Are you ready for change? I offer affordable and accessible counseling that can help you get results. No matter what you have been doing-even if it's been for a very long while- you can change.
With a focus on communication skills, lowering anxiety, addressing challenges and encouraging positive possibilities, our work together will encourage hope, illuminate possibilities and lead to lasting change.

I have additional experience working with parents, families and individuals coping with chronic illness and conditions, and special needs/differences parenting (ADHD, ASD, sensory issues, anxiety and more). Often, I work in collaboration with Occupational Therapy Consulting to better serve our clients. I encourage my clients to develop positive coping skills while providing an open and supportive environment.

More Info About My Practice

The counseling relationship is a private collaboration between the client and therapist. While I am not an in-netowrk provider for insurance programs, I often help the client obtain out-of-network reimbursement. To help make counseling more accessible, I offer a sliding scale, strategic short term counseling, and a collaborative rate for Occupational Therapy Consulting clients.
