As human beings we learn, develop meaning, and create a sense of purpose through each other and the relationships we form. In the same spirit I believe the therapeutic process is driven by the relationship formed between the client and the therapist. This is why my approach in therapy is guided by the question - "How can I provide a relationship which this person may use for their personal growth?" I strive to create an empathic, nonjudgmental atmosphere where you feel safe and empowered to work toward personal growth and creating lasting change; forming trust and leaning toward vulnerability.

There are countless methods for healing & moving forward. Commitment to my clients begins with a firmly held belief in the ability of individuals to advocate for themselves & choose their own path. Emotions & feelings are a gift; they are the natural barometer for navigating our lives. Often we fear or misinterpret those emotions & fall into a holding pattern as to how to move forward. The best work is done when we are honest and open about who we are, and where we want to be. Interventions are guided through your ideals & values.

"Kids are resilient." "They'll grow out of it." "This too shall pass." Are you feeling exhausted hanging on to these parenting tropes while raising a big feeling kid? Are you feeling as if no parenting books have prepared you for the challenges of raising a child with big emotions, high anxiety, or defiant behaviors? Therapy is a powerful tool in which children learn to process their feelings and regulate their emotions. Early intervention in children's therapy is key to raising an emotionally healthy child while fostering deeper connection and harmony at home and at school.

If you can change your thoughts you can change your world. I believe that our day to day thoughts directly dictate our emotions and ultimately our decisions and actions. Whether it is childhood trauma, adult anxiety or postpartum depression, we can take captive every self-defeating thought and turn that negative narrative into a powerful and hopeful future. Regaining control over our thoughts and actions can provide such lasting peace and happiness. My focus is to thoroughly get to know my patients, my listening to and trying my best to understand their unique experiences, while working collaboratively toward agreed upon goals.

“The only way out is through.” This quote captures my belief system and was stated by the legendary psychotherapist Fritz Perls. I feel we must come face to face with addressing the hard things and process all the difficult emotions we are going through in order to create change and come out of it all in a better place. I live and breathe working with children that we at AMANI Clinical Services refer to affectionately as “Littles” or “Itty Bitties” (under 8 years old). I have a wealth of experience and education in early childhood mental health and parent-child relationships.

I've designed programs to support parents who have children with behavioral problems while strengthing the parent-child relationship by building on their strenghts.
Raising challenging children can be exhausting and frustrating. You feel guilty about not being able to fix your child's behavioral problems and confused about what to do next. Although many professionals recommend your child take medication, you are not comfortable with it. Your child may be disagnosed with ADHD, ODD, OCD, Depression, Anxiety or have other disruptive behavioral components. You are looking for some options that help you feel good about your parenting style while helping your child succeed. If this sounds like your story in any way, you are not alone and I can help.

Families are under considerable stress due to loss of "normal" routines and uncertainty about the future. These fears affect everyone in the family differently. Parents find themselves overwhelmed, anxious, or irritable. Teens may appear withdrawn, sad, or frustrated. And children have a range reactions from very little to acting out behaviors. My passion is deeply understanding a whole family system and help the system thrive. I value supporting each family member and their unique needs. I provide parents with a space to process fears and enhance parenting. I help teens and children create positive coping and behavior strategies.
