I believe that through self-acceptance change is possible. I work with individuals to discover resilience and perseverance by working through barriers and building strength in their self-awareness along the way. I work with adolescents and adults struggling to manage daily life activities, navigate healthy relationships, improve self-worth, and with those who may be struggling to cope with experiences related to trauma. I incorporate mindfulness with CBT, behavioral, ACT, and solution-focused techniques.
In addition to individual therapy, I specialize in parent guidance and support. With 9yrs experience as a parent coach and 10 years experience as a child care provider, I work with parents of varying dynamics to better understand their child(ren)’s development, and learn how to more effectively engage when addressing challenges related to behavior
I currently have weekday, evening availability with teletherapy/phone sessions as an option. Especially during this difficult time navigating the COVID-19 virus and social distancing, if you find yourself struggling in anyway, please reach out for a free initial consultation. Nothing changes if nothing changes. Let’s work together to take the first step.
