I'm a parent and partner, and love to hike, write, and create.
My approach comes from an underlying trust that when we slow down and listen to the body, heart, and mind, we will find what we need to take that next step toward greater freedom in our relationships and our lives. My intention is to create a space where you can befriend yourself and your life, and in so doing, open up new avenues of healing, creativity and energy.

As a Child & Adolescent Therapist with over 10 years of experience, I have had the opportunity to work with hundreds of children and teens experiencing a wide variety of emotional and behavioral health challenges. I am also passionate in my work providing support and training to parents. Perhaps your child is struggling at home, at school or socially. Perhaps your teenager is experiencing strong emotions and when you try to reach out and provide support, it doesn't seem to help. Perhaps you are a parent and you feel like you have tried everything to manage your child's difficult behaviors, but nothing seems to be working.

I am certified in the Early Start Denver Model (ESDM) and am able to offer caregiver coaching on evidence-based parenting strategies to support your child's developmental progress as well as support improved family system functioning.
I have a passion for working with children and teenagers on the autism spectrum, as well as supporting their parents/caregivers. I also enjoy working with children experiencing anxiety, social interaction difficulties, self-esteem issues, and trouble managing their emotional regulation. Parenting a child with a mental health disorder often presents additional challenges which create stress on the family system. I believe in creating a space for both children and parents to feel supported, heard, and understood.

I specialize in supporting women/birth givers and their families during fertility challenges, pregnancy, postpartum, in processing traumatic birth/NICU experiences, and in the early parenting years.
Life transitions and relationships can be both beautiful and difficult. Everyone deserves a safe space to share and explore their thoughts and feelings. Often through reflection, when we allow ourselves to slow down and notice what we are experiencing in the moment, true self discovery and capacity from within can be found and cultivated. With compassion and openness I walk along side my clients as they work towards relief and resolution. I utilize a blend of traditional therapy approaches along with experiential modalities such as Brainspotting, Mindfulness exercises, and Guided Visualizations to tailor the therapeutic experience.

Parenting is difficult as is, but throw in trauma, mental health, and/or chronic illness, and it can feel like we're always treading water with no end in sight. As a chronic illness mama myself, I know how hard it can be to balance caring for our health & our kids! For over 10 years, I have been working with children, teens, & adults. I love working with parents & kids to assist them in meeting whatever goals they have from reprocessing trauma, building self esteem, or managing life transitions. Life can be hard, & I love helping others to recognize all the things worth celebrating in it especially themselves!

Relationships are magical. They are also hard work. Just when you thought you'd found your person, the intimacy and joy gives way to new depths of disconnect and loneliness. Or perhaps you're a new parent , excited by the unique possibility of bonding as a family, only to discover overwhelm, even suffering. Trauma can create additional barriers to connection. Attachment issues and difficult childhood relationships can result in reenactments of past relationships and roles that are just plain exhausting. Sound familiar? Then its time for change.

You will be learn to reduce comparing your own parenting skills to those of friends and family members.
Does going out in public with your child feel like an impossible task? Do you feel guilt over your child's meltdowns or teen's isolation? Do you feel like doctors, teachers, and other adults just don't get it? Do you worry about their safety? Are you overcome with guilt looking at other families on Facebook and Instagram? Parents want to feel like things are under control; that your family can be happy and have productive evenings, and that your child can transition to school and activities, feel confident, have friendships, and like themselves.

In a rapidly changing world, parenting can be subject to fads and changing styles, and parenting in some privileged circles has become a competitive sport. But the needs of child development as delineated by science remain relatively stable: safety, structure, support, and love.
