**I am not accepting new clients until Fall 2020. Please email for updates!** Is your child or teen struggling with intense worry, overthinking, uncomfortable emotions, stress, or feeling under pressure? I help children, teens, and young adults learn how to manage anxiety, depression, and improve their self-esteem/self-compassion. It can be tough navigating everything that comes with growing up as a child/teen: school stress, social media, friends, family, sports/extracurriculars, gaming...it's understandable why they would feel so overwhelmed! I help kids and families work together to develop coping skills to manage these feelings.

I specialize in working with kids to manage their anxiety and am currently completing requirements to become a Certified Clinical Anxiety Treatment Professional - Child & Adolescent (CCATP-CA). I have a Master's in Sport Psychology, and a Master's in Counseling. I love including creative/play techniques during sessions to keep children engaged and active!

I believe there's no "one-size-fits-all" approach to therapy sessions, and I understand that finding a therapist who is the right fit is so important. Good news! You're not alone in this journey, and I am hopeful that I can help you and your child through this challenging time. Together we will create positive and lasting changes!
