Specifically I have experience with individuals struggling with anxiety, depression, stress management, parenting , life transitions, career counseling, and relationships.
Due to the current health climate, phone and video sessions are available. Seeking help can often be overwhelming. This process is one that should be based on relationships. The person must be someone willing to walk with you in a way that is trusting and respectful. These are attributes I strive to maintain in my day to day life.

I am also a Certified School Psychologist and a Board Certified Behavior Analyst and provide parent training for behavioral issues related to ADHD, ODD, and autism spectrum disorders.
Insight is good, but change is better! If you are struggling with anxiety, depression, or low self-esteem, you may have been "just living with it" for awhile. Ask yourself: "How would my life be different if I didn't feel this way?" Seeking support can be a scary step, but when you are ready for change, it can be an enjoyable process, even when it is hard work or explores painful issues. We can work together to determine the best way to achieve your goals in a warm, compassionate and non-judgmental environment.

I utilize a person-centered approach with my clients in which the therapeutic relationship is the driving force in helping to navigate issues involving behavior modification, depression, anxiety, grief, and parenting .
Taking the first step towards change is a challenge on its own but I believe that it does not have to be a lonely or a daunting process. Through my work with children, adolescents, adults, families, and parents in a variety of settings ranging from partial hospitalization/intensive outpatient, outpatient, and therapeutic supervised visitation, I have learned that simply a small desire for something different can be the catalyst for a profound transformation.

My work is often surrounding intergenerational trauma, parent -child conflict, child abuse/neglect, and relationship issues.
Taking the first step of looking for a therapist is a major accomplishment, but can also leave people with many questions. Is this person going to be a good fit for me? What can I expect from therapy? As your therapist, it is my job to ease this process for you by creating a non-judgmental and empathetic space for you. Many of the children and adults I work with identify that they have challenges communicating with others, feel misunderstood, experience periods of self-doubt, and want to develop a stronger sense of connectedness to their family and friends. When people begin to work with me, I want them to feel safe and validated.

I work with a wide range of emotional issues, including anxiety, depression, stressful life situations, trauma, couples problems, parenting problems, obesity, low self esteem, Attention Deficits, performance anxiety, athlete injuries and illnesses and obstacles to motivation.
I opened the Center for Mindful Change, LLC with the knowledge that the reason we have such difficulty changing our life's direction (how many times have we promised ourselves that we won't "ever" over drink, over eat, procrastinate, use anger, let others control us...) is that we are not mindful of our own internal and external energies that drive us to act the way we do. Through your work with me, you will find the personal insight and empowerment to change the way you approach life, meeting stresses and challenges with mindfulness and self-determination for success.

I offer both individual and couples/martial or family psychotherapy, and can also provide parenting consultation or counseling directly to children or adolescents.
For many, counseling offers the possibility of making a lasting and positive change in your life. Physical, emotional and environmental wellness all factor into one's mental health. Many issues can contribute to challenges with mental health including situational stressors such as loss, relationship conflicts, employment struggles and life transitions. In addition to these stressors, some people struggle with issues from childhood or unhealthy patterns that sabotage their relationships. A good therapist should believe in their clients potential for change, growth, and healing. I offer a supportive and non-judgmental environment that works in partnership with my clients.

I believe that we all want to feel heard and understood, and experience feeling whole. These longings are inherent to the human experience. Therapy is an opportunity for me to partner with you to co-create a space that allows for this process to occur. My journey as a social worker started when I was in my 20’s and I have spent much of my life in the helper role. Personally/professionally, I have met all kinds of people, and experienced many circumstances, which have led me to develop strong therapeutic connections with individuals and families. I am non-judgmental and strength-focused, which allows for a safe space during therapy.

Parenting Therapists

What does therapy for parenting look like?

Therapists may work with parents individually, together, or include the whole family to find solutions for the problems a parent faces. Many parent-based therapies work on a parent’s relationship with their children, problem-solving within the family, and analysis of family dynamics. Therapy conducted remotely by video may be helpful in allowing a therapist to observe how families interact in their own homes.

When should a parent seek therapy?

When behavioral problems begin to disrupt the healthy functioning of a family, it may be a good time to look into therapy. If parents find that children are acting out in school, have started using drugs or alcohol, have developed eating disorders, or other similar red flags, a therapist may be able to help.

How long does therapy take for parenting problems?

Depending on the severity of a family’s challenges and the type of treatment utilized, therapy for parenting can last from weeks to months. Cognitive behavioral therapy is a pragmatic therapy type that can be brief, most often ranging from between 5 and 20 sessions. Structural family therapy, which inspects family dynamics, often takes several months. Parent-child interaction therapy is typically shorter-term, lasting between 10 and 20 sessions. For any therapy, the duration will depend on the progress made and results realized.

Can therapy help parents dealing with burnout or stress?

Parenting is difficult. Parents may dismiss or conceal feelings of exhaustion, overwhelm, or escape ideation—imagining withdrawing from their parental obligations altogether. but left unattended, these feelings can have negative effects on the whole family. A therapist can help parents work on the skills they might need to better cope with the burdens of parenting and help them be the best parents they can be.
