I am certified as a Fellow in Thanatology from the Association of Death Education and Counseling, a certified Bereavment Facilitator, and specialize in working with children and families.
Experiences of grief and loss occur throughout the life span.The response to these experiences is unique and personal. I believe everyone has a story which is important to tell. As a therapist I work to create a trusting environment in which to tell that story. It is in the understanding of the story one can discover solutions to problems, acceptance of the past and hope for the future.

As a Child Therapist, I help children with coping strategies who are experiencing managing different emotions such as anger or anxiety.
Working with children and their families has always been the core of my practice. As a systems therapist, working with the family is as important as working with the child that presents for treatment. My primary focus is helping families in conflictual custody cases choose a more peaceful way of resolving problems in a more constructive and less adversarial way that minimizes the emotional pain for all family members, especially the children.

I am able to integrate a number of therapeutic interventions with an overall focus on client-centered and child-centered therapy.
**NOT CURRENTLY ACCEPTING NEW PATIENTS** I enjoy working with individuals of all ages including geriatrics. The majority of my experience has been with children and adolescents with emotional disorders, behavioral disorders, autism, and PANS/ PANDAS. I also have experience working with individuals who have experienced traumatic stress. I am effective at helping individuals cope with major and minor life stresses. I also enjoy doing diagnostic evaluations for individuals of all ages including cognitive, emotional, and personality assessment that can be used to inform therapeutic intervention and gain resources outside of therapy.

At both agencies, I have been one of the primary therapists to work with families of young children and adolescents, as well as clients with ADHD.
I work with clients of all ages with a wide variety of issues. My ideal client would be anyone (individual, couple, or family) who has identified an area(s) in life that needs to be worked on and has made the choice to work on that area(s). Simply making that decision sets the foundation for successful treatment.

We are a child and family psychology practice. My associates and I believe in a cooperative treatment experience where client and therapist share responsibility for the identification and mutual direction of problem solving strategies. We are convinced of the importance of involving significant others in the treatment process when possible. Often children and adolescents react to problems in the context of school and family. We value feedback from teachers and staff professionals and look for collaborative relationships in pursuing the best needs of the child or adolescent.

My goal is to assist children and parents in developing a behavioral repertoire as similar as possible to a typical child.
I strive to use the most advanced and evidence-based teaching strategies available. My teaching techniques are based on the principles of Applied Behavior Analysis. I aim to teach children skills that can be generalized across a variety of people and settings. Parent training is an essential part of my program that ensures the child continues to apply and hone those new skills throughout the day. I regularly coordinate my efforts with interdisciplinary team members such as teachers, speech pathologists, and occupational therapists.

At any point, we can all struggle with stress, anxiety, sadness or have a difficult time managing certain aspects of our lives.
