"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."

"I help perfectionists who are always second guessing their self-worth, overworking out of fear what they did is not enough, playing small from fear of taking risks and failing, and living below their potential. This creates a cloud of anxiety, stress, and overwhelm that burns you out and drains your motivation and drive to excel, leaving you feeling stuck. I help you learn how to overcome those mindset blocks and find a healthy balance between always raising the bar and finally enjoying the fruits of your labor. Working with me clients learn how to find lasting joy, not just fleeting happiness, and how to reach their full potential."

In the midst of dealing with the overwhelm of life, our humanity is needing connection, compassion and acceptance. In the therapeutic space, I offer not only a "witnessing" of your humanity, but also a non judgmental look into how you came to be, so that feelings can be felt and not shut out. By inviting these "negative feelings" in, I allow people to be seen right where they are at. This compassionate approach rebuilds the relationship with yourself and gets to the root of change.
