My favorite clients to work with are children and teens ages 5 to 18 as well as young adults ages 19 - 35. I have an innate ability to connect and communicate with children and teens while at the same time being able to form a relationship with their parents to assist in the work they are doing in therapy. I work to create a safe, non-judgmental space that allows clients to be themselves. As a therapist, I show up authentically and establish a real connection using empathy, creativity, and humor.

My role is to guide you to uncover and empower the parts of you that have gone neglected and break through the patterns that no longer serve you. Together we will attempt to understand the parts of you that feel misunderstood, identify the ways you have undermined your potential, and work through the emotions that must inevitably be processed in order to step into and embrace your most authentic self.

It’s already hard enough to sit in feelings of uncertainty, hurt, or frustration. It’s even more difficult to accept vulnerability and reach out for support when we tend to fear judgement. Therapy has been portrayed as a stigma towards mental illness, but there’s more to the therapeutic process than just “treating an illness”. I am here to process emotions and thoughts with you while giving you alternative perspectives to reflect on. Processing released emotions allow relief which then provides me the opportunity to guide my clients in adopting and utilizing new tools and skills towards recovery.

The key to speech and language development is to create situations in which a child has to use speech and language to make something happen. For young children, the power of communication is best realized through play-based therapy, carefully aligned with developmental norms. Listening skills, vocabulary and sentence development, speech sound production, fluent speech, and social communication skills can all be intertwined in play-based therapy. Older children benefit from targeted tasks, high interest topics, learning through preferred modalities, and compensatory strategies as needed to increase their communication proficiency.

Throughout the many years I have been practicing, the greatest reward has been to help clients better understand themselves and find their own voice. We work together to examine the role their family of origin plays in their current choices and relationships. I have a particular expertise in working with individuals, couples, and families who are dealing with anxiety, depression, or trauma. By providing a safe space to explore relationship issues and limiting thought patterns, I am able to assist clients to better understand and accept themselves, and reduce critical self beliefs.
