Trained in Dialectical Behavior Therapy from Behavioral Tech, I treat both adolescents and adults who struggle with a variety of emotional and behavioral issues. DBT is a skills based program that has been effective in teaching individuals to replace destructive behaviors with more effective skills. The ultimate goal of DBT is to decrease suffering by increasing behaviors that are consistent with a life worth living.

Getting to the core of why you think, act, and behave the way you do is the key to creating the life you want — the life you’re meant to live. If you’re someone who’s felt stuck, keeps coming back to the same destructive patterns, or has tried therapy before but didn’t gain lasting change, you have come to the right place.

I have a Spiritual/psychological approach. See my new book, "The Great Cosmic Lesson Plan."I believe we are all connected to each other via a higher power.thus-there is a constant mind body spirit interplay-through which we create our lives. I integrate cognitive therapy, meditation, hypnosis, prayer and humor into the therapy. all human beings have "issues." We all have some guilt, anger and fear. The essence of therapy is learning how to "let go," enabling us to become happier. we are more attuned to the higher power. My ideal client would be open to letting go.

There are so many profiles and acronyms after people's names on this website, and you just want some help with a mental health issue, life stressors, or maybe you're not entirely sure what you need help with. Perhaps the pandemic has just rocked your world, and things haven't quite gotten back to where it used to be for you. And you're here because a friend or family member encouraged you to look for some help, but now, it's kind of overwhelming with all of these profiles and degrees and specialities.

Motivation, warmth, encouragement and a supportive environment is at the core of all treatment I provide to both individuals and families. Therapy is an important tool for anyone looking for deeper growth both personally and emotionally. I have been afforded the opportunity to treat those combating anxiety, ADHD, depression, identity issues, life transition concerns, marital conflict, parenting stress, and relationship friction. The work has allowed me to treat individuals and families at all life stages, each with different backgrounds and personal histories, but always with a meaningful connection formed in the process.

Together we will explore: managing unrealistic expectations of motherhood and life, regulating parenting -related stress, customizable parenting strategies, finding the balance between who you were before having kids and the life you lead now, a practical mindfulness approach to help you live and enjoy your family and your life.
There is a lot that pulls you in a thousand directions as a mom. You're expected to run a seamless household, support your family, spend time with friends, and look good while doing it all. Advice from family and friends doesn't help much, and instead it leaves you more confused. Your older family members suggest parenting with a heavy hand how you were raised, but that doesn't feel good to you, or your kids. You wonder... how is it that other mothers seem to have it all together? You can allow motherhood to take over your well-being, or you can get support from a licensed therapist - who looks like you and totally gets it.

Let's face it, it's not easy coming to the decision to seek out counseling, let alone calling a complete stranger to do so. My hope is that, if you decide to take this step to contact me, we will not be strangers for long. I have been a clinician in various capacities for over 15 years and have always worked very hard to make people feel comfortable talking to me. During those years I have developed a general practice where I have seen people for anxiety, depression, parenting , marriage and sexuality.

I have a deep understanding of special needs parenting , health challenges, trauma, adoption and mental illness in the family.
Therapy for individuals, couples, or families should be a safe space to explore personal needs and goals. Using a broad lens we consider all of the factors and systems as we work collaboratively and with transparency towards strengthening your sense of yourself and the relationships that are impacting you. We consider cycles of interaction as well as vulnerabilities and survival strategies and areas where you may be getting stuck in long repetitive cycles. Together we identify new strategies and strengths to create new experiences. Therapy can be a strengthening journey of opportunity and growth.

I work with adults; I have extensive experience in doing parent -child developmental consultations (at-home consults for toddlers); psychological and neuro-psychological testing.
Tema Therapy is a multi-lingual Center created to serve the various needs of people and families who consider being multi-cultural or multi-lingual as a part of their identity. The founder of this facility, Dr. Irina Volynsky, had multiple experiences of being asked to evaluate or work in therapy with children and adults whose native language was not English, who were misdiagnosed, and were not receiving appropriate help. Upon further consideration, the barrier presented was not only about the language but also about the different cultural context in which norm and pathology were understood differently.

I am experienced at working on issues of depression, anxiety, grief, marital conflict resolution, adolescent conflict resolution, parenting , and chronic illness.
I am an experienced therapist with a keen sensitivity to my clients' needs, and a deep understanding of their issues. I work with a diverse clientele, and I help my clients manage a wide spectrum of situations that arise in their lives. People come when they are overwhelmed, stressed out, experiencing work issues, marriage troubles, school problems, etc. I work with them to teach them new skills, or to help them realize that they have the skills they need, but are not using them in the most advantageous way. This process of learning and change is the essence of psychotherapy.

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.
