I have a history of working in non profit agencies with children, adolescents, and families.
Life is full of transitions, whether in childhood or adulthood. They are part of life and can be positive or negative. Life will always throw something your way. I'd like to help you through these transitional periods and make the journey smooth and comfortable. Seeking treatment can be a difficult choice, but in the end is a rewarding part of life. I'm looking to support parents of young children, children/teens transitioning to new stages of life, adolescents transitioning to college, new mothers adjusting to being a parent, and women who are struggling with job/school/relationship/motherhood stressors.

I offer children, adolescents, and teens an outlet to explore the challenges of navigating peer pressures, complicated family dynamics, and the increasing pressures of transitioning into adulthood.
Teen angst? Bring it on! I work with adolescents, teens, and parents in navigating some of the most difficult years. If you are having difficulty connecting with your child, tween, or teen I will assist you with enhancing your connection while simultaneously setting boundaries as a parent. Sounds like a difficult feat? I know! But isn't it from the challenging times that we gain the most? Do you remember what it was like getting through middle school? Many of us would like to forget, however, with assistance it does not have to be so difficult for your child or for you to reach them.

With children, I use a holistic, developmentally appropriate, child-centered approach to play therapy.
Healing happens within the context of a respectful, caring and nonjudgemental therapeutic relationship. When we work together, you can be yourself. I want to see you and help you to understand yourself in new ways. I am direct, while also gentle. I hold a lot of space for empathy and understanding, and building trust. And of course, there is always room for humor on any journey! I use a combination of evidence-based, cognitive-behavioral (or "talk") therapy, expressive arts, music and mindfulness-based stress reduction techniques to connect with you and help guide you toward feeling like the best version of yourself.

I strive to meet you where you are at in order to offer you validation. Feeling seen and heard will get you the majority of the way to where you are going because you already have what you need within you. I am here to remind you of that, and point it all out for you. In seeking out support, you are already well on your way to feeling unburdened and lighter.

Life can be complicated and confusing. Making room for joy, for satisfaction – for even a deep breath – can get pushed aside amid the demands of family, school, work, and the flood of world news. You may be struggling with newness, such as new parenthood or going away to college, or with the loss of a loved one or a long-term way of living. You may have experienced a traumatic event, or be concerned with emotional eating. Or maybe you just feel that something isn’t quite right, as an individual or as a couple, even though life looks fine on the surface.

Or, they may not be asking the right questions. They may be looking for more calm, more joy and more control over their thoughts, feelings and behaviors.

I have been trained in the Expressive Arts and bring art into sessions with both children and adults to add insight and deepen self-observation.
I believe that all people have innate skills and strengths and have the potential to live rich and meaningful lives but sometimes get stuck in patterns and behaviors that interfere with their ability to grow. I believe psychotherapy is an important tool to help people discover their natural ability to heal, to love and to live healthy and fulfilling lives. Our fast-paced and demanding lives can create uncomfortable stressors in individuals and families. My time with each client provides an opportunity for calm and reflection in challenging and stressful lives.
