I specialize in working with children and teenagers. Just like many of us, our youth have been greatly affected by the pandemic. Difficult emotions like anxiety, depression and despair have increased drastically as our kids are experiencing changing environments with school, feeling cut off from peers and having worries about their ever changing future. I also work with adults with similar concerns; sometimes we just need someone to talk to and help us make sense of things. We are better able to face the unknown together.

My interests include working with children, adolescents, & adults who have endured traumatic experiences.
We’ve been hearing for years from clients about how their previous therapist was a good listener, but they didn’t feel like they made much progress. While active listening is an important skill for a therapist, listening can only go so far. We believe what sets us apart from many other therapists is the fact we actually help you help yourself make the necessary changes in your life by giving you techniques, tools, skills, and guidance to achieve your goals. You’ll almost always walk out of a session with a new technique or two that you can go home and start using immediately.

Although I am comfortable with all ages and a variety of issues, I tend to specialize in the treatment of children and young adults.
My ideal client is interested in both understanding the "why" a psychological issue has brought them to me as well as how they may address it. Many times, patient's will present for treatment with the belief that if they gain insight into their issues that they will resolve. For others, they may want the issues "fixed", but are not willing to look into the patterns of how they arrived there. An ideal client is looking to both understand their issue, but also make changes in their lives to address the issue or change how they think about it.
