Available for New Clients! Hello, I am a military spouse and parent and I have 18 years of first-hand experience understanding the up and downs of deployments and PCS moves. Sometimes these difficult life experiences leave us feeling lost and trapped in unwanted situations. I help my clients to view their life experiences as a gift for their personal development. I help adolescents and adults navigate stress, anxiety, self-esteem problems, and interpersonal issues to build resilience. I can help you to redefine your boundaries and to create more peace in your daily interactions.

Maybe your current situation is not what you imagined for yourself or your family. The journeys of childhood, parenthood and adulthood can be overwhelming. The exhaustion, uncertainty, changing moods and behaviors can take its toll. I specialize in working with children through adults who are struggling, offering child-directed play, individual and parenting support. My aim is to help clients learn to soothe themselves, express their needs and feelings appropriately.

My approach is non-judgmental, adaptational, and strengths-based, working collaboratively with clients to develop evidence-based treatment plans that meet their unique needs and change with them throughout service provision. I believe that each individual carries with them their own strengths, experiences, and perspectives, and are most capable of thriving when acknowledged for their complete and authentic selves. I am passionate about exploring topics of parenting skills and coparenting, separation/divorce, and mood and anxiety disorders within a supportive framework.

I am a certified Parent Child Interaction Therapy therapist (PCIT), I have training in Supportive Parenting for Anxious Childhood Emotions (SPACE), and I have extensive experience working with children with a variety of chronic health conditions.
I often hear parents say things such as “I love my child but I’m not enjoying being around them anymore” or “I can’t get any alone time because my child always needs to be with me”. Do you ever wish there was a manual for parenting ? Have you tried everything but nothing seems to work to manage their behavior or anxiety? Does your child have a chronic health condition that is becoming overwhelming to manage? Maybe parenting is confusing and no longer feels fulfilling. You’re in the right place. You’ve already taken a step toward feeling confident in parenting and managing the challenges of life.
