I have an expertise in working with Early Childhood aged children, children going through divorce , and Co-Parenting therapy.
As a child, adult, and couple's psychologist, my goal is to provide treatment with care and integrity. Children come in for school problems, behavioral problems or mood disturbances including anxiety. I provide support and coaching for parents along side the therapy for their children. Adults come to see me for desire to live with less pain, more peace. Couples engage in work to improve communication or manage a stress that is effecting the relationship. The therapeutic relationship is a powerful medium for change. Regardless of the reason for starting therapy, most people get tremendous relief.

I provide parenting plan development, mediation, custody evaluations and guidance through the divorce process.
My approach to therapy is a very individual one. Each person begins therapy in a different place and is unique in how they go through their process. While respecting individuality, I will help you identify the problems, explore patterns of behavior and clarify destructive thought patterns. I encourage growth and introspection with my clients; however I will continually respect the pace that you need to develop at. I provide a safe and professional environment as well as a genuine concern for what issues you are addressing. I also provide custody mediation, co-parent counseling, child custody evaluations and parent coordination.

I enjoy working with children, teens, individual adults, and couples! Are you stressed out because your child or teen is dealing with anxiety, depression, academic, or behavioral problems? Are you yourself feeling anxious, depressed? Perhaps you are experiencing numbness and a sense of disconnect from a recent illness, trauma, or life transition such as divorce ? Are you struggling in your marriage to feel that emotional and physical connection you once felt? I believe you are unique and special, and I look forward to working together to create growth and change in your life!

I have 20+ years of providing psychotherapy with BIPOC working on a range of concerns including anxiety, depression, trauma, divorce , grief & loss.
Do you feel stuck or misunderstood and often have strong reactions towards others and can't seem to figure out if it's you or others? Often times our cultural identity and values intertwine into our current relationships creating tensions, stress and challenges. Our differences in communication styles, thinking patterns and ways of expressing our feelings maybe the reasons we are experiencing stress in our lives and our relationships. Psychotherapy can provide the opportunity for us to explore the distress and difficulties in your relationships in a safe space and deepen your self reflection of unconscious behaviors and patterns.
