Kierkegaard said life wasn't a problem to be solved but a reality to be experienced. We will always experience joys and pain, strength and sorrow, and a little support can go a long way. As a therapist, I am not here to solve life's problems for you, but I am here to support you and your family while you experience the hard parts of life. I'm here to listen to and validate your world and help you develop skills or tools to cope with the tough times.
I work with children and teens who are struggling with grief, trauma, self-esteem, depression and anxiety and help those who want to improve coping skills and ADHD management skills. I also help parents and guardians of all family types learn and practice new parenting skills, and build stronger connections with their children.
It takes a lot of courage to reach out for help when we're struggling, or to continue our journey of personal growth. If you think I'm a good fit for you or your family, please reach out!
