About

I offer a caring and healing place for children and families to find solutions and hope. I have been working with children and families in the schools and in private practice for over 20 years, specializing in infant/toddler development, adolescent therapy, behavior analysis, play therapy, & adolescent girl issues. I am a Nationally Certified School Psychologist and Infant/Toddler Developmental Specialist. I am also a mother and I know how difficult it is to see your child struggling and not know where to find help. I offer the resources and support needed to help your child find happiness and success.
I offer individual and family therapy, behavior plans, and comprehensive psychoeducational/personality testing. I use cognitive therapy, applied behavior analysis, and other individualized therapeutic methods to help children, adolescents, and families find success with developmental delays, ADHD, academic/learning difficulties, depression, anxiety, traumas and a wide range of other issues.
As an older mom, I also offer support for women/couples dealing with fertility issues. I am well-versed in traditional and alternative healthcare for fertility and can work with you to map out your best chance for success while helping you find peace throughout this stressful process.
