Maybe you have a child who has many worries or is prone to negative thinking? Maybe your child is feeling overwhelmed with anger not knowing how to control the rage? Or maybe your teen is having difficulty connecting socially with others and forming meaningful relationships? Having a child with behavioral and developmental challenges can be distressing for family members. Therapy can help reduce worries, increase emotional awareness, and build skills of resiliency. I am passionate about working with children, teens, and families who are affected by Autism Spectrum Disorder, ADHD, anxiety and developmental and learning differences.

Perhaps you know you have the intelligence and skills to get through college, but the simple act of starting an assignment is so overwhelming that the pressure itself makes it feel impossible to begin. Or you have a deep desire to form relationships, but you don’t know where to start and always end up feeling like you’ve failed when you try. Maybe you have a job that doesn't suit you, or are unemployed and can’t seem to get past the interview process.
