"I enjoy collaborating with families to help them move through difficult challenges with intention and compassion. I frequently work with neurodevelopmental and life-adjustment challenges. This includes executive functioning issues, like ADHD, moodiness and depression, or anxiety due to high academic pressure, life stress, or divorce. I also work extensively with technology-related issues: healthy-mind balance, boundary setting, as well as mindfulness practices for relaxation and expanding frustration tolerance."

"You're smart and motivated. You've managed to create a good life and career. But there is anxiety or other demons you face on a daily basis that others would be shocked to know about. You often feel anxious and isolated, like you're walking around with a sign on your forehead that says "loser." Maybe it's hard to trust in relationships or you're constantly fighting off reminders of prior traumas, whether an abusive or neglectful childhood or something more recent. Many of my clients struggle with binge eating or disordered eating or other addictive behaviors. "

"Well-being involves having awareness of and connection to your self plus good connections with others. If you have struggled with distracting from your own experience, are lost in negative self evaluation, or if you have lost your curiousity about the world, face roadblocks or obstacles to your creativity and want to get relief, reclaim a sense of aliveness, vitality, presence, purpose or optimism - then I can be of help to you. I developed Emotional Pilates - the focus is on helping you build your core emotional strength, balance, flexibility and resilience, including learning how to speak your true experience."

"I'm told I'm warm, smart, and that I have a good sense of humor. (Sometimes my dog likes to sit in on sessions.) I believe therapy has got to change lives -- and be enjoyable. Unlike some therapists, I believe in setting goals and tracking progress. Why go to therapy without results? What's my specialty? Helping people free themselves from what holds them back. My approach combines Positive Psychology and CBT (cognitive behavioral therapy) with mindfulness and a creative mix of the best approaches known to modern psychology. "

"Like many people, you may be depressed, anxious, and tired of doing the same things over and over again without ever changing. You may be stuck in your career, your relationship, your life, not very happy with where you are, but not knowing how to get where you want to go. In my work, I utilize a safe, stimulating approach that combines time-honored understanding with cutting edge techniques. Unearthing the feelings behind repetitive patterns of behavior, I focus on breaking the grip of helplessness and hopelessness, generating new and more adaptive responses to the challenges of your life."

I find that the exploration of our interpersonal relationships, including the relationship between the therapist and client, can be helpful in overcoming internal conflicts we face in our lives. Furthermore I believe psychotherapy is a collaborative process which brings something unique to each patient-therapist relationship. Working together, we can uncover your personal needs and internal struggles, in real time, to better understand how to acknowledge and express these needs in your everyday life."

You might be suffering from the trauma of an abusive or neglectful childhood (developmental trauma). Or, as an adult, from the shock of recent or acute, traumatic events. I specialize in treating trauma and addictions, grief and loss, relationship issues, and mid-life transitions. Since trauma affects us psychologically and physically, it's necessary to treat both the mind and the body. I'm trained (certified) in brain/body therapies including: EMDR, Brainspotting, and NARM."

"Do you feel marginalized, dismissed and judged by social norms? Are you a part of a community that outsiders do not understand (vegan, LGBT, veteran). Perhaps these thoughts are competing with what you truly know about yourself. The anxiety and depression setting in are natural responses, but you deserve to be understood, respected and believed. Your thoughts are valid. You want to rebuild that self-esteem and find a meaningful community without being marginalized. You are ready to silence the naysayers and fully embrace yourself surrounded by a meaningful community. Do you want to feel understood by someone who really gets it?"
