I enjoy working with children and adults in a personalized approach tailored to each patient's unique situation. My theoretical background is rooted in cognitive behavioral therapy, family therapy, play therapy , and psychodynamic therapy, but I pull from many sources in creating a treatment plan. I enjoy tackling diagnostic puzzles and working closely with patients and families to get to the bottom of what causes disruption in someone's life. Most consider me direct and no nonsense. I trained in Exposure Response Prevention for OCD treatment in both children and adults and enjoy these treatment challenges.

Through talk and play , I help children express their feelings and assist parents in meeting their child's needs.
Working with children, youth and their families is a passion of mine. While all children experience challenges in life, some children have a more difficult time overcoming these challenges. I am a licensed psychologist specializing in work with children from infancy through adolescence on issues affecting social, emotional, and academic performance. As a child and adolescent psychologist, I help children understand their feelings and how to express their feelings in healthy ways. I work collaboratively with families to improve children's self-esteem, emotion regulation, and social skills with a treatment plan customized to each child.

**PLEASE CHECK BACK. I AM CURRENTLY FULL AND CANNOT ACCEPT NEW CLIENTS. THANK YOU.**When an atmosphere of trust and collaboration is created, healing can begin. My clients have shared with me that I am amicable and non-judgmental, warm hearted with a sense of humor and play . Within this space, clients who are learning to live with problems like a change in life, addiction or trauma can explore their life experiences, learn to use their current strengths and add new skills to move towards their goal. It takes time and patience, honesty and courage, plus support to look at one's self and stick with new thoughts and behaviors.

I am in the process of becoming a registered play therapist and specialize in working with children, adolescents, and young adults.
Hi there, welcome to my page! Here’s a bit about my approach to counseling: I am a highly relational individual and see the client-counselor relationship as the foundation to all meaningful therapy. I deeply believe that each one of us intrinsically possesses unique value and is deserving of love, respect, and the opportunity to evolve. I believe that my clients, both adults and children, are the experts on themselves. It is my intention to create a non-judgmental space and support my clients as they excavate through the layers that prevent them from accessing their natural intuition, and move in the direction of growth.

I believe in the power of creative interventions, so my work with children, teens, and young adults often harnesses the therapeutic power of play , sandtray, and art-based interventions.
My clients often are feeling stressed, overwhelmed, and anxious because of life changes and constant feelings of worry and overwhelm. The kids, teens, and young adults I work with often need to feel heard and set goals of better understanding their big emotions. A major part of this work is including parents and caregivers to provide tools and strategies that can help at home. My clients often have trouble expressing their deepest feelings and want to have better relationships with friends and family. Anxiety sometimes feels like it gets in the way of close relationships, but, together, we can discover new ways to reconnect.
