***ACCEPTING NEW CLIENTS*** I believe that there is no "single" treatment that works best for everyone. I have found that the most effective therapy is when it is tailored to the unique needs of each client. We will spend time becoming acquainted with one another and arriving at a shared understanding of your treatment goals. My practice focuses on creating space in which transformation is possible and old patterns can shift into something that allows for growth and possibility. We will work on the issues that you bring to the table, and together, we will carve out a road map that will help lead you to a more authentic self.

*NOW OFFERING TELEHEALTH - I’M SORRY BUT MY CASELOAD IS FULL AT THIS TIME * A guiding principle in my work is the belief that the quality of the therapeutic relationship is of the utmost importance. Neuroscientific literature supports the curative powers of deep empathic attunement (limbic resonance) and the brain/body's ability to heal.. As such, in addition to attending to you with the same level of respectful presence that I would expect in a therapist, I use both cognitive/emotional and body/mind tools to assist you in your healing. I think you will find me warm, genuine, empathic,and knowledgeable.

Through my experience working with youth in various settings such as, schools, residential programs and hospitals, one thing has become most obvious: youth of all ages need a safe, accountable environment to explore all that has happened and is happening in their lives, how they are affected and how they engage with it and move forward. Beyond my work in these settings, I have personally felt and seen the apparent need within our communities. I collaborate with youth and families in digging deep to identify social, emotional, and behavioral needs, as well as, developing the strength to support and maintain well-being.
