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.

My favorite clients to work with are children and teens ages 5 to 18 as well as young adults ages 19 - 35. I have an innate ability to connect and communicate with children and teens while at the same time being able to form a relationship with their parents to assist in the work they are doing in therapy. I work to create a safe, non-judgmental space that allows clients to be themselves. As a therapist, I show up authentically and establish a real connection using empathy, creativity, and humor.

Life is too complicated not to need some help and support from time to time. I believe it takes a certain amount of bravery to recognize when we need help, and even more to seek it out. In order to provide the best possible support specific to you and your situation, I am most interested in getting to know you, your goals, and your expectations for therapy. I have a relaxed approach and have created a warm environment in which you can feel comfortable right away.

In therapy, we look to grow, and we seek help with real-life problems. I enjoy working with both this “growth” therapy as well as with those seeking relief. I enjoy working with clients who struggle with unhappiness, anxiety, addiction, or loneliness. I work with new parents who struggle with the challenge of having a child and/or being working parents. I have strong commitment to serving women who are finding their voice, to the LBGT community and minorities. I am also well versed with clients who are struggling with grief and loss. I enjoy creating a safe place to talk for women, those who feel excluded, and to heal from trauma.

Life will sometimes nudge and then shout at us when we need to pause and look within ourselves. It often comes at times when we feel sad, hurt, anxious, or depressed. It may be at times when relationship struggles, self-doubt, or loss arise. Whether you are returning to therapy or preparing to enter it for the first time, with this step change is already underway. As I see it, the therapy process is a journey to resolve painful experiences, gain insight, and develop strengths and new abilities, all which help to navigate life’s challenges. Healing is possible as well as clarity on how to move forward.

I take pride as a psychologist in the area of personal growth when dealing with life's challenges. This involves meeting your needs and starting where you are now and going from there. I work collaboratively in order for you to get to a 'better' place. I have accumulated a wealth of experience helping others combat challenges of not being able to have children by traditional means. I worked with patients exploring 'good' solutions to this heart-rending process. My goal involves helping individuals deal with the normal and not so normal life challenges of depression, self-esteem, anxiety, relationships, children, parents, and more.

It's difficult to be in this world. You want to be considerate and kind; you also want to fulfill your potential. Were you were raised with a lot of "shoulds"? Were you told to control or ignore your feelings? Are there issues with anger? Yours or anger from loved ones? Anger can lead to feelings of shame. But finding the feelings beneath the anger, you can accept and love yourself. And that can change your life.
