Being a child in today’s changing world is not easy, and parenting our children through the struggles they are facing can make us feel inadequate, helpless, and unsure. How do we support our children navigating through anxiety, depression, school issues, troubles with peers, grief and loss...all of this amidst a global pandemic? Sometimes, kids and families need extra support, and there is no shame in seeking support and help for our kids as they journey through life. Quite the opposite...doing so can provide them with the tools and coping skills they need to in order to tackle whatever they are experiencing, now and in the future.

The human brain is a fascinating place, and if a person is always going to be there, why not make it a safe place? Growing up, I've always wanted to be on the front line to help children and families. I continue to gain the trust of youth and families to enable them to realize their potential. I consider it the greatest opportunity to be helping children/adolescents navigate through a difficult situation and to positively impact their circumstances. I have earned my Bachelors and Masters in Social Work and have chosen to take the clinical route.
