Announcement icon I have always used "teletherapy", and continue to see some clients in my office, where I'm able to maintain social distancing.
Chaos and heartbreak in relationships bring people to me. They are angry and confused as they face both a hidden crisis and the loss of support or connection. Some do not have a choice – there are lawyers or social workers, and orders and mandates to address. Many are filled with shame and self-doubt, so we begin with what I know even before we meet – “your feelings are real” and “you are not losing it – you have been overwhelmed.” You are struggling to accept what you cannot change, but we may help you find the power to seize control of what you can. Whether “you” is an individual or a relationship that seems hopelessly broken.
Helping one person overcome shock and heal wounds can also lead to the resolution of old feelings and beliefs. Helping a family includes building new conflict resolution and communication skills. I’m a play therapist, get teens, and have special training in co-parenting, reunification, recovery, anger management, eating disorder, and collaborative divorce.
You may fear you waited too long, or you may be trying to also help someone who does not trust therapy. We cannot control all outcomes in life, but we can find ways to not just endure but learn from our struggles. And I have seen how just one person can change a family or relationship. It begins with a call. We can talk when you are ready.

“This is what I look and sound like when I'm in your phone or iPad. I also do this "direct eye contact" thing while doing tele-therapy.”
