Emotional or behavioral challenges during childhood and adolescence can be very disruptive to not only the child but the whole family. I provide therapy services during evenings and weekends so that my clients don't have to miss school and to accommodate parents' busy schedules. I have experience helping children and families develop effective coping skills quickly and get the balanced, happy life they deserve.

I specialize in working with youth experiencing all kinds of difficulties, including trauma-related symptoms, anxiety, depression, oppositional behaviors, concentration problems, and trouble managing anger. I also work with adolescents/young adults struggling to transition to adulthood. Many youth find that launching into independence can be very difficult and I can help with that process.

One area where I can be particularly helpful is parenting a difficult child. Parents can learn how to handle their child's problem behaviors with the right help! Strengthening family relationships is a passion of mine, and for many families it is a great need.
