I work with individuals to help them increase self-awareness and lead happier lives. My unique background makes me different than most therapists. In addition to being a licensed therapist, I have a PhD in Philosophy. As a therapist and life coach, I help individuals struggling with relationships, codependency, sexual compulsivity, and substance/alcohol abuse. I also work with adult children of alcoholics, those who grew up in families where emotional chaos and parent addiction may be affecting their adult relationships. In addition, I work with gay individuals and couples.

I have worked in the mental health field for 10 years. I believe Mental health is about more than absence of symptoms or illness, it is about well being. I believe that therapy can do more than just reduce symptoms. It can help build resilience and skills to face future challenges and obstacles.

My goal is as a therapist is to assist clients in becoming their own best advocate as they negiotiate personal life challenges. I have a special interest in mind body awareness and have incorporated meditative and relaxation strategies and biofeedback in my therapeutic work with clients from childhood through late adulthood. Additionally, I have trained ten years in Neurofeedback, a very specialized type of biofeedback, that engages the brain in changing itself. this is particularly helpful with chronic mental health issues including, but not limited to, ADD, Anxiety, Depression, Chronic Pain Syndromes, and PTSD. Neurofeedback is also beneficial for Peak Performance Training.

I worked on a Stanford University inpatient child/ adolescent psychiatry unit for 10 years and treated children, adolescents and families who presented with depression, anxiety disorders, trauma, divorce, parent/child conflicts, attachment issues, sexual orientation and identity disorders etc Currently, I treat adolescents , individuals (all ages) and couples.
People arrive at a therapist's office, having tried their best way of getting along in the world, regardless of age, ethnicity, religion, sexual orientation and so forth. A universal reason for seeking help is distress in a primary relationship. In therapy, I help individuals understand how past relationships with parents, siblings and significant others impacts relationship troubles in the here and now. A trusting therapeutic relationship offers an opportunity for exploration of one's own mind at the deepest level - healing, new pathways of relating, greater authenticity, vitality & living a life that's true to one's self.

Do you wake up dreading the day, the monotony of eat, sleep, repeat? Are you struggling to create a life that you feel in control of? Whether you are an adolescent or adult, these feelings can often get stuck in our minds and bodies and seem to determine the trajectory of our days. Sometimes it seems hard to remember to celebrate the small victories and spend our time waiting for those BIG moments. We forget that the small things are what makes up our lives, and I want to help you find joy in the times where everything seems dark and scary. You are deserving of a space free from judgment.

My ideal client seeks relief from pain; strength from hurt; courage from fear and freedom from enslavement. Their needs are to have or develop support, patience, devotion, and persistence. Their goal is to be themselves but, with a twist to make them the most amazingly mature, beautifully kind version of themselves. That may sound cheesy, but there is no ideal client because all of the above are ideal issues clients have. The imperfect is perfect for different people.

We all need a shoulder at times, a compassionate and empathetic ear. There are things that you just can’t say to loved ones in your life. And sometimes there are things you can’t get a handle on by yourself. You are not alone. I work with adolescents and adults who need a place to speak freely without judgement and be heard.

Teen Therapists
Adolescence can be a time of both disorientation and discovery. The transitional period can raise questions of independence and identity; as adolescents cultivate their sense of self, they may face difficult choices about academics, friendship, sexuality, gender identity, drugs, and alcohol.

Most teens have a relatively egocentric perspective on life; a state of mind that usually abates with age. They often focus on themselves and believe that everyone else—from a best friend to a distant crush—is focused on them too. They may grapple with insecurities and feelings of being judged. Relationships with family members often take a backseat to peer groups, romantic interests, and appearance, which teens perceive as increasingly important during this time.

The transition can naturally lead to anxiety about physical development, evolving relationships with others, and one's place in the larger world. Mild anxiety and other challenges are typical, but serious mental health conditions also emerge during adolescence. Finding a teen therapist in Dunes, Albany and addressing a disorder early on can help ensure the best possible outcome.
