About

Current Waitlist. These are unprecedented times, full of stress, anxiety, and uncertainty. Creative approaches to mental health treatment can effectively engage children and teens, as well as adults, in this important work. I believe in customizing therapy to each unique individual and family, to bring about the shared discovery of methods that will best suit their needs and support the achievement of their personal goals. Within a therapeutic partnership, my clients build strength and skills for identifying, tolerating, expressing, and addressing what words alone often fail to, to better manage through all of life's challenges.
Trauma-informed therapy encourages exploration of the connections between our experiences and the ways in which we come to automate reactions or repeat patterns of behavior; understanding the basic functions of behavior and addressing root causes are essential to reducing reactivity, and building skills for coping with and reducing symptoms in the long term.
Need help supporting your child's growth and managing your own reactivity? Want to expand and strengthen your coping resources, confidence, and self-esteem? Looking for a new approach that might best support your growth at this time, or more effectively engage your child in therapy? Consultation can help you decide on who and what approach may best fit!
