I believe in collaborating with the people I serve and value the unique strengths they bring to their lives, as these strengths could be useful in dealing with challenges. I specialize in working with children, adolescents, and families on a wide range of issues, including adjustment difficulties due to change in life circumstances, anxiety, depression, family and marital issues, parenting, and school related difficulties. When evaluating difficulties and helping my client explore and find ways to improve the qualify of his/her life, I pay close attention to my client's history and family, social, and cultural influences.
**Currently, I am not accepting new clients.** It can be daunting to reach out when struggling with overwhelming feelings of distress. Often, our most difficult struggles go unsaid with those that we are close to for fear of stigma or isolation. If you are reading this, you have already taken the most important step. I believe that people are resilient, and have the ability to care for themselves, but often, the ways that we seek to alleviate pain and suffering cause more of the same. Alternatively, our feelings of stagnancy, loneliness, and hopelessness can sometimes be too overpowering to work through alone.

Children and adolescents today deal with a host of issues such as coping with stress and anxiety, navigating peer and family relationships, expressing feelings appropriately and managing developmental disorders. Understanding how to best express feelings and control behaviors can lead to improved relationships at school and home and increase self-esteem. I strive to help their children and teens make positive personal and social changes that they will benefit from over the course of their lives.
Trauma, stress, betrayal, loneliness, depression and anxiety all lead to psychological distress which impacts our minds, bodies and souls. I specialize in working with adults who struggle with anxiety, depression, bipolar, trauma and abuse recovery, and grief and loss. Our intimate relationships are crucial in promoting our wellbeing, yet sometimes those relationships become the source of our greatest pain. I also specialize in working with intimate relationship issues including infertility, communication, infidelity, divorce recovery, co-parenting, and blending of families.
Marriage or couples counseling is my specialty. My sole purpose is to help couples stay together. I help people create a strong foundation of trust, respect and commitment in their relationships. As clients rebuild this foundation they learn how to better express their love for each other. Couples will improve their communication skills with rational decision making, as opposed to destructive fighting. Couples must become more deliberate in their approach to each other by prioritizing their energy and time for each other. Treatment averages between 10 to 20 sessions over 6 months. When both individuals engage, the therapy is very successful.
Working with children requires knowing how children feel seen and heard.

She understands the importance of managing family systems and, therefore, aims to include parents so that skills practiced in treatment can be reinforced in the home.
