As a parent of three children , one of whom is on the Autism Spectrum, I understand how difficult parenting can be and the toll it can take on relationships. I know that in spite of our best intentions, there are times we need support and guidance.

I use a child 's natural language of play in therapy.
I frequently work with individuals and families with a wide variety of challenges. Some clients are simply looking to find a place that they can take a deep breath and be in a place to address things that they want to work on. While others have severe symptoms or complex issues that are frightening and overwhelming where they need help sorting out thoughts and feelings while learning how to manage and navigate the challenges. Each client is unique and so are their experiences so my goal is to tailor treatment to best benefit my clients.

We have plenty of art supplies and games for children (or any age) to use in exploring themselves and their emotions in a contained, safe, and friendly environment.
I believe anyone can benefit from therapy. Seeing a therapist means you were willing to ask for help in dealing with the overwhelming circumstances that sometimes come your way. We all face times of anxiety and depression, and a little professional guidance can help us not just survive these times, but can result in happier, healthier people for facing the trials. I particularly believe that giving this healing space to children is beneficial; allowing their experiences and emotions to be treated respectfully and resolved empathically can let them move forward and make better choices throughout the rest of their lives.

I have 23 years experience working with individuals, children & families.
Making the decision to talk to someone about your "problems" can be very scary and anxiety producing. What people often don't realize is that it is a very courageous step toward a more fulfilling life. I encourage my client to not only talk about their "problems" but to talk about what they do that "works". I believe that unlocking your true potential will help you to make choices that are different.

Every person experiences adversity at some point in their lives. Sometimes you need an unbiased therapist to help you process personal issues and see situations from a different perspective. I can do that for you in a kind, caring, person centered way!I believe in meeting the client where they are at emotionally. Together we will use a variety of techniques to facilitate healing such as Cognitive Behavior Therapy, Neuro-Linguistic Programming exercises, Art Therapy, Dialectical Behavior Therapy and other methods that may apply.

I specialize in working with anxiety in children , teens, and adults and with Highly Sensitive People (HSPs).
Do you have a hard time putting yourself first? Do you find yourself walking on eggshells in your relationships? Are you a worrier? Do those worries and negative thoughts interfere constantly with your daily life? Do you get told you’re “too sensitive” or that you need to “toughen up”? You may feel like your brain never stops, even waking up in the middle of the night with a million thoughts in your head. You might find yourself replaying situations from yesterday or from 10 years ago obsessing about what went wrong. You often get stuck in a never-ending loop of anxiety and guilt. It’s exhausting, frustrating, and overwhelming!

He seems anxious and angry all the time. Maybe he'll talk to you." "My wife cheated and won't say why. I really want to save our marriage." "I pretend I'm happy, but I'm actually miserable. I'm stuck at home, drinking too much, and I'm thinking about hurting myself." "I'm really worried and scared about COVID-19." If this sounds like you, reach out.

Happiness and success are universal goals. Unfortunately, with all the stress and pressure placed on young people today, many children and adolescents have trouble maintaining hope that these lifelong dreams are attainable. I have spent my time working with the youth and empowering them to gain the tools and strategies needed to self-actualize, unlock their potential, and overcome their circumstances. I have helped guide young athletes who are learning to navigate the educational, social, and emotional aspects of sports. I have supported children caught in the juvenile justice, group home, and foster care systems.
