Immigration Evaluations: I work with the immigrant population impacted by violence in the US and abroad as well as those seeking asylum in the US.
I am a psychotherapist providing individual therapy services to adults. Many of clients who come to me are experiencing feelings of grief, sadness, anxiety, confusion about an area of their life, or difficulty in intimate or familial relationships. I also specialize in working with adults who are impacted by trauma. In my work I understand trauma as how we are impacted by the painful experiences in our lives and the ways in which those experiences shape the way we form relationships with others, with ourselves, and the degree to which we are able to find joy.

I enjoy working with people who have addictions or anxiety or something else weighing them down, working with them for a relatively short period of time, and watching them become energized and passionate about their lives. I believe that my clients know themselves better than anyone else. I work to help my clients achieve their goals. I believe I can best serve people by using what research has shown to be effective. I do not believe therapy should take a long time; most of my clients graduate within 3-6 months. I work on an time-sensitive basis so some require more sessions.

Have you ever wondered why some people seem to flourish in life while others continually struggle or why one person responds differently than another to the same circumstances? Because our internal world is invisible, most of us don’t realize the impact it has on our moods, our perceptions and our lives. We find ourselves reacting to life. We may try to regain control by attempting to manage the external world and when we do, we experience varying amounts of stress. If you are searching for answers on how you can improve the quality of your life, please call me for a free consultation.

Often a person will seek out counseling when personal attempts to solve a problem have not worked. Therapy is a safe and supportive environment in which to explore very personal concerns - concerns that may be difficult to share even with those closest to you. As a Marriage and Family Therapist, I can provide a different kind of support than family and friends; I will listen objectively, not be judgmental, and help you to find your own solutions. My role is to help you feel better and to assist you to acheive your own personal goals.

Do you have a challenge you would like to overcome? Do you sometimes feel isolated and unable to connect with others because you have problems you can't share? Life presents us all, at times, with obstacles and challenges. My practice is centered on providing a supportive environment for individuals and families to make changes, grow personally, and overcome the obstacles preventing them from from fully experiencing the joy of life. Together, we work to gain insight into the causes of conflict and personal challenge, and develop strategies and learn new skills to succeed now and in the future.

When we are exposed to trauma at an early age, it can seriously impact how we feel about ourselves and our relationships with others. Trauma can also profoundly affect whether we feel this is a safe world and can contribute to depression, anxiety, and relational/familial issues. My practice is from a strengths-based, trauma-informed perspective with a non-judgmental framework. I aim to understand clients’ internal responses and to provide more options for emotional regulation and problem-solving.

Throughout our lives, we all have experienced feelings of depression, anxiety, and anger. These emotions leave you feeling insecure, shameful, lonely, unworthy and stuck in unhealthy patterns of behavior. Trauma can have negative emotional and physical effects and can lead to family/relationship issues. I specialize in solution-focused brief therapy, motivational interviewing, mindfulness and CBT. These approaches allow me to work with the client to decrease symptoms of anxiety and depression and other health/behavioral issues.

Domestic Abuse Therapists
Domestic abuse can be physical or psychological, and it can affect anyone of any age, gender, race, or sexual orientation. It may include behaviors meant to scare, physically harm, or control a partner. And while every relationship is different, domestic abuse and violence typically involves an unequal power dynamic in which one partner tries to assert control over the other in a variety of ways.
