Does your child seem unhappy or angry; maybe having problems at home or school? Are your kids fighting? Do you have a young child who doesn’t listen to you, refuses to sleep in their own bed, won’t eat anything but crackers, or throws a fit when they don’t get their way? Do you find yourself feeling frustrated or angry with your child ? Are you tired of fighting with your spouse, or your kids? Maybe your kids are fine but find you, yourself, are feeling overwhelmed. I am here to help. I’m a teacher turned therapist who works with children (0-17) and families, both individually and as a whole.

Whether I am working with an individual adult, child or family, I always want to understand what are the current supports available to my client which will help them resolve concerns in the most positive and sustainable means possible.
As a clinical psychologist, I have over 30 yrs experience helping clients work through life's difficult challenges. I work with parents and children to address developmental and behavioral difficulties and to find solutions to the unique challenges of adolescence. I often work with young adults to help them manage transitions into independence and adult responsibilities. With adults, I facilitate their work toward relief from symptoms generated by psychological conditions or from traumatic events in their past.

I have extensive experience and knowledge supporting children and young adults who are severely impacted by autism (in-home early intervention, school/community based and expressive art workshops) and the challenges that impact the entire family.

If you or your child are struggling with fear, sadness, socializing, family/relationship concerns, behavioral changes or stress then I am available to provide a supportive and compassionate atmosphere to help you move forward.

I believe that people are resilient and resourceful, capable of overcoming difficulties. Sometimes we get entangled in personal and relational patterns that can overwhelm our resources. I help clients identify these problematic patterns and empower them to break free from patterns that do not serve them well. I focus on my client's interpersonal relationships and relationships with larger social systems. I have experience working with children , teens, families, and couples on several issues, including family and couple distress, trauma, and various presentations of anxiety and depression through a systemic and attachment-based lens.

I work with adults, children , and adolescents.
Therapy is a place where you can understand yourself at a deeper level. You will be able to realize how things work in your life and ways of changing things up to make you feel better. I will listen closely to your story and together we will come to an understanding of how you are making things work and if something is not working we will come up with other, more helpful ways to cope with situations.

Do you find yourself asking “Should I be worried about this?” in regards with your child ? Are you struggling to determine whether your child ’s behavior is “normal”, a phase, or something that needs additional support? Is your adolescent’s inability to put his emotional experiences into words resulting in him communicating his inner turmoil through actions (i.e.,arguing, acting out, distancing from you, disengaging with academic responsibilities, etc.). I have a deep passion for working with youth and parents and have had the pleasure of working with children , adolescents, parents, and families from diverse cultural backgrounds and with various stressors since 2006.
