About My Clients

Children and teens can oftentimes feel overwhelmed, anxious and completely out of sorts and this can translate into tantrums, emotional outbursts, shutting down, slamming doors, school issues, and a change in personality that you don't recognize. It's tough to watch your child experience life in a way that you feel isn't healthy. But it doesn't have to be this way. When we're given the tools to understand that the challenges we face aren't insurmountable, we can slowly develop our empowerment.

My Background and Approach

The tools that I'll provide your child or teen with are tools that I've been perfecting over many years of helping others just like them. I have loads of great ways to make life a little less challenging. We'll work together to figure out ways that work best for their particular situation, at their pace and in their language. It's not a one size fits all model, and it's based on the unique and powerful trust built during therapy. I am client focused and solution focused and we will come up with a treatment plan that allows your kiddo to lean into their emotions, learn about what's going on in their brains, play, laugh and overall begin to love and respect themselves and their journey. They will come away with a wider window of tolerance & resiliency. I have several years experience working with children and teens from all walks of life, but at the end of the day, allowing them to truly see their special and unique gifts is one of my most valued experiences.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I believe every single living being is here for a reason and important to the fabric of this world. The uniqueness and diversity can only prove to make this place abundantly beautiful. I’ve lived a plant based life for many years, have been personally affected by addiction and suicide and have vowed to learn all I can to propel love, empathy and compassion in my life on the daily. I love to laugh, have never met a hand puppet I didn't immediately want to hang out with, and pride myself on learning more about myself each day. I'm married to my best friend, rarely pass up the opportunity to march for equality, and ride my very old hand me down bicycle to farmers markets any chance I get. If you'd like to learn more about how I can help your child or teen, shoot me a message or phone call and I can't wait to meet!
