About

My primary experience is working with children and adolescents and their families in coping with life's stressors, more significant mental health symptoms, and developing more effective coping styles and communication patterns. In treatment, it is my goal to work alongside your child and you to find resources and coping skills to handle overwhelming experiences which are impacting you and your child's functioning. My dog Sammy, a therapy dog, is present during most sessions and can help support children suffering from anxiety around coming to therapy and providing a safe place to process difficult emotions.
I practice from models to fit individual and family needs. I provide treatment in Narrative and Solution Focused methods. I work with the family to address self-harm, anxiety, depression and behavioral problems presenting in children and adolescents.
I currently also work within school districts with IEP's supporting children in accessing their education. I also can support with helping families work toward reunification, Family Court Systems and custody issues.
