Hello and welcome! Working with youth & young adults is a passion of mine, as is supporting youth & caregivers in increasing their understanding of one another with the goal of strengthening child-caregiver relationships. I feel a particular pull to support young people in tuning into their internal voice so that they can build a strong sense of self-worth, & so that they are then able to navigate life transitions & all that comes with those transitions with that much more ease.

During this period of uncertainty, now may be the ideal time to address anxiety, depression, unwanted habits, repair relationships, or face situations that have caught up with you or your family members. If that sounds scary, but you are open to facing your fears, then we may be a good fit. I work with adults, children, teens, couples and families, including many first responders. I use evidence based models -- Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), and Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction (MSBR) -- to address the uncertainties of life that can occur with health, family, job, relationships or trauma.

I can't imagine getting much out only hearing “uh-huh" or the overly used, “how does that make you feel?”. Therapy can be a conversation rather than a monologue. Occasional use of humor and swearing can help you lower stress and defenses when stuck in fear, uncertainty, or judgement. I don’t believe in a sterile language environment. I invite you to swear if it helps you express how difficult, unfair, scary, or delightful a situation is. I find this uncensored atmosphere leads to an honest therapeutic relationship. If you struggle with anxiety, depression, or life stressors, you may find these techniques useful and validating.
