My Approach to Helping

My mission is to help you, your child, and your family to find your inner strengths and individualized voices. We all have our unique challenges, but sometimes it may feel like we are alone in fighting our day to day battles. I will work alongside you to help you advocate for yourself, and provide insight and guidance as we work towards conquering each challenge together.

I strive to create a space for you that allows for trust and acceptance, but will also allow you to grow by challenging yourself. I strongly value the therapeutic relationship with each individual. I will help you advocate for yourself and provide you with insight and tools to manage stressful life events. In my work with children, adolescents, and families, I adopt a collaborative approach to enhance the therapeutic process. With young to middle-aged adults, I utilize a relational approach. I take into consideration social factors that affect each person and examine the power struggles that impact them as a result of these factors. I also incorporate cognitive behavioral therapy to help build skills and manage stressors.

Specific Issue(s) I'm Skilled at Helping With

Though I have training in a wide array of clinical issues, I specialize in anxiety, depression, trauma, ADHD, bipolar disorder, behavioral concerns, self-esteem, and school refusal. I have worked in a private therapeutic day school setting for many years, which has allowed me to write and understand goals for Individualized Education Plans (IEPs). I work extensively with families and school districts to advocate for children's needs. Both my research and clinical background also include a strong focus on PTSD and complex trauma.

My Role as a Therapist

My role as a therapist is to guide you to find insight and solutions to your daily life concerns. I will provide you with a safe and supportive space, but also challenge you to step out of your comfort zone in order to accept change. I will help you internalize your own positive traits and strengths by challenging negative thinking patterns and behaviors.
