My Approach to Helping

I specialize in working with children, pre-teens, and teens, and young adults, special needs included. My experience allows me to help in many areas including anxiety, stress management, grieving loss, behavioral concerns, school motivation, depression, ADHD, self-injury, and LGBTQ+. I have been working as a school counselor in the public schools for over twenty years and am very familiar with the educational process. I can assist parents in working with their child's school to get accommodations they may need for academic success.

I am here to assist you with those difficulties you or your child may be encountering in life through a kind, compassionate, nonjudgemental approach. Regardless of the problems you are experiencing, my goal is to provide support, understand the motivations, work with you to set goals for your future, and develop tools to reach them.
