I work with adults and adolescents to resolve a broad array of issues including trauma, grief, depression, anxiety, life transitions and perinatal/postpartum.
Whether you are coming in to address childhood issues, a new stage of life you are struggling to adjust to, relationship concerns, low self esteem, or numerous other amazing reasons to start therapy- I create a personalized treatment plan for you. I use talk therapy, body and mindfulness work, EMDR, Safe and Sound Protocol, trauma informed therapies and more. Therapy should never be one size fits all.
I am LGBTQIA affirmative and I am committed to the work of healing racial trauma.
Family therapy can help with communication and reduce conflicts, leading to a more harmonious environment. We all know, parenting is NOT easy, and we all need some support.
Therapy can help you face difficult moments in parenting, recognize intergenerational traumas and create a more conscious parenting style.
I offer assistance to parents navigating IEP's and supportive therapies. Parenting a child with special needs, or sensory challenges, or a diagnosis, or even a Highly Sensitive child, comes with its own stressors and the need of knowledge and coping tools. You are not alone.
I also offer CoParenting Therapy, which can be a powerful way to put your children first and create a healthy, safe coparenting plan
I am trained in couples modalities such as Gottman, Emotionally Focused and Psychodynamic, among others.
Most importantly, therapy should be a safe space where you can explore blocks, triggers and negative patterns. Relationships get hard when people get stuck in anger, resentment, or apathy. We will work together so you can then understand your needs and deeper emotions.
EMDR and SSP
I am trained in Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) and use it both as a stand alone therapy, or incorporated into a longer, eclectic therapy plan. EMDR involves talking and bilateral stimulation. The aim is to reduce distress and negative beliefs associated with past overwhelming or traumatic experiences that are having a significant impact on mental health.
I also offer Safe and Sound Protocol,
a therapeutic tool designed to reset the nervous system and return it to safety. SSP features specially filtered music that stimulates the vagus nerve.
NICU/ Special Needs Parenting
Having a baby in the NICU is a whole other world of parenting. It can be traumatizing and scary, and not at all what you expected. I support you with a deep understanding - we work on attachment, processing birth trauma, and finding tips and tools to use while your baby is hospitalized. Preemie babies can come with issues and concerns many of us are not prepared for. Therapy is the place to process and heal.
Perinatal, Fertility and Birth Trauma
At least 1 in 5 women are affected by Perinatal Mood and Anxiety Disorders. And men are not immune either.
I am trained in Perinatal Mood and Anxiety Disorders, as well as EMDR for Perinatal Clients.
I have knowledge of the fertility journey and its physical, emotional, and financial challenges. Whether you are undergoing treatments, navigating a loss or have suffered birth trauma, therapy can be a vital tool.
