Walking with people through some of their most difficult times is an honor to me and a responsibility that I do not take lightly. I have worked with children, adolescents, families and adults. I specifically enjoy working with children and families. Being a kid is hard these days and so is being a parent. While I believe that parents can and do provide much of what their children need, there are definitely times that another person's perspective can be helpful.

I provide parent coaching, and have received training in treating pre and postpartum issues with new fathers.
I am a Certified Restoration Therapist, which guides my approach in working with clients of all ages and issues. Restoration Therapy seeks to provide opportunities for people to escape cycles of conflict that can easily turn them into their worst selves when painful feelings arise. Restoration therapists help you map what shape these conflict cycles take, and map a way out, so you can regulate those difficult emotions and stay on track. In working with me, you can expect to identify longstanding patterns of interaction that may hinder current relationships and begin to reshape those patterns into a more healthy and whole self.

As a parent, you may regularly share intense frustration, periods of hopelessness, and underlying desperation unsure of how to help your child.
I am particularly skilled working alongside pre-adolescents, adolescent, young adult females, and parents of teens, who feel stuck and in the trenches of family dynamics, significant relationships, life circumstances, and/or mental health conditions. Your teen may be desperately trying to find an outlet to channel their feelings. Are they overachievers pouring all their energy into school or sports? Does your teen feel lost, anxious, confused, or indecisive? Perhaps they bottle their anger, cut, or show you their rebellious side.
