As a licensed psychologist I have two initial goals: 1) To provide a safe, supportive environment. 2) To build a good, trusting relationship with my clients. Building a safe, trusting relationship allows me to collaborate with clients to help them feel better and make positive changes. I specialize in treating people who have a history of sexual and/or physical abuse, neglect, and sexual assault. In addition, I help people struggling with depression, low self esteem, anxiety, anger, relationship and family problems.

Times of crisis are not only occasions that require mindful problem-solving, but can also be opportunities for personal growth. Psychotherapy should provide a calm and supportive setting to reduce anxiety and stress, increase a sense of confidence and competence, and promote the establishment of more satisfying connections to others. My training encompasses psychodynamic, experiential, cognitive-behavioral, and family systems therapy. I work actively and collaboratively with individuals (from 8 to 85), couples, and families. I also provide neuropsychological evaluations for children and adults experiencing difficulties in personal, academic, or occupational functioning.

Individual, family , and parent sessions are available to further assist you/your child in integrating these skills into every day life.
Are you feeling anxious, depressed, overwhelmed, or lost? Are loved ones worried about changes in your mood? Is your child experiencing trouble at home or at school or having problems making or keeping friends? Is your child acting out or having difficulty managing his/her emotions? Some of these aforementioned behaviors are natural parts of life's transitions, while others can be signs of serious distress. I believe all people can be resilient, but I also believe that it is my job to help give you the tools to be successful. If you have concerns for you or your child, therapy can be the start of positive change.

I have over 15 years of experience counseling individuals, family and couples through everyday challenges as well as life changing events including grief, loss and trauma.
Do you ever feel like you “should” have everything sorted and things “should” be moving along as planned, but for some reason they are not? You have moments where you feel okay, even some days you feel good, but then even more moments where you feel overwhelmed, anxious and unsure about the future. Do you feel stuck, like you’re not in control of your own story? Are you ready to be more present, to find and cultivate greater levels of joy, peace and balance in a world that seems to be full of uncertainty. Together, I believe we can reach past our old habits and expand our ways of being and experiencing life with courage and grace.

I have advanced training in PTSD, grief, disaster mental health, addiction, family counseling/mediation.
People seek therapy for many reasons. Perhaps you are in a crisis, confronting a life transition (divorce, retirement, death, illness, empty nest, new relationship), having difficulty coping with work stress, using/abusing substances, or "feeling stuck" and unable to make positive life changes. I believe that most of us have blind spots - emotional patterns or behaviors that can get in the way of our healing or fully exploring life’s challenges and opportunities. My role is to provide clinical insight and guidance that is collaborative and respectful, supporting your unique journey toward recovery and growth.

A unique aspect of my treatment philosophy and practice is my flexibility in working with individuals and various family groups, in order to effect positive change in a family system, for the benefit of the primary client.
My orientation to psychotherapy is to approach every session as a creative undertaking, whether it is with an individual or a group, a couple or a family , a child, an adolescent, or an adult. This is true for every stage of the treatment process, beginning with engagement and problem clarification, with developing a working relationship based on trust, and moving constructively forward in relation to established objectives. The process of each session involves engaging purposefully to facilitate problem resolution, newness, and growth. When appropriate the course of treatment can be as brief as three sessions.

It is difficult to share your challenges and struggles because there is a lack of emotional support from friends, family , and significant others. When there is an opportunity to share your struggles, it feels as if you are judged or misunderstood. In most situations, all we need is support, regardless of the decisions we make, and a third party to lend an honest, neutral and supportive ear. When life gets hard, we encounter setbacks and need guidance along the way. I look forward to being that third-party to actively listen to your challenges and provide guidance and support throughout your journey.

Therapy provides an opportunity for us to grow and become our most authentic selves.

I use an eclectic approach grounded in relational, psychoanalytic theory. I offer a personalized approach tailored to each person’s needs, interests, and goals which may include short term, skills -based training and/ or a more depth- oriented treatment that gets to the core of the problem with the aim toward lasting change.

My clinical experience has allowed me to gain a deeper understanding of the impact of our environment and relationships, as well as the positive shifts that can take place when offered supportive and validating resources.

Whether you are dealing with difficult emotions, self-defeating behaviors, relationship/parenting issues, or just a feeling that something is off, attuned and compassionate therapy can help.

Family Therapy

What do family therapists do?

A family therapist facilitates the process of understanding and improving how a family functions. The therapist will help family members develop empathy for one another. They’ll seek to understand existing patterns, misunderstandings, and conflicts that arise, in order to help the family arrive at a realistic, unified understanding and develop the coping skills they need to build stronger relationships.

How long does therapy for families take to work?

Therapy manifests differently in every family; a common time frame is 12 weekly sessions, but some families may see improvement after just a few weeks. Families should discuss their goals with the therapist at the beginning of the process and periodically revisit those goals to assess their progress together.

How can you encourage a family member to attend family therapy?

You can encourage family members to attend therapy by expressing with both love and concern the challenges you see and explaining how a therapist could help the family navigate those challenges together. An outside perspective can help everyone feel heard, get on the same page, and develop new skills. If family members are still hesitant, it may be helpful to emphasize that family therapy is short-term—it won’t last forever.

Is therapy for families effective?

Family therapy can significantly improve family dynamics and relationships. Research suggests that family therapy can help individuals understand their role in the family, communicate and solve problems together, reduce conflict and draw boundaries when necessary, and develop coping skills for stressors, major life changes, and mental or physical illnesses within the family.
