Announcement icon I am currently offering teletherapy sessions through a HIPPA compliant platform! Contact me for more details!
Life may take us to unexpected places and challenging times, but why go through them alone? Together we can find the best possible solution to whatever you or your family is dealing with. My main goal in therapy sessions is to take your therapeutic journey at the pace that you want to go. I primarily work with children, adolescents, young adults and families and offer individual and family counseling. I am trained in sand tray therapy as well. Through empathy and support I can give you the tools to navigate through these challenges in a positive and healthy way.
My specialty areas include issues related to school refusal, bullying, stress, anxiety, depression, grief, relationship difficulties, and self esteem. My treatment goals focus on the effects of stress and emotional issues on the family unit. I take an eclectic approach, and will customize my therapeutic approach to suit the needs of the client and family.
If the time is now for you to take the next step, it would be a pleasure to join you through this journey. Together we can find the relief that you or your child needs, what happiness looks like for you and the necessary goals to get you there. Visit my website for more information and please contact me for a free 10-minute phone consultation!
