"My practice focuses on supporting professionals working in international development, international affairs and public affairs, particularly on improving parenting skills. I use both supportive and insight-oriented talk therapy to help professionals/parents identify areas of difficulty/sensitivity with children/adolescents as well as their other caregivers, strategize what can be changed, and then provide ongoing support and evaluation as parents try to adjust their parenting style. When possible I try to make arrangements for behavioral observation of children/adolescents, and if indicated conduct formal psychological testing. "

"Please note that all sessions are via tele-medicine. I believe that clients seeking counseling services desire tools for living a better life, and I strive to provide those tools. I do not push change on clients, but rather helps them articulate how they want their lives to be, and then collaboratively set out to put the foundation in place to create that life. I feel that clients gain the most from the counseling experience when they feel supported, encouraged, and understood by their therapist. This process works best in a warm, empathetic, and non-judgmental space, which I provide."

You yearn to feel like yourself again, but you also feel guilty that it could mean letting go of your loved one somehow.
