I run small parenting support groups as well as a mindfulness group for parents.
There are so many different reasons that parents seek support for their children, and choosing a therapist is a very personal decision: Experience, philosophy, a recommendation from a friend, all go into the decision. But, usually, its just a personal connection. In the end, finding the right therapist is about making a connection that feels good and that matches your families personality. I am a hands on, goal oriented person. I will help to identify the problem, and provide the support and help needed to empower you, as the parent , to help your child.

As a parent and therapist, I especially enjoy working with children, adolescents and young adults to help them feel more resilient.
Are you your best ally or your worst critic? Often we don't see how our own limiting thoughts and fears are holding us back. We become stuck in self-doubt as we judge ourselves and others. Our ability to cope becomes hindered as we struggle and resist what is around us. Therapy can provide a supportive environment to explore, identify and initiate positive change to help you move forward.

Parents, if you are feeling worried when your child struggles, I will help your child become less anxious or depressed, and more resilient. We will also discover the knowledge and skills you need to be the best parent you can be. If your preteen, teen, or young adult child is struggling with executive functioning skills so crucial for successful academic and personal functioning, I can help them become more efficient, productive, and comfortable. Teens or adults grappling with depression, anxiety, or social discomfort, I will help you arrive at what you need in order to fashion a more satisfying life.

As a child/adolescent therapist and parent -child specialist, I know that parenting will always have its challenges and that a certain amount of stress is inevitable, even under the best of circumstances. However, this current pandemic, with its consequent uncertainties and increased challenges and stresses on families, is unprecedented. If you are a parent who is having difficulties or are the parent of a young child, teen or young adult who is having difficulties, talking to a professional can be helpful.

As a parent of grown children I have personally and professionally experienced the adolescent years of hundreds of youth.
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 come to me with many different issues: from parenting to personal and from relationships to reentering the work force. You may be experiencing concerns in these facets of your life or you may be struggling with the particular demands of your own life. But the foundation of my practice is that you can most effectively face and overcome your challenges in a nonjudgmental environment where you can build a trusting and respectful relationship with your therapist. By building that connection, you can begin reconnecting with those you love and moving your own life forward.

Although I specialize in parenting work I also work with individuals whose primary struggles are with anxiety management, emotion regulation, trauma and learning struggles - including individuals with chronic pain, ADHD and/or traumatic brain injury.
I specialize in helping parents more effectively meet the demands and needs of their children, particularly those with anxiety, ADHD and/or other learning issues. My approach is very practical, skill based and emotionally supportive. I believe that when parents feel supported and skillful and have their own anxiety and emotional life well managed, their children are better able to learn the skills they need to manage themselves well. I work with a limited number of children at any given time and only with active participation in sessions (with and without the child) by at least one parent .

I am Programs Director at Game Quitters where I co-created our signature family program RECLAIM- A Parent Guide to Video Game Addiction.
Is Social Media, Gaming, Smartphone use or other Internet based activity dominating your life? Are your friends and/or family complaining that you are always in front of a screen? Do you have a child you think is addicted to technology or being negatively impacted by overuse? Do you describe yourself as addicted? Perhaps you could benefit from treatment. As the founder of Eyes Up Wellness I work with individuals and families to help them find a balance between healthy and adaptive use of technology versus unhealthy overuse, dependence, and addiction. Using technology is unavoidable but compulsive or addictive use can be overcome.
