About My Clients

My work is with individuals and families. ​​Being a young adult can be an exciting yet stressful time. Are you feeling troubled by school, transition, relationships, family and/or friends? Let's look at your concerns together through different lenses and find new ways for you to do and feel better. Does your child have difficulty getting to school or are they defiant? Does your child seem depressed or anxious? Let's work to resolve these issues so your child and family can feel grounded again.

My Background and Approach

I had a very successful career in banking/finance but discovered that my true calling was in helping others so I returned to graduate school at NYU and changed my career altogether. Over the last decade, I've helped so many families and individuals to resolve problems that they never thought were possible. Some of my successes include seeing an child return to school after one year of truancy, reconnecting family members and eliminating harmful conflict, and assisting a college student with depression to manage symptoms to allow for focused academic performance. My approach to working with you is from an empathic, authentic and balanced perspective without any judgment. Balance is what maintains us but the imbalance can propel us. Fully understanding you, where you are now and where you'd like to be in the near and distant future, are important parts of our work together. We will explore new territory to lead you to new pathways for resolution.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I believe that change is possible for everyone. Learning how to navigate through life events and change is an evolving process and choosing who to confide in is an essential part of this. I can be that person to help guide you through your journey towards that change. We all experience different phases of life, transitions, the need to adjust, heal or connect, and along this continuum, we encounter expected and unexpected events. I believe that you have life's answers within you and it's your readiness and willingness to explore these new areas that will help uncover the resolutions that you're looking for.
