In response to the current Coronavirus pandemic, my priority is not only your mental health, but physical health and safety. I acknowledge that social distancing is key to preventing further spread of the virus, but mental health struggles do not disappear during times like these, which is why I am providing Telehealth until the current risk subsides and stabilizes. I look to create a safe space for my clients, whether it be children , adolescents, adults, families or couples to support progress towards mental health.

Sometimes, on our journeys in life, we reach obstacles that seem impossible to overcome. It is at these times, that we need a little help in finding a new direction or way of coping. I would be honored to walk with you on your journey and help you develop new skills/thoughts that can help you have a fuller, healthier, and more positive life. I can help you get a better sense of yourself and find strengths from within.

I work with children , adolescents, and adults to address immediate mental health concerns and strengthen their relationships.
It is hard to be a parent...and in the middle of a pandemic? Unbelievably hard. Many families that were healthy before COVID-19 are facing new issues that are causing chaos at home. Families that were already struggling are even more vulnerable during this time. Distance learning, working from home, and being isolated from other members of your support system can turn your family upside down. Even after this pandemic is “over”, mental health challenges may linger.

I have over 20 years of experience working with children and families: working on the frontline of CPS assessing risk and nurturing family resilience, working in adoption agencies to help families create and maintain lifelong connections, and providing in-home therapeutic parenting services to struggling families.
I imagine you're here because you feel like something needs to change. It's reassuring to know it's never too late to ignite curiosity about what's happening, develop closer, healthier family connections, and learn to assert yourself more successfully as a parent. It takes courage to let go of what's limiting you to make room for a happier life. I can support you and your child (ren) through this process by identifying, understanding, and reworking ineffective patterns and building new skills to reduce conflict and create a better life for your family.

I see children , individuals, groups and families.
The idea that one learns by experiencing and is truly capable of making the necessary shifts in their lives is a mantra I live by. When one person mirrors another with gentle listening, others are able to clearly see what no longer works in their lives. Ingrained habits coming from difficult childhoods could be the very source of havoc, that with conscious awareness, can shift. Perhaps the way one communicates is keeping love from flowing in your life. Maybe parenting a child who reminds you of yourself means confronting yourself on a deeply personal level. Or perhaps it is simply a life transition that is simply too much.
