At A Work of Heart Counseling, our approach is down to earth, genuine, and supportive. As the founder, and a modern, humanistic therapist, my goal is to make sessions feel safe and open. It can be nerve-wracking to call a therapist, so I work hard to make you feel comfortable, seen and heard. If your child, you, or your family are struggling with mood, school, life changes, having a family member with a disability or illness, or simply want more fulfillment out of life - give me a call. Together, we can overcome the obstacles and barriers you face!

Some of my specialties include working with children/teens with anxiety/depression, life transitions, autism/ASD, LGBTQ teens, parent coaching, future planning/family needs related to children with disabilities, family therapy, counseling for young adults, working with school related issues, and changing family dynamics.

I am a certified school social worker, and have been working in schools for years. As a result, I've become very familiar with children who have school-related problems, as well as special education laws and assist families in navigating the evaluation process.
