I believe all children deserve to be part of a community where they can learn and grow. Over the past decade, I've worked in a variety of educational settings to support students with unique learning needs. I rely on my background and experience to assist families and schools in supporting children who are struggling in school. I've seen first-hand the growth children are able to make with the right supports and services in place. I use a strength-based, child-centered approach toward academic, social-emotional and behavioral success.

I use relational and psychodynamic frameworks, as well as strength-based approaches.
Navigating life's circumstances and challenges can take up a lot of space in our lives. Maybe you are looking for more spaciousness, more time for yourself, or an extra ear to listen to and fully "get" you. Or perhaps anxiety or depression has become a constant presence, and you desire a change and want more connection. Sharing our experiences with others provides an opportunity to feel understood. In a therapeutic relationship, we explore patterns and coping strategies to better form a picture of how we operate in the world. It can help us identify what is and isn't working towards getting your needs met more fully.

As a licensed clinical psychologist, I enjoy working with adults and couples from diverse backgrounds who seek to improve the quality of their lives. Is there a place you find yourself stuck? Have you tried all you can and still find yourself in emotional pain? Do you have some insight into what may be happening, but want to seek professional support to grow and thrive? Whether you are familiar with counseling or not, each person's therapeutic journey is unique. Some people come with a specific goal in mind and others prefer a longer supportive therapy, traversing the many layers and aspects of their life.

Life can resemble an ocean. Distress may seem like waves coming ashore, back and forth, sometimes so large they knock us off balance. In one's pursuit of discovering calm waters, the unforeseen tides of life can make peace and relief difficult to grasp. The silver lining is that you don't have to navigate these waters alone. Whether your goal is to heal, process grief and loss, repair a relationship, navigate difficult life transitions, better manage your emotions, address unprocessed trauma, unpack racial and cultural life factors, experience relief from depression and anxiety or to just rediscover YOU, hope is here for you!

When it's an uphill battle to manage anxiety, low self-worth or impulsive self-sabotaging habits, it’s probably time to get some help. Life doesn't need to feel so hard. I facilitate the wisdom and drive to heal already inside you. It's normal to feel transformation may be out of reach. But I have helped many people thrive. Impulses, emotional overwhelm and habits often get "updated." It's common to feel more ease, self-accepting and empowered to make key changes.
