I specialize in providing individual psychotherapy to children and adolescents with a wide-range of emotional and behavioral difficulties. Although my expertise is with youth with mood disorders, including anxiety and depression, I also have extensive experience with youth with social and behavioral struggles. My approach is cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) in focus, as it is best supported by research, children and adolescents respond to it very positively, and because I have found it to produce immediate and long-lasting improvements in functioning.

I pursued advanced clinical training in the Department of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry at Stanford so that I could learn and implement the most current, effective treatments for anxiety and eating disorders.
Throughout my training I pursued clinical experiences that provided me with a solid foundation in understanding, assessing and treating individuals and families. I have worked with infants, children , adolescents and young adults with diverse challenges. I collaborate with families in a non-judgmental, open and compassionate manner. I draw upon my knowledge of evidence based practices that have scientific support for their effectiveness to provide treatment that is well matched to an individual's or family's strengths.

I team with adults, children , and parents to create solutions and awaken aspects of themselves they would like to grow. We work together to heal past pain, strengthen, and to build a fresh start. Our sessions will allow you to take time for yourself to step away from the expectations and pressures of the outside world so that you can feel, see, and build a stronger self. Taking a break from work, school, and life for one or two sessions a week allows for clarity of mind, strengthening of self, and a generation of a new mindset. I will work as your guide in providing you the tools you need to live your life more fully.

My specialty is helping individuals to work to remove challenges to achieving satisfaction in their lives. Many times we find ourselves stuck in patterns that are self-defeating but seem difficult to change. These may cause us problems in school and work, as well as in our peer and family relationships, and interfere with the enjoyment of pleasurable activities. These patterns may be due to our early experiences within our families, or as a result of challenges faced in adolescence and adulthood. No matter your age or phase of life, therapy can help.

Is your Child or Teen having problems with anxiety, depression, or self-esteem issues? Is your family having significant parent- child conflict? I want to help you & your family achieve a healthier life. Adolescents and young adults have unique challenges that can be difficult to navigate. During these critical periods in life, many may face peer issues, family conflict, self-esteem difficulty, parent- child conflict, and difficulty with transitions (e.g., high school to college; college to career). I have approximately 10 years of experience working with these age groups. Currently, I am also available to see young adult clients.
