I love "pushy parents," who feel as though they live in IEP meetings, and on the phone with healthcare providers. I love parents who push for their children, because who else will? Similarly, I love working with young people who have "behavioral problems," "worry too much," have "big emotions," or struggle socially. My clients are typically too smart, too creative and under-appreciated. Parents who come to my office often wonder: a) "will this help?" b) "will you understand my child?" and "c) if you understand my kid, will you then judge me?" My answers are a) "yes. It can even be fun" b) "that's my main goal" c) "not a chance."

Everyone is born without shame. We arrive naturally curious & creative with a clear & healthy sense of self. Then disturbing things happen that change us. Memories & feelings get frozen in our brains and change us. This can happen from devastating events, like accidents, molestation, loss, and violence & also from hurtful patterns in families or school that erode one's sense of worth, like bullying, humiliation or rejection. Adverse life events & trauma can change our self-esteem, impact relationships & create unhealthy coping behaviors. EMDR is an evidence-based, proven treatment that can help make lasting change.

Is it time for you to reach out for support and guidance? I have had the opportunity for over 25 years to assist people towards better understanding of themselves, their relationships, and critical life experiences. Often people want to learn how to communicate their needs more clearly, manage personal and workplace stress, or seek safety, empowerment, and wellbeing. Some people want to talk about feelings, experiences, or thoughts that are difficult to express to others or that seem to interfere with their daily lives and relationships. What I do is work together with you towards your goal using a cognitive behavioral approach.

In your psychotherapy with me, I will aim to help you feel understood as we explore the life difficulties you have faced, and currently face. I emphasize empathy in my work, and provide a safe environment in which to help you process your painful experiences and understand how they may be influencing your current struggles. Unprocessed emotional pain is commonly at the core of the symptoms we experience; yet it is often dismissed or suppressed. We will process your feelings and experiences to help make sense out of them and reduce your symptoms.

Therapy is a process of self-discovery that often entails delving into past relationships and trauma to uncover their affect on our relationships with ourselves, our families and the outside world. My work with children, adolescents, individuals, couples and families is designed to restore trust, joy and zest and to develop meaningful connections and skills to thrive-mindfulness, authenticity and inner strength. As a Dyadic Developmental Psychotherapist (DDP), I work with various subsets of the family and bring an attachment focused interpersonal neurobiological approach to create a safe and supportive environment to nurture healthy individuals, couples and families in any orientation or socio-economic status.
