About

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.
My specialties are disruptive behaviors in children, adolescents, and adults that stem from ADHD, autism spectrum disorders, anxiety, OCD, depression, and family strife. Sorting out what leads to problem behaviors fascinates me.
As a seasoned professional, I draw from vast professional and personal experiences in developing an understanding of all the variables impacting life, function, and dysfunction. No one wants to struggle...I know folks are doing the best they can. Hopefully, I can offer some helpful guidance and redirection.
