Parenting a child with special needs or an adopted child who has experienced trauma requires extraordinary strength. Care-giving for aging parents presents similar demands that intensify our need for a listening ear and access to resources. If you are in the midst of the tension between managing a child or parent's medical and emotional needs while equipping him/her to independently provide as much self-care as possible, you could use some serious encouragement. The internal conflict that arises as you meet -- and fail to meet -- the parenting/care-giving challenge(s) is an experience not meant to be faced alone.

I think what is most important to each of us is a desire for connection. This is true for children as well as adults. To feel understood is central to a healthy self. As your therapist it is essential that I work to develop your trust and that together we begin to understand who you are.

Why do we do anything? I believe the reason that we do anything is to feel better. There may be 5 physical senses; however, we pursue life always in the hope of feeling better. We attract our life circumstances based on how we feel. Our active emotions create an emotional vibrational set point. When we learn to tend to our emotional health first, prior to engaging in action, we become the authors of our lives. Learning to find emotional alignment prior to engaging in activity, conversation, and interaction with others, will allow us to attract our wanted life desires. Thus, change your energy and you change your life.

Despite best efforts, the clients I work with find themselves frustrated, overwhelmed, or disheartened when trying to achieve goals, grieving a loss or navigating life’s unique challenges. They want to heal; disrupt patterns within themselves; or in relationships. Typically, they are open to the idea of “awakening” & want to feel more grounded within themselves & explore how they interact with the world. Through the lens of authentic compassion, they’re awakening or questioning our cultural conditioning that reinforces the idea that we are not enough. I create a genuine space for you to come as you are.

Psychotherapy is a powerful tool for breaking out of confusion and pain. For 21 years I have worked with people seeking help with depression, anxiety, grief, life transitions, job problems, trauma, gender identity issues, relationships, loneliness, anger, existential questions and unhappiness. One of my specialties is Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing (EMDR) which I find to be very effective method of treating post-traumatic stress resulting from trauma such as physical, sexual, or emotional abuse. I also have worked extensively with couples, helping them establish goals for the relationship, teaching communication and conflict resolution skills.
