I enjoy helping people navigate life's trials. Everyone is unique and I respect their personal struggles. I have discovered in my 24 years of experience, that fine tuning healthy communication can be a reliable way to begin helping the healing process. Communication skills may seem simple, and they can be, but the adverse affect of miscommunication is profound. My skills can provide you the techniques for problem solving difficult or emotional situations.

Deciding to pursue therapy for your child, teen, yourself, or your family is a difficult yet rewarding decision. It is not often that we give ourselves the time and attention to focus on our feelings, frustrations and desires, but doing so can change our perceptions of ourselves and the world around us. My theoretical orientation integrates Mindfulness and solution-focused therapy with cognitive behavioral interventions that will reduce stress immediately.

As a psychotherapist in New York City for 25 years, I met a lot of people with issues that seemed beyond their ability to manage alone. We all have challenges as we move forward in life and sometimes we need help. Therapy works. Try it! After relocating to California, I was asked what "city life" was like. I explained that it may seem chaotic and noisy at first but as you get to know your way around, city life becomes familiar and can even be fun. Similarly, when you call, we can begin a collaboration to affect needed changes allowing you to move forward with more confidence. I look forward meeting with you.
