Thank you for taking the time to read a bit about me. With over 15 years of experience, I offer a down-to-earth, solution-focused, and non-judgmental approach to therapy. I bring with me not only in-depth and quality education and experience, but my own personal journey through life. Helping children, teens, and families have healthier, happier, and more productive experiences is my passion.

Transitions are challenging, and everyone can use some support at one point in time or another. I love my work and enjoy meeting and working with people from all walks of life. Parents are often relieved to have their children in counseling with me, because they realize I genuinely care and always strive to provide quality and appropriate help.

I also work closely with doctors, schools, and other healthcare providers to maintain above average care, but most importantly, I am very skilled at making a therapeutic connection and have the unique ability to teach healthy coping skills to manage whatever life may throw in your direction. Please call or email. I would love to chat to make certain that I am a good match for you or your loved one.

More Info About My Practice

My practice is a fee-for-service, as I am not currently on any health insurance panels. However, if your health insurance carrier allows you to choose an out-of-network provider, services may be covered in full or in part by your health insurance or employee benefit plan. I would be more than happy to provide you with a superbill, detailing receipt of services, which you may send to your insurance company. Please call me to discuss my current fees. If I am unable to accommodate your financial situation, I will try my best to assist you in finding appropriate referrals.

Specific Issue(s) I'm Skilled at Helping With

Child and Adolescent Therapy:

Child and adolescent therapy focuses on helping to improve a child's quality of life. I have extensive experience in assisting children and adolescents who have problems in school, at home, or with developing and maintaining friendships. Some children have difficulty expressing their feelings and concerns verbally. With these children, I utilize art therapy, sand tray therapy, play therapy, along with traditional talk therapy. Please keep in mind that some signs that a child may be in need of professional help include:

-Decline in grades.
-Disruptive behaviors at home or school.
-Isolating.
-Feelings of hopelessness and despair.
-Change in eating or sleeping habits.
-Anxiety.
