About

I have been working with adults, teenagers, young children, and families as a whole for many years, using a positive strengths-based approach. I specialize in a number of evidence-based therapies including Cognitive Behavioral Therapy for adults and teenagers, Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, Play Therapy, Art Therapy, Sandplay Therapy, Family Systems Therapy, and general behavioral modification for younger children and adolescents. I am committed to helping people of all ages with a range of challenges such as sells-harm, suicidal ideation, divorce, depression, anxiety, self-esteem, school refusal, trauma, attachment/adjustment difficulties, oppositional behaviors, and general family conflict.
Raising children can be challenging and confusing for parents. Young children often struggle with fears or anxieties that they do not understand, and have trouble verbalizing to their caregivers. With play therapy I have been able to help many families better understand their children's needs and nurture their development.
I meet with people of all ages with various concerns not necessarily related to family conflict. People come for help coping with many different stressors and mood issues. I am hear to listen without judgement, in order to help you understand your past and bring mindfulness into your future.
