As a Licensed Clinical Social Worker, I specialize in families struggling with challenging behaviors at home or school, regardless of the age of the child. Having worked for over 25 years across clinical settings, I have extensive experience with children presenting with the struggles of ADHD, ODD/CD, anxiety, depression and ASD. My goal is to empower parents, by supporting the creation of lasting, positive change, through a combination of 1:1 counseling and parent coaching. My therapeutic model is solution focused, Cognitive-Behavioral, short term and based in a foundation of the Nurtured Heart Approach philosophy.

I see children of all ages, from preschool into adulthood. I have a passion for the most intense children and families. Combining cognitive-behavioral therapy, psychoeducation and Social Thinking, I work to support children onto a pathway of success and off of the downward trajectory of behavioral diagnoses.

Traditional parenting, "positive parenting" and behavior plans typically make problem behaviors worse for intense children. As a mother of 4 and therapist, I am passionate about supporting families. Through focused relationship and clarity, children move beyond "improvement" to transformation. I would be honored to start you on this journey.
