I work with many different types of people, but specialize in working with children and adults seeking support around anxiety, depression, substance abuse, high-risk behaviors, PTSD, identity formation, gender exploration and LGBTQ+ concerns.
I love spending time with young people and learning to see the world through their eyes. I have dedicated over 12 years to working with children and families because I see such value in enhancing parent-child relationships.
I primarily specialize in helping young people (8-30) explore their own minds and voices. I provide tools and support to help them succeed in traditional settings (such as school) while also supporting each person’s unique qualities, creativity and drive that lead them to balance, a stronger sense of self, safety and security.
I believe that childhood and adolescence are the most appropriate developmental stages for intervention, which can help prevent later challenges. My goal as a clinician is to aid parents and children in developing better skills to manage difficult emotions, communicate, and live comfortably with one another.
I also provide support for caregivers seeking information and encouragement around parenting, attachment, self-care, difficulties at home and skills to help support their children.
Some of my approaches include:
- Movement based therapy
- Play Therapy
- Relaxation Techniques
- Sensory informed
- Socratic Dialogue/Critical thinking
- Systems Theory
- Cognitive Behavioral Therapy
- Trauma Focused-Cognitive Behavioral Therapy
- Attachment, Self-Regulation and Competency Model
- Collaborative Problem Solving
