When you are facing challenges in your life, it can be helpful to have someone to listen and provide some guidance.

Are you a parent who is concerned about your child's behavior? Is your family facing major life changes?  Does your child seem sad, worried, or angry? Do you feel that you need some support in helping your child to thrive?  

My clients find that therapy provides a safe environment where they can receive support, begin to make changes in their lives, and learn new ways to resolve problems. 
Therapy can help children and teens have a healthy way to express feelings, build positive coping skills, handle problems more effectively, and heal from difficult life events. Through therapy parents can develop a more positive relationship with their child, improve communication, and learn positive parenting strategies that are effective and loving.

My Approach:

In counseling, I utilize interventions from a variety of therapeutic approaches including art therapy, play therapy, cognitive and behavioral, solution-focused, and interpersonal.  In addition, I have received training in the following evidence-based approaches: Trauma Focused Cognitive Behavior Therapy for trauma and PTSD; Seeking Safety for trauma, substance abuse, and acting out behavior; Triple P Positive Parenting Program for child behavior problems; and Interpersonal Psychotherapy for mood disorders, anxiety, relationship difficulties, and grief.  I believe that it is important to involve the family in the treatment of children and adolescents and often meets with parents for parenting skills training. 

My Experience: 

I have experience in working with individuals, children, adolescents, and families from a variety of settings, including schools, residential treatment, juvenile probation, foster care, and community mental health.  I specialize in working with clients with trauma, abuse, depression, anxiety, substance abuse, autism spectrum, relationship difficulties, and behavior problems.
