Often children communicate through play, so I meet them at their level and engage in their communication style through play-based activities.
When little people are overwhelmed by BIG feelings it is our job to share our calm, not join their chaos. -L.R. Knost. For many kids and teens, even mentioning beginning counseling can feel scary and overwhelming, being asked to share their deepest thoughts and feelings and behavioral challenges with a complete stranger. I recognize this challenge and approach my sessions with patience and understanding. Just as every child and their reasons for beginning this process are unique and diverse, so is my treatment style. I focus on developing coping skills, frustration management, and processing and exploring emotions and experiences.

If this resonates with you & your child, my goal will be to help you to better manage these really tough behaviors & help you both grow to enjoy one another's company more fully through the use of PCIT (Parent Child Interaction Therapy) and/or CPP (Child Parent Psychotherapy).
"It's not selfish to love yourself, take care of yourself, & to make your Happiness a priority. It's necessary." So often we put off the pursuit of therapy because of our busy schedules. If you, you & your partner and/or you & your child know that the time has come to care for yourselves, I'd be happy to support your doing so while working around school/work schedules, rush hour traffic, and after school activities. Like all of us, life and how I approach it shifted when the pandemic occurred. One positive takeaway for me has been being able to be a part of life-changing therapy in a way I hadn’t yet experienced, Telehealth.

I have been working to strengthen children, adults, and families for over twenty years.
We all find ourselves "stuck" sometimes, thinking the same thoughts, repeating the same behaviors while hoping for a different outcome. I am here to help you achieve the change you desire. I believe counseling is a collaborative process where you will be able to express your feelings, process core issues, and make a plan for the future. I provide a comfortable environment with an approach that is warm, non-judgmental, and conversational.

Life can be so hard. It shouldn't be, but it is. Our current culture breeds depression, anxiety, ADHD, addiction, and so much more. We weren't meant to live this way and to confront the constant stream of stressors we face on a daily basis. 40+ hour work weeks, struggling to make ends meet, supporting others while we struggle to support ourselves, unexpected life events, financial instability, always reaching and striving for the next benchmark, promotion, or grade. The list goes on and on and it often feels overwhelming and impossible. Let's get you to a place where you can better navigate all this chaos and be able to breathe!

I am so glad you are here, welcome. Life asks us to transition and change all the time. That could be going to college, graduating, a new job, loss and grief, new relationships or a new phase of life, such as motherhood. Change brings up worries, sadness and overwhelm and can leave us feeling alone. My goal is to offer you some hope, support and transformation in whatever life transition you are in.

You seem to have it all figured out but on the inside you are coming apart. It's a relentless cycle of stress and anxiety, where every day feels like a marathon, and you're constantly playing catch-up. Sleep eludes you, appetite vanishes, and the things you used to love no longer bring joy. It's overwhelming, especially when you're also trying to find your place in the world. You deserve more than this endless cycle. You deserve a life filled with joy, where sleep comes easy, you have plenty of energy, and you feel in control. Or perhaps, a life that includes brunch and bougie lattes if that's more your style.

I specialize in working with children (as young as 2 years old), adolescents, young adults, and families. Even when I am working individually with a child, I involve parents in every session so that the whole family learns new skills and communication patterns. As a parent myself, I understand that when our children are suffering, we suffer. I seek to support the entire family on their path toward change and better health. We often hire coaches or tutors to help our children develop in sports or academics. I consider myself an emotion coach, here to help children and parents navigate their emotional worlds and achieve their goals.

Is your child or teen struggling with anxiety, depression, or behavioral challenges? As a parent, do you often struggle with self-doubt, guilt, or concern for your child's well-being? Is your family experiencing a loss of identity, grappling with the behaviors of a family member, or finding it hard to adjust to new circumstances? Navigating family and child issues can be daunting, especially in a society where seeking help can still carry stigma. But, avoiding these concerns can amplify feelings of guilt, shame, and unease. My passion lies in fostering personal and collective growth for individuals and families alike.
