I work with children and adolescents with anxiety, depression, ADHD, low self-esteem, behavioral concerns, and poor peer relationships.
Art therapy may look like just a fun creative process, but it is an effective therapeutic technique that utilizes the creative process to help improve the mental health and emotional well-being of people of all ages. Discovering healthy and creative forms of expression is empowering for those who find a voice through the creative processes of making art. I believe in a positive, holistic, and gentle approach that honors the individual and encourages healing and personal growth. During our time together, I help you and/or your child explore yourself in this safe space beyond language and conversation.

I have helped parents better understand their children and develop new parenting skills, worked with families and patients who are living with brain injury to help them cope with grief and to accept their “new normal,” and helped LGBT people, of all ages, to support and affirm their journey.
I see psychotherapy as a partnership and a process, where the client is the expert about their own life and the therapist is a guide. My emphasis is on helping clients change unhelpful behavior and thinking patterns that prevent them from building and maintaining positive and lasting relationships. The core of good therapy is based on building a relationship of trust, empathy and respect for the client. I provide an environment of safety and trust where we can explore issues, fears, concerns, and hopes. My goal is to transfer knowledge, skills and confidence so, eventually, you won’t need me!

"It's a privilege to be able to bear witness to someone's story when they may not have had the chance to tell it before." - Lindy Alexander. I believe in the celebration of baby steps, because they lead to growth, evolving, and newfound strength. I provide a space absent of judgment, and full of empathy. Are you a parent struggling to understand your child 's feelings and behaviors? I can provide space for both parenting strategies and the child 's expression of emotions through play.

I am a Health/School Psychologist, LPC, Play Therapist, and former educator with 25+ years of experience working with children /adolescents with academic, emotional, or behavioral concerns.
Trauma, life stress, and emotional difficulties can cause persons to encounter challenges at home, work, and school. Some experiences are routine, although sometimes events create less positive outcomes in family/peer relationships or school/work performance. Persons can feel overly worried or hopeless; engage in damaging behaviors; or face changes to socializing, eating, or sleeping habits. If you are experiencing challenges, I can help you help you modify old patterns using various expressive creative modalities.

Because children do not come with a handbook, parents are often wondering if they are parenting correctly. Sometimes your house and your relationships can feel strained due to the challenges of parenting. Parents can feel as if the child is in charge of the emotional barometer of the house. Most parents at some point experience feelings of being overwhelmed and not knowing how to be effective and supportive at the same time. Therapy is a way of taking those first steps toward making positive changes for yourself and your family. By making small changes, you will be able to enjoy a more fulfilling parenting experience.

My specialty areas are counseling children and adolescents with academic, behavioral, or family issues.
I know you want the best life possible, and at times, it may seem out of reach--but its only temporary. It is my professional and personal belief that in us, we have all that is needed, to live our best life. At times we get "stuck" and we need help--counseling is that help. As a counselor for over 20 years, I have had the opportunity to work with people from various backgrounds. I work along side you and will help you to "see" where you want to go and to develop a plan to get there.

As a parent I know that seeing your child go through these difficult situations can be overwhelming and discouraging. When children are having a hard time they don’t always use their words to communicate what they are experiencing. Oftentimes they show it in their behaviors. This can look like tantrums, not listening, avoiding, talking back, misbehaving in school or even self harm. It can be difficult to manage or know what to do when these behaviors occur. Raising children can be challenging and guiding them through the stages of growing up can be even more challenging but you don't have to do it alone.

I provide narrative and play therapy to safely process trauma (including child abuse, domestic violence, reproductive trauma, and more), cultivate self-compassion and a sense of agency.
Are you stuck and needing to process childhood trauma? Do you feel like no one understands the challenges and heartache of infertility (miscarriage, pregnancy loss, IVF or adoption)? Is your child sad, anxious, or angry, and you know they need help? I shifted careers into mental health counseling in 2016 after 20 years of community work to end violence against women and children . The last 8 of those years, I rode the infertility rollercoaster myself. I am a therapist now because I believe you - and your family - deserve a chance to feel guided and supported on your journey.
