About My Clients

I have particular expertise and interest in helping families and children with autism (ASD), attentional challenges (including ADD and ADHD), developmental delays and disabilities, histories of trauma, complex medical conditions, anxiety, depression, and other emotional and behavioral challenges. I have specialized training in conducting diagnostic assessments for children under 5 years old. I also enjoy working with gender nonconforming and gender expansive children and their families.

My Background and Approach

Children are constantly communicating with the people around them. When children are having difficulties or challenges, the first step is always to learn to listen more deeply to the child and then to move forward from there. The right support for children and families can bolster resilience and promote thriving. I use a strengths-based approach to use what already works well for a child or within a family system as a foundation for further growth and development. I draw from behavioral, attachment, narrative, Adlerian, and solution-focused theoretical foundations to counseling, with additional training in trauma-focused cognitive-behavioral therapy (TF-CBT). From those foundations, my approach utilizes behavioral strategies within a social-emotional learning framework in which relationships take center stage. A main goal for the therapy I offer is to enhance and deepen family relationships while increasing positive interactions, enjoyment, and well-being.
