For over 20 years, I have been working with adolescents, young adults and adults. I specialize in issues such as anxiety, depression, trauma, divorce, relationships as well as women's issues related to aging, hormones and self care. Today's world is filled with uncertainty and is impacting people's sense of safety and control. I support clients in identifying areas they want to see change and then we collaborate together on understanding their thoughts/patterns that impact their well being and their relationships. I have a supportive, non-judgemental and direct approach in counseling and psycho-educating clients.

For couples who are separating or divorcing, I am trained as a mediator, a collaborative divorce coach, child specialist, and a parent coordinator.
Selecting a therapist is an important decision. I believe that creating an environment where the client feels that the therapist has listened, shown empathy, and has genuine concern are some of the core conditions for a therapeutic relationship. Providing a client with helpful feedback in this safe, empathic environment promotes change and growth. A client that I work with may have a variety of concerns including having a relationship issue, going through a separation, having parenting concerns, experiencing depression, anxiety, or problems related to alcohol or drug misuse or abuse.

Most people contemplate therapy at a point where life's stressors have become so intense that talking about these things can be very difficult and even embarrassing. However, making a decision to seek therapy is an act that reflects a great deal of humility and self-love. If you or your family have been experiencing symptoms of depression, anxiety, or grief, my practice is well experienced in helping you during this healing process. Additionally, we have worked with families who were experiencing conflict due to separation, divorce, child welfare involvement, exposure to trauma, or just non-compliant/defiant behavior.

Using a psychodynamic and IFS (Parts Work) approach, I provide therapy for individual adults, couples, and families. Patients learn to recognize patterns in their behaviors that are causing them discomfort. Through the therapeutic approach and the therapeutic relationship, patients begin to make meaning of their internal system thus enabling them to utilize new ways of coping with grief, transitions (newly married, divorce, raising children, new job, relocation), anxiety, and past trauma.

In my 25 years as a therapist I've successfully treated clients navigating life's inevitable transitions (graduation, relocation, marriage, divorce, career change, a break-up, major decisions, etc.), as well as those experiencing various forms of anxiety. I have lived experience with blended families and understand the complexities of parenting, partnering, and growing up within that framework. I work first to understand each person's unique set of circumstances, and then to identify strengths on which we can build to help clients lead happier, more joy-filled lives. Life is far too precious and short to lead a "meh" existence.

Divorce Therapists

How does therapy for people affected by a divorce work?

Individuals may feel a number of emotions following a divorce, such as shock, guilt, grief, anger, and fear. Therapists offer a non-judgmental space for individuals to talk about what they’ve experienced and process their emotions. Therapists will help clients develop coping strategies. They can also help a client rebuild their sense of self and self-worth and talk about what a happier future might look like.

What’s the most common type of therapy following a divorce?

There are several types of therapy that may be useful for divorce, including cognitive behavioral, acceptance and commitment, solution-focused brief, and mindfulness-based therapies. Many therapy types are talk-therapy based, which is typically the most popular option for individuals dealing with divorce. Cognitive behavioral therapy is a widely-used talk therapy, however, there’s no specific therapy type that’s designed to help people with divorce, and different types will work depending on the person.

When should an individual seek help due to a divorce?

When the feelings of a divorced individual, or an individual going through the process of divorce, begin to disrupt healthy daily functioning, it may be a good time to look into therapy. If a person finds that they are not performing at work due to problems with anxiety or motivation, if they’re no longer seeing friends due to feelings of shame, or if they’re not properly taking care of themselves as a result of depression, speaking to a professional could help.

How do you encourage someone to go to therapy due to a divorce?

It’s helpful to express concern and love for the individual while framing therapy as a tool for improving their life. Sharing how the individual appears to be suffering, and what effects it has on them or on their children, should be done with compassion and empathy. It may be useful to devise a game plan—breaking the process down into parts, such as finding a therapist, making appointments, and looking into insurance coverage.
