I am a psychologist specializing in Marriage Family Therapy.
I specializes in MFT and ABA. While working with clients, I supports their work by identifying behavior patterns, identifying healthy replacement behaviors, and support my client’s understanding of emotional and cognitive states. Through the understanding of the self, my clients learn how their behaviors impact their environments. And more importantly how they can make changes to enhance their life, relationships, and experiences in their daily environments. I have experience working with adults, couples, groups, and children.

I work with clients of all ages, managing depression, anxiety, addictions, life transitions, grief and loss, couples, family of origin and blended family issues.
Therapy is a process and a relationship which is deeply personal and holistic. I create a safe, confidential, trusted, collaborative and creative space to move toward your personal and relational goals and potential. I offer EMDR to address trauma, resiliency and attachment, and the latest neuroscience knowledge, coupled with body and mindfulness practices. In session, we focus on your unique history, relationships, beliefs, strengths, goals, trauma, dreams and values. We uncover blocks to freedom, expression, and relationships to move toward the goals and vision you wish for yourself, to enable your fullest aliveness.

I invite you to a free video consultation to see if I am a good fit for your family .
It can be heartbreaking to be the parent of a child who is struggling. It feels like other parents don’t have to work as hard as you do. There are tears, tantrums, and challenges at school. They seem to worry about things that other children don’t even notice. You’re feeling exhausted and like no one has the answers. Finding the right person to support you means trusting someone with your child’s wellbeing. It can be scary to reach out to a therapist. You want to make sure that you find someone who can connect to your child and work with you to help you understand what’s going on with them.

I am here to help you get unstuck and reclaim your natural state of joy, well-being, purpose, and vitality. "Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate, our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure (Marianne Williamson)."

What would you give to feel excited about your career, family , friends, or hobbies again? I enjoy blending mind & body healing modalities to help clients achieve wellness at all levels.
Have you attained success in your life, only to find that you feel resentful and burnt out? As a high achiever, it’s confusing to suddenly feel disconnected from the passion that has always driven you. Maybe this dissatisfaction has been slowly growing over the years & you’ve been able to manage it. But now you’re finding it harder to feel interested in your work or relationships. You may also be feeling exhausted & curious why your skills simply aren't working anymore. The habitual stress associated with being a powerful go-getter can also lead to a variety of health problems that medical doctors aren’t skilled at addressing.

My methods are based on a foundation of human behavior and family systems that address issues of trauma, culture, cycles of violence, substance use, co-occurring disorders and addiction within family systems.
Are you or your child struggling with anxiety, depression, or behavioral issues? Have you found yourself feeling stuck or unable to create change? Therapy can help you cope with these challenges and set you up for future success. I find a positive and trusting client-therapist relationship to be the most essential component of the therapeutic process and place an emphasis on creating a safe and non-judgmental space for effective reflection and growth. Incorporating humanistic, mindfulness, and strengths-based approaches, I work with anxiety, depression, self-esteem, oppositional defiance, high-risk behavior, and family dynamics.

As a teacher, author, education researcher, and therapist I have seen how small changes in family dynamics, a marriage or a single person's sense of well-being can make a huge difference.
I work with clients struggling with severe trauma, addiction, depression, anxiety and a variety of life challenges. I have seen many learn to sleep deeply, break free of repetitive worrying thoughts, get excited about life and increase their health and energy. I feel honored that people share their stories with me and have found that no situation is ever without hope. Life can be so much better. If you choose to share with me, we will find a way together.
