About

My mission is to provide a continuum of care to families seeking social-emotional support for children and adolescents experiencing complex behavioral needs. Using a multimodal approach to address the unique needs of my clients, I work collaboratively to help each client and their families to achieve a healthy, balanced lifestyle. I offer individual, group, and family therapy and work with clients of all ages including children, adolescents, and adults.
I have over 15 years experience working with children and adolescents on a wide array of issues ranging from sexual abuse and trauma to more complex behavioral needs. Majority of my career, I have worked as a school social worker and have extensive knowledge on navigating the school system and the special education process.
I have both professional and personal experience working with individuals on the Autism Spectrum and have a special interest in helping families with the unique challenges that they face. I view therapy as a partnership and work with my clients to set mutually agreeable goals that they would like to achieve in order to support their loved one.
