I specialize in transition to parenthood, pregnancy loss, building family (straight and LGBTQ ), adoption, foster and kinship parenting, perinatal mood disorders, attachment challenges and disruptions, developmental and life transitions, parent child relationships at all ages, children's school problems, behavioral issues, ADHD, depression, and anxiety.
A clinical and developmental psychologist with over 30 years experience, I work with adults, parents and children from birth through adolescence. Development is a continual balance of equilibrium and disequilibrium; a lifelong process as our bodies, brains, relationships and societal expectations change. While the challenges along the way bring the discomfort of vulnerability and negative emotions, they also create opportunity for growth and change. From infancy on, we all have an inner vitality into which therapy can allow us to tap. Therapy provides a safe protected space that nurtures exploration, reflection, growth and change.

In my private practice, I specialize in working with members of the LGBTQ + community, people in STEM and tech fields, college and graduate students, and working adults.

My specialty areas include grief and loss, adoption, ADHD, race/class issues, work/life balance, LGBTQ issues, and divorce. I help people manage anxiety and mood problems. I help couples with concerns related to parenting, managing conflict, and addressing needs and expectations.

My clients are autistic individuals or their families and supports whose experience of autism is overwhelming. They are in need of hope, encouragement and direction in order to feel whole and valued. Their overwhelm has led to frustration and uncertainty over possibilities, and what to do next. They arrive, feeling unsafe in their environments, unable to communicate so they are understood, and unappreciated for who they truly are. By establishing a safe relationship and working environment we create the tools necessary to be heard, seen and appreciated. These are the missing cornerstones of their growth and expansion.

You’re struggling with difficult feelings in your relationship with a spouse, partner, your child, family members, friends or people at work. Or you may be trying to come to terms with painful feelings about things that happened in the past. When you’re hurting or feeling confused, you don’t know what to do. People in your life may not understand you or your experiences. You may want to develop greater self-awareness and hope to find a greater sense of choice and freedom in your life. It takes courage to sit with the layers of your experience. And it also takes time. Therapy allows for time to look inside and be present.
