My passion and specialization is working with children and their families, which I have experience with in both school and private practice settings. Do you have children who are bullied at school or are the bully? Do you have children who are failing their classes or seem uncharacteristically anxious or depressed? Are you going through a separation with your partner and wonder how it is affecting your children? If you are, I can help. Other prevelent issues in my work with both adults and children include: grief and loss, substance abuse, anger management, family reunification, divorce, and romantic relationships.

In our work together I will use the therapeutic relationship as a window for change as well as using cognitive behavioral, mindfulness, play, and expressive art therapy techniques. I wil put specific techniques to use after getting to know each individual client, their unique style, needs, and concerns.

Whatever the issue is, I use my intuition to guide my clients through a process of self discovery, as well as assist them in exploring the possible steps they can take in order to to fulfill their own personal goals.
