Reaching out for support can be a difficult and vulnerable experience. My goal is to help you and your family find calm, connection, and joy again! My therapeutic approach is collaborative, interactive, and warm. Together we will highlight your strengths as parent, child, or teen while identifying areas that may benefit from change. I tailor treatment to your individual, child's, and/or family's needs and use a variety of therapeutic strategies customized to address underlying issues and help you and your family thrive.
I bring over 15 years experience working with children, teens, and their families and specialize in the treatment of anxiety, behavioral issues, parenting concerns, and infant/family mental health, including issues of attachment/bonding, school concerns, stress, and depression. I enjoy working with families of all backgrounds, beliefs, and perspectives!
The trust between patient and therapist is an essential component of meaningful and successful treatment. I provide sessions via tele-health to give flexibility and comfort to you while maintaining a productive space for healing. Please contact me to schedule a free 15-minute phone consultation to see if we are a good fit. I look forward to meeting you!
