Having extensive clinical history in higher levels of care, applying CBT exposure therapy, and being certified in DBT I have confidence your child/teen will learn techniques they will want to use both inside and outside of sessions.
Everyone deserves to be accepted, appreciated and acknowledged. When stress overcomes we often forgot how deserving we are of these needs. That's why it is my mission to supply a safe space for your child/teen to reconnect in expanding their self-worth and coping skills. Since everyone is unique, I adapt my approach to meet their needs, while integrating evidenced based practices along with humor, art, and play.

I have always had a heart for children, especially those who are struggling. I believe that the mental health of children is of utmost importance as the experiences they have at a young age shape who they become as teenagers and, ultimately, adults. While counseling can be a serious matter for children, I believe in the importance of providing relaxed and enjoyable child-focused sessions. My therapy is centered around fun, play-based activities that help foster an environment which feels safe, inviting, and engaging for children.

As a parent with a struggling child, you often wonder what you can do to make them feel better. It seems like everything you have tried isn’t working. It can be a bit overwhelming to find outside resources because you want to make sure you find someone that can connect with your child. How would it feel to know that they will ask for help when they need it? I have personal experience with ADHD, anxiety, and depression, which gives me a unique perspective during the counseling experience. I will guide your child by developing healthy perceptions of themselves and the ability to strengthen their relationships.

By identifying your child's specific strengths and weaknesses, an individualized treatment plan will target interventions at home, school, and in the community.
I aim to help children, adolescents, and young adults struggling with academic/social success. Whether dealing with ADHD, Learning Disorders, social skill deficits, motivation, or limited access to support services - a neuropsychological evaluation is the first step on the road to success. Children are often referred by their pediatrician, neurologist, classroom/ resource teacher, or school psychologist due to concerns regarding their functioning. Comprehensive evaluations are tailored to your child's individual needs. Comprehensive neuropsychological evaluations typically include : intelligence, achievement/academic skills, executive functioning, learning and memory, language, visual spatial skills, coordination, social skills, behavioral and emotional functioning, and personality.
