Being a woman at this time and place in history can feel like a lot. It can feel complicated, exhilarating, infuriating, exhausting and often times, overwhelming. At any point in the day, you may be a professional, a parent, a caregiver, spouse or partner, and of course, a human being. Balancing all of these different roles can take a toll on our energy, mood and outlook. If you’ve ever felt confused trying to navigate between these different parts of your self, you don’t have to do it alone. 

Maybe you’re interested in learning how to communicate better boundaries in order to take better care of yourself. Perhaps you are wanting to let go of old ways of coping that no longer serve your highest self. Or maybe, you know that being heard and seen in a completely safe and nonjudgmental environment will allow you to move through big feelings. Whatever your concerns, together we’ll explore where you’ve been, where you are, and where you want to go.

Adulthood comes with its own unique set of challenges. We all grow up and face decisions about work, life purpose and intimacy. We face losses. Many of us us have been hurt and have had to learn painful lessons. In our own ways, we move through the feelings and pick ourselves back up. It can seem that life is a process of recovery that never ends.

We inhabit a society full of often impossible cultural and gender expectations, and the pace at which life moves can make one’s head spin. Many of us feel constantly “on” and at the mercy of an ever-increasing merry-go-round of information and consumption. It is no wonder that so many of us feel overwhelmed. Some of us have met all of our material goals, yet feel a sense of emptiness and a deep yearning for a more meaningful life. For others of us, we continue to use coping mechanisms that may have been useful during childhood, but no longer serve us as adults, or even worse- are keeping us stuck.

Regardless of the specific issue that brings you to therapy, we can work together to summon the innate healing potential that is inside of you.

Even under the best of circumstances, the teenage years can be an exceptionally challenging time. This stage of life is rich with activity- brain development, hormones, peer and family relationships and the influences and pressures of society all come into play.

My experience working with teens dates back to 1999, when I first began teaching psychology to high school students. Since that time, I’ve worked with hundreds of teens and their families on a vast range of issues pertinent to this stage of life. I have extensive experience with special education, IEPs and 504 Plans, as well as collaborating with school psychologists and counselors to best meet the needs of teenage clients.

I am passionate about helping teens acknowledge their self-worth; developing their sense of self-esteem and building on their inherent strengths can yield profound changes in the quality of their lives, relationships and choices.
