It's back-to-school time! If your child struggled last year in remaining focused, demonstrated difficulty in peer relations, or you received phone calls regarding your child's behavior, get a head start this year by helping your child learn behavioral strategies and emotional control. Through a warm and accepting environment, I work with children, adolescents, and parents in helping them identify strengths, enhance skills, problem-solve, and structure home schedules to improve behaviors, interactions, and emotional balance. Together, we can work to help your child feel more stable and successful.

Although we cannot change what has happened to us, therapy can help us feel connected to life again. Extreme stress and suffering due to events out of our control (trauma) can lead to sensations of hopelessness, worry, unexpected memories, and sleep difficulties. I believe that connection to self, others and community is healing. I take an integrative, collaborative, mind/body approach to therapy which includes cognitive work, mindfulness, body awareness, EMDR, among other interventions. My background in Social Work and Public Health enables me to find interventions supported by scientific research to develop a path to wellness.

Because no two patients are alike, therapy should be tailored to each patient, rather than trying to treat everyone with the same theoretical approach. I believe that a therapist’s job is to guide the patient as they learn to change the behaviors and thinking styles that may have once been helpful, but are now getting in their way. Most importantly, I believe it is a therapist's job to teach their patients the skills necessary to eventually function independent of their therapist, allowing them to eventually leave therapy instead of being stuck with having weekly sessions for the rest of their lives!

Do you critique yourself often, replay conversations over and over, or think of all the "what ifs"? If so, you may benefit from therapy services. I work with children ages 6+, adolescents, and adults dealing with anxiety, depression, and life changes that are difficult to navigate. I help clients learn how to manage stress and develop insightful decision making skills. I also help clients develop healthy communication skills to increase assertiveness, confidence, and deeper connections with others. Therapy can also help with identifying negative self-talk and coping skills that may be doing more harm than good.

The way you experience our lives around us, is vastly shaped by our learned experiences in the past, especially as children and teenagers. Ideally, a child should learn how to navigate the world with confidence, feels secure and safe, skillfully assured of his/her own ability to problem solve. When someone suffers from anxiety, depression or personality disorders, he/she have been forced to develop different set of skills, mostly on his/her own, designed to defend the body against either perceived or real traumatic events. As a result, their view becomes rigid, distorted and generalized.

Sexuality and relationships are complex, and sex therapy is not just about sex. Great sex is more about your relationship with yourself and others than it is about technique. In sex therapy, we identify and work through the emotional issues that contribute to sexual problems by using cognitive therapy to change problematic thoughts and attitudes and incorporate behavioral techniques to change physical symptoms and behavior. I use a sexual health model and work with individuals and couples of any sexual orientation & lifestyle. Interventions include psychoeducation about sex, mindfulness exercises, and repairing relationship issues.
