I also work with parents exploring how myriad factors, including but not limited to psychological development, neurodiversity, family dynamics, siblings, trauma, ADHD/ADD, learning differences, foster care, and trauma might be impacting a child's behavior, after which we will use the newfound insights to explore alternative parenting strategies.
It is my belief that fear, sadness, alienation, painful relationships and other causes of deep emotional distress do not need to be permanent. I am compassionate, patient, and take a personalized, flexible, holistic approach to each person. In therapy, we will explore thoughts, feelings, current and past relationships, trauma/s, early life, passions and anything of importance to you in order to help you live a more fulfilling and satisfying life.

My goal is to also find your teen's honest and authentic self so you as the parent have a better understanding of what your teen's experience is.
My passion and specialty are focused on working with teens and families that feel stuck and in need of guidance and support. I believe every family is capable of change and can work through barriers that get in the way of authenticity, trust, and connection. My expertise is working with teens and families that are facing depression, anxiety, distance from one another, resentments, and struggle to communicate.

As parents and clinicians, we know it is hard to have a unique brain in a typical world. We know you need different navigational tools in these turbulent waters. So, we designed a program based on well-researched therapies for all ages that will strengthen core brain functions - attention, memory, processing speed and problem-solving - and increase social skills. For parents, we work together to find the right community supports and develop the skills you need as a parent to support a calm and thriving family life.

We'll set goals together so you can live the life you want, as a parent and as your full self.
When you become a mother, everything changes. Even before the baby arrives, seismic shifts in our priorities, hopes, and fears begin. Our identities, our relationships, even our daily routines can feel like they've been blown up. Self-care feels impossible, and the learning curve can be overwhelming. And then there are the "shoulds" — the ones we hold for ourselves, and the ones that family or society put on us. It's no wonder that the joys of welcoming a new baby into the family often go hand-in-hand with stress, anxiety, depression, and other mental health challenges.

I often use Infant- Parent Psychotherapy when working with children 0-3 years old.
Taking the time to find the right therapist for yourself or your family is a brave, intelligent way to approach change. I work with adults, children, and families to develop healthy ways of being with others and healthy ways of being alone. I work with parents and children around a number of concerns including anxiety, depression, and disability. I offer a free 20 minute initial phone consultation. You are welcome to call me and we can think together about whether I might be a good fit for the situation you are addressing.

I offer consultation on separation/divorce, co- parenting counseling, and parenting .
Feelings and thoughts, at times, may be difficult to manage. Anxiety, depression, painful entanglements, behavioral issues, and the lingering effects of damaging experiences can exhaust us. They may also interfere with relationships and affect behaviors. Finding meaning in difficult emotions and life events can be very helpful. My hope is to provide understanding and insight that creates a safe relationship and develops a sensible model for people to discover potentially destructive patterns, what really matters to them, and how one can live a more creative, flexible, and full life.

The early years of parenthood can be simultaneously some of the most rich and challenging in our lives. My passion is in helping new parents through the big choices and feelings in raising a new human being, while also nurturing the parent , partner and person they most wish to be. There are often unforeseen challenges that occur at the very time we are most depleted and stretched thin, and difficulties in identifying and communicating our own needs while caring for others. I'd love to help you feel supported and understood so that you can parent from a place of greater strength and confidence.

I also specialize in parent consultation.
In response to current disruptions to daily life and worries related to Covid-19, I am now serving individual adults looking for strategies to manage stress. I specialize in teletherapy for individuals and for parents. I also specialize in supporting parents. Many parents need a forum to discuss the new reality of sheltering in place, and sometimes homeschooling children. If you have a child who is sensitive, reactive, or sometimes hard to parent , I can help. I have experience with a wide range of children of all ages, and have supported parents and individual adults for many years.

Self-discovery is a process that can be both incredibly challenging and tremendously rewarding. Sometimes we seek it out and often it finds us through painful and uncomfortable symptoms or experiences. A few of these that I see in my practice include relationship challenges, anxiety, depression, health issues and blocks to self-expression. As a parent , I also work with postpartum moms and new parents as they navigate parenthood. Challenging experiences can lead to powerful healing and profound change. I believe in this process because it revolutionized my own life. I am honored to accompany others in their version of this process.

If you are considering divorce, or are dealing with other challenges, like parenting , estate planning, or workplace tensions, I can help you in the role of mediator or coach.
Addiction causes everyone to swirl around it, like circling a drain. How would you like to keep loving your partner or family member, but not be sucked into shaping your life around them? If you are the person with addiction, how would you like to feel free? I can help you learn to float and not be dragged down. Breathe fresh air. Become a master swimmer. I understand that suffocating feeling, and work with you to help you find yourself again, whether you are the family member or the person with addiction.
