"Hello, and welcome! I specialize in providing support for children, teens, and their families. Throughout this process, I first meet with parents to get a better understanding of what has been going on with the child, and to get an overall idea of family functioning. Then, we will work together to create a treatment plan, and figure out specific goals to work on that will bring about positive change and growth. I believe a parent’s participation in this process is essential, as parents are the ultimate experts on their child, and can also benefit from a therapist’s support!"

"Often, life turns out wildly different than we planned or hoped for. Sometimes we find that the usual ways of coping don't seem to be working anymore, or kids bring up unexpected feelings in us. I work with children and parents navigating life's curveballs that often include behavioral issues, school challenges, anxiety, and trauma. Understanding a child's experience helps to find the underlying sources of tension. Exploring parents' own histories helps to foster a stronger, deeper relationship and increase moments of joy. I am able to connect well with both kids and adults to create a safe, comfortable and empowering environment. "

I then work with the client to use their strengths to help them form a new story, a story where they change ingrained habits and live the life they have always dreamed of living. I believe in hope and transformation and see psychotherapy as a way to access these qualities within oneself.

Yet for some of us, sometimes the 'not great' days last weeks, at times months, and even years. This makes life just that much harder to live. It makes relationships hard to make and keep, makes it difficult to succeed in school or work and impairs our ability to complete even the simplest of tasks.
