My specialty areas include children and adolescents, young adults, families and parent coaching.
People often reach a decision to begin psychotherapy because they feel that they have been struggling with or trying to ignore some behavioral or emotional difficulty and have reached a point where they want this to change. Such difficulties begin to affect other parts of one’s physical or emotional life, thought patterns, relationships, and work. Often the consequences of such struggles coupled with ineffective coping strategies, leads one to feel helpless and hopeless. This is a critical point where change is needed.

Life is unpredictable and often throws trials that we weren’t expecting. To combat this I work with children, teens and adults to heal and grow. Whether it is dealing with sadness, anxiety, life transitions or parenting concerns, everyone deserves someone to talk to. Many times when we leave these problems unresolved they compound and hurt other areas of life.

In life there is pain. Painful experiences growing up that stay inside and manifest in our everyday behavior and internal struggles. In my work, whether the person is a child, teen, young adult, parent, or woman, I aim to provide a space of compassion and safety from which to understand the world around us (relationships, school, work, friendships) and the internal world within us (thoughts, emotions, pain, discomfort). The goal in my work is to help you/your child get in touch with, tune in, and understand themselves; in particular thoughts and feelings.
