I understand the anxiety and stresses that life can bring, especially negativing adjustments and change. Through support, there can be profound healing & growth. Navigating childhood, parenting, or the postpartum journey with support can make the greatest impact, knowing you are not alone. I believe individuals need to feel heard, understood, and supported to find healing. I am passionate about helping children, adolescents, and adults find their voice through play and believe change can happen when we feel heard, cared for, and understood.

I work with children, teenagers, and adults with a variety of struggles including autism, ADHD, attachment, trauma, anxiety depression, PTSD, and more.
Sometimes we need help creating a safe space where we can be open and honest while we make sense of an event we want to resolve or our lives overall. Sometimes we need help to heal and someone to simply hear our story. A story filled with our experiences in the world and shaped by perceptions that are human-naturally distorted and flawed. People begin therapy for various reasons, yet wanting change is universal and desiring authenticity is the heart of this path. It is not about being happy, better, fixed. You are not broken. Healing reveals your authenticity and allows you to become... it feels like peace, bravery and truth.

Is your child or teen getting on your last nerve? Are they defiant, angry, sad or withdrawn? Changes in the family structure, through a breakup, divorce, or death of a family member, often create confusion and unexpressed feelings in kids. Financial worries, relocating, peer pressure, violence, and other stressors at school and in the neighborhood, can lead to behavioral problems. Your child might have stopped opening up to you because they didn't want to worry you, or fear they'd be in trouble. I understand. I specialize in helping school-age children, teens, and their parents through challenging times.

All humans have strengths and develop strategies for coping with life's unique challenges and stressors. Sometimes the strategies we come up with are helpful and sometimes they do more to interfere with life than help. If you believe you or your child are experiencing difficulties coping with or adjusting to life's stressors that are interfering with school or work, peer and family relationships, or overall quality of life, then therapy may be a helpful next step.
