Let's Connect (716) 687-0288
I strive to meet my clients where they are at without judgment or expectation; to offer a guiding light in the storms of life and provide a safe harbor. My approach to therapy is to provide individuals with a person-centered and strengths-based partnership grounded in trauma-informed evidence-based practices.
I specialize treating children 3-10 years old, but also individuals across the lifespan diagnosed with chronic illness/chronic pain (Fibromyalgia, MS, EDS, Lupus, T1 Diabetes), neurodivergence (Autism, ADHD, Sensory Sensitivities), and those with complex trauma histories. In addition, I provide psychiatric evaluations for bariatric surgery candidates.
If you are searching for a light in the darkness, solid ground to stand on, or a safe place to breathe, please contact me. We are not meant to handle life alone. It is my privilege to partner with you on your courageous wellness journey of self-reflection, self-compassion, self-discovery, healing, resilience and acceptance.
