The evolving challenges of raising children involve the addition of new technology and an ever-increasing pressure to succeed. Keeping on top of these dynamics can at best overwhelm and at worst alienate those in even the most healthy families. Teens pass through a stage of fluctuating hormonal levels, while negotiating burgeoning independence, and navigating the waters of social media along with peer pressure. Meanwhile parents are dealing with keeping a household afloat, managing the family and their careers, while often having aging parents and/or dealing with grief over their loss. When teens and parents need a little help or mental health challenges require more effort for daily living than they should, learning new coping skills with or without medication can make a difference. Discovering what influences behaviors and learning ways to express what needs to be said can empower parents and their children to find more happiness and fulfillment in life. Sorting through these challenges and developing coping techniques that help organize and balance communication is my goal with all families and individuals.

Clients often seek psychotherapy because something feels “off” or there are struggles which result in developmental and life transitions in their families. Unexplored behavioral and emotional responses can keep us feeling “stuck” and prevent us from fulfilling relationships and careers. Each client is unique and there is no such thing as “one size, fits all” therapy. I provide both long-term and shorter term support for clients facing setbacks/life changes. Therapy should help clients find a lifelong “compass” with which to navigate life's transitions.

The natural evolution of life brings many stressors and transitions our way. We may be faced with relationship problems, choosing a life path, difficulties at work/school, family upsets and more. Feelings of disconnection, confusion, grief, anxiety, depression and others can be difficult to manage. Increasing self knowledge may enable us to confront such challenges with less difficulty. Greater internal understanding often brings about a stronger understanding of why and how we react, moving us toward a more healthy and fulfilled experience.

Often we find managing life challenges become too much for us to handle on our own. We don't always ask for help until overwhelming anxiety, depression, relationship difficulties, or behavioral issues cause us to develop unhelpful coping strategies. Or, we may say we don't have the time to talk to someone. You want relief quickly. Together we will work to identify helpful coping skills to help reduce the distressing emotions and focus on the underlying reasons for your discomfort. I believe that psychotherapy is about serving others with a supportive space to work together, recognize personal strengths, and practice skills.
