I enjoy working with new moms, both as it relates to the transition to parenthood and postpartum stress/depression. The birth of a child can be both exhilarating and overwhelming. I am passionate about working with moms to understand these wide range of powerful emotions and how to best manage them. As parents, we often reach out for help when it comes to support for our children but neglect our own struggles. I believe that one of the best things we can do as parents, is to understand how our own dysfunctions play a part in our children's lives.

With over thirty years of experience in private practice, I have noticed how sometimes long-standing behaviors can actually create personal problems, cause relationship difficulties, and undermine the achievement of life goals. Working together, we can explore and identify these behaviors and change them. Individual Therapy helps to build confidence as you begin to understand and take steps to modify personal challenges. Couples Therapy identifies and builds upon personal and relationships strengths to repair interpersonal distress. Group Psychotherapy enhances and deepens personal awareness so you improve your connections with others.

Life has turned upside down and is now full of uncertainty. Each day can feel overwhelming, stressful and isolating. At times, it can feel like you are drowning. You may be feeling exhausted from trying to balance work and home life, yet feel like you just can’t get things right. Again and again, it feels you are somehow falling short. Resentment builds. You’re feeling guilty and anxious, but still there seems to be overwhelming pressure to do more and give more.

Pain is an unavoidable and a necessary part of life. But suffering -- especially prolonged, "punishing" suffering -- is not. So many people seeking therapy suffer from anxiety, depression, difficulties in relationships, and self-sabotaging behaviors. We use defenses to avoid our emotions. Ironically emotions aren't the SOURCE of pain but in fact are there to HELP us HEAL from the painful losses, hurts and challenges of life. You don't come to therapy to talk about your week. You come for relief from your suffering, for a chance to work through and find meaning in your pain and, just as with a broken bone, heal stronger and better!
