About

Are you looking for a therapist who is warm and engaging, flexible and practical? I believe that developing a strong working relationship between therapist and client is the basis for growth and change. I listen to your needs first, and will work collaboratively to identify and work toward your goals. My specialties: Helping young children and their families understand development, work through challenging behaviors, anxiety, depression, anger and other mood concerns. Supporting adolescents as they strive for independence and maturity. Managing parenting stress for individuals and couples. Healing from trauma.
I have experience integrating many styles of therapy, including psychodynamic, CBT, positive psychology, play therapy, sand tray, mindfulness, and trauma-focused, to help clients manage difficult feelings and symptoms.
When you need support, please reach out for help. Let’s have a conversation so you can determine if I am the right therapist for you and your family. Let’s work together to identify helpful things you can do in the moment, while also trying to understand the underlying factors that brought you into therapy.
