My Approach to Helping
“Time is an illusion,” said Einstein. You know this all too well as you need 27 hours to take care of your family that is sick, disabled or has special needs, work and personal obligations. Your so overwhelmed that you have given up most, if not all, of yourself and now on you're on autopilot to deal with daily life. You're numb, angry, tired. You have a hard time seeing the good in the choices you were forced to make. Fortunately, there are ways to regain control over your life and I can help assist you.
I specialize in working with overwhelmed, exhausted and numb family caregivers. We will work on identifying, anticipating and managing emotions while developing coping skills. The sacrifices that you have to make to ensure that you family member is taken care of is both universal and unique to you.
You can find time for yourself in your hectic life of competing obligations. It can be in the form of therapy with me since our time is really your time. It is time to take care of yourself. I can be reached through phone, text or my website and provide a free 30 minute consultation.

Specific Issue(s) I'm Skilled at Helping With
Specialization: Life Transition
Life transitions take shape in many ways, from losing jobs to preparing for the eventual passing away
of a loved one. I specialize in working with family members that are in the middle of a life transition, often in the form of a caregiving positions (ie: parent of a child with special needs, adult child of a parent with Dementia, a partner of someone who had a stroke) and are experiencing anxiety, depression and burnout. I help you explore your expectations of yourself, your family members and other stressers while developing new expectations and practicing coping and communication skills.
Judaism is an amazing religion and culture but it can cause turmoil within a person. It can deeply influence our family, upbringing and daily lives, which can cause spoken and unspoken expectations and conflicts. Our work together can define those expectations and conflicts you are experiencing and help alleviate your anxiety and depression. Our work may involve creating boundaries and practicing communication skills.
My Role as a Therapist
I provide you with a safe, nonjudgemental, conversational atmosphere for you to work through your
frustrations and sadness.We will use your strengths to regain a new sense of self while growing skills like defining and upholding personal boundaries, communication skills and time management. I appreciate your feedback on sessions and will attempt to utilize it to make future ones better.
