I have experience working with children and adolescents in a community mental health setting as well as through telehealth. In my experience, kids often have a difficult time expressing their emotions and processing trauma, simply because they don’t have the words to explain what is happening inside of them. That is why I use tools such as play therapy and expressive art therapy as a way of providing my clients with a safe place to process their emotions and experiences.

Special areas of interest for me include children and teens, new (and soon-to-be new!) mothers, and individuals living with significant health diagnoses.
The world is changing and with it, our overall understanding of health and wellness. Mental health is at the forefront of cultural awareness right now and therapy is more accessible than ever. It is my goal as a clinician to help you recognize and embrace the role that mental health plays in your overall sense of well-being. I believe therapeutic “check-ups” are just as vital as routine doctor visits and that preventive mental health care can work wonders for issues both large and small. My hope is that I can help you on your journey to being more proactive and less reactive when it comes to advocating for (and loving!) yourself.

It's tough to be a kid or teen right now and it's tough to parent a kid or teen. The more motivated a young person and their family are to improve, the more successful we are in therapy.
