About

Is your child or teen struggling with feeling anxious or depressed, experiencing anger outbursts or other behavioral difficulties at home or school? As a parent, are you struggling with knowing how to help your child? Therapy is a great place to start and I can help. I have 29 years of experience working in the mental health field, with the past 23 of those practicing as a Clinical Social Worker.
My goal as a therapist is to provide a safe, supportive environment, in which clients can learn, grow and make better choices. My passion involves working with children to empower them to have a voice and an outlet to express their thoughts, feelings and learn how to change negative thought patterns. I also involve parents as part of the healing process.
Life can be very unpredictable, challenging and scary, especially for children. I offer a therapeutic environment for them to express their feelings. I look forward to working with you and having the opportunity to help enhance your child’s overall emotional well-being and be able to function and carry out daily responsibilities in a healthy manner.
