I specialize in relationships, adult attachment anxiety, codependency, childhood trauma (emotional neglect, alcoholism, narcissistic parenting), and major life transitions (times in a person's life which call for deep self-evaluation). I use humor, empathy, and alternative methods of healing to help you find your own path in life! While life is at times a Tragi-Comedy, we can walk through the fire and free ourselves from the grips of anxiety, inner criticism and fear of loss.
Feeling down? Stressed? Going through a transition? Struggling with relationships? Whether you are coping with an immediate stressor, looking to change long-standing bahaviors or gain greater self-awareness, as a licensed psychologist, I am here to help. I believe the foundation for successful therapy lies in a supportive, non-judgmental and empathic therapeutic relationship through which one can explore and understand relationship dynamics, emotional themes, and maladaptive behaviors and thought patterns with the goal of increasing self-awareness and creating a fuller, happier life. I approach therapy from a positive perspective and try to harness each individuals strengths to build skills and create change.

Twenty years of experience working with families of kids who have trouble fitting in. Most have difficulty regulating their mood and behavior and are wired differently than other kids. The focus of my work is to understand why certain behaviors repeatedly occur and to help families and schools develop better ways of dealing with those problems. Many of these children/adults carry diagnoses of ASP/HFA, ADHD, and/or MOOD REGULATION DISORDER. Most have sensory regulation, attention and communication problems. Please call me to see if I am a good match for your family.
I believe that people have the capacity for change. Often it is difficult to find the tools on our own to heal. We are blocked by destructive patterns brought on my traumatic events and simple life experiences that create automatic thoughts and beliefs. By creating awareness of this I can guide people to find their own accountability and gain control of their life so that they can ultimately align with the person they would like to be. I can provide a holistic approach to mental health that provides my clients with mindfulness, movement and nutrition in an effort to empower my clients to feel their best.
