I believe we are all capable of learning new skills and new ways of approaching our relationships and our stressors so that we can behave and communicate more effectively.
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.

I specialize in the treatment of children and adults with attachment disruptions, anxiety, depression, grief, traumatic experiences, and neurocognitive disruptions including learning disorders , Sensory Processing Disorder, ADHD, and Autism.
That's it! You've had enough!! Life has dealt you something unlivable and you need help. You can't imagine it being easier, different. For a second, try and imagine someone offering support, guidance, and validation to help you process and overcome those difficult moments. Together we can help ease the tension, reduce the stress, change the helplessness, and move toward a more livable existence. With specialty training I help clients achieve this through various therapy tools, like EMDR, talk therapy, music, Play Therapy and expressive art therapy.

Addressing those causes could mean learning to recognize errors in your thinking, build healthier communication skills, or developing coping skills to get you through especially hard moments.
What does it mean to "take care of your mental health?" It's easier to tell when you aren't taking care of it: chronic stress, exhaustion, worry, and panic are all signs your mental health is suffering. If untreated, you could start having nightmares, poor health, trouble in your relationships, and difficulty staying on top of work or school. There are many things that can lead to mental health struggles, like a too-busy schedule, a chronic illness or someone else's troubles, a major life transition, or a death of someone close to you. Or, it could seem to come out of the blue, caused by nothing at all.

Change will not come if we wait for some other person or some other time. We are the ones we’ve been waiting for. We are the change that we seek.” -Barack Obama. My ideal client is one that is motivated to helping themselves. A client ready to listen, be accountable, and set realistic goals. A client who is seeking support to navigate life’s challenges! The goal is to use past traumas and/or situations as a learning tool and a means of reflection, while still striving to move forward.

Learning to manage your emotions, whether anxiousness, sadness, anger or stress, is the key to health, happiness and relationship contentment.
Most of my clients seek therapy because they feel overwhelmed or stuck and want help with anxiety, stress management, depression, anger management or healthy relationships. Every client and couple I work with has their own unique story to share. I take into account the impact of life experiences on one's understanding of themselves and their relationships, and help guide them through the process of growth and change. I'm especially passionate about helping clients increase their ability to manage and regulate emotions so they can experience greater success at home, work, school and in their community.

My training has been quite diverse thus I enjoy working with individuals of all ages and needs. My ideal client is an individual who understands the need to seek help or guidance and is willing to work with me on these concerns. I have over 18 years of clinical experience and enjoy working with "systems" (e.g., schools, families, support systems). I prioritize consultation with schools when addressing school-based behaviors such as underachievement, learning disabilities, and bullying concerns. I take a "strength-based" approach, always attempting to work within the clients talents and building from that point forward.

Are you feeling overwhelmed, anxious, and depressed? You may be tired from trying to give everyone your best and still feel like you aren't enough. I believe that healing occurs when the mind, body, and spirit are acknowledged, nurtured, and allowed the freedom to fully transform. If we aren't living our life intentionally we unknowingly block the best versions of ourselves from emerging. Do you become fearful of success, self-sabotage growth, and yet continue to seek deeper meaning and purpose in your life? If this message resonates with you it's time to do something different! Ask yourself - What's the best that can happen?

I believe in a rapport-based approach to therapy: mainly authenticity in communication and interpersonal development of relationships. I aim to remove stigmas and depathologize issues, focusing on outcomes over symptoms. My philosophy is that people are often unaware of their core values, or stressors have made them seem far too distant. When building acceptance around the reality of problems facing families, and focusing on objectives that improve wellness, change can occur. The behavioral interventions, objectivity, and support found in the therapeutic relationship help lead individuals and families to their goals.

How effective is treatment for learning disabilities?

When initiated early and tailored to a child’s specific needs, learning disability treatment can be quite effective at helping a child cope with their disability, though its exact efficacy may depend on the severity of symptoms and whether comorbid disorders exist. Less is known about treatment initiated in adulthood, but it is certainly possible that an adult with a learning disability will see some improvement—or at the very least, identify workarounds and accommodations that could make symptoms less burdensome in day-to-day life.

When should someone seek treatment for learning disabilities?

It’s best to seek treatment as early as possible. Because learning disabilities often go unnoticed until a child starts school, or even until they’re a few years along, regular check-ins with teachers and doctors can help parents determine whether children are meeting milestones and keeping up with peers or whether an evaluation for learning disabilities may be warranted. And although earlier is always better, it’s never too late to be evaluated for learning disabilities and to seek treatment.

What happens if learning disabilities are left untreated?

Undiagnosed and untreated learning disabilities can be a source of significant frustration and shame for a child, who may feel that their challenges stem from a lack of intelligence or willpower. Such feelings can trigger low self-esteem, depression, or anxiety, which may push a child toward risky behaviors, including substance use. In adulthood, untreated learning disabilities can interfere with career success, and lingering feelings of self-doubt and shame can negatively affect someone’s mental health.

Are there medications for learning disabilities?

Currently, there are no medications designed to treat specific learning disabilities such as dysgraphia or dyscalculia. However, someone with a learning disability may be prescribed medication for a comorbid condition, such as anxiety, depression, or ADHD, which may have positive downstream effects on their learning disability; for example, a child with both ADHD and dyslexia may find that they’re better able to focus on their reading exercises after being prescribed a stimulant medication.
