My expertise is working with trauma, grief & sexual abuse of children, teens and adults using trauma focused CBT, EMDR, Brain Spotting &play therapy.
My experience comes from 31 years of helping children, adults , couples and families in both Community Mental Health and Private Practice. My approach is eclectic and tailored to each individual's needs to facilitate healing and growth. Through my years of experience I have witnessed over and over again people coming into therapy with great pain, discomfort and despair but with time, (sometimes within a very short time) their symptoms diminish and a whole new person emerges. Crisis times can be extremely painful and distressful but they can also be opportunities for growth and healing through therapy.

My extensive clinical training includes working with children, teenagers, and adults with anxiety, depression, and family/childhood trauma.
My therapeutic approach mainly focuses on helping my clients identify their strengths to help alleviate anxiety, depression, and trauma. I am a firm believer that our childhood experiences contribute to our beliefs, behavioral patterns, and selecting a romantic partner. Therapy is a process! To allow ourselves to be intimate and vulnerable with someone about our experiences and trauma can be daunting. As a therapist, it is my goal to help validate, create a safe environment and help understand aspects of lived experiences.

In my practice I have worked with children, teens, adults and families as individuals or in groups.
If you feel as if you are alone or different than others you are not. Are you having difficulty focusing, enjoying activities and increased anxiety? Have you begun using alcohol or drugs? Do you find yourself isolating and making excuses to not see friends or family? There is nothing to be ashamed or embarrassed about. You could have a mental disorder. There is help, support and relief for your health issues. Starting therapy today will help you get your life back on track.

I enjoy being a psychotherapist because it provides me the opportunity to help people resolve the issues that are causing them distress. I work with adults , children, and families, and understand that each person is a unique individual with his or her unique life circumstances, history, and social and cultural context. A goal of our work together will be to help you identify and understand the conflicts that may be causing you difficulty, and to help you overcome them. Or perhaps negative thinking patterns cause you to experience sadness, loneliness, hopelessness, fear, or other unwanted emotions.

I specialize in working with children, adolescents, young adults and families.
In my therapeutic practice, I seek to truly understand and validate my clients’ experiences. No two people or life experiences are the same and by continuously remaining curious about my clients’ experiences, it’s amazing how far back we can uncover unhealed trauma, history and patterns. I often approach therapy through a Family Systems perspective, which allows us to dig beyond the self and analyze how our family of origin, relationships and/or intergenerational patterns influence how we have come to understand the world and our behaviors. I also enjoy utilizing interventions based on Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Motivational Inte

Due to many years of work and specialized training in early childhood mental health I am uniquely qualified to work with adults around issues of attachment, childhood trauma, immigration trauma and difficult family dynamics.
Change, healing and growth are no small tasks. I know this first hand and am here to help others find their own success overcoming the pain and obstacles they encounter throughout life. I work collaboratively with individuals to identify sources of stress, discover unsuccessful patterns, embrace difficult feelings and develop both internal and external resources for getting to where they want to go. I hope to foster greater self-awareness, acceptance and compassion in all of my clients. I work most frequently with adults struggling with depression, general anxiety, social anxiety, trauma, grief/loss and life transitions.

I work with children, adolescents and adults using a psychodynamic framework to think with you about the meaning of your struggles.
Entering into a therapeutic process can be compared to traveling to another country. Each experience is unique, it takes time to feel at home, and it's often more fulfilling accompanied by a local. Psychotherapy provides an opportunity to slow down and dig out an intimate and safe space to be curious about one's mind. Working together, we can explore your roadblocks from different angles or create alternative paths. In my experience, there is often no easy and straightforward answer to one's suffering, feeling of emptiness or confusion.

My area of focus is working with adults of color on managing stress, relationships, and challenges related to identity and self-esteem.
This isn't your typical lay on a couch, tell your darkest secrets, psychoanalytical therapy! Nor am I a life coach handing out advice about how you should live your life! The goal is to support you in addressing barriers to you living your best life in real time. We will identify the barriers, create goals and strategies, and implement the plan together, with you in the drivers seat. Addressing the mind, body and soul means that we will work to elevate the way you think about yourself, the way you treat your body, and how you connect with others.

I enjoy working with adults and couples of all ethnic and cultural backgrounds, sexual orientations, and gender expressions.
Do you find yourself feeling overwhelmed and weighed down by critical self-talk? Is it difficult to stand up for your needs and set healthy boundaries? Many of us have the desire to be truly listened to, seen, and deeply understood. I believe all of us have the answers within ourselves and our unique experiences, and sometimes we just need a little help from someone else to help us discover them. I'm not going to talk your ear off or mansplain your nervous system to you. I will listen, we will talk through things, I will challenge the way you look at things, there may be tears, and there will definitely be laughter.

Over the years, I have worked with children and adults of all ages.
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.
