I'm especially passionate in helping children, adolescents and young adults acquire life skills and learn self-compassion and healthy ways of coping to manage emotions, tolerate distress, and deal with life struggles in the following areas:

  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • Family Changes and Adjustments
  • School and Learning Challenges

To best meet your needs, I utilize an integrated approach that incorporates techniques from Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, Mindfulness, Family Systems, Attachment, Neuro-Lingusitic Programming, Play Therapy and Art Therapy.

I understand how challenging it is to seek help and the courage it takes to change. We carry with us the unconscious lessons and ways of being that we learned in our earliest relationships. Whatever your struggle, I am committed to helping you find lasting transformation in your life.

I have advanced training in Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction; Cognitive and Dialectical Behavioral Therapies; Emotional Focused Therapy (EFT); Developing Capable People; Crisis Intervention; Suicide Assessment and Prevention; Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP), Enneagram personality assessment, and Play and Art Therapy.

A married mother of two teenage boys, I enjoy sports, reading, and travel.
