My Approach to Helping

I am an MFT with experience tutoring, teaching and offering psychotherapy to adolescents, children and their families. Though I work together with clients of various academic levels, I specialize in working with people who academically struggle as a result of a learning disability and various educational obstacles. Along with family and individual psychotherapy, I also provide school observations and consultations. I find that by working together with school staff, teachers and other providers, my clients are able to achieve success within their academics and behavioralemotional health.

Students today often feel overwhelmed with everything that is expected of them. Between academics, extracurricular activities, family and social obligations, students (and parents) feel stressed-out typically leading to problems with anxiety, depression, relational problems, drug and alcohol use, etc.

If you're looking for support and balance with academics, andor helpful navigation through challenging circumstances, email or call me to schedule a consultation!
