I am a psychologist experienced in helping children, teens and adults. My experiences in the mental health field began in 1981 and include working with the seriously mentally ill, treating traumatized children, and working with the oppressed. These experiences have taught me the importance of maintaining compassion for others even when they are in extreme states or are easily wounded. Working with different cultures has taught me to respect the world view and values of others. My background helps me to understand struggles of all types with a greater depth and sensitivity. All problems, worries and concerns are significant and deserving of a serious approach.

Don’t be scared to start putting yourself and your needs first! Often times, we as individuals put everyone else’s needs ahead of our own, therefore neglecting ourselves, which ultimately is not fair to ourselves or our families. Scared to start therapy, because of societal judgment? Well, don’t be, as times have changed and stigma surrounding mental health is slowly ending. Therapy is needed now more than ever, especially given these challenging times. It is during these uncertain, unpredictable times that I am here to help you, your child, family or you and your partner. It is during these times that I help you see your worth.

Our world seems to be spinning out of control. Troubles we didn't know we had to worry about are now a daily reality. Working from home while homeschooling our sweet (but sometimes difficult) children can increase family stress and parenting guilt. Children may act out with increased defiance, distractibility, anger outburst, clinginess or sleep issues. Teens may withdraw, become moody, lose interest in hobbies or hygiene, or lack hope for the future ("It doesn't matter anyway," "I don't care").
