About Me

I have 4+ years experience working with children, teens, families, individual adults and couples. My strategy is to work in tandem with my clients to find their confidence and potential, as well as to identify the realistic and attainable goals that they desire to achieve through the therapeutic process. I include my clients in the development and creation of their treatment plans which are correlated to their diagnosis and fueled by the client's motivation for change. I work with children and adolescents who are often struggling with ADHD/ADD, learning disabilities, behavioral challenges, depression, anxiety, PTSD, and familial dynamics. In most cases with children and adolescents, I prefer to do a minimum of 1 to 2 sessions with the family members or caregivers present each month. I also have experience working with adults with similar diagnoses. Additionally, I have experience working with clients who suffer with co-occurring diagnoses, (i.e. anxiety and depression). Therapy can be an intimidating, challenging & overwhelming process. Therefore, I utilize out-of-the box techniques to make it more enjoyable and am willing to explore non-traditional strategies while working collaboratively. I strive to create environments where clients can achieve their goals often without even realizing they were doing the work!
