Have you wondered if your adolescent would benefit from video therapy? I offer a complimentary phone consultation to discuss any questions you may have. As a senior therapist at Zackson Psychology Group, I enjoy working with adolescents that may be struggling with adjustment to home school, anxiety, depression, ADHD, behavioral or family issues. You can talk to me about anything. I am accessible to parents and easy to talk to. I focus on your child, recognize their strengths, and develop tools to become their own therapist by learning how to deal with challenges. Clients often feel better early on in treatment.

I like to do a two session consultation. In the first session you will have the space to tell me what has prompted you to seek treatment at this time. And in the second, through careful and non-intrusive inquiry, we will delineate the personality patterns that might be underpinning your current concerns. From there you can decide to work with me, I can help you find another therapist that better meets your needs, or we can simply part ways. The choice is yours, and the increased understanding is yours to keep!

We all want to be seen and understood by those we love, yet relationships are challenging. We can have trouble connecting, both within ourselves and with others. It can be hard to be our authentic selves and stand in our own truth. Your personality and life experiences make you unique. I will work with you to understand your strengths and weaknesses, which I view as your super-powers, as I believe that embracing them is your path to self-knowledge and personal resolution. I’m here to help, holding a space for you to talk through challenges, cultivate life skills and ultimately define your own path to greater happiness.

The quest for safe, nurturing, loving connection serves a fundamental need that many of us can spend our entire lives striving to meet. For too many, this need is being felt acutely now during these trying times. The challenge to connect often brings a range of intense emotions, including anxiety, anger, shame, sadness and disappointment. Such emotions run counter to what one is actively yearning for: the sense of being loved. I welcome individuals and couples from diverse backgrounds who want to decrease anxiety and depression, enhance personal wellbeing and build their capacity for loving relationships.
Amidst the chaos and pressure of living in the city, life can get challenging. Whether you are looking to work through existing challenges or feel compelled to move in a new direction, I’m here to tell you that you don’t have to do it alone. It might be tempting to just figure things out yourself so that you don't appear "weak" or burden other people especially if it has worked for you in the past but there’s another way! I help high achievers overcome perfectionism that have led to burnout, chronic fear, and feeling like they’ll never be or have enough.
Your feelings carry important information. They are an essential part of who you are. Because feelings can be difficult to face, they are sometimes avoided or pushed away. By exploring your difficulties and conflicts in the safety of my office, you will develop compassion toward yourself and others. While trained in cognitive behavioral therapy, motivational interviewing and dielectical behavior therapy, I also offer a deeper psychodynamic approach to psychotherapy in a safe and supportive environment.
My goal as a clinician is to help you feel free. In treatment, I will invite you to bring your whole self into the room, as you are. Together, we will work to identify the ways in which you feel stuck and shift unhealthy patterns that keep you from moving forward. Whether it be for an acute issue or chronic stress, for symptom management or general exploration, I will help you both accept your authentic self and also courageously change that which no longer serves you. Through this process, I believe you will begin to better know who you are, identify what you want, and live a richer, more meaningful life.

I view therapy as a partnership designed to disentangle life’s complexities on the pathway to wholeness.

As partners we will create adaptive coping strategies to bring clients into better alignment and fulfillment.
