I believe that our lives are built on relationships. Be it between parent and child, partner and partner, supervisor and employee, or peer and peer, relationships can be healing and rewarding, but they can also be painful and difficult. We all know the stress and heartache that can come from a relationship in distress and we all know that desperate, painful feeling of wanting relief. Helping people find their way through these difficulties and back to each other is one of the most rewarding and exciting things I do. I specialize in helping families connect and thrive.

Are you feeling anxious, irritable, or foggy more and more these days? Do you resent your partner or snap at them over little things? The changes that have come with growing a family feel overwhelming, but it’s hard to admit that you aren’t doing ok. Everyone says this is the best time of your life, but you barely recognize yourself. Your body and mind are exhausted, and you feel like you don’t know where to begin. You want to regain balance, focus, and a sense of who you are now beyond being a parent or trying to become a parent. Let me help you find your way back to you.

Hello there. I'm glad you're here, but it can also be a difficult space to be in - reaching out when you need help. I wonder what's going on for you. Maybe you're so exhausted from running into the same issues over and over again with friends and family and you feel lonely and confused. Or maybe you're just so tired of feeling like you don't measure up. Maybe it doesn't even feel like you know who you are anymore. My hope is to join you in exploring your past and present so you can understand the narrative of your life, which allows you to create the future you desire - a life of self compassion and peace.

In other words, I help people understand just how they have gotten to their current circumstances.

The process of exploring your inner life (the unresolved traumas, as well as the resiliency that has helped you survive) creates opportunities for you to heal. I am trained in EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing). As Viktor Frankl wrote, "When we are no longer able to change a situation, we are challenged to change ourselves." We can rewire our brains and reprocess our past traumas using EMDR. I am currently providing EMDR via Zoom. Yes, this is possible, and it works.

Our team at Teen Translation, Inc., is expert on adolescent development, using treatment modalities that align with the teen’s developmental tasks. We love to “get preventative” by 1) joining with the adolescent to create a healthy identity and narrative, 2) connecting the teen to the family, drawing upon their greatest resource - you!, and 3) empowering the family to put the bumpers around adolescent exploration, while creating space for the teen to fall down, get back up, and discover their own capability and resiliency. There are a few factors, which I call the “fab five,” that contribute to adolescent behavior:

Feeling stressed and overwhelmed? Not good enough, lost, or insecure? Are you or your loved ones repeating behaviors, relationships, or situations, and wishing you could break the cycle? Maybe little things feel more frustrating or tiring than usual. Sometimes, we aren't sure what causes our distress, but we can sense we're not reaching our potential for health, happiness, or success. And even when we know the cause, change can still feel impossible. That's where I come in. My job is not to judge you--it's to listen, help you understand the root causes of your difficulties, and teach you practical tools to help change your life.
