Welcome to my site.
I provide therapy for children, adolescents and young adults who are looking for help and support to successfully handle life's challenges. Because my practice includes working with children, I offer strong support for parents and families who are affected by what a child is experiencing. My approach is primarily cognitive-behavioral and solution-focused, meaning that we will look at the interplay among thoughts, feelings and behaviors to explore how negative thought patterns influence behavior and work to change those patterns to provide emotional relief. I help clients develop real-life skills and coping strategies that can last a lifetime. We can work together to uncover behaviors and perceptions that hold you or your child back from experiencing more happiness and fulfillment, and bring you to a better understanding of yourself and an improvement in the quality of your life and relationships.
My background is in both clinical mental health and school counseling which provides an advantage to my clients who are experiencing difficulties at school due to a mental health or other issue. I work with very diverse problems and people. Whether you are an adult seeking support or the parent of a child who needs help, I look forward to working with you to achieve your goals.
