As a licensed clinical social worker, I have treated children and young adults from ages 3-25 with a range of concerns, from anxiety, ADHD, Autism, depression, learning disabilities, TBI, and much more. I love to learn, laugh and play with my clients as I create a space where they know that no matter what they will be met with transparency, authenticity, safety and unconditional care and positive regard. Being a kid can be a really lonely part of life and I aim to help them develop coping skills, social skills and self-esteem to help them accept support and fortify relationships. With experience as a school social worker and an intensive outpatient program therapist, I am confident we can find a solution. If you are interersted in supplemental group therapy for yourself or your child please let me know. Group therapy is a very effective treatment for children and young adults.

What can clients expect to take away from sessions with you?

In my first session I will, first and foremost, cultivate a space of caring and oppenness. While introducing myself, discussing confidentiality and going over consent will be the main focus, I will also strive to get to know the child, what makes them happy, what makes them comfortable and why they've come to see me. The first session is a relaxed, fun session where the child can explore how they feel in therapy.

Explain to clients what areas you feel are your biggest strengths.

As a provider I can always promise transparency, forthrightness, authenticity and a non-judgmental stance. I can pivot and adapt therapies to suit the client's changing needs, and will always share the session with them so they can have autonomy and direction over their care.

My treatment methods

Cognitive Behavioral (CBT)

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy is a treatment I use with nearly all of my clients. CBT is a type of talk therapy that helps target a range of issues. Using CBT we will recognize your thought patterns, how they effect your daily life, and develop strategies that are tailor made for you to achieve the goals you have set.

Trauma Informed Care

As a social worker, I am keenly aware of how trauma effects the body and mind. Using a trauma-informed lens in my practice, I will always consider how your past effects you as we move through treatment.

Strength-Based

All of my client work is strengths-based. I promise to come to every session seeing the very best in you, and helping you to see it too.

Solution Focused Brief Treatment

I am adept at short-term, solution-focused treatment that can help you get back to the level of functioning you are used to. With a specific goal in mind, we will work together to create a treatment plan that works for you.

Mindfulness-Based Therapy

This type of therapy is used to address a variety of conditions, including anxiety, depression, stress management, and emotional dysregulation. It is often incorporated into several therapeutic frameworks, such as Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) and Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT). The core of mindfulness-based therapy is teaching clients to focus on the present moment without judgment. This helps reduce rumination on past events or anxiety about the future, common issues in various mental health conditions.
