As a child and family therapist, my goal is to help families develop awareness around how problem behaviors fulfill functional purposes for their children and guide the child in developing healthier behaviors. I work with all members of the child's system through parent meetings; individual child counseling; family therapy; and collaborations with all willing caregivers, teachers, and other service providers involved with the child (e.g., school social workers, psychiatrists, pediatricians, other therapists, etc.).

I specialize in early childhood intervention with children ages 2-17 facing behavioral issues, ADHD, depression, anxiety, trauma, grief and loss, divorce and separation, and reunification. Because families are diverse and unique, I use play therapy, CBT, DBT, and family systems approaches to develop a customized treatment plan for the child and family.

I also have experience working with court-involved cases and provide reunification services through a personalized approach for parents who are estranged or separated from their children. I am passionate about working with children and families from diverse backgrounds and hope to create change within the family through empathy, compassion, and authenticity.
