Announcement icon I am wearing a mask in all sessions. I do not require clients to wear a mask in session, but please wear a mask in the waiting room.
Our paths can often have obstacles but I am here to travel with you. In traditional therapy, I utilize CBT and Solutions Focused modalities to work though anxiety and depression as well as grief and loss. I have many years of experience working with behavior modification, special education, and parent coaching. I am able to facilitate communication with schools for 504 plan and IEP formation. I have worked with many types of families to navigate through life transitions, behavior and emotional disorders, as well as understanding and increasing empathy with ADHD, autism spectrum disorder and obsessive compulsive disorder.
Sometimes words are hard to find, which is why I also offer art therapy. As a trained art therapist, I can guide you through the creative process to increase insight, develop coping skills, improve self esteem, work through traumatic experiences, and find joy. I believe in a "no mistakes" philosophy of art making and no art experience is necessary.
Taking the first step is often the most difficult but I am honored to be considered as you begin your journey. Call today to start on the path to growth and health.
