This work is powerful for couples and individuals dealing with high stress, high conflict, infidelity, parenting , infertility, loss and all the emotional symptoms that come from these experiences such as depression, anxiety and loss of self.
My approach is to view problems or issues from a systemic perspective. That means I am curious about our key relationships past and present, the roles we play, the rules we follow, and where our identity and value systems come from. My passion is to make sense of the ways our internal experiences (relationship with self) and our external experiences (relationships with others) collide and inform one another. I strive to help people develop wholeness of self through unpacking anything that is keeping them stuck.

I have experience working with individuals and couples on issues such as: depression, anxiety, shame, personality disorders, severe mental illness, trauma, conflict resolution, sexuality, gender identity, military veteran issues, aging, parenting , marital difficulties, adjustment problems, feeling out of control, being overwhelmed, and feeling lost.
We are bombarded daily with messages of stigma, judgments, injustices, -isms, and fear. Yet, wellness is possible. I believe wellness and personal growth are best pursued within a trusting, judgment-free, safe, open, empathic, and honest therapy relationship. To build those relationships, I'm fully committed to exploring and understanding each client's perspective, background, culture, values, lifestyle, and choices. In our work together, I hope to help my clients discover their strengths and learn the skills necessary to develop lives they want to live.

"Accepting new clients". From painful traumas, grief and loss, relationships issues, parenting challenges, marriage disconnection, to anxiety and depression, we all experience challenges at some point in life. However, growing and becoming the best version of ourselves requires work and attention as it may not come naturally. Every person is different. Placing judgment aside and holistically seeing everyone for who they are allows me to create a safe space for growth, where clients feel supported while developing their own unique self and a stronger sense of belonging within themselves and among others.

"I've learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel." -Maya Angelou.

Most people seek therapy because they are looking for relief from a specific problem or from a more general sense of not feeling “right”. You may see yourself as damaged or incomplete, but I see you as having an unlimited amount of potential. Choosing a therapist involves finding someone you feel will be most helpful to you. I believe that the relationship between therapist and client is truly unique. I help my clients by providing empathy and support throughout the session. I specialize in helping clients who feel overwhelmed and stressed out, gain a different outlook on life.

My clients want to live richer, more emotionally balanced lives and have more fulfilling relationships. They are curious about their lives: "Is this all there is?" or "How did I get into this mess?" My clients soon realize that "going it alone in silence" is depressing and not hopeful. They see me as a trusted friend who cares about them. I see people just like you--healing from loss and grief due to the endings of relationships. I counsel parents who have relationship issues with their adult children. I help persons when their religion/spirituality seems to have ended. I help couples repair and rekindle their relationship.

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.
