Instead of fighting problems together, you’re now fighting each other. You don’t know when this happened, but you no longer feel connected to and loved by your partner, and there are days when you find yourself thinking if maybe it would be better to end this relationship. Maybe it started when your child was born, or maybe you’re just now realizing that the two of you have somehow drifted apart. You feel you’ve tried everything, and nothing seems to help. You feel stuck and uninspired with being in a marriage that feels nothing more than roommates sharing the same bed, but you know you want more for your relationship.

I specialize in the treatment of maternal depression (both prenatal and postpartum), with a specific focus on reducing depressive symptoms, improving relationships, and creating lasting change. Many women come to therapy feeling stuck or trapped in the confines of their depression, and often hopeless about freeing themselves from their feelings of sadness and despair. I believe that everyone, despite current challenges, has the capacity to improve their lives and enjoy a rich and meaningful life. Therapy provides the help and support to formulate a way out of whatever is holding you back from having the life you want.
I have practiced clinical psychology for 35 years. I love the process of helping people explore, understand and work through the deepest problems, conflicts and struggles of their lives and relationships. We all struggle: it is the human condition! Every person's life experiences are unique and deeply personal, as are the meanings attached to those experiences. For me the complexities and subtleties of each person's narrative are endlessly varied and fascinating, worthy of the deepest attention and respect. Not many are as privileged in their work as I am!

During treatment, we will work together to recognize how your current life situation is being directly affected by past events and relational (or interpersonal) patterns.

These are people seeking a sounding board, a safe confidential place to talk, and extensive knowledge and experience dealing with their issues. My work focuses on where the client is now, and where they want to go, with no pre-conceived notions. We look at past experiences together and how they impact the present. For parents, I offer coaching and suggestions for managing challenging behaviors, and understanding the impact of early childhood trauma of behavior.

Searching for a psychologist, particularly over the web, can be a really hard thing to do. Just looking at the word "therapy" can make some folks feel uncomfortable. Sometimes these experiences stop people from obtaining much needed relief from bothersome problems. If you are on this site, you have made an important move towards feeling a whole lot better. I think choosing the right person to help you exchange "problems" for "coping skills" is a great start. My hunch about successful therapy is that it is a combination of good planning, hard work, mutual liking and sometimes a dose of good humor.
I am a licensed clinical psychologist with extensive experience working with parents to address a variety of behavioral concerns in young children, including disruptive behaviors (e.g., tantrums, noncompliance/defiance, verbal/physical aggression), sleep disturbance, normative fears, and anxiety.
Are you going through a divorce, facing a job loss or another stressful life transition?
