It can be difficult as a parent watching your child or teen struggling with feelings and situations in his or her world. Finding the right therapist can be a tough decision. I help children, teens and families find their strengths and facilitate learning to use those abilities to navigate challenges, difficult times or situations, repair relationships and rediscover excitement and joy in their lives. Bringing together advanced degress in both child and adolescent development and clinical psychology, our work together focuses on helping you, your child or teen, and your family find the path that is right for you.

Trained in play therapy, family therapy, and cognitive behavioral therapy, my style is interactive, well-grounded, and eclectic. I have worked with children, teens and their families in school-based settings, clinics, residential treatment facilities, day-treatment programs, and in private pratice. Every child has the right to soar!

Combining solution-focused work to help with immediate behavioral issues, and deeper, client-centered work to address underlying issues is an approach that often works well for parents and kids. But therapy is also about relationship - if this doesn't feel productive, I am happy to help with referrals.
