I enjoy collaborating with families to help them move through difficult challenges with intention and compassion. I frequently work with neurodevelopmental and life-adjustment challenges. This includes executive functioning issues, like ADHD, moodiness and depression, or anxiety due to high academic pressure, life stress, or divorce. I also work extensively with technology-related issues: healthy-mind balance, boundary setting, as well as mindfulness practices for relaxation and expanding frustration tolerance.

Taking the first step toward your healing requires courage and I acknowledge the effort you have put forth. Perhaps you have reached a point where you need more awareness in order to deal with your present circumstances. I am a clinical psychologist with several years of experience working with adults, adolescents, and couples. I provide in-depth therapy where we both can begin to explore the underlying causes of your emotional symptoms. I view my role as a psychologist as one who guides you through the healing process. I believe that in order for this to occur, respect, safety, understanding and awareness must be present.

People are my passion! Is life for you or your child not going the way you'd like? In a supportive and confidential environment we can work together to identify the obstacles that are in the way of life being all that you want for yourself, your relationships, or your child. There are many approaches to psychotherapy, but research indicates that the patient-therapist relationship is a crucial factor. The beginning of therapy is creating that relationship and building trust. My focus is the present but I use the past that lives inside you to free you from its influence.

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?
