About

I strive to create a safe, non-judgmental, and affirming space for all children and adolescents. I come to every session with a warm and empathetic energy, always inviting them to come as they are. I do this through empathetic listening, validation, and support. I tailor the therapeutic work based on the strengths and needs of the child/adolescent I am supporting, and I bring a client-centered and strengths-based approach to each therapeutic relationship. I have experience in working with children/adolescents who struggle with anxiety and depression and need support in coping with daily stressors and transitions.
I like to incorporate tools such as meditation, mindfulness, and gratitude into my practice. I also like to incorporate components of cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Supportive Therapy and Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT). I am also only offering teletherapy to ages 8-18.
I am a firm believer that all children/adolescents could benefit from therapy. No matter the reason, having a safe space to explore, process, and cope with life’s experiences and the emotions that are tied to them is helpful in creating a healthy and balance life. I look forward in working with your child/adolescent!
