About

I specialize in child therapy, individual therapy, and relationship counseling. I work with children and adults to realize goals that will support healthy behavioral patterns, and I work with family systems to promote interconnectedness. I offer a variety of tools that will support you to develop effective emotional regulation tools, communication skills, and to help you to recognize your inner strengths. Every person is unique, and therefore therapy should be as well. We can explore what is going on in your life right now so you can build resiliency in the face of challenges.
If you are struggling with your emotional or mental health, or if you are concerned with the mental health of your child, I am here for you. My treatment plans are designed with you and your family in mind, because there is no "one size fits all" in therapy.
I believe in the power of healthy relationships. Without them, we can't thrive as individuals. I work with clients to strengthen the relationships they have - with themselves and with others - in order to create an environment that will foster growth and happiness.
