I am passionate about helping children and their families.
Children are very resilient and they are often aware of the environment around them much more than adults often understand. I believe in empowering children through highlighting their strengths and celebrating the small (or large) victories with them. I seek to provide clients with a space where they can experience age-appropriate independence, growth, and hope.

As human beings, most of us have suffered traumas of varying degrees. Whether it was from abusive or neglectful parenting, violent behaviors in others, or the painful experience of rejection and abandonment, these experiences often leave an emotional imprint on our psyche. As children we were unequipped to deal with these hardships and we developed coping skills to avoid further pain, the most common being an unforgiving inner critic. My approach is to help resolve and release the emotional wounds from the past, as well train the mind to focus on the truth of our inherent worth and dignities as human beings.
