Who I Serve

I am a dedicated and creative provider of evidence-based therapy for children, adolescents, adults, and families. I have a certificate in Child and Family Therapy, extensive understanding of child development, and utilize modalities including cognitive behavioral therapy, play therapy, family systems theory, and talk therapy in my practice. I strongly value a team approach, collaborating with families, schools, and any others engaged in a child’s life. I specialize in work with with children experiencing anxiety, depression, trauma, ADHD, behavioral challenges, social skills, & Autism Spectrum Disorder. I am passionate about incorporating creative arts and play into sessions, using drawing, imaginary play, and floor time to help children become aware of their body/mind connection. This creative approach helps clients engage meaningfully in therapy while they learn evidence-based skills to help them succeed outside of our sessions. I am committed to working as a team to support you, your family, or child in adapting treatment to fit your specific needs and provide tools to thrive outside of treatment. "You have the power over your mind, not outside events. Realize this, and you will find strength"- Marcus Aurelius
