As a therapist, I look for the basic goodness of human beings and try to bring clients having locus of control in their lives and share perspectives leading clients to feel liberated so they find the meaning of life; fulfillment and happiness. This takes practice, as our minds naturally scan for the negative, but if we try, we can almost always find something good about you and others which will lead us to heal and peace and may bring harmony and joy to our life. Personally, I enjoy reading books regarding history and philosophy. I have a strong passion for helping children and adults, including parenting issues.

Being a Parent Educator led me into this field.
I am an experienced therapist offering a direct, supportive, nonjudgemental setting to individuals and couples. I work from an Internal Family Systems, Process therapy perspective using dialogue, parts work, role play, educational tools, mindfulness, visualization. My goal is to guide you into connection with yourself and your significant other ( if you come to me as a couple.) I invite you to know your internal landscape, meet your parts, understand your issues and communicate mindfully. I trust implicitly that you are moving toward wholeness and well-being; that your core essence guides us both in the work.

In our work together we would examine what emotions are arising for you as a parent , learn how to improve the connection with your child, and encourage your child to cooperate by setting limits with empathy and respect.
Finding the right therapist to work with is an important decision. The therapist's credentials and specialties are factors to consider, but perhaps the most important factor is "do I feel a connection with this person and can I talk openly with her about the challenges I'm facing?" It is an honor and a privilege to support you in your journey. I love helping people examine their lives, understand themselves better, and navigate their relationships more skillfully. My style as a therapist is pragmatic and I apply various approaches based on your individual needs.

Being a parent is a hard and rewarding job! Parents often feel they have to do it on their own, with meager training or support.
I believe living a successful life is a process. I have to laugh at the expression,"Expect the Unexpected," because it is so true! In order to navigate through a life of uncertainty, you may need support or guidance during the more difficult stages. I am here so you don't have to go it alone. My goal is to create a safe environment for you to explore your personal needs. I would be honored to assist you with navigating life transitions such as job relocations, marriage conflicts, parenting challenges, major life decisions or empty nest syndrome.

In my work as a classroom teacher, high school soccer coach, guidance counselor, marriage and family therapist, husband and parent , I've gained valuable experiences about relationships of all sorts, and I rely on the learning from these roles to support my clients in the changes they are hoping to make in their lives.
I want to work closely with my clients to develop a collaborative and respectful relationship. Clients who are facing difficulties in their lives, and who feel that they need to make changes in their relationships with others and with themselves, will find in their work with me a compassionate, supportive, non-judgmental and empathic listener.

Being a parent can be really tough; so can being a kid.
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.

Contact me via Email for a free 15-min consultation if you are ready to work on family issues (traumas, adverse childhood experiences, parenting , bi-cultures, etc).
You don’t understand why your family causes you so many sleepless nights. You need someone to talk to but feel shame bringing up family issues or you don’t know where to start. You try to please everyone but you end up being the unhappy one. You cut off toxic family relationships but this leaves you feeling guilt, loneliness, and resentment. To prove yourself, you work hard and sometimes overcompensate. Past unresolved issues consume your energy, make you question yourself, and become hesitant to try a new relationship. You don’t want to be your parents but you don’t know how not to. You doubt if you can live a different life.

Are you overwhelmed? Stressed? Are you struggling with thoughts that you find disturbing? Are you in need of hope, healing, and support? If so, I can help. I work with those who tend to be the 'black sheep', who are looking to find themselves. My clients are adults experiencing work related stress, life stress, life transitions, anxiety, depression, trauma, navigating parenting and relationship issues. I utilize a trauma informed approach in my work, as trauma has a tremendous impact on our life, whether vicariously or first-hand. I work with new parents (moms and dads) including foster parents/caregivers and adoptive parents.

I will use my rich clinical experience to coach you to become the successful adult, partner, parent , or individual you want to be.
For most of us, understanding and communicating our needs isn't easy! You may be feeling anxious or depressed. You may be experiencing conflicts with your partner, children, and friends but you don't know "WHY?" You may have experienced traumatic situations in your life such as the loss of a loved one, job,or illness. You may be in a current relationship that you recognize as unhealthy, but you feel STUCK. Therapy is a safe and effective way to create positive changes in your life!
