It is heartbreaking to see your child struggle and not know how to help them. Most parents who call me have tried every tool they have to help their children with little or no result. you might feel alone in your experience, feel guilt and shame for not being able to help your child or even for losing your own temper if you have an intense high need child. Perhaps your child is struggling in school, and you are dreading the next phone call to address the latest issues, or feel exhausted trying to go through the daily function without meltdowns, or worrying about your teen’s emotional state, lack of communication,or defiant behavior

I welcome adolescents and adults who are ready to begin or continue their processes of healing and path finding in this challenging and wondrous life. I work with clients in a variety of ways. One of my primary approaches is to address the beliefs that each person has internalized during his or her life. These beliefs direct our choices. Erroneous beliefs about self, others, and the world at large put limits on us and hold us back from healthy relations and personal empowerment. My professional commitment includes honoring my clients' diverse world views as they work toward improving their lives.

Life can feel overwhelming, confusing and difficult. Relationships can be challenging. Change and loss can lead to uncertainty. All of this can lead to feelings of anxiety and depression. I help people make sense of their experience, navigate through difficult times and increase their self-awareness to achieve a greater sense of purpose, freedom, and choice in their lives. The therapeutic relationship is a collaborative space where you can work to understand and resolve your feelings, explore thoughts and behaviors that may have you feeling “stuck” in your life and identify relationship patterns that interfere with your well-being.

Therapy is a partnership. Together, we work gently with the body, mind, and emotional experience to reduce and heal troubling symptoms. I invite into our sessions the parts of us that facilitates perceiving, thinking, sensing, feeling, remembering, imagining, expressing, connecting, and relating. I support clients to become more aware of different aspects of themselves - those aspects that support and contribute to their well-being, and those that constrain or stagnate their potential. Together, we work towards mind-body integration for renewed purpose and well-being. I offer a free 30 minute in-office consultation.

I believe every individual is unique and finding the strength to defend that uniqueness is my goal as a clinician. Many times, we find ourselves dwelling in a place of discomfort because we are in transit, in a new position, a new career, a new family or a new country. We are living constantly transitioning from one culture to another one, through life phases, starting new traditions. My goal is helping you to succeed in your own special journey.

You may think that big things have to change in your life in order for you to feel better and experience improvement. But I've come to believe that a key, gentle shift in perspective can bring about more positive change than many realize. That is a shift from taking a critical approach with yourself to taking a Kinder Approach. With this shift in how you approach yourself and your experiences comes greater self-awareness and feelings of confidence, hopefulness, empowerment and knowing your value. You can begin to see and feel new possibilities and choices for your life.

Being human can be hard! We are wired to be in relationship with one another, yet connection is hard for so many reasons. At an early age we learn and develop patterns of living and coping skills based on what was most adaptive at that time. On one hand, super smart! At the same time, these patterns can become outdated over time and no longer support the life or relationship(s) we want. Therapy creates an opportunity to explore, assess, and change the patterns that no longer serve us with compassion and curiosity.
