Hi and welcome! Therapy is a powerful and life changing force and the therapist client fit is the most important element in making therapy worthwhile and effective. Most clients who seek therapy with me are working through relationship issues (either old wounds from family of origin or current relationship issues), loneliness, parenting adjustments or struggles, loss, divorce or separation, connection challenges or relationship betrayal.

I specialize in assessment to understand why a child is struggling and parent coaching to help manage behaviors.
Has your child been overly anxious since the onset of the COVID-19 crisis? Is your child experiencing more tantrums or having trouble focusing? Are you concerned your child will be behind after being out of school for months? Children and families are trying to adjust to significant changes in school, home, work, and social lives. As parents and caretakers, we are struggling to balance these very typical reactions to stress with how to move forward in the “new normal” of uncertain times. I can work with your family to determine why your child or adolescent is having difficulty and what we can do to help.

Being a parent is hard and you don’t have to do it alone! The journey of pregnancy through motherhood can be joyous, overwhelming, fun and draining; it is emotionally and physically exhausting and everyone needs help or support at times. Are you experiencing infertility, pregnancy loss or complications, a NICU stay, or postpartum mood and anxiety disorders? Focusing on your own needs and healing for a short time each week can help improve your ability to care for yourself, your children and family.

My specialty areas with younger children include: parent coaching and psycho education, behavioral issues, bullying/self-esteem, peer conflict, social skills and ADHD and separation anxiety.
It is my mission to team up with parents, children and young adults to improve confidence, positivity and emotional regulation. As children, we are taught math, science and reading, but not how to feel or to express our feelings. This can come out as aggression or anxiety or with-drawl. It is my goal to help my clients target problem behaviors, process past events, and learn new skills while providing guidance and support each step of the way.

Deciding to speak to a therapist is a step in the direction of health - mental, emotional, and sometimes physical. My clients usually come to me after they have tried all they can think of - I feel honored to be their next step and honor the steps they've already taken. Whether a client's concerns pertain to parenting or becoming a parent , perinatal mental health, life transitions, ADHD, or general mental health, I enjoy working together with my clients to determine the best next steps for them.

I am also trained in DBT, CBT, Play Therapy and see children ages 8+, as well as providing ADHD assessment, parent coaching, and meditation training.
Being curious about what makes us feel and act the way we do brings authenticity, creativity, and choices into our lives. Our self-concept and beliefs about the world are often formed in childhood and learned in our primary relationships. Unconsciously, these early experiences guide many of the decisions in our lives. I am passionate about exploring with you, the patterns that may leave you feeling confused, frustrated, or unable to move forward. Together, we will create space to cultivate conscious and caring responses to the inevitable challenging events of life.

I'm here to support the first-time parent with unexpected emotions, as they re-form their identity; for the child that suddenly has two families instead of one; for the parents taking their baby home from the NICU, facing fear and grieving what might have been; for the person who has decided they're ready to heal old wounds, and embrace all that life has for them. You can learn to navigate depression and anxiety, and become more present for your family. You can strengthen your relationships with your children and partner, even when life throws you a curveball. No matter your past or current struggles, you deserve an abundant life.

I offer coaching, parent -coaching, counseling & EMDR for 1) trauma, 2) attachment work, 3) anxiety, & 4) identifying & replacing limiting beliefs with empowered beliefs that create lasting change.
Counseling was once seen as something having to do with weakness. Now it used widely and routinely for gaining strength, new skills, making meaning out of one's life and living one's purpose. Living & loving fully and leading a life that matters has everything to do with finding the right mentors along the way for support and guidance in transforming vulnerability into strength. I help mamas, papas and adults who want proven skills to help themselves &/or their child succeed. And when families & individual adults experience ongoing stress, loss or trauma, having proven skills & tools is even more important--Help is here.

Do you yearn for closer, more connected relationships? Are you a parent managing overwhelm? Does your partner’s reactivity bring out the worst in you? An accepting, compassionate, and calm presence is one of the biggest gifts we can give ourselves and our loved ones. Yet, today’s stressors make that increasingly hard to do! Imagine what it would feel like to be living your best life. To move through hardships instead of away from them. To grow rather than shrink. Imagine feeling a deep love and connection for yourself and for others. How might your life unfold differently?
