Although I work with clients of all ages, I have a special passion for assisting children and teens in regulating strong emotions and behaviors.
Life is full of ebbs and flows. At times, life can seem overwhelming and unmanageable but I believe we each possess the tools within ourselves to overcome these difficult waves. My goal is to help you uncover those tools and assist you in achieving the life satisfaction you deserve! It takes courage to seek help, and by taking this step you have already proven yourself to possess a special strength. At the core of my practice, is a safe and non-judgmental space for clients to be truly understood.

Does your child have trouble focusing or performing in school? Are you looking for parent strategies to better support your child’s needs? Are you concerned with your child's mental health or development? As a parent/caregiver, your natural instinct is to provide support for your child, although knowing the "what" or "how" is not always clear. All behavior communicates something. Whether it is a skill deficit, learned pattern, or underlying symptom, determining what lies behind the behavior is the first step to supporting it. You bring the experience as the parent and together we will determine the "what," "why," and "how."
