About

I am a Licensed Mental Health Counselor who specializes in working with children and adolescents as well as their families. I have experience working with individuals and families around many issues including anxiety, depression, and trauma. I have worked in the outpatient mental health setting, community setting, and in the school setting assisting children and teens with academic and social challenges. I also work with many couples to help improve communication and build the foundation for their own family.
I offer children the opportunity to learn skills to manage their thoughts, emotions, and behaviors. I work closely with parents to assist with the parent child relationship and enhance the overall family dynamic. I teach couples to communicate more effectively with their partner and how to work together as a team through everyday challenges.
I feel it is important for every client to feel safe and comfortable in the therapy setting. I use creative interventions in order for clients to learn more practical solutions to everyday stressors. I also know the importance of keeping the family involved to be able to support the child or teen throughout life.
