I primarily work with preteens and teens struggling with depression and anxiety. Often times, I have seen these presenting issues emerge due to conflicts in identity, within relationships, and even thinking about the future. I also see kids struggling with trauma as well, ranging in varying degrees of traumatic events the child has endured. While many of my kids that I have worked with come from different backgrounds, many strive for the same type of goals: Purpose & meaning, self-awareness, and happiness.

As a holistic psychotherapist, I maintain a "mind-body-environment" perspective to understand how mental, emotional, physical and spiritual health are interconnected and interrelated to our relationships with others, the environment (nature-culture) and ourselves. I recognize that when those elements are imbalanced, it creates symptoms that can lead to suffering. Anxiety and depression, among other mind-body symptoms, are both cause and effect of this imbalance. They are also the cause of feeling stagnant in life, another root of suffering. Therefore, I hope to work with my patients to create balance and find flow in their life.
