I have 3 basic beliefs about therapy: 1) You are the expert when it comes to your life and your family; my job is to offer support and strategies during tough times. 2) Children deserve to be treated with patience and respect; at the same time, parents should be allowed to make mistakes, take breaks, and ask for help. 3) I am committed to understanding everyone who walks through my door as a unique individual rather than a problem or diagnosis.

I have significant experience with treating: autism spectrum disorders, ADHD, parenting issues, selective mutism, binge eating disorder, body-image issues, OCD, self-injury, trauma, anxiety, relationship issues, and stress-management.

In order to provide the most effective child therapy, I actively collaborate with teachers and other school professionals. I also enjoy counseling teens, college students, and adults.
