About

Although I work with a broad spectrum of clients and issues, I specialize in youth and family issues and offer home visits as scheduling allows. My clinical experience has been in school and office settings. I work with clients on issues such as child development, adolescence, parenting, and blended families (lifespan issues, broadly speaking). In addition to lifespan development, I am very comfortable working with anger, anxiety, depression, and Obsessive Compulsive Disorder.
Figuring out how to move through life in the way that is most comfortable for you is my specialty. I have abundant empathy and experience across the various stages of life development. Reach out to me for a free 20-30 minute consultation to see if I am a good match for you.
Navigating life-development, family, and relational issues is difficult enough by itself, let alone when someone is dealing with anxiety, depression, OCD, or other conditions. I am a relatively interactive clinician, using my professional and life experience to employ empathy to connect with a variety of lifespan issues.
