I specialize in working with adults, couples and adolescents. I work mainly with women issues, postpartum, infertility, eating disorders, body image and mainly relationship issues. Relationship with yourself, your spouse or significant others, your children, your family, co-workers, your body, your mind, your negative self thoughts etc. I will provide you with encouragement, support and hope in a compassionate and trusting environment. Together, we can improve your coping skills, find your inner strength and give you the tools to mend your relationship, with whatever it is or whom it is. You have the power to change your life and I know I can help.

Couples/relationship issues: infidelity, communication, connecting, healing from resentments. Depression and anxiety, eating disorders/body image, with a special interest in infertility/pcos. Adolescents: Depression and anxiety with a special interest in self esteem, eating disorders and body image. I also specialize with working with couples and families in crisis.
