My Areas of Practice


Psychotherapy for Children and Adolescents and Families

I provide individual and family therapy, depending on the issue at hand. Some techniques that I use range from play therapy with children, cognitive behavioral therapy, mindfulness, and family systems work. Therapy can be very beneficial if you or your child is experiencing emotions that feel overwhelming such as depression or anxiety. It can also be useful if you are seeking greater family harmony, improved child behavior and compliance, or closer relationships with less conflict. In our initial session, we would explore the difficulty you were seeking help with and layout goals and a plan.

Parent Education and Guidance

Parenting is a complicated skill and children sometimes present us with challenges that feel overwhelming. Whether you are a brand-new parent adjusting to having a baby, struggling with toddler and young child behavior challenges, or experiencing conflict with a teenager, parent guidance can help you develop new tools to increase the harmony within your home.

Coping with Chronic Illnesses (e.g., diabetes, cancer, asthma, obesity)

Being diagnosed with a serious medical illness can cause stress and anxiety. Having therapeutic support as you adjust to a new diagnosis and learning to develop positive health behaviors can be beneficial in healing and coping. Whether you are interested in improving you or your child’s health, struggling with limitations due to a chronic condition, or facing grief and loss, therapy can be beneficial in promoting healing and behavioral change.

This is an area that I have the specialized in prior to opening my private practice by working in hospitals and medical settings. I work together with doctors and members of your medical team to help you and/or your child cope with pain, symptoms, and adherence with medical recommendations.
