Individual Therapy for Anxiety and
Less stress, more joy.
Are you going to completely lose it in the Target parking lot once in awhile? Yes, yes you will. I'm pretty sure we all will. Let's just not do it every day.
I view life as one long, complex obstacle course. I believe that we can learn the skills to navigate unexpected twists and turns with resiliency. Since it is impossible to always be graceful and gracious in your everyday life, I can help you learn healthy ways to handle emotional scrapes and bruises.
In our work together we will look for patterns, challenge unrealistic thoughts, unravel past experiences, learn new ways to manage daily stressors, and find creative solutions to old problems. Between my therapeutic know-how and your many existing strengths, we can do this!

Individual and Family Therapy for
Your Anxious Child
It's okay, we got this.
Parenting an anxious child can be freaking exhausting and guilt producing. Where did I do wrong? Am I a horrible parent? What if this never gets any better? How much longer can I handle this? Why can't I fix this?
Even though it doesn't always feel like it, you're probably doing just fine at this whole parenting thing. And your kid is probably going to be okay, too. Whether they are dealing with excessive worry and reassurance seeking, struggling with separation anxiety, having intense fears of bad weather or the dark or Q-tips, avoiding social situations, having difficulty sleeping, or crumbling under the weight of perfectionism, I've got you guys covered with both individual and family counseling.

Facilitated Support Groups for
Adults and Children
Even though it sometimes feels like it, you are never truly alone.
Humans thrive when surrounded by a community of caring others. And, believe it or not, there are plenty of other people out there facing situations similar to yours.
Groups are a fantastic way to connect, share experiences, and problem solve with a brand new community .

A quick word about parental involvement
As a parent myself, I know that you love your child more than anything and that you want the best care possible for your family. I recognize and respect the important role that you play in your child's life and, because of that, I do require your ongoing involvement in treatment.
Prior to meeting with your child, I require a full-length in-peron intake session with parents in order for us to determine whether I will be the best fit for your family's needs. My goal is to be supportive of your parenting as well as your child's individual needs and I want to make sure that we are on the same page surrounding some of the "basics."
One thing that I know is that children's needs change as they age. While younger children are heavily reliant upon you for support and guidance, it is typical for tweens and adolescents to crave independence from their parents. As a result, I strive to meet your child's developmental needs by keeping my office a nonjudgmental, emotionally safe, supportive, and confidential space for your child.
