Traumatic memory appears without warning. It stops you in your tracks, invades, and overwhelms. In a moment’s notice, your body and brain feel hijacked. No matter what you try and bury it under: work, food, relationships – it’s still there. You may dissociate or maybe you’re watching it happen across the room, in your child’s face. You never asked for this, but, then again, neither did they. Whether you are seeking support for yourself, your family, or the child in your life, I’m ready to roll up my sleeves and walk through this with you.

It may very well be that our deepest longing and need is for connection. To be heard and understood. To be known in places where many others are never allowed. To be more connected to the lost neglected parts of ourselves and those we care about. You have this opportunity in the safety of psychotherapy. It isn't always an easy road. Perhaps this sounds intimidating. Often it entails letting go of destructive habits or getting unstuck. We may need to look at old patterns and create new ones. There may be moments of laughing, crying, or facing hard truths.

With 3 decades of experience, I mediate spousal and child support, investments, properties and pension funds, along with establishing a careful and appropriate parenting plan. My firm prepares all of the legal documentation. Mediation is one tenth the cost of Litigation. The stress, anger, physical exhaustion and emotional pain of the court system takes an enormous toll on ones life. Research shows that a litigious divorce in the courts creates significantly more trauma in children.

I'm inspired to guide teens, and parents through the process of exploring what is on their hearts and minds. Through this exploration, I’ve seen teens create and maintain more fulfilling family interactions, healthier relationships with peers, and greater focus towards their goals. I help teens and family members improve self-understanding, self-compassion, effective communication, and connection. Sometimes, teens can benefit from learning more skills for sharing their perspectives. Often, parents also want to learn how to support their teens growth more effectively, or how to influence family communication.

I believe that nobody should be resigned to a lifetime of suffering from anxiety, unresolved trauma, feeling lost, stuck, disconnected from your partner, or like your emotions are out of control. This strife can keep you from living a fulfilling life. I have seen so many clients become tremendously empowered, less emotionally reactive, and confident in their decision-making once they have a greater understanding of themselves, their histories, and their strengths. I'm passionate about helping you gain clarity, as once these changes are taking place, my clients begin enjoying more satisfying relationships with loved ones.
