About My Clients

Are you or your child struggling with anxiety, worry or anger? Are you/they grieving the loss of a loved one or a beloved pet? Is it difficult to make or keep friends/relationships? Do your thoughts sometimes overwhelm you or get stuck? Do you feel frustrated that these things are getting in the way of living your life? Working together, without judgement, through mindfulness practices and other techniques, we can find the skills that can help manage these thoughts and feelings.

My Background and Approach

I have been working with children and teens for over 10 years in various settings on building social and emotional skills, managing anger and understanding it's origin, as well as working through grief. I believe in a collaborative approach that includes mindfulness, strengths-based skills, brain science and non-judgement. In other words, you and I will work together to determine your therapeutic goals and the steps to take to reach those goals. We'll explore various techniques and tools that you can begin using right away to help manage anxiety, overcome grief, and build positive relationships.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I believe that to varying degrees we all already possess skills such as self-awareness, self-regulation, and growth mindset. I believe we are all capable of growing these skills so that we can master the stress, anxiety, sticky thoughts, and feelings of isolation that can overwhelm all of us from time to time and get in the way of living life to the fullest. In an effort to protect us from real or perceived threats, our brains often create habits that may have been helpful at one point in our lives but are no longer necessary now and are no longer helpful. I believe that through self-compassion and understanding we each have the power to change these habits so that they work for us instead of against us. By learning to recognize and acknowledge unwanted thoughts, feelings or behaviors in the moment, we are creating the power to choose our response instead of reacting in ways we may regret later.
