About

Are you struggling with sadness, motherhood stress, anger, relationships, or family? Are you feeling emotionally drained? Or maybe your child is having behavioral challenges, racial identity issues, or a hard time adjusting to a relocation, divorce or separation, or other change(s) in their life? I help rebuild and reunify individuals and families by teaching coping skills and better communication skills to children ages 3-18, adults, and families. I use different therapeutic interventions to meet the needs of my clients and achieve results. I help children and adults learn how to understand, control, and share their emotions appropriately, and make better choices.
In addition to talk therapy with adults and adolescents, I also use play therapy with children who have a hard time appropriately expressing their feelings and experiences. I specialize in family therapy, perinatal mood and anxiety disorders, race, ethnicity, and cultural identity issues, working with children and adolescents with behavioral challenges, and parenting.
I provide clients with a safe, comfortable, and non-judgmental environment, to openly talk about their thoughts and feelings. I take an open-minded approach to client wellness and consider the client's work life, family traditions, cultural, and spiritual beliefs. I provide support for developing a new way of seeing and moving through life.
