I serve children, adolescents, adults, and families across diverse ethnic, cultural, and socioeconomic backgrounds.
Hello and welcome to your first step on your journey to healing and personal growth! As we move through life our unique experiences shape us into who we are. At times these experiences can leave wounds and unresolved issues that prevent growth. I work to help clients understand that this does not define who they are but is a piece of their individual life story. The healing process can be a lonely and intimidating journey, but together we can create meaningful opportunities for exploration and a future filled with hope.

I come to you with nearly a decade of experience where I have served children, adults and families.
It happened again. Another restless night. Another day trying to put on a happy face. Another day working hard to keep all the worry, negative feelings, stress and exhaustion buried inside. You are overwhelmed and can’t understand how you got here. Life is stressful. Constant worry, anxiousness, sadness, feelings of emptiness, irritability are all ways that our bodies can respond to the stress of life. Painful life experiences have a way of making us feel trapped. Maybe something painful has happened to you or your child recently or in the past and no matter how hard you have tried to work through it, nothing seems to be working.

My role is to create a nurturing environment for your child to feel safe to speak about the unspeakable.
Trauma is complex and affects the mind and body. When children and teens are exposed to a traumatic event or chronic trauma, their bodies’ endure toxic stress. Often children and teens are unable to communicate their complex emotions and thoughts due to the inability to comprehend their experience. Parents struggle knowing how to support their child and fear of causing further harm. Trauma heals through resolving unresolved memories and emotions. Addressing trauma is essential.

Child Therapists
Child psychologists in Phoenix, AZ provide mental health therapy to children and are experts in child development.

Every comprehensive review of therapy with children shows that all credible approaches, when performed by a competent mental health clinician, produce almost the same results. About half of all kids will get better. Of those that improve, 80% will show progress in a relatively short time, while the remaining 20% will need longer-term support.

The best child therapists in Phoenix build great relationships with the child and the parent. They also see the child's strengths and are open to hearing the child's possible solutions to the challenges the child faces. Finally, a good therapist appreciates the child's culture and is sensitive to the values of the child's community.
