I specialize in transition to parenthood, pregnancy loss, building family (straight and
), 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.
