Are you struggling in your relationship, separation, divorce, or with a co- parent ? Has the forced proximity from COVID-19 or some other major life event negatively impacted your relationships? Are you concerned about how the strain involved might be affecting your children? Such situations are all too common, and many otherwise effective and more-than-competent people are left wondering if they're doing everything possible, or even just enough, to meet the needs of everyone in their family. Being a parent is difficult for everyone, and problems in relationships between parents and loved ones make it even harder.

parent consultation, and individual therapy to address anxiety and related disorders.
It can be difficult under normal circumstances to know when to seek outside help for your child. If your child is experiencing distress or engaging in behaviors that are interfering with their ability to participate successfully in life, then you are on the right track in seeking additional support. I work in collaboration with children and the adults in their life to help target goal areas and provide practical support. As a licensed school psychologist I have a range of experience working with children and adolescents in support of their social, emotional, learning, and behavioral needs in private and public school settings.

With my experience, I have become a specialist in several different areas: Anxiety; Parent Guidance; Life Transitions; Difficulty with Medical Diagnoses; Gender Dysphoria/Questioning, LGBTQ, and Eating Disorders.
What do YOU need? This is the deceptively simple question which I ask my clients almost every session. What would change if you asked yourself that simple question more often? This is an example of some of the foundational work which I'll infuse into our sessions. I LOVE what I do and am so honored to be a part of your life! My goal as your therapist is to encourage, support, empower, and listen. I view therapy as a true partnership where you're not alone while you navigate the 'messy middle' of life in these uncertain times. I work solely virtually after getting positive feedback from busy clients who appreciate this convenience.

I am a parent myself, and combined with my professional experience, you can be assured I will listen to your specific issues with a seasoned and empathetic ear.
I am here to help children, teens and their parents develop well-being during these very stressful times. Raising children is hard; raising children who have ADHD, relationship difficulties, anxiety, learning issues, and/or depression is even harder. Parents need help and so do their kids. Therapy and coaching offer a venue to express feelings, practice new skills, and establish new ways of connecting with one another. I have also traveled extensively and completed my doctoral research on acculturation, academic stress, and burnout and have a unique interest and skill set in serving families returning to the US from abroad.

I am an expert on issues related to parenting , ADHD, reconnecting adolescents to their parents, mid-life transitions, grief and loss and using mindfulness and creativity to calm down, focus and be more present in your life.
My goal is to help you get unstuck. You will begin to feel better just by taking the first step. Serious problems often need someone to both listen and offer alternative ways for thinking in order to make changes that last. Doing nothing and just hoping and wishing that things will get better doesn't work. I will prompt you and support you in taking concrete steps. I talk straight, listen closely and respectfully ask good questions. Starting with our first session, you will begin to figure out a new way to go. Let's talk soon about beginning.

I offer concrete, effective strategies to parents, children, & adolescents to address a wide range of emotional, behavioral, and developmental concerns.
