About

My professional training and experience has focused extensively on child, adolescent, and family therapy, as well as emerging adulthood (age 19-24). This includes working together to develop strategies, coping skills, new perspectives, and supportive therapy for youth dealing with challenges related to depression, anxiety, low self-esteem, rejection, anger/aggression, interpersonal conflict, planning for the future, social or academic pressures, and self-image/identity.
I have helped youth and families in schools, community mental health, an inpatient psychiatric unit, and a large hospital and healthcare system. I am very interested in family dynamics and working with young people to both provide support and help develop tools that empower positive change, and movement towards health.
I provide therapy for youth facing behavior challenges, depression, and anxiety. I am a consultant for questions about child development and parenting. And I support families with a child or teen dealing with a health issue. I have also contributed to diabetes research at Stanford University, investigating ways Type 1 diabetes impacts the developing brain.
