I specialize in working with children and teens with the support of their families.
Navigating childhood and adolescence can be hard enough for an individual, but it's also tough on parents. There are no manuals that come with being a parent. When one person in the family is struggling, the entire family system struggles. I work with children, teens, and their caregivers on finding the tools to navigate through difficult issues. I am a clinician who is experienced to help with anxiety, depression, ADHD, Autism Spectrum Disorder, school issues, behavioral challenges, suicidal ideation/self-harm, social challenges, and other mood-related concerns. I believe if the child is thriving, then the family system thrives.

Attempting to raise children and teenagers in this world is tough. At times, it feels like you're in a constant battle. Their mental health worries you, but you fear you're saying or doing the wrong thing. Nothing seems to be working, and you don’t know what else to do. Or maybe you’re a young adult/college student trying to figure out who you are and what your place is in this world. You don’t know how to be an “adult”, and that leaves you feeling anxious and overwhelmed. I am passionate about walking beside you in that journey.

Many of the children and adolescents I work with are struggling with feelings of depression, anxiety, anger issues, family relationships, low self-esteem, peer/friendships issues, body images concerns, and challenges related to disruptive behavior and inattention.
Each day it seems that life presents a new challenge, often causing us to question certain decisions that we have made or to consider new paths that we would like to explore. My goal is to gain a clear picture of each individual's needs, explore new and more effective ways of problem solving, and help each individual develop greater insight and growth. I believe the relational component of therapy is essential and serves at the foundation for establishing trust, compassion, empathy, and respect. I have expertise in working with individuals of all ages: children, adolescents, adults and families.

Are worried about their child's safety at home and at school. Are struggling to parent a child with mood or anxiety symptoms that cannot be managed with traditional outpatient care. Are dealing with school avoidance or having difficulty getting out of the house. Have a treatment team that has recommended a high level of care or doesn’t know what to do next.

Hi! My name is Billy. Are you struggling with depression, anxiety, substance abuse, stress, anger...or possibly all five? These issues are not uncommon and can be debilitating, especially when guilt or shame are added to the mix. But you can kick them all to the curb. All it takes is a willingness to change your perspectives. I've worked with thousands of clients (adults and children) who struggle with self-defeating beliefs that zap the joy out of life. And I've found that Hope and Purpose, along with healthy doses of Motivation and Creativity, crush inner demons.
