I provide a positive and supportive approach to helping children, adolescents, adults and families who are navigating a variety of emotional or transitional challenges, including anxiety, mood disorders, school issues, family conflict and other sources of stress or disruption that may affect daily functioning or emotional well-being. I apply a person-centered and strength-based approach which involves respecting and encouraging a client's own goals and perspectives. I also work closely with parents to help identify practical and personalized strategies and interventions to address the many challenges that come with raising children and teenagers.

I believe in providing a safe space in which to process and explore emotions, as well as develop practical and effective coping skills and strategies that result in better relationships and improved confidence.

For those who are interested, I provide animal-assisted therapy using my dog and rabbit in the therapy session. In addition, I am also certified in Equine Assisted Psychotherapy (therapy with horses) and can provide this service through a local barn. Please email or call for a free phone consultation.
