About

Kids and teenagers encounter new challenges every day. School, sports, activities, and family dynamics can lead to anxiety, stress, and even depression. They may feel overwhelmed and struggle to talk about what is going on. They may be scared, feel embarrassed, or feel unsure of who to talk about what they are feeling. You may have noticed changes in their behavior or mood as a result. I work with kids, teenagers, and families to identify and gain understanding of what has led to their struggles and collaboratively work on how to move forward. I bring a different energy to therapy.
I’m a huge nerd and love all things sci-fi, fantasy, and everything in between. Tell me about the things you love and are passionate about! Like a certain movie, tell me about it so I can watch and learn why you like it. Love an anime or video game? Sign me up! Enjoy art and music? Tell me what medium and genre and we will work it into therapy.
Therapy isn’t always sitting around talking about the past; it’s also looking forward and learning how we get there together using what you enjoy and are good at doing. I utilize a strength-based approach to see what is going well for you to help build you up and tackle your issues. I look forward to helping you make positive changes!
