Your inner world and the outer world are so changed. They don't match. And it's not "just" the apocalyptic anxiety and troubles of this era. Maybe you believe you "should have known better," shouldn't have trusted someone, or should have trusted yourself. You could be tired of holding it all together outside while falling apart or feeling dead inside. Maybe you are simply so stressed you don't want to reach out to *anyone*. Part of healing is self acceptance for where we find ourselves without giving up on our goals and dreams. A trained professional can provide privacy, objectivity, compassionate perspective, and effective tools.

I have spent my career working with couples and women experiencing stress, anxiety, and depression - and helping them to build healthier relationships and work on common painful issues. These include: infidelity, trauma, transition to parenthood, perinatal concerns, infertility, sexual problems, difficulty communicating, past sexual abuse, and other stressors. Many of my clients are high achieving professionals in entertainment, art, law, finance, and sport that have challenges juggling work responsibilities with their roles in the home.

I enjoy helping people who wish to heal from past trauma or loss, depression, anxiety, or substance abuse. I believe therapy serves as a way of liberating ourselves from problems and wounds of the past so that we can go out into the world to relate and live in newer, more meaningful, ways.

As a clinical neuropsychologist, I specialize in the assessment of children and young adults in order to evaluate intelligence, learning and recall, attention skills, perception, motor skills, processing speed, problem solving, and coping skills and styles. Families often seek an assessment when they have questions regarding their child's academic performance, social and/or emotional health, or behavioral concerns. The goal of the individualized assessment process is to determine each individual's areas of strength and challenge and to create a detailed learning profile.

I believe deeply in the transformative potential and enduring nature of psychotherapy. When we're feeling stuck, confused or alone, therapy can help us to untangle our emotions, clarify our struggles, and better understand ourselves and others - ultimately forming inroads to real and lasting change. I am a compassionate and collaborative therapist: I establish a safe, non-judgmental space where our mutual exploration of your relationships, family history, career, sexuality, or whatever is troubling you currently - as well as aspects of our therapeutic relationship - will open pathways to new awareness and opportunities for welcome change, growth and healing.

Psychotherapy is a pathway to understanding, insight and change. In my work, I focus on helping my patients to develop a greater ability to reflect on oneself, that is, "connect the dots", and a greater ability to feel and to act in the world. I believe that an understanding of a persons's relationships with others, both historically and currently, is central to the process of change. I strive to develop this understanding collaboratively in an atmosphere of openness, safety, honesty and curiosity.

There are many pressures from society to perform a certain way, to achieve certain things by particular time frames, and to think like the group. But what if we don't? Does that mean we can't be a part of society? We all feel lonely and marooned on weirdo island sometimes. Truly understanding ourselves and how we want to live our lives can sometimes feel like a far-fetched fantasy. However, figuring out who we are isn't something that we have to do alone.

Our experiences and environment shape us greatly. They define how we perceive the world, impact our relationships, and contribute to developing our strengths. Sometimes we start to see patterns in our lives that are not in alignment with what we expect or what we want for ourselves. Feelings of despair may emerge.

We are at a time where compassion towards self is more important than ever. Life is overwhelming and complicated. Maybe you "have it all" but feel like something is missing or you are having issues communicating your needs. Many struggle with the idea of having symptoms of depression and anxiety internalizing the symptoms with being "crazy". I am here to remove the labels and have individuals be more aware of the symptoms you experience (fear, poor sleep and appetite, nervousness, sadness, negative thoughts, etc.) and treat them with compassion, reframing and safe coping skills to better improve your life.

I believe that, at the unconscious level, each of us has a deep understanding of what our unique purpose is (i.e. a true sense of Self). However, through conditioning, life circumstances, cultural/societal expectations, and many other variables, there has grown a great disconnect between the way we are and who we truly want to be. In a safe, supportive and collaborative environment, I will help you navigate through this process of deeper self-understanding and reconnection in order to live a healthier, happier and more fulfilling life.

What that means is that through careful listening and dialogue, I'll work with you to better identify and understand what may be behind painful symptoms like lack of impulse control, binge eating, depression that's so heavy you can't get out of bed, or the terrible grief that comes from losing a loved one.
