She/Her

I love working with children and teens! Connecting to a child's world is so interesting. I thoroughly enjoy engaging with their creativity and curiosity. I understand children are sensitive to the relationships in their life. Times of stress can take a toll on all relationships, the one with ourselves, with our family members, and often times our children. I work to be present, offer a nonjudgmental, and understanding atmosphere. Making sense of life's challenges and choices can be complicated. Let me help your child and family navigate through challenges to reclaim your peace and gain a new sense of freedom.

My years of experience in child behavioral health have been spent in various setting including community, outpatient clinics, and school-based. I apply evidence based treatments to assist my client in discovering their own potential.
