*Accepting clients through Telehealth* Life can be stressful, overwhelming and exhausting at times. We might see it in our kids, who struggle adjusting to a new change, or overcoming a situation. They throw tantrums, hit, or become overly shy and anxious. As we grow and experience life ourselves, things get more and more complicated. Family relationships, romantic life, career choices and work/life balance, are only a few examples. When changes, transitions, and bonds are overwhelming, therapy is an opportunity to gain insight about ourselves, let go, and welcome new possibilities.
As a clinical psychologist, I provide psychotherapy and psychological assessments to all, but specialize in working with children ages 0-12 who are experiencing behavioral, emotional and social difficulties. I also specialize in working with adults who are trying to heal from their childhoods, or improve their relationship with others.
If your child is having problems adjusting to life; if you are overwhelmed as a parent, as a partner, or in search of a romantic partner; if you feel that you cannot tolerate your own family, friends, or the demands of your career; I invite you to work together with me and with your loved ones, in finding new ways to embrace relationships and change.
