Every person has the ability to live a happier, more productive life--you just need the right tools! At Innovative Learning Professionals, I use proven, traditional and non-traditional approaches to improve functioning and lives. In a casual, non-judgmental setting, I meet with school-age children, teens, and adults of all ages. Whatever your struggle-- anxiety or worry, school or work, depression or low mood, relationships or loneliness, parenting or parents--- we can find ways to improve mood, behavior, thinking, and your life. Please feel free to email or call to talk about scheduling.

Although I enjoy working with a variety of clients and client needs, my current work centers around depression, anxiety, school struggles, family and parenting, adjusting to divorce, acceptance of self including identity (LGBTQ), and general life struggles. I have experience in hospital, school and office settings.

Educated in psychology and social work, I bring energy, experience, and when appropriate, humor, to sessions. I view clients as people first and believe humans are all more similar than we are different. Committed to helping you find hope and solutions, I believe you can feel and function better.
