Whether you're grieving, a professional caregiver, caring for young or elderly kin, or finding a hard time caring for yourself.
When was the last time you took care of you? As a person that’s taking care of everyone else and the endless task list, you don’t remember the last time you watered your own garden (or where the heck the watering can even is). And even though you are really doing an amazing job taking care of everyone around you, you’re exhausted, burnt out, and wondering when this drought is going to stop. Oh, and by the way, you ARE allowed to fill your own water tank…without feeling guilty and while still caregiving or helping others heal around you. What if you could find a little peace in your day as you do all the 879 things on your list?

As part of my practice, I offer comprehensive neuropsychological evaluations for people with neurological conditions including Alzheimer's Disease, MS, and other forms of dementia.
Many people ask themselves, "Is it all in my head? Do I need help?" Parents often ask, "Is there something wrong with my child, or am I just worrying too much?" I specialize in the evaluation and treatment, as well as comprehensive psychological testing, of children, adolescents, and adults experiencing behavioral, emotional and developmental challenges. As a psychologist in private practice, I work with my clients, be they adults or children and their parents, to identify areas of concern, develop specific goals and plans to address them, and to enhance the strengths and resources families already possess to improve relationships, reduce stress, and increase success.

Examining life is like inspecting a car, each part — the engine, wheels, and brakes, are components interacting to ensure smooth operation. Changes in one part affect the entire driving experience, much like shifts and challenges in specific aspects of our lives impact our overall functioning. As a holistic-based therapist with a focus on a systems theory lens, I approach therapy by considering the entirety of the individual. Acknowledging the interconnectedness of mental, emotional, physical, and spiritual well-being, we will delve into multiple factors that can profoundly influence your overall health.

How does the "talking cure" help? It might have even been called the "listening cure." Having a helpful and supportive ear is something many people find they need at various transition points in their lives. Having a safe place to talk, in a warm and supportive environment, is crucial. The tool of our work is the relationship and, as research has shown, is the most important predictor of success in psychotherapy. I enjoy working with my patients as they seek to find their way to a richer and more fulfilling life.
