While my therapeutic approach is typically positive and fun, I take client care seriously as I support children, adolescents and families on their journey toward achieving their goals. I enjoy collaborating with individuals and families to help uncover strengths and improve relationships while promoting positive communication skills and improved coping skills that can be easily transitioned from the our sessions into everyday life."

Internal Family Systems (IFS) provides powerful, effective new ways of relating to our sometimes extreme thoughts and feelings. IFS helps clients cultivate a little more space inside, which increases a sense of choice over reactions and behaviors. IFS is a particularly good fit for people who experience anxiety or depression, have a trauma history, feel overwhelmed by emotion, bothered by relational patterns, or stressed by recent life changes."
