I enjoy working with clients to assist them in developing skills that enable them to live in line with their values and goals. I have experience working with children of all ages, adolescents, and adults; addressing a variety of issues including anxiety, depression, behavior concerns, and adjusting to family/life changes. I am especially passionate about working with parents and children to facilitate the development of positive, healthy relationships while also addressing emotional and behavioral concerns. I know that parenting can be incredibly challenging and I utilize a combination of psychoeducation and skill building to help parents interact with their children in a more effective and positive way.
I utilize therapeutic principles and techniques from a variety of modalities including: cognitive behavioral therapy, mindfulness, child-centered play therapy, and child parent relationship therapy, I strive to continue learning more about various techniques and theories in order to increase my ability to help in a way that is tailored for each unique individual.
When I"m not working, I enjoy spending time with my husband and two little boys, making yummy food, and reading.
