About

Is your preschooler running your household? Has your teenager been pushing you to the edge? There are many different theories on how to manage unwanted behaviors in children, and help your struggling teen. Some of these theories can leave parents with more questions than answers. You might ask yourself, "Does my child need more attention, or am I giving too much? Are my expectations of my teenager too high, or too low? If I ask for help, does that make me a good parent, or an incompetent one?" I specialize in working with children, adolescents, and their families, and I can help you find answers.
I am trained in evidence-based interventions, such as Parent-Child Interaction Therapy (PCIT), and Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy. I have worked with individuals and families since 2013 in a variety of settings. I have personal and professional experience working with diagnoses such as Autism, ADHD, OCD, ODD, Depression, and Anxiety.
I believe that therapy is about accepting, supporting, and empowering clients of all ages. Whether you are a frustrated parent, or a struggling individual, you are not alone. I provide a safe, non-judgmental environment, where you can find answers, and your healing can begin.
