About

I am an LCSW focusing on anxiety, attachment, trauma, depression and OCD. I work with kids and youth to navigate the difficult emotions and pressures that come with growing up and to build positive coping skills. I work with parents on developing parenting skills, reducing personal stress and building positive relationships in the home. I work with adults to handle challenging life transitions and explore relationships and family dynamics. My approach is to understand your current challenges and pain. By utilizing a strengths-based approach, each client feels confident to overcome their hardships and reach their full potential.
I specialize in CBT to challenge negative thoughts and strengthen coping skills, and in attachment therapy to strengthen relationships. I have experience in trauma-informed therapies to uncover how past traumas affect current functioning. I also utilize psychotherapy, play therapy, mindfulness, and ERP to ensure each client receives individualized care.
If you, your child or family are struggling to cope with new adjustments, behavioral challenges, peer and family relationships, anxiety, depression, OCD or past traumas, please reach out to begin an opportunity for change.
