For parents, I work with you in offering skilled support for your child as well as helping you navigate the complexities of parenting with respect, expertise, and collaboration.
No one is an expert more on your life than you. However, sometimes inviting in trusted support helps you get perspective on your fears, disappointments, and confusion about next steps in life. No matter the season of life, asking for help is both courageous and what moves you forward. Your resiliency and your strengths are how you navigate through life’s challenges. You and your loved ones are not a diagnosis; being human is not a flaw but a strength to be honored.

I understand that it is challenging to navigate the day-to-day life of parenting and want to help.
Are you having difficulty with managing challenging behaviors? Do you want your child to express their needs? I specialize in using Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) to help children, teens, or adults diagnosed with autism and developmental disabilities reach their developmental milestones. I will create goals and model how to improve communication, daily living (e.g. getting dressed), coping, safety (e.g. crossing the street), social, play, and reduce behaviors (e.g. tantrums and aggression). I am currently accepting new clients who need intensive direct 1:1 in-home ABA services.

I specialize in parenting issues, having worked with children and families for most of my career.
It takes courage to set up your first therapy appointment, and it can be challenging to find the “right fit” in a therapist. With the right fit, you can determine: the struggles you have and ways to overcome them, what is important and meaningful in your life, how to feel better and heal from bad memories, and how to communicate better with loved ones. These are often the goals of therapy. They may seem simple, but sometimes we struggle and spend years feeling unhappy or unfulfilled. I have worked with clients for 27 years helping people find their clarity and truth and welcome your call to determine if I'm the "right fit" for you.
