One of the hardest challenges in life is discovering new paths to follow when you feel stuck. Issues below the surface of your awareness could be keeping you from finding answers on your own, and so you've taken this first important step of looking for a therapist to help you achieve deeper understanding. In a collaborative therapy setting, we can explore how clearly you see yourself and others, how you approach or avoid life-affirming possibilities, and how to break through the barriers to change that have been in your way. My priority as a therapist is that you feel fully heard and known as we take this journey together.

Are you worried about your teen, pre-teen or young child? Perhaps your child is struggling with behavioral or emotional issues and typical parenting isn't working. All children and situations are different: sometimes parents need assistance and other times the child needs counseling. As a parent, and having successfully helped hundreds of families, I understand your frustrations and concerns. My goal is to help you clarify the issues, learn how to overcome them, and help your family. I use a variety of methods to help children express themselves as well as identify, cope, and manage their expressions and behaviors.

Our team at Teen Translation, Inc., is expert on adolescent development, using treatment modalities that align with the teen’s developmental tasks. We love to “get preventative” by 1) joining with the adolescent to create a healthy identity and narrative, 2) connecting the teen to the family, drawing upon their greatest resource - you!, and 3) empowering the family to put the bumpers around adolescent exploration, while creating space for the teen to fall down, get back up, and discover their own capability and resiliency. There are a few factors, which I call the “fab five,” that contribute to adolescent behavior:

Feeling stuck? Tired of being trapped in the same patterns with no end in sight? Want to get closer but don't know how? There are times when we feel exhausted and hopeless with ourselves or in our relationships. We feel lonely, insignificant, angry or tired. These feelings may stall us in our growth and interfere with our life goals and passion. I see therapy as a process of discovery. I will walk with you as you find your inner strengths, hope, and courage to be your authentic self. I believe that we all possess the potential for change and growth in how we relate to others, to this world and most importantly, to ourselves.

When considering our experiences in the human tribe, the process of discovering or rediscovering our truest self can be a journey laden with challenges and difficulty. However, it is often when we believe that we have attempted everything we can or know how to do to make difficult transformations, to cease our suffering, and to change unhelpful patterns, that we may find ourselves poised for growth and evolution.

Everyone does the best they can with what they possess. However, life poses substantial struggles that can lead to a state where change is necessary. It is usually a difficult thing to seek assistance, however, it is an act of courage and humility rather than that of weakness. Seeking to find solace, relief, and understanding is human. Overcoming the barriers that block us from connecting to others is the first step in change. I look forward to being present and participating in your journey of understanding, of change, of acceptance, of integration; of reclamation of self.

I specialize in providing psychological services to children and adolescents. These include neuropsychological assessment and psychotherapy. Assessments can be invaluable tools that provide diagnostic clarification, treatment recommendations, and the basis for academic accommodations. The therapeutic interventions I provide to young clients can be used to address a range of common challenges including, but not limited to emotional dysregulation and behavior problems. Based on the client, therapy may take various forms and could entail a talk or play-based approach. I regularly integrate parent or family sessions when appropriate.

Life definitely has its challenging moments. You don't have to face these challenges alone. Together we can help you develop a deeper understanding of the emotional stresses you are experiencing. Relationship problems, loss of a loved one, depression, anxiety, a medical crisis, career options closing, or lack of direction in life often leave people feeling overwhelmed. Therapy can create a clearer understanding of unresolved issues, help you develop a sense of meaning, broaden your life perspective, and move you forward to a more vibrant future.

Do you ever feel broken? Has tragedy taken your ability to feel joy? Has anxiety stolen your peace of mind? Has trauma robbed you of the resiliency you once possessed? Have the dynamics in your relationships grown from compassionate & communicative to conflictual & constricted? Has your identity been tested, oppressed, or discriminated against? If so, then your overall sense of wellness and effectiveness in your life may be wavering. I believe our most optimum level of wholeness is related to the degree of wellness across all areas of life that make us who we are—individual, relational, mental, emotional, spiritual, societal.
