I am a therapist and clinical psychologist who has practiced in Philadelphia PA and in the Bay area for over 10 years. You might also call me a bridge builder, family connector, restorer of hope, empowerer of parents, adoption ally.
I help women who long to feel more connected with themselves, but who are buried under unrealistic expectations of themselves as women and/or mothers.
I help parents of neurodiverse children feel more effective in their roles so that they can deepen their compassion and connections with their child/children despite the inevitable challenges.
I know from my own path as a parent and from years of working with diverse families of various constellations and situations, that children are more resilient, competent, and at their best academically and emotionally when their parents feel supported, effective, empowered and compassionate.
If you are a woman or parent who wants to overcome old wounds, improve your constant sense of overwhelm, or replace ingrained unrealistic expectations, I hope you will schedule a free consultation today.
