I am a licensed professional counselor with a passion for working with children and adolescents struggling with behavioral and emotional concerns. Conditions I commonly address include depression, anxiety, high functioning autism, ADHD, oppositional behavior, school resistance, and much more. In fact, I have been specially trained in Applied Behavioral Analysis (ABA) Therapy, a common approach to working with children with behavioral concerns on the autism spectrum. I equally enjoy working with adults, couples, and families and I have experience working with anxiety, depression, relationship difficulties, PTSD, and more.

I utilize an eclectic approach to counseling, tailoring strategies and interventions to the presenting individual and family. I enjoy incorporating mindfulness into my practice. I believe success in therapy comes from a strong therapeutic relationship and value the role of teamwork between the client and therapist when working to overcome current struggles.

Seeking therapy can be scary, but with the right client-therapist team, anything is possible. If you think we would be a good fit, please feel free to reach out to me by phone or email and I will get back to you at my earliest convenience.
