"I enjoy collaborating with families to help them move through difficult challenges with intention and compassion. I frequently work with neurodevelopmental and life-adjustment challenges. This includes executive functioning issues, like ADHD, moodiness and depression, or anxiety due to high academic pressure, life stress, or divorce. I also work extensively with technology-related issues: healthy-mind balance, boundary setting, as well as mindfulness practices for relaxation and expanding frustration tolerance."

The promise of psychotherapy is that it offers a path that illuminates the conscious and unconscious limiting beliefs we unknowingly come to identify with.

In this sense, I believe we are partners working to understand your motivations, fears, and deepest hopes so that you can feel a greater sense of freedom and empowerment in your life and in your future."
