Do you have a child or adolescent that is suffering from anxiety or depression? Transitions can be difficult and result in symptoms, stress and unhappiness for some youth. I work to help each person get through their challenges and find their strengths. Families can benefit from a therapist who helps them to process their feelings and experiences. Parents can feel overwelmed when their child is suffering.

When it becomes difficult to cope, therapy can provide a new path forward. Having a nonjudgmental space to explore, validate, and experience your feelings in a healthy way can help you manage anxiety, depression, and other life stressors. I would like to provide that space for you to process your emotions, develop new methods of coping, identify and clarify your goals and values.

My goal as a therapist is to help you prioritize yourself in a way that leads to growth and a life worth celebrating. Growth can be as straightforward as learning to cope with a difficult situation, or as complex as charting a brand new life for yourself. Together, we will work to uncover your unfulfilled needs, the related obstacles, and any thoughts and perceptions that may be holding you back from experiencing a more fulfilling life. Ultimately, my hope and the focus of our work together is to help you make meaningful changes that are good for you, and those around you.

We provide evidence-based CBT/Exposure Therapy for anxiety disorders, specializing in social anxiety, selective mutism, separation anxiety, panic disorder, & related issues. The goal is to live a valued life in the presence of anxiety and, to do this, we treat the anxious-avoidance cycle you may find yourself in. Anxious avoidance is when a person avoids something that makes them anxious (which is normal and expected). However, when avoidance interferes with your life and keeps you from living out your goals, that’s when avoidance (not anxiety) becomes problematic. We are specialists who can help you learn how to approach vs avoid.
