About

**Accepting new clients. Immediate Availability** Teenage life can be hard to understand, even when things are going well. Offering individual therapy for teens and pre-teens. Family therapy or parenting training available as well. All of us are living on a spectrum of surviving---------thriving. Whether you need support just getting through each day, or things are more stable and you're looking to grow, I'm here to support you wherever you are at!
My goal is to be someone that teens can trust and open up to, while also being a professional that parents confidently feel provides the best quality care for their child. I balance interpersonal connection and comprehensive risk assessment with a CBT-based approach. I also utilize DBT-based skills to complete a toolkit for managing life's twists and turns.
Wondering if I could be a good fit for your teen and/or family therapy needs? Please don't hesitate to reach out! I'm happy to provide consultations to parents, and teens are invited to participate in these conversations whenever possible. *At this time, I am only providing teletherapy.
