I believe that most people, even young children , possess inner knowledge of how to solve their own problems. I view my role as a clinician who can help improve self-awareness, teach skills that bring an inner sense of peace and self-control, and assist in providing real world solutions to a multitude of mental health challenges that prevent an individual from functioning at their very best. In treating children and adolescents, their improvement often includes establishing a trusting connection not only with the client and parents but sometimes a team of supporters (i.e. teachers, PCP, and often psychiatrists).

Parents and children have been having disagreements since the beginning of time. It can be hard to understand what a child is going through, especially when you feel you’ve done everything you possibly can to make things better. The loss of control coupled with feelings ranging from hopelessness to anger can lead to strained and fractured family dynamics.

Like a butterfly emerging into life, a child requires nurturance, safety, and care. I believe in supporting child and adolescent emotional growth and developmental processes throughout the life cycle especially when healing from adversity is necessary. My approach is collaborative working closely with the parents, schools, and collaterals involved to enhance over all well-being in every capacity of the child 's environment. Stemming from a strength-based perspective, using play and expressive art therapies, CBT/DBT, and Somatic Experiencing as theoretical approaches have proven to provide the best outcomes in healing and growth.

A therapist since 2002 with experience working with children and adolescents aged 5-18, young adults, and adults.
*NEW CLIENTS ACCEPTED via TELEHEALTH* Ever feel like you have a way to do something, and though it does not work the way it seems like it should, you feel it “works for you?” Do you find that you have a way of behaving and struggle to break free from yourself? I find that humans act in patterns. We think about a problem and act in a way that is the most comfortable to us and tend to repeat these patterns regardless of the result. I work with people living with depression, anxiety, trauma, anger concerns, separation/loss/grief issues, and people coping with discrimination.

I specialize in children , adolescents, and adult women.
*New clients, please use email for fastest reply.* Therapy should begin with establishing a trusting and therapeutic relationship, in a relaxing environment, where clients of all ages will feel comfortable, safe & understood (my dog Taffy is my 'co-therapist'!). Although everyone struggles at times during our lives, most of us still reeling from the past few years alone. I believe ALL people have hidden strengths (yes, you too!) that they can use and build upon, while also learning how their past history may still effect their thoughts, actions, and self esteem. Therapy is about insight, encouragement, support, and progress.

After more than ten years of work with traumatized children and adolescents in the state's child welfare system and now currently working in the adoption and foster care community, I have always felt a strong connection to families and and have worked hard to demonstrate my cultural competency.
The ideal client who I work with therapeutically is motivated and desires change. This client values the therapeutic relationship while also working toward success quickly. This client should be excited, even if a little bit anxious, about gaining valuable insight into themselves and their place in their life. As far as couples/marriage counseling is concerned, couples should be motivated to stay together and not simply stopping off at therapy before divorce. Couples should be willing to work hard and look at themselves as individuals as well as a family.
