I provide a safe and empathic place in which you can examine the issues that need attention so that you better understand them, yourself, and can make changes that will help you lead a more rewarding life. I realize that seeking therapy can feel daunting--but it is worth the effort. Finding a therapist who feels right for you is the most important first step. To make the process easier I offer a free initial phone consultation to help you decide if we would work well together before moving forward.

Healthy relationships in which we feel connected and understood are one of the most important determinants of happiness, but navigating and maintaining these types of relationships can be challenging. From a collaborative and strength-based approach, I work with individuals, couples and families to enrich and deepen their connections to those who matter most. Utilizing my extensive post-graduate training at the Ackerman Institute for the Family, I work from a relational approach to strengthen and clarify relationships between couples and family members. I focus on resolving issues related to breakdowns in communication and life transitions including marriage, separation/divorce, illness, loss, pregnancy and the birth of a new child. I believe that through therapy, ruptures can be repaired, and couples and families can navigate tumultuous times with greater ease and grace, leading to greater intimacy and connection.
With compassion and empathy, I practice with the philosophy that people make positive change when they feel empowered, hopeful, and understood by the people closest to them. I look forward to working with you, and helping you find greater meaning and richness in your relationships.

I am an interactive psychotherapist with advanced experience in Couples Therapy, Cognitive Therapy and Modern Psychodynamic Therapy. I help individuals and couples suffering from symptoms of depression, anxiety or problems in their relationships. Often clients come to me feeling stuck or confused about relationships and careers that keep them from engaging more fully in life. I help them to understand the problems, remove the obstacles, and live a life more in tune with their true nature. Having grown up in a family of therapists and worked through many of my own similar issues, I know personally and professionally the vast rewards of good therapy.
I work eclectically on relieving symptoms of depression and anxiety while assisting my clients in clearly understanding their own way of thinking, feeling, and behaving. At times I will use a more cognitive approach and other times a more psychodynamic approach. The orientation depends upon the client's specific needs.
I offer a safe, warm, friendly environment where we can communicate openly with one another and work on the issues at hand; it is a healthy and informative process where clients find that not only the relationship with themselves improve, but also those with others.

Your sense of self is derived from your day to day events, history, culture, education, and your parents. This is done through the activation of your biological sensory system. Once data is taken in through your senses and processed by your mind, your thoughts produce an array of emotions which eventuate your experience and ultimately produce your truth about life. If you are not aware of your belief system, your thoughts and emotions will wear you down like an app depleting the battery life of your smartphone when gone unchecked.

Hence, with a background in systems theory, I discovered the power to change the patterns of our story line. The gift of presence and the freedom to choose is what I desire to give to you. I do this by using your feelings as an important process towards self-awareness because feelings become the clue to your thoughts, behaviors, and belief systems.

I do not instruct you with an alternate interpretation of feelings; rather, I ask process questions to increase your higher thinking skills. For instance, I will ask you how you observe your pain rather than how you feel or think about your pain. My goal is always the same regardless of symptom, religion, culture or gender.

As a systems therapist this is liberating because it allows me to meet you where you are at. I listen, ask process questions, validate your experience, and provide compassionate care so you can pass the barriers that hold you back from trusting yourself.

People seeking therapy are often feeling frightened, alone and in great emotional turmoil and pain.
It is my priority to be present with sensitivity, empathy, and respect for who you are.
I use a synthesis of humanistic psychotherapies, body/mind/spirit interrelation, and grounding in classical theories. I will work with you as a whole person, not a diagnosis.
The right fit with a therapist is crucial to success of the therapy. Please come in for a free consultation.

Did you promise yourself that you’d never behave or react the way your own parents did once you had children?
Do you often regret the way you handled a parenting situation, then wonder: Why wasn’t I able to stop myself from doing that?
Are you wondering how to calm the chaos in your home and create more connection?
You desire and deserve a connected relationship with your child and peace in your home - but your emotions get the best of you, and stop you from responding from a place of calm understanding. It’s even harder when you’re trying to raise your child in a different way than you were raised - because all of those old feelings are still with you, and keep springing up on you when you get stressed out.
I’m a clinical psychologist, and I specialize in working therapeutically with parents who actively want to strengthen the emotional bond with their infants, toddlers, school-aged children/tweens, adolescents or adult children. The parents I see want to figure out what's getting in the way of being the conscious, peaceful and positive parents they really want to be. With a strong focus on mindfulness and self-compassion, I’ll help you gain control of your emotions and reactions in the heat of conflicts with your children, so that you can respond with unconditional acceptance.
If you’re feeling emotionally overwhelmed when your child is resistant or melting down, or like something is ‘off’ in your parent-child relationship, it's time to get some support in unpacking your triggers that show up when your child is behaving in ways you wish they wouldn’t.

All you need to bring to therapy is an open mind and a willingness to explore. I am a very interactive therapist; I give a lot of feedback and guidance. In my work with individuals, I help people see how they developed the coping skills and defense mechanisms they did, and how to begin recognizing them in a less judgmental way. I also teach couples new communication skills: how to rebuild trust and safety after a breach, how to mirror one another, ways to validate and empathize. We work on breaking bad patterns and create healthier ones using positivity and appreciations.

It's so rewarding to help couples and families heal old and current wounds, and to see my clients use therapy as a way to soar to new emotional freedoms. Please don't be in pain anymore: contact me so we can set goals together, develop healthier ways of coping, and watch you blossom.
