About My Clients

As the parent or caregiver of a struggling child or teen, you’re not looking at therapy as your first course of action - you’ve already tried everything you can think of. You may have even tried working with another therapist. You aren’t able to enjoy your time together like you used to and you and/or your partner might even be feeling resentful towards your child or one another. You’re ready for a therapist who will be an active participant - giving you support, feedback and suggestions.

My Background and Approach

By combining Play Therapy with Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, I provide evidence-based treatments (read: science-backed) that research shows to be effective in working with many of the concerns you may have. Since earning my masters in counseling in 2010, I have had amazing experiences as a therapist for children, adolescents and families in multiple settings, including private practice, acute inpatient treatment and a partial hospitalization program. In addition to being a therapist, I provide supervision to recent graduates and other clinicians. Before my life as a counselor, I had the honor of being invited to be a part of a handful of families as their nanny, as well as been an Office Manager for a counseling practice and a long-time head counselor for a summer camp. Oh, and the standard-issue customer service/retail/food-industry jobs too. (Ask me about how good frozen chocolate chip cookie dough is when we meet.)

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS: What is your favorite color? - I have two - orange & pink. What’s your favorite book? - Harry Potter series. (Lord of the Rings if you're old enough to be allowed to read the series. Or most anything with dragons.) Okay, then what House are you in? - Probably either Ravenclaw or Hufflepuff. Unfortunately, I haven’t come across a sorting hat recently to find out for sure. Do you have any kids? - Yup - 1 feisty toddler! Do you have any pets? - 1 puppy, 2 cats & a guinea pig. Do you really play videogames? - Absolutely. Why did you decide to be a therapist? - It’s sort of a long story but it all started when a cat fell from the balcony above my condo. No, really! (You can ask me when we meet.) - Also, I’ve always loved working with kids - they have all the best ideas. - Our brains are amazing and fascinating. Did you know that therapy actually changes your brain?!? Whaaaaat? I know! Awesome.
