As the parent of a struggling child or teen, you may wonder what you can do to help them feel better. I’m here to provide you and your family the support and guidance that will help you gain a deeper understanding of your child, and feel more connected to them. I am passionate and experienced in helping children, teenagers, and their families overcome life's challenges. I have seen many children and teens struggle to express or articulate their emotions. That’s what I am here for. I find playful ways to help children express their inner world while guiding parents to also be curious to what is under their behavior.

I came into the field of therapy because I have always been curious to how and what makes a relationship (romantic, friendship, or family) healthy and successful. Throughout my professional career I have worked with children, adolescents, adults, and families. It’s been a joy for me to empower my clients to develop and become more aware of their triggers, needs, and wants. In every client interaction, I learn the things that you need help with and we work together to put your story together in a meaningful way.

Whether triggered from within ourselves or from our environment, we often grapple with questions of identity, intimacy, isolation, change, and mortality. These 'deeper' themes may manifest as problematic behaviors (e.g., addictions, patterns of relating), rigid thought patterns, uncomfortable emotions, and feelings of emptiness. We may come to therapy searching for symptom relief, understanding, connection, and change.

Hello, and welcome! I am passionate about providing support for concerned parents/family members, teens, and children. Often times it can be hard for kids to express themselves, so parents are left wondering why their child is behaving in a certain way, or why they might be feeling down, angry, or distant. I work together with families to figure out what has been going on within the family, and what we can do to improve and strengthen those relationships.

As a caregiver, you want a meaningful relationship with your child that helps them to thrive, succeed and feel safe. But parenting can be difficult and feel overwhelming! Your child’s behavior may be impacting your relationships, work, and sleep. You may even feel stuck trying to figure out how to best connect with your child to help them grow. When I work with families, I meet with the caregiver first to gain a deeper understanding of the current challenges you are experiencing. Ultimately, you are the expert of your child, so together we will set goals and work together every step of the way.
