I specialize in working with children, adolescents, and families who are struggling with a variety of issues, particularly related to trauma, anxiety, and loss. In my work, I focus on listening to the unique story of every child, whether the child communicates through words, play, art, or behaviors. Because I value the intrinsic insight and wisdom that parents often have about their child, I work collaboratively with parents to best support their child. My therapeutic approach is relational, with an emphasis on solving problems directly. I utilize evidence-based interventions focused on insight, the mind-body connection, and strengthening resiliencies.

Everyone deserves to be accepted, appreciated and acknowledged. When stress overcomes we often forgot how deserving we are of these needs. That's why it is my mission to supply a safe space for your child/teen to reconnect in expanding their self-worth and coping skills. Since everyone is unique, I adapt my approach to meet their needs, while integrating evidenced based practices along with humor, art, and play.

I have always had a heart for children, especially those who are struggling. I believe that the mental health of children is of utmost importance as the experiences they have at a young age shape who they become as teenagers and, ultimately, adults. While counseling can be a serious matter for children, I believe in the importance of providing relaxed and enjoyable child-focused sessions. My therapy is centered around fun, play-based activities that help foster an environment which feels safe, inviting, and engaging for children.

As a parent with a struggling child, you often wonder what you can do to make them feel better. It seems like everything you have tried isn’t working. It can be a bit overwhelming to find outside resources because you want to make sure you find someone that can connect with your child. How would it feel to know that they will ask for help when they need it? I have personal experience with ADHD, anxiety, and depression, which gives me a unique perspective during the counseling experience. I will guide your child by developing healthy perceptions of themselves and the ability to strengthen their relationships.

The life of the mind is challenging and complicated, but it should not be an impossible nightmare. The daily struggles we face, relationships, inner self, tasks, education et cetera are real. Those things can weigh one down, but they should not be able to crush. Therapy is not magic, it is not a promise of a life free of challenges. However, it is a promise of companionship. It is the offer to walk with you through those dark, shameful, and sometimes forgotten places in your mind and soul. it is the process of persuading you to change direction. It is the skill needed to gently guide and focus. So, let’s talk.

When is the last time someone asked the question, “how are you?” but *really* asked you? With so many demands on our time and attention, it is easy to feel lost in a never-ending to do list where your personal needs and desires are towards the very bottom. When you think of where you are, you find yourself constantly comparing your life to those around you and where you are never feels like enough. You’ve tried sharing your feelings with friends and it somehow turns into a talk about their issues, leaving you feeling mostly unheard. The cycle of all give and no take ends here. It's time for the focus to just be on you.
