The sun goes down and you're desperate for sleep. Unfortunately, this is when your thoughts speed up. You're constantly thinking. You think about how much you think. Your mind replays the day's interactions with others, criticizing yourself, and reflecting on how people have hurt you. You're desperate for a break from the constant anxiety, but don't know how to find the peace that you want so badly.

I understand that life's transitions often come with the obvious changes in ones perspective, in ones relationships, and in ones lifestyle, but transitions also come with more hidden emotional changes. These usually surface as sleepless nights, fights with people you care about, mood instability, and a feeling of sadness or dissatisfaction with life. On your own, it is difficult to untangle the complex puzzle that underlies these ongoing issues and acknowledge these emotional changes. Together we can uncover the root of your emotional challenges using emotionally focused therapy in a compassionate and supportive environment.

Therapy is a gift of time and of a safe, supportive space for self-examination. Therapy provides awareness of the choice to shape our lives in meaningful ways. It's a collaborative process between client and therapist facilitating personal growth through exploration of the client's unique beliefs, feelings and behaviors. Pasts influence present realities in ways that are often outside of our awareness, and thus have a profound impact on how we view ourselves, connections to others, and place in the world. Losses and changes create disillusionment and helplessness if not processed to allow forward movement and renewed meaning.

We all face conflicts that at times become “too much.” When we feel overwhelmed there’s a natural tendency to want to restore balance in ourselves and our lives. Any conflict—in love, work, body image, physical symptoms—can lead to anxiety, shame and a sense of "going through the motions." Whether you’re dealing with current or long-standing difficulties, there are effective ways to understand and soften painful feelings. Life can be better when you open to new thinking, curb negativity and break repetitive cycles; you become kinder to yourself. You can find your own voice.

Our lives are constructed from many roles and stories. We, as human beings, are the teller of those tales. Is your narrative one, as Plato stated, flowing from "three sources: desire, emotion, and knowledge?" Is it rich in self-care, dignity, and compassion? Or, are the stories and thoughts you carry heartless, punitive, or corrosive?

Do you have a child who is being bullied? Are you wondering what you should do to help? Or, have you tried to help and feel that you're getting nowhere? If this is your situation, I understand how helpless you may feel. Bullying is a serious issue that can affect an entire family. I understand the impacts of bullying, and the effects that it can have on the victim. Those who are bullied can be impacted physically, emotionally, and relationally, which is why I believe that helping children heal from bullying is just as important as bully prevention.

The challenges of growing up in today's rapidly changing society are enormous. Children need to be equipped with skills for survival and growth that were never before imagined. I focus on teaching self-healing and self-control techniques that empower youth to develop the emotional skills necessary for a happy and successful life and realize their potential throughout their lifetime. Using the positive power of their imagination, children learn to reduce stress, deal effectively with anger and frustration, reduce stomachaches, headaches, and tics, cope with divorce and death, reduce parental and sibling conflicts, increase concentration, sleep peacefully, and more.

Unlike some therapists, I believe in setting goals and tracking progress. Why go to therapy without results? What's my specialty? Helping people free themselves from what holds them back.

I am a licensed clinical psychologist specializing in maternal mental health and trauma. I also work with anxiety, mood disorders, and relationship issues. I integrate different treatment modalities but am most aligned with IPT, an evidence-based treatment for depression and postpartum disorders. I believe the therapy relationship is the foundation for change and that change begins once you feel both understood and challenged. Finding that balance between insight and behavior change is the focus of my approach. I have tremendous respect for my clients' backgrounds and truly appreciate how we all adapt to our circumstances.

I view maladaptive behavioral patterns as a result of inadequate or dysfunctional life choices. I assist my clients in recognizing these patterns of behavior and encourage them to draw realistic and practical solutions to the things that are hindering growth and happiness through the choices they make in life. I work collaboratively with my clients using a "here and now" problem-solving technique and develop a treatment plan that uses psychotherapy, exercise, nutrition, and social support networks.

Often times, due to our unhealthy relationships, we face dysfunctional patterns and behaviors that affect our present relationships, mood and attitude. I help patients become aware of those patterns and work on unhealthy behaviors that may no longer be of need for us in our present adult life.

I believe there is a natural tendency toward growth, a desire to be more of ourselves and to enjoy the things we do. For many, that curiosity and vitality has been restricted or shut down. This may lead to feeling depressed, like nothing will change for you. Or anxious, it will only get worse. Or perhaps you sense things could be different and are frustrated, not knowing how to access that new way of being. Psychotherapy is a process through which you can understand how these feelings have come about and how to access your natural tendency toward wellness.
