"I enjoy collaborating with families to help them move through difficult challenges with intention and compassion. I frequently work with neurodevelopmental and life-adjustment challenges. This includes executive functioning issues, like ADHD, moodiness and depression, or anxiety due to high academic pressure, life stress, or divorce. I also work extensively with technology-related issues: healthy-mind balance, boundary setting, as well as mindfulness practices for relaxation and expanding frustration tolerance."
