Being a young person in today’s society can be difficult. From balancing school, sports, and extracurricular activities to navigating relationships, friendships, and personal experiences, it’s easy to see how life may become overwhelming. Faced with numerous challenges and changes, it is not unusual for today’s youths to go through a rollercoaster of emotions.

Sadness, frustration, and worry are normal emotions that all young people experience as they cope with the ups and downs of life. However, if these feelings begin to lead to unhealthy thought and behavioral patterns, it is best to seek therapy.

I am a licensed therapist who specializes in helping young people thrive in their daily lives. I also offer support, education, and practical assistance to parents and guardians during the therapeutic process. Growing up may present youths with many challenges, but we can work together to help your children feel healthy and happy again.

More Info About My Practice

I believe that happier and healthier children equal happier and healthier adults. Thus, addressing the emotional needs of children and adolescents early on is crucial. Science has shown that our brain continues to develop well into our mid-twenties. Since a person's brain is so malleable during childhood, the powerful opportunity exists to set the emotionally healthy groundwork that will benefit a child throughout his or her life.

My Therapy Focus

I work primarily with children, adolescents, and their families to help them regain a sense of balance and well-being. By challenging negative thought patterns and providing the therapeutic tools necessary to change unhealthy behaviors, I encourage children and adolescents understand their own beliefs and actions and take ownership of them.

My therapeutic interactions with children adolescents revolve around sensibility and non-judgment. I aim to meet children and adolescents where they are, allow them to feel heard and understood, and use therapeutic skills to help empower them to make healthy decisions.

This process may sound serious, and it can be at times. However, I like to include art and play sessions in order to help the environment feel comfortable. Additionally, I am a certified children's yoga teacher through Yoga To Grow, and in the appropriate circumstance, I enjoy integrating yoga into the therapy process in order to increase mindfulness and lower impulsivity.
