My Approach to Helping

Transitions in life are a very vulnerable time where we have the potential to struggle and get stuck in our thoughts and relationships. I work with youth experiencing trauma and social issues learn how to build connections with themselves and others. Through this process, I will also use CBT, Mindfulness, Strength-based, and Motivational interviewing to develop a healthier mind and body.

I am an experienced therapist that has worked with youth dealing with many different struggles from anxiety to drug addiction. With over 15 years working as a School Counselor and 7 years in the treatment and prevention of addiction, I know how to encourage positive changes with youth in even the most tumultuous of times.

I would love the opportunity to work with you and your child. I know that life isn’t always easy and sometimes we experience very scary emotionally difficult surprises along the way. As a parent, you are doing the best that you can to try and get through it. I can be there for you and your child. We are in this together!
