As an educational consultant, my focus includes helping parents navigate special education, resolving problems with a child's IEP and developing effective school interventions through consultation. I have experience working in early childhood, school and clinical settings providing a range of services to children with developmental, learning and behavioral needs. Efshar אפשר means possible, and my approach at Efshar consulting is rooted in the belief that growth is possible for all children. My work is informed by educational research and the experiences I gained as a teacher, special education consultant, and school psychologist.

I am committed to providing effective, empirically tested, affordable treatment. My approach is honest, collaborative, interactive, and nonjudgmental. Often in life we buy into stories about ourselves that seem to protect us but ultimately prevent us from moving toward the things we value. We get caught up in judging whether a behavior is good or bad, rather than asking if it is effective in creating the life that we envision.

I believe that every person has the ability to heal within themselves and that healing starts by expressing our stories. Sometimes we are looking for a guide to accompany us on this journey. I specialize in working with teens and adults who may be feeling "stuck" in their lives through shame, fear, or anger and have experienced childhood trauma and neglect that continues to impact your relationships, identity, and self-esteem. I hope to support you in finding your voice, changing your body and mind's response to old patterns, and being more proactive and in control of your choices.

Everyone has the potential to change, grow and heal. I believe that psychotherapy can be a powerful tool toward those ends. Effective therapy requires an accepting and authentic therapist-client relationship, and I strive to create an environment filled with warmth, trust and understanding. I will encourage you to deepen your understanding of your experiences and emotional life. As most people enter therapy during a time of heightened discomfort, I also strive to quickly identify areas of concern, develop an approach that feels comfortable, and help you find greater fulfillment in your life.

Feeling listened to with care, respect, and curiosity helps you gain clarity and self-understanding. Patients tell me they feel stronger and more confident through our work, and their relationships and careers often show the benefits. Together, we can examine and explore your life. We can untangle your strengths, conflicts and questions. We can identify things you keep doing even though they're not working for you. When we find issues interfering with your goals, passions, or relationships, we can work together toward change. More info at tppsych.com

Thank you for taking the time to view my profile. Life can be overwhelming at times and it can feel as if you are not properly equipped to handle the difficulties you have to face. I believe that we all try to do the right thing, but sometimes old habits persist, unwanted feelings intrude, and we can feel like we are doing it all alone. If you choose to explore working with me, I hope to encourage your natural curiosity about your life, your relationships, and your current circumstances. I hope to encourage connections that lead you towards lasting change.

My approach to therapy is one that focuses on a collaborative relationship between therapist and client. Through a strong therapeutic relationship, I believe clients are able to work through their struggles in an emotionally, safe space that is nonjudgmental, honest and compassionate. The journey of working through struggle becomes an opportunity for growth and healing. Through the therapeutic process, we explore patterns and ways of gaining insight into struggles while also building practical coping skills for managing difficulties on a daily basis.

Do you feel you are not fulfilling your potential in life and love? Are there things you want to change about yourself, your situation, your partner? I use a multidimensional understanding of a person to quickly identify core issues. All people have strengths and gifts of which they are often unaware. Together we can uncover these strengths, develop new capacities and chart a course for the future. I'm an interactive, engaged therapist. I use a variety of techniques from cognitive, somatic and depth psychology, to promote self-awareness and emotional growth.

Upon entering each new developmental phase of our lives, there is often a momentary pause, an unsettling of the ship as we adjust to new demands, challenges and desires (and this is true no matter our age). Perhaps the Terrible Twos, Tween or Teen years have hit? Could it be that your child is struggling at school and you'd like to support him or her to feel better and have more success? Maybe you are an adult who is feeling overwhelmed by stress and the demands of life. These moments are great opportunities for growth and I believe I can help.

You look good on paper. You have the degree/s, maybe even the title. But something isn't quite right when you look in the mirror or look around at you and/or your family. It's a big step for anyone to recognize that what you've been doing isn't working. Depressed about your circumstances? Anxious about not yet showing up as the fantasy version of yourself. Feeling like you don't belong or don't deserve to be seen as good as you know you are but won't allow yourself to believe? Let's examine your narrative and find the path to how YOU will redefine your best self.
