I also conduct psychological, neuropsychological, and psychoeducational assessments for children , adolescents, and adults.
Psychotherapy can be very helpful to many people who find life more difficult than they would like it to be. Starting psychotherapy is not easy and I will help you navigate appropriate treatment choices. When you come in, I will listen carefully to what you are going through. It is important for me that you feel safe and respected. Together we will try to understand your challenges and begin to make helpful changes. You will not be labeled. We will figure out the goals of treatment and work towards your goals at your own pace.

I am a Registered Play Therapist, and my work with children involves the use of play therapy, where children communicate their wants, needs, and worries through toys and play.
Do you critique yourself often, replay conversations over and over, or think of all the "what ifs"? If so, you may benefit from therapy services. I work with children ages 6+, adolescents, and adults dealing with anxiety, depression, and life changes that are difficult to navigate. I help clients learn how to manage stress and develop insightful decision making skills. I also help clients develop healthy communication skills to increase assertiveness, confidence, and deeper connections with others. Therapy can also help with identifying negative self-talk and coping skills that may be doing more harm than good.
