Announcement icon To ensure everyone's safety, I am conducting my sessions via telehealth at this time.
I am currently accepting new clients. Do you worry about your child? Do you find yourself often feeling sad or anxious? Do you wish you could be your best self? With over twelve years of clinical experience, my style is fluid and catered to best suit the concerns and experience of my clients. I have worked with clients aged 3-93 in the context of individual, couples, and family therapy. I offer a strength-based approach and incorporate CBT, art/narrative therapy, interpersonal therapy, solution-focused therapy, and play therapy depending on needs and preferences of each client.
While I work with clients of all ages, I specialize in both children and adolescents. I have the expertise to connect with both the child and parent alike and help families organize problems into achievable goals while finding comfort and curiosity for the journey ahead. Families respond to my hopeful and energized attitude.
I work with multiple clinical disorders, including anxiety, mood disorders, trauma, ADHD, ODD, grief, intellectual disabilities, school issues, self-esteem, and more. At the heart of my practice is an appreciation for developing a safe, trusting, and collaborative therapeutic relationship. I look forward to hearing your story. Let's find your best self!
