Working with adults, children, families, and couples, my experience of more than 30 years in both clinical and school psychology has helped to define my role as a therapist. My major areas of practice are anxiety, stress management, depression, parenting issues, relationship issues, marital issues and divorce management, ADHD in both adults and children, school-related issues and workplace issues. I attempt to empower clients to change self-defeating behavior patterns based on negative thinking and faulty learning experiences.

Have you ever said: "No one ever taught me how to be a parent or spouse?" Perhaps navigating the relationships at work is posing a challenge. I help clients look at patterns of communication and behaviors that aren't working and help them understand their origins. Together, we develop an understanding of what is causing the difficulties so that we may address them successfully. I've been a psychologist for 25 years, helping clients enhance their relationships with family members, friends and colleagues. While much of my work is with adults, I am also a child psychologist.

I find my passion in helping individuals by exploring ways to create positive change in their lives. I enjoy working with all age ranges – whether a teenager who needs to find his way in a complicated, confusing world or a single parent struggling to manage work and raise a teen. Another area to which I‘m drawn is helping others navigate their romantic pathways.

If you are a parent , child, adolescent, or young adult who is struggling, please contact me so I can do my best to help you out.
I am a firm believer in encouraging positivity, bolstering self-efficacy, and cultivating independence in others. My typical client is a child, adolescent, or young adult (age 3 to 29) who may be struggling academically, socially, or with developing effective emotional coping skills. Often, the individuals I see have difficulty with attention, concentration, organization, and with meeting the daily demands required of them at school. I also offer much support to parents who may be frustrated with their attempts at connecting with their kids and who are in need of guidance relating to discipline techniques and behavior management.

Hey mom! Are you overextended, overwhelmed, and overcompensating? I get it parenting is hard! Meeting the demands of your family, your work, and everyone’s opinions is weighing you down. The only thing more exhausting are your own expectations of yourself. It’s a race you just can’t win! And what’s worse you feel like you’ve lost your sense of the real you. I get your struggle and I can help.

Sometimes we feel alone, misunderstood, scared. Other times we feel anger, turmoil, overwhelmed. It can be a painful past which still gives us no peace, or a fork in the road ahead which confuses us. We may have no way to settle our fears. Children may be challenging us, or we may be observing them struggle in their personal lives. Relationships may be unsettling or disappointing. What we all want is happiness, inner peace. Gratifying relationships. Pride in our parenting . A way to move on from past traumas and allow us to feel free again.

Some of the issues may be related to anxiety, trauma, self-esteem, couples, parenting , divorce/separation, anger management, military, grief and loss.
I understand how difficult it is to find a therapist that you can connect with, especially in those difficult moments when you just want someone to understand what you are going through. Together there is no question that we can't answer and there is no problem that we can't find possible solutions. I believe therapy is an effective tool that can help manage our lives and lead us to feel better and accomplish our goals.

I have specialized training and experience in complex/developmental trauma, relationships, parenting , and issues of mood/emotional regulation.
Welcome! My belief in the healing potential of psychotherapy is grounded in the decades of research on attachment, trauma and the body, and relational neuroscience. Our early relationships and experiences, including trauma, form the lens through which we experience our day-to-day lives. By understanding distressing patterns in our here-and-now functioning as remnants of protective and adaptive functioning in early life, we can move towards change from a place of self-compassion and deep understanding.

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.
