They are looking for skills to learn how to cope with anxiety, depression, or focus/attention issues in order to be more successful. Many of our clients struggle with peer related issues around making and keeping friends. They are looking to be supported, not judged. They are looking for skills, not just talk therapy.

Specialties include: Autism and other developmental disabilities, parent support, ADHD, PTSD, Depression, anxiety and life transitions such as grief and loss or divorce.
Sometimes we operate under patterns that cause challenges in our lives and we do not know how to manage things on our own. A benefit of therapy is that together we can find ways to help you gain a better understanding of yourself, your wants and needs, your feelings, your situation, your relationships and connections with others. This is the benefit of having a therapist. You have someone who is allowed to meet all of the different parts of you and who is in line with helping you become the best version of yourself.

I specialize in conducting psychological testing in order to diagnose Autism Spectrum Disorder, ADHD, and other mental health disorders such as anxiety and depression.
Our practice provides psychological assessments for children and adolescents. Through testing, families can obtain answers to specific questions about their child's mental health needs in order to guide next steps for treatment. Children who benefit most from testing are those who may qualify for a diagnosis of Autism Spectrum Disorder, have symptoms of ADHD, and/or have been struggling to make progress in treatment. I believe that utilizing a collaborative approach to treatment is essential in obtaining positive outcomes for children and ensuring their success in the future. We DO NOT offer individual therapy.
