My Approach to Helping

My approach to helping helping children is to offer them unconditional positive regard and provide opportunities for them to work through their difficulties at their own pace through play and creative art activities. My Everett office has a wide range of carefully chosen toys and activities designed to facilitate exploration and a strong sense of self. As their sense of self grows I help children discover techniques specifically tailored their individual strengths, interests, preferences, and developmental level. These techniques help children learn how to understand, manage and cope with their symptoms across their life span.
I offer ADHD coaching for children and parents and general parent coaching.

My approach to helping adults is to facilitate a safe and open relationship that will allow us to explore your unique strengths, difficulties and experiences. Through this relationship and exploration, I will share my expertise in choosing the best course of treatment for your individual needs.

Groups I Work With

    I have been trained and have experience working with children and adolescents from age 3-21 and adults from age 21-70. I have completed internships in several settings.
    My first 18-month internship was completed at a school for children in crisis. During this internship I interacted with children aged 5-12, parents and teachers to provide psychotherapy, psychological assessment, and parent and teacher coaching. I assessed and treated a range of concerns including problematic behavior, anxiety, depression, trauma, ADHD and learning disability.
    My second 6-year internship was completed at Antioch Community Counseling and Psychology Clinic. In this internship I worked with children and adolescents aged 3-21, adults, couples, and families from a wide range of cultural and socioeconomic backgrounds. I gained extensive experience with concerns including problematic behavior, anxiety, depression, trauma, ADHD, learning disability, divorce, relationship problems and spirituality.
    My final 2-year internship was completed at Providence Cancer Partnership. In this internship I worked with adult cancer patients, caregivers, and children of patients. I helped people who were experiencing emotional and functional distress from their diagnosis and treatment. I provided patients with techniques to help them cope with difficult medical procedures and other life stressors. I also worked with caregivers to help them process and manage the stress they were experiencing, and children who were having difficulty understanding and accepting their parents or grandparents' diagnosis. In addition to traditional psychotherapy, I also helped people to plan advance directives, develop power of attorney, and plan advanced care.
