About

Raising a child with a disability can be difficult, frustrating, and exhausting. My approach is to help act as a coach/collaborator for parents by helping support them manage emotional and behavioral issues in a positive manner. I have over 12 years experience working with children and adolescents with developmental and intellectual disabilities. My special areas of interest include: autism spectrum disorders, ADHD, and behavior disorders. I have extensive knowledge of schools and special education processes. I collaborate with schools and other health care professionals to provide the most effective well rounded treatment for your child.
I strive to create a safe, supportive, relaxed environment during the therapy process. I use a combination of cognitive behavioral, art and play therapy to provide a well rounded therapeutic environment. Through the development of learning new skills and techniques, children/adolescents can be empowered to deal with the stresses of life, growth and development.
