's challenges, hurtful fights, history of trauma or infidelity make it difficult to sustain trust and closeness. How can you create desired connections, and not lose yourself in the process? How can you be true both to self and to your partnership? I invite you to explore these questions together with empathy and curiosity, letting go of habitual judgments, self-deprecation, and shame. I work with individuals, couples, and families. Both traditional and alternative lifestyles are welcome, and no issue is a taboo.

Everyone deserves to feel like themselves. Sometimes life gets ahead of us and we can feel lost, stuck and/or disconnected. It can be distressing and cause suffering. Maybe it is a major life event or role change, a spiraling negative thought pattern, mounting academic or career pressure, or parenting or relationship challenges. Whatever the reason, it takes courage to seek help and effort to imagine change and improvement. You have taken the first step. Your next steps will be joined by a therapist who will treat you with respect and work diligently to address your presenting problem.

I have experienced marriage, divorce, blended family and co- parenting .
My training is primarily in healing couples by looking at the repeated patterns that get in the way of safe intimate connection. We all have responses that are were wonderfully helpful in the past but are less successful at getting what we want now. My aim is to help you let go of what is causing distress and develop ways of interacting that create happiness and health. I also work with individuals and provide EMDR if deemed appropriate. Mindfulness, to self regulate, is central to my work.
