I have my doctorate in clinical psychology and am a licensed psychologist who specializes in treatments proven to increase children 's positive feelings and ability to cope. I work with children ages 6-17 and have been providing therapy for the past 12 years. Some areas of treatment interest are anxiety, phobias, trauma, and adjustment issues (such as grief, divorce, food allergies). I have a certified therapy dog named Willow. If clients do not want Willow in session, then she is not a part of therapy. Willow is an mini Aussiedoodle, which means she has minimal shedding and is more allergy-friendly.

*accepting new private insurance* I believe that everyone is unique and deserves a therapeutic approach that will meet their needs. I have worked hard in creating a personalized approach to therapy which allows each person to be the center and go through their journey at their pace. A dedicated play room, allows children to explore and process at their level through play and creativity. With Teenagers, my focus is on their skills & strengths and building them up to help them meet their goals and overcome obstacles. With adult clients I provide a safe place where they can process openly without fear or judgement.

Do you ever want someone to talk with about stressors, life challenges or improve your mood? Let's face it 2020 brought more changes and perhaps challenges to us all. Perhaps, your child needs to talk with someone about their stress/mood or learn new ways to express their feelings? We all need support at times. Therapy is support and teaming with a therapist to identify possible solutions to the stressors in our lives. I would be honored to talk and work with you.

If you are stuck in a life situation, emotional rut or just don't know what or who to turn to for guidance, maybe you have been struggling with isolation, past trauma, or have a child that just doesn't seem to get along well with others at home or school, feel free to call and schedule an appointment today!.
Sometimes putting yourself first is one of the most challenging things to do, asking for help taking care of your mental health feels overwhelming these days. Add in daily stressors of managing schoolwork, job stress, family drama, peer conflict and just struggling to function normally can be too much for children and adults. As adults we may worry about how we look and seem to others, or have some other underlying issue we aren't comfortable sharing with others or may struggle to build deeper meaningful relationships to build our support network. Counseling can offer an outlet to process your concerns outside of that network.
