Welcome! I am a Licensed Mental Health Counselor who specializes in working with children, adolescents and young adults. I am able to provide two distinct, but related services; counseling and educationally related evaluations. Within my counseling role, I enjoy working with children through young adults on overcoming life’s challenges. I specialize in addressing issues such as anxiety, depression, body image concerns, grief, low self-esteem, divorce and parenting difficulties. In addition, I believe in the importance of collaborating with parents and family to create a system of support around young people.
My approach is both strength-based and evidence-based. I believe in acknowledging and working from a place of personal strengths and I use therapeutic approaches that are supported by clinical research. Finding the right counselor "fit" is essential and I am happy to provide free phone consultations to answer any questions you may have.
The other service that I provide is in-depth assessment of struggling learners and/or children who may have ADHD, Autism or Learning Disabilities. I assess cognitive abilities, academic skills, social/emotional functioning, executive functioning skills and other factors that may get in the way of children reaching their full potential.
