Helping restore a sense of balance and self-worth to my client’s lives is my passion. My experience has spanned over 14 years, with a strong foundation in child and adolescent pathology. My philosophy is to work collaboratively in goal development and attainment, to highlight the connection among faulty thinking, feelings, and ineffective coping patterns and promote healthy changes. Through empowerment to challenge these factors, comes a renewed sense of confidence, strengths, and effective skills to manage life’s stressors and relationships.
My expertise in working with children, adolescents, adults, and families is specific to mood and anxiety disorders, self-harming behaviors, school refusal, ADHD, OCD, Bi-Polar, parent coaching, trauma, and life transitions. Primarily CBT, I use methods of DBT, ACT, mindfulness, and expressive modalities, dependent on the needs of each unique individual.
I am blessed to do what I love everyday. I believe the best indicator of long-term success is the relationship between client and therapist. Collaboration, humor, genuineness, and mutual-respect foster a sense of safety to explore vulnerabilities on the journey to wellness. I look forward to helping you navigate your journey to emotional wellbeing.
