About My Clients

As a parent, you want what's best for your child, but when they're throwing things or refusing to do chores, you may feel at a loss for what to do. Kids often express how they're feeling through their behaviors, but you don't always have a kid behavior: adult language dictionary. Sometimes you just give them a tablet and let them watch videos just to get a few moments of peace and quiet. You want to help them feel better, and you want to feel better yourself, but you just don't know how.

My Background and Approach

As a former special education teacher, I specialize in working with kids, teens, and adults with both mental health issues and developmental disabilities like Autism and ADHD. I combine behavioral therapies and play therapy to help kids express their emotions in healthy ways and help parents manage behavior issues at school/home.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I believe everyone has the ability to change and grow. I believe all humans have the right to lead happy lives free of discrimination. I also believe that as humans, we make mistakes; and we often learn more from those mistakes than we do our successes. Because I truly believe everyone is an individual, I make sure my clients have individual treatment plans to meet their needs.

  • Atheism
