Life can be filled with unexpected challenges and I would love the opportunity to support you through your journey. I highly value the therapeutic relationship and work to build an environment where you feel safe, accepted, valued, and understood. Everyone is unique and I work to tailor the counseling process to meet your specific needs. Sessions may include play therapy, activity therapy, expressive arts, and/or traditional talk therapy. Most importantly, I want you to feel you are in the care of someone who can help you meet your goals. I offer a free phone consultation to help you decide.

While I work with a wide variety of individuals, I specialize in children, parent training, grief, trauma, anxiety, depression, and relationship concerns. I also have extensive training and experience working with individuals with Autism Spectrum Disorder. I have helped many individuals, couples, and families find improved self-understanding and happiness.

In addition to providing direct counseling services, I have specialized training in the administration and interpretation of assessments. A variety of assessments are available, including IQ, learning processes, emotional and behavioral functioning, personality, ADHD, development, social and adaptive skills, and autism diagnostic testing.

This extremely interactive camp is designed to help boys and girls learn teamwork skills, develop better conversation skills, enhance their self-confidence, and learn to handle conflicts peacefully. The UPC Social Skills Camp brings together small groups of children, based on their age to specifically work on three core areas: (1) strengthening and developing new social skills; (2) increasing self-confidence, self-control, and self-esteem; and (3) learning to successfully participate in conversations and positive social exchanges needed to effectively build and maintain social relationships. Group dates and times vary by age group. See our website for more details.
