I enjoy working with children, adolescents, families, and adults. Using an integrative model, I draw on evidenced-based treatments as well as best practices in the field of psychology. I have worked extensively with both children/adolescents and adults with a wide variety of presenting problems and mental health issues.

I view a child as being embedded within their family system and, therefore, work jointly with children/adolescents and their parents with the goal of improving both child and family functioning. In addition to providing child and family therapy, I also conduct dyadic therapy for young children as well as individual therapy for adults.

More Info About My Practice

I understand that it is essential for you to find someone you can trust and work closely with when facing challenging issues and difficult times. For this reason, I provide an initial consultation so that we can meet and feel confident about moving forward and working together. I am considered an out-of-network provider for most insurance panels and will provide invoices that clients can submit to their insurance companies for reimbursement if they so choose.

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

My approach to therapy is integrative drawing on client-centered, psychodynamic, cognitive behavioral, attachment, and family systems models. I have a subspecialization in trauma treatment across the lifespan and have been trained in: Child-Parent Psychotherapy for the treatment of trauma/attachment issues in early childhood 0-5, Trauma-focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (TF-CBT) for children 6-18 years of age, and cognitive processing/exposure therapy for adults. I am also fully bilingual in Spanish and provide therapeutic services to Spanish-speaking clients.
