Children, adolescents and young adults sometimes experience stress related to school, activities, challenges at home, or periods of transition. These stressors may lead to mood swings, changes in behavior and difficulty expressing emotions and thoughts. My role as a therapist is to help kids and young adults cope with stress and learn strategies to maintain an emotionally balanced life. I provide a comprehensive diagnostic evaluation and then work with individuals and families to develop an individualized treatment plan that draws from the client's existing strengths. I utilize evidence-based treatment primarily drawing from CBT.
I have a specific interest in working with college students to help manage the stress of this transitional life stage. I specialize in treating youth coping with anxiety, trauma, depression, ADHD, adjustment concerns, and social challenges. I also provide family and parent support. I offer supervision for graduate level clinicians seeking clinical licensure.
Therapy helps individuals to feel understood and supported. I provide a safe and nonjudgmental place for clients to talk about their concerns and practice effective coping skills. If you are struggling, I will work with you to sort through the best ways to help. Please reach out to me as I am happy to answer any questions you may have.
