We can focus on communication styles that improve dynamics with family members and colleagues.
I come from the world of Narrative Post Modern Psychotherapy and have a practical, down to earth style with direct, candid conversation to keep the therapeutic relationship responsive to your needs. I work together with clients when designing short and long treatment plans, according to the diverse needs of individuals, couples and families. Since I am also a certified yoga therapist I am able to combine elements of advanced, personalized breath practices with tools from Cognitive Behavioral therapy. This evidence based combination is often highly effective when taught by a certified yoga therapist who also knows a client well.

My family therapy background is informed by attachment theory and a bio-psycho-social model of understanding each child's and each family member's individual differences.
Are you concerned about your child's developmental progress? Is your child having difficulty making friends or socializing? Is your child experiencing anxiety or fears? Is your family exhausted by the emotional impact of having a child with special needs? For the past 25 years I have worked with children and families in private practice, in school or at home. I specialize in helping families with children who have neurodevelopment disorders, behavior issues and children with anxiety.

If you're a high-achieving individual with frequent or intense anxiety, you may feel discouraged and frustrated by your symptoms. Constant worry, obsessions, disrupted sleep and sudden anxiety attacks can be debilitating, even for the most competent person. I work with successful professionals, including physicians, attorneys, executives, creatives and entertainers, and their family members; I know it can be hard to seek help when you are used to solving your own problems. However, anxiety symptoms are very treatable when you work with a professional who offers the most effective approach.

Family centered therapy looks at the dynamics and patterns of the whole family.
Life is quite challenging right now. Children and adolescents have been out of school for almost a year and that has been really difficult on families. My practice focuses on helping children find a sense of balance and purpose. Making a transition from home to school might also be a challenge. Through talk therapy, expressive arts, and mindfulness, I work with children and teens to build an emotional language. Learning to express oneself is a gift for life. I work closely with the family and often have a family session to work on routines and discipline.
