My work with clients focuses on providing client centered and strength-based psychotherapy to pre-teens, adolescents, adults and families. I invite those looking for a safe and caring space to explore their current struggles and to learn strategies to manage anything from day-to-day stressors or transitions, to more long-term, debilitating circumstances. The therapy I provide is relational and solution focused, using techniques driven from theories of CBT, DBT, positive psychology and family systems theories.

I specialize in the treatment of trauma, loss and grief. I see clients with anxiety, depression, mood disorders, ADHD and relational/ transitional issues. I provide parent support to parents who are divorced/ co-parenting and to parents of children who have experienced abuse/neglect or are struggling with behavioral difficulties.
