"Challenges are what make life interesting; overcoming them is what makes life meaningful." (Joshua Marine) I'm a child, adolescent, young adult and family therapist. I have received specialized training in the areas of child and adolescent counseling, family counseling, parenting strategies, divorce issues, anxiety disorders, anger management, mood disorders, ADHD counseling, stress management, and play therapy (and more).

Most of my clients present with a combination of symptoms. Sometimes my clients are looking for support and sometimes they are searching for solutions and change. I tailor treatment to the specific needs of each client. I use research-based strategies to meet the needs of the individual or family in a safe, confidential setting.

My qualifications combine strong family values with excellent clinical skills that are both child and parent friendly. Call me today to discuss how counseling can help you, your child, and/or family.
