Are you tired of calls from your child's teacher? Are you having trouble getting through to your teen (or pre-teen)? Do you want to help your child socially and emotionally but not sure how? The truth is that being a young person today is complicated - social media, bullying, and competition are challenging to navigate for both children and parents. Sometimes a professional is needed.

I have been providing holistic, strength-based and practical behavioral supports for children and adolescents for the past 10 years, both in schools and private practice. I specialize in treating anxiety related issues, low-motivation, self-esteem and behavioral disorders (ADHD, oppositional defiance, etc.). In my practice, I work to understand the needs of your child and family and then create a tailored treatment plan for both inside the therapy room and beyond.

I believe in teaching young people the coping skills they need to feel happy, confident and successful. I employ a variety of research-based counseling modalities such as cognitive behavioral therapy, play therapy, and motivational interviewing. In support of parents and guardians, I make sure you are also equipped with the tools and language to be your child's best reinforcer.

I provide a free phone consultation before setting up any sessions and I look forward to hearing from you.
