Let’s be honest. Marriage and parenthood are hard—the pressure cooker of expectations, new chapters and new challenges, and the fear that we might mess it up. You’ve looked at self-help books for support but it left you feeling defeated, embarrassed, and blaming yourself that you just can’t get it right. Nothing is worse than feeling like we aren’t a good enough partner or parent. Tired of stepping into the same well-worn patterns that leave you feeling defeated, stressed, and alone? What if someone could help you calm the storm (and make sense of it) to find your way back to yourself, your happiness, and the ones you love?

parent consultation, and individual therapy to address anxiety and related disorders.
It can be difficult under normal circumstances to know when to seek outside help for your child. If your child is experiencing distress or engaging in behaviors that are interfering with their ability to participate successfully in life, then you are on the right track in seeking additional support. I work in collaboration with children and the adults in their life to help target goal areas and provide practical support. As a licensed school psychologist I have a range of experience working with children and adolescents in support of their social, emotional, learning, and behavioral needs in private and public school settings.

Parent coaching is available, too.
My 15 years of working with students and parents have given me a deep and personal understanding of how an ADHD or executive dysfunction (EF) diagnosis affects all aspects of a student's life. As a Certified Coach, there is nothing more satisfying to me than to see a student's self-esteem rise as he or she develops skills to overcome tremendous obstacles such as difficulty focusing, procrastination, disorganization, or the inability to set priorities. I am especially proud of my students who, as their confidence grew, became comfortable being their own advocate -- and the pride they felt at achieving such a major accomplishment!

People often wonder "why can't I just *change*?" These cycles of behavior are driven by our life experiences and sense of ourself and others. Together, we will explore these ideas so that you can begin to create newer positive cycles of peace, calm, joy, contentment, intimacy, health, and fulfillment.
