About Me

There's no manual for how to raise a teenager; even worse, there's no manual for how to BE a teenager! Despite their differences, all teens face the daunting task of becoming an adult; a pretty tall order if the caregiver relationships are strained. Parents of teens are typically in the difficult position of encouraging independence while ensuring safety; let's not forget the dreams we all have for our children that don't fit in with the identity they're creating. It can be a nerve wracking state for both teen and parent.

I'm here to help you in your life if you're an adolescent. I'm also here to help you if you're a parent that's struggling.

I am a Marriage and Family Therapist licensed in the state of New York. I have 11 years of experience working with individuals, families, couples and adolescents. I have a lot of experience with teens and young adults and a solid understanding of the challenges during this life stage.

I use the following modalities and approaches in my work: Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT), Dialectical Behaviour Therapy (DBT), Narrative Therapy, Trauma Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (TF-CBT), Attachment Based Psychotherapy, Somatic Psychotherapy methods, Solution Focused Therapy methods, Art Therapy methods, Gottman methods.

What's more important to know is that I will take great care to listen and understand what's going on. We will make a plan together to figure out what is most helpful.

I look forward to meeting you!
