As needed, I incorporate strong parent consultation and school consultation.
I am a licensed psychologist with 20 years of experience and am committed to helping children, adults, and families to grow, connect, and experience more joy in their lives. My treatment and consultation services range from evaluation and short term support to comprehensive intervention. I aim to identify strengths and to support insight and skill building to help others develop positive well-being, cultivate healthy relationships, and navigate life challenges. While I support clients as they make active, positive changes in their lives, I also help individuals and families experience healthier tolerance of distress in adaptive ways.

As a therapist & a PEP Parent Educator, I have helped hundreds of parents solve parenting challenges.
Life may be harder than you expected. You may feel stressed, depressed, or anxious. You may be struggling with a decision. Relationships with your family are complex. You may want to improve communication with your partner. Parenting is tough. You may have suffered a loss, & you don't know why it still affects you. You may have put a dream on hold while you attended to family matters, & now you wonder if you are still capable of fulfilling that dream. You may feel you have been given gifts, but you aren't using them to their full potential.

If you are struggling with issues that prevent you from being as happy as you would like, I can help. For over 35 years, I have specialized in working with children and adolescents, as well as adults and couples. I utilize play therapy with young children and look to their parents as partners in treatment. With older children and adolescents, I use various approaches depending on their emotional development and issues. For those of us a bit older, life transitions including college, marriage, becoming a parent and loss can be stressful, but also create opportunities for growth.

Depression, Anxiety, Relationships, Cross-Cultural issues, Divorce, Parenting Mood Disordered Children.
I believe in creating a safe, supportive space to understand oneself more deeply. As connection and trust evolve between myself and the client, a frank discussion about their identity, wishes, feelings, conflicts can be facilitated and understood. This can enable them make informed decisions regarding how to better navigate their lives. When a patient comes in crisis, I am also available as support, to help them return to a previous level of functioning. We try to learn the significance of this event, so as to use it as an opportunity to enrich the client's life.

I use AF-CBT (Alternatives for Families-CBT) and Parent Management Training when working with parents and families.
Many children and teens have difficulty managing their thoughts, feelings, and behaviors. I specialize in working with children and adolescents struggling with anxiety (such as Generalized Anxiety Disorder, Social Anxiety, OCD, and more), depression, emotion regulation, and stress management related to school, family, and peers. Working collaboratively with each client to help them learn healthy coping skills and healthy decision-making skills is an essential part of treatment. Working with parents to help them learn skills to better support their children can also be an important part of treatment.

Being home with your kids in a pandemic is a LOT to handle. It feels impossible to keep on top of online schoolwork, get meals ready, and get your own work done. You're exhausted. And that means more fights with your partner, too. You just need a moment to yourself. To relax and regroup. You're so ready for the kids to go back to school. But you're dreading that moment too. You remember the phone calls about classroom behavior and unfinished assignments. And the meltdowns over drama with friends. You're not sure you're ready to handle all that again. But it CAN get better. Now, and in the future.

Exhausted adults raising worried and distracted children are welcome here! I truly enjoy working with parents, helping them truly see and understand the special spark their children possess. Working with children and adolescents energizes me - their words, actions, or inactions powerfully communicate if we are curious enough to wonder. I employ a humanistic approach with a down-to-earth style, engaging in talk, play, art, and movement as well as cognitive behavioral interventions. I believe in educating my clients through the therapeutic process and am committed to bringing the best evidenced based approaches into our work.

Individuals can get stuck and couples often bicker over seemingly small stuff. The easy solutions don't work. Why? In many cases, those petty problems are tethered to larger meanings for the individuals. The real solutions need to address these deeper issues. I provide a place where individuals and couples can safely explore and clarify -- what's really going on here? With both individuals and couples, I encourage people to look inward -- how am I contributing to this impasse? How is this related to my history? And importantly, what can we do about it now?

I provide psychological evaluations and psychotherapy. The psychological evaluations are in two specialized areas: immigration cases and psychoeducational. The psychotherapy takes the form of individual, couples, family or group sessions. I have over 15 years of experience working closely with immigrants who require evaluation of their functioning or the functioning of their family members, for the purposes of an immigration petition. These evaluations include filing for asylum, extreme hardship impacting families of immigrants, domestic abuse petitions and waiver of citizenship exam.

My approach to therapy is creative and collaborative. I believe each individual – no matter their age or gender identity – is unique and should have a therapist who is genuine, practices unconditional positive regard, and has empathic understanding. In session, I will approach the client where they are and with what they may currently be experiencing. My approach starts with building a positive, warm, and trusting relationship. This will provide a foundation of support, encouragement, and connection, and after that the work can truly begin. I do not expect a client to work harder in our relationship than I am willing to do myself.

Often we wait until we have exhausted every measure before we seek professional help. You can start on your journey to healing, reconciliation, peace, and joy today. I believe that in times of adversity and struggle, we have the greatest potential for growth. It is often hard to see clearly how the difficulties we face will lead to positive changes, so instead we lose our way and get stuck in places of frustration, despair, and resentment. The change process is a journey-sometimes long and at times short. It is a process that gives us the opportunity to discover new ways of approaching our circumstances.
