I specialize in PTSD, complex trauma, family violence, sexual assault, grief/loss, anxiety, depression, substance use, anger management, self-esteem, suicidal ideations, and co-occurring disorders.
I believe that individuals are unique; each possessing their OWN worldview, which, ultimately, would make you the expert of your own life. Sometimes in life, we need assistance in our journey towards the realization and fulfillment of our own talents and potentials: self-actualization. I assist my clients by enabling them to move towards openness, developing a greater trust in themselves, building the willingness to process, and increase self-realization. All while providing a non-judgmental environment where your personal life experiences are heard, and you are valued as the unique human being that you are.

Life was meant to challenge us, but when those challenges become more than we can handle, who can we turn to for that extra support or even just a listening ear? Challenges can come in any form, whether it be in your marriage, from family conflict, or parenting struggles, I make it my goal to walk alongside you in whatever ways you need.

Life is a beautiful gift and can be magnificent, however, it can also be challenging and difficult to navigate. For some, it brings stress, depression, anxiety, or trauma, etc. Trying to balance unhealthy thoughts, feelings, or behaviors with family , work, and school can quickly feel overwhelming. Therapy provides a safe and nurturing environment where a client can increase self-awareness and receive validation. I work with individuals, couples, and families processing difficulties, learning effective coping skills, and helping them grow and heal to improve their emotional health and well-being.

I am a Ph.D. Clinical Psychologist in the Heights for 20+ years, trained in cognitive-behavioral & psycho-dynamic approaches. If a deeper understanding of a problem is desired, a psycho-dynamic approach focuses on understanding past family and relationships and patterns allowing for self-growth. In practical issues of changing behavior and/or learning a new approach, a cognitive behavioral approach assesses desired behavior changes, obstacles and strengths to obtain goals. In both approaches, I ask questions in a safe and cooperative style that allows for new perspectives and growth. This is especially helpful in couples therapy.

You have been struggling to feel like yourself for some time. Maybe you have been feeling so depressed it is hard to get out of bed. Or maybe your anxiety has made it hard for you to interact with others. Maybe you are fighting with your kids or your spouse all the time. Maybe you have started to feel so down on yourself that it is impossible to come up with anything positive in your life. If you don’t do something about these feelings you feel like you might explode or lose your mind. Maybe you feel like all of your friends and family will leave you if you don't 'get it together'.

Family Therapy

What do family therapists do?

A family therapist facilitates the process of understanding and improving how a family functions. The therapist will help family members develop empathy for one another. They’ll seek to understand existing patterns, misunderstandings, and conflicts that arise, in order to help the family arrive at a realistic, unified understanding and develop the coping skills they need to build stronger relationships.

How long does therapy for families take to work?

Therapy manifests differently in every family; a common time frame is 12 weekly sessions, but some families may see improvement after just a few weeks. Families should discuss their goals with the therapist at the beginning of the process and periodically revisit those goals to assess their progress together.

How can you encourage a family member to attend family therapy?

You can encourage family members to attend therapy by expressing with both love and concern the challenges you see and explaining how a therapist could help the family navigate those challenges together. An outside perspective can help everyone feel heard, get on the same page, and develop new skills. If family members are still hesitant, it may be helpful to emphasize that family therapy is short-term—it won’t last forever.

Is therapy for families effective?

Family therapy can significantly improve family dynamics and relationships. Research suggests that family therapy can help individuals understand their role in the family, communicate and solve problems together, reduce conflict and draw boundaries when necessary, and develop coping skills for stressors, major life changes, and mental or physical illnesses within the family.
