I work to help adults, children and couples make adjustments in their lives so they are more comfortable and in control of their behaviors and emotions. I have a genuine desire to get to know my clients and understand the difficulties they are experiencing. My therapy combines psychodynamic and cognitive behavioral approaches. I have particular interests helping people who are dealing with issues of depression, anxiety, health concerns, relationship problems, parenting difficulties, substance abuse, ADHD or school performance. Along with work as a psychologist, I have worked as a special education teacher which enhances my understanding of special needs children.

I'm particularly passionate about helping children and young adults feel understood and seen (especially those who identify as LGBTQIA+), and supporting individuals and families through pregnancy and postpartum phases of life.
If you're looking for a therapist who leads with empathy, seeks to understand and validate your experiences, helps you explore many options available to feeling like your best self, and can do so with a little bit of humor and lots of humility, we would be a great match! I really enjoy working with children, adolescents, and adults who are struggling with things related to anxiety, ADHD, grief and loss, relationships, pregnancy and postpartum periods, transitions, schooling, interpersonal communication, and self-exploration.

I am a RPT-S providing Experiential Play Therapy to children 18mo-11yrs with parent education/support.
The most common feedback I get from clients is that they can tell that I love what I do. They are so right! I believe it is a strength, not a deficit, to reach out to someone for help and support. Whether it's acute trauma, behavioral issues, or adjustment to difficult life circumstances, being heard and supported in a therapeutic setting can make a world of difference. My approach with clients is to meet them where they are, determine where they want to be, and to be an empathic witness for them in their healing journey.
