I know it's hard to take that first step. I am a strength-based family-systems-trained therapist who believes, "it is never too late to be what you might have been." I believe that who we are both in and out of relationship is not fixed, and that implementing small steps toward change is both do-able and rewarding. My passion for therapy is grounded in the belief that problems and worry held in isolation grow, whereas voicing them aloud in a safe place and working together with a compassionate and skilled therapist can help reduce them to a manageable size.

My clients come in with many different troubles and often, the troubles lead to a great many other problems that they have or have had in their lives.

To feel "okay" and, today's society tries to warp us into believing we are not okay because we need something else than what we have right now. We all have the capacity to choose a better life, better relationships, better care for ourselves. The answer is not outside of us but within. I work with children, teens and adults that think they're not enough. We are all enough.

Licensed Professional Counselor, MA, CAS, NCSP, LPC
I specialize in working with children, adolescents, and teens with anxiety, ADHD, and other emotional, behavioral and social challenges. I believe in an individualized approach to therapy, incorporating cognitive-behavioral techniques, play therapy, social skills instruction, and emotional regulation strategies. My practice is aimed at ensuring that each client develops a healthy sense of self and feels equipped to handle the stressors of everyday life.

Clients often seek psychotherapy because something feels “off” or there are struggles which result in developmental and life transitions in their families. Unexplored behavioral and emotional responses can keep us feeling “stuck” and prevent us from fulfilling relationships and careers. Each client is unique and there is no such thing as “one size, fits all” therapy. I provide both long-term and shorter term support for clients facing setbacks/life changes. Therapy should help clients find a lifelong “compass” with which to navigate life's transitions.
