I have 8 years of experience working with youth and families to navigate the endless pressure on caregivers to do it all, including having all the answers when their child is struggling. Similarly, I recognize that children and adolescents face mounting social pressure to fit in with peers or to be a certain kind of student. I support families to recognize these stressors and work with them to create space to thrive together. This may include supports to navigate complex and often unjust systems. I am dedicated to disrupting systemic inequities.
I also understand that at times children might feel wary of working with a therapist, and I honor a child’s pace and needs, frequently joining in play. Depending on what your family is experiencing, I might meet individually with your child, with your household or individually with caregivers to target the best supports for your challenges. In our initial consultation we will work together to find the services that best fit your situation.
