I believe that each person is created unique and unrepeatable, and as such, each is meant to thrive. I believe that our highest calling is that of peace, joy, hope and light. But life can be hard, and at times we need another person to believe in us and help uncover whatever has darkened our spirit for one reason or another. My approach is practical, strategic, yet holistic. You may expect me to be a compassionate listener without judgment within a safe environment, to provide research informed services, while helping you reach your goals as quickly and effectively as possible.
My primary focus is working with children, teens and their families, however, I welcome adults as well! Specific interventions that I have training and experience in include cognitive-behavioral, solution-focused, motivational interviewing, ACT, DBT and narrative therapies. I also use Collaborative Problem Solving in addressing behavioral and communication issues.
