When your child is behaving in a way that is unusual or concerning, it can feel extremely distressing as a parent. Young people often display behavioral concerns that do not necessarily match the underlying feeling or root cause, making things feel even more confusing. It is my goal to work collaboratively with you to understand your child fully and utilize inherent strengths within your relationship to attend to both of your needs."

"My approach to working with clients: Holistic Psychotherapy , Somatic Psychotherapy, Mindfulnes, specializing in Sexual Abuse, Trauma, Anxiety, Stress. Each client I see has their own story - the beliefs they hold about themselves, and the patterns (automatic ways of acting and thinking) that support those beliefs. Perhaps one was neglected as a child, and believes they need to do everything for themselves. Perhaps there was childhood abuse, and it's difficult to trust people, or to feel safe with intimacy. Perhaps one is stuck in their family role (for example: hero, lost child, mascot, scapegoat)."

"Some people pursue therapy because they love personal growth and self-exploration, but many of us come to therapy as a last resort or because our current experience is no longer tolerable. Even when we're suffering however, change can feel intimidating or unattainable. It can feel safer to remain in the discomfort of habitual patterns and experiences than to take a leap of faith into the unknown. It takes courage to pursue change, but if you are reading this, even if you are scared or doubtful, you have the courage required to heal and I am here to help."
