"If you or your child has anxiety, ADHD, or depression, you probably feel frustrated and overwhelmed. You want the best for your self and your family and you may have reservations about using medications. You don't have to struggle alone anymore. I want to hear your experience and help you have more harmony in your life and in your home. While talk therapy can be supportive, some issues are brain based and need a different kind of guidance. Neurofeedback is a brain training program that supports you or your child in changing these patterns."

I provide therapy in English and Spanish. My style is warm and direct. I have specialized training in EMDR (eye movement desensitization and reprocessing), which is an evidence-based practice shown to be effective in decreasing psychological distress caused by disturbing life experiences and trauma. My clients have told me that they appreciate my openness, curiosity, engaging style, and sense of humor."

"You are uncomfortable - Something is bothering you. You need resolution about an issue, event, experience or relationship. I work in a collaborative/relational model with people who have had experiences that they have not had the opportunity to fully integrate yet. I use talk therapy, imagery, metaphor, hypnosis, EMDR, Positive Psychology, and Sensorimotor. Often clients report being disinterested in a formerly distressing topic after treatment. I'm comfortable working many types of issues including trauma, PTSD, ACA, sexual abuse, panic attacks or phobias, anxiety or depression, sorrow, people who have suffered losses or relationship breakups, people with mysterious physical ailments."

"Some people pursue therapy because they love personal growth and self-exploration, but many of us come to therapy as a last resort or because our current experience is no longer tolerable. Even when we're suffering however, change can feel intimidating or unattainable. It can feel safer to remain in the discomfort of habitual patterns and experiences than to take a leap of faith into the unknown. It takes courage to pursue change, but if you are reading this, even if you are scared or doubtful, you have the courage required to heal and I am here to help."

"There comes a time for many of us when we need to seek additional help, even when we have a strong, loving support network. Therapy is different than other types of support. It is goal-directed, and aimed toward self-discovery and accessing your own internal abilities. It is a collaboration between you, the expert on yourself, and a skilled therapist who can assist you in navigating through difficult situations and healing painful parts of yourself. I see individuals struggling with depression, anxiety, trauma, relationship challenges, and difficult life transitions."

"Compassion and curiosity are the starting place for our exploration. Life is inherently challenging and difficult, and we all suffer from hurts large and small, past and present. And most of us are plagued by a strong inner critic who thinks they are helping but often shames and limits us. In spite of our best efforts, cycles of expectation and disappointment can leave us feeling confused, isolated, frustrated, and trapped in our habitual patterns. As Ta-Nehisi Coates put it, "I am marked by old codes, which shielded me in one world and then chained me in the next.""

"Authentic change happens from the inside out. It can't be veneered onto one's surface. Painful life experiences create a complex web inside that shapes a person's world. This web can limit one's ability to find joy and meaning in life. Psychotherapy offers a way to access deep emotional experience. As therapy proceeds connections will start to appear between past & current life experience. Problematic internal patterns will become visible and open to reevaluation and change. As internal stress decreases, clarity, joy and meaning will have the chance to emerge."

"Initiating therapy can be a daunting and challenging process, and that begins with selecting a therapist around whom you will feel comfortable, safe and respected. To help you with that process, I'll start by sharing a few things about myself. I became a therapist because I discovered that it was a large part of who I am. Even at an early age, I found that I was often the person others felt safe to let their guard down with - to share what was happening below the surface, and to seek out my advice."

""Grief does not change you...it reveals you."- John Green. Loss comes in many forms; death of a loved one, family trauma, end of a relationship or job, a move/loss of home, and health issues. Experiencing grief because of loss can make us turn away just when we need the most support. We can also get triggered at certain times, especially around the holidays. Reaching out takes courage and I provide a safe, nonjudgmental and caring space to help clients express complicated emotions, manage anxiety/sleep issues, learn coping skills and practice self-care during these life changing transitions."

"Crises and painful emotions can be the beginning of a journey toward transformation and wisdom. If you are looking for a deeper and more connected sense of yourself, and fulfillment in life, then you may be ready for a commitment to the therapeutic process. I believe my empathic presence - the capacity to hear, see and feel a situation from the other person's vantage point- is central to the healing process. Within such a safe relationship the patient can develop an open attitude toward the unconscious; exploration of the meaning and purpose of one's life can unfold."
