With over 15 years of clinical experience in private practice, I have treated both children and adults for a wide range of issues including: oppositional behavior, family conflict, aggressive acting-out, social problems, bullying, phobias, addictions, separation anxiety, high-conflict divorces, mood disorders, suicide prevention, and high functioning autism.
Are you having trouble finding help for your child or teen? Is your teenager difficult-to-reach? Oppositional? Is your child out-of-control? Resistant to therapy? Working with challenging kids is a passion of mine! Give me the opportunity to connect with your son or daughter, and then equip you as parents with the skills you need to bring order to your home and rebuild your family relationships. Your child or teen will discover an environment here that is safe, productive, and often quite fun!

I work very well with clients who struggle with managing stress, anxiety, depression, self-esteem or relationship issues. Common examples of issues that these clients face are trouble setting boundaries, feeling overwhelmed, relationship issues, lack of self-esteem or difficulty managing their emotions. These clients are hoping to increase their coping skills in these areas and want resources to assist in navigating their symptoms or need a safe and nonjudgmental space to talk things through. Evaluating all aspects of life through a collaborative relationship, we can work to decide how my client can live a thriving, healthy life.

Life can be complex and ever changing bringing us moments that impact our human experience. These human experiences can be anywhere between being joyful, beautiful, challenging, mediocre, and overwhelming. Counseling is a unique process that can help you find meaning within these experiences and give you a space where your story is heard. As a trauma-informed counselor, I work to create a safe and affirming atmosphere where clients feel understood and fully accepted for who they are. I believe that an authentic and empathic therapeutic relationship is one of the most crucial attributes to healing and growth.

The ideal patient is one who is one in pursuit of growth and desire to become more fully themselves. A willingness to discover and develop awareness of yourself is fundamental to our therapeutic work. As we honestly, kindly, and compassionately explore and learn about those inner processes, we will bring healing and conscious changes to the present dynamics and behaviors which have led to seek out supports. As we move closer to closure with a positive outcome, we will incorporate changes in how we relate to Self and to others, and set forth to live a more authentic and fulfilling life.

Do you ever feel overwhelmed, not knowing how to feel better? If you're someone who has had a life-changing experience it can seem like the floor is crumbling beneath your feet. You feel like everything is uncertain and as if everyone would judge you if they knew how you really felt or what was going on. You feel alone, frustrated, and confused - stuck and wishing you knew how to move forward.

Behavior is the universal language for kids, what is your child trying to tell you? Maybe you've noticed a stomachache happening every morning this week, they're more riled up at night & putting off bedtime, or lashing out when you remind them to complete a simple task. They might be seeking more reassurance & asking a lot of “what if” questions, or isolating & withdrawing from friends. You're taking on more to avoid a meltdown, but nothing's working. You’re doing the best you can, yet you feel it’s not enough, & parenting is starting to feel draining.. and just imagine how it feels like for them.

We all want to find some way to love ourselves and to engage in meaningful, healthy relationships. These desires can be elusive when we have histories of trauma, neglect, and abuse. Many of my clients have trauma histories in childhood and qualify for diagnoses that originate in trauma, including PTSD, Complex PTSD, Borderline Personality Disorder, and/or Dissociative Disorders. Trauma that comes from ongoing abuse in childhood impacts many aspects of life, including the way you see yourself, your ability to trust others, and even your ability to move forward toward your goals.
