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.

If you are trying to better understand your child or help them through a difficult time; I offer families the support and nurture to grow stronger together. Too often children can be labeled by behaviors when they are struggling to communicate something valuable. I assist parents in exploring the meaning behind these behaviors by taking time to reflect on the relationships, interactions, and care giving responses to improve the overall quality of the relationship.

My goal as a therapist is to help people get back on track with what is truly important in their lives and let go of the unnecessary struggle that psychological pain can create. I believe that everyone can learn to take a new perspective on pain and suffering in order to prevent it from acting as a barrier to the most important parts of their lives.

Hello! I am a licensed therapist that is passionate about my work with children, adolescents, and their families. Often, it is difficult for children to express what they are feeling because they either don't have the language skills or may not know either. This can result in strong emotions that feel overwhelming and even frustrating. I support your child in understanding these feelings and using their unique strengths to better manage them. I will partner with you to understand these feelings, which lead to stronger, deeper relationships.

Does your child struggle to express their feelings in a safe and effective way? As a licensed therapist, I understand that when children act out or become withdrawn, they could actually be asking for help. Often children and even adolescents do not have the skills to manage or share overwhelming emotions. I believe that every client deserves individualized treatment so they can use their unique strengths to generate positive change within themselves and throughout their lives. I provide a safe and nonjudgmental space for us to work together to address the challenges your child and family are facing.
