I am highly experienced in working with children, adolescents and young adults through their 20’s. I offer a relaxed, judgement-free atmosphere to help guide families through challenges and provide support through approaches based on research. I’ve chosen to specialize in the younger population because it’s a proactive approach which encourages future success as adults. By addressing difficult problems early on and ensuring the fundamentals of mental health are supported, individuals are more successful.
I’ve also specialized in therapy with young adults within a college campus setting. Early adulthood is often a time of finding your own identity and seeking a purpose. I truly value a person’s search for independence and sense of direction with wherever they’re at in their life.
In working with ages 3-30 years, there’s great diversity and a wide range of experiences that I am privileged to assist clients with. Most often, the clients I meet with struggle with anxiety, social difficulties, low mood, family stress and other problematic issues. If consent is given, I believe the best client care is when the client and I work collaboratively with family members and other professionals including primary care physicians, teachers, and psychiatrists to provide comprehensive care.
