About

Are you feeling stuck, defeated, and struggling to manage your or your child's emotions? It can be hard just to make it through the day. I know life is really hard and we are all facing challenging times. Taking that first step to ask for help can be difficult, you are not alone. I think everyone would be surprised at actually how many of us need and can use a little extra support, whether it be for yourself or your child. You don't have to continue to feel this way.
I work with individuals that struggle with anxiety, depression, trauma, grief and other challenges that arise through out life. I work with children and adults. I use a variety of evidence based practices. I believe my experience of working across the lifespan is helpful in understanding how different paths impact and shape who we are and who become.
Whatever it is that has brought you here, you don't have to do it alone.  My hope is that our work together can foster change, healing and growth.  I look forward to meeting you.  Please feel free to call or email me to set up a free consultation.
