My greatest passion is working with children and adults with anxiety-related disorders, including obsessive-compulsive disorder. I also deeply enjoy working with individuals and families to heal and empower family dynamics and relationships. My personal style is direct, compassionate and solution oriented.

I have extensive experience as a school-based child therapy specialist and have counseled children who were dealing with social and emotional issues such as
those associated with attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder, anger, and grief. Transitioning to working in private practice has allowed me to bring all my valuable experience as a school based counselor and children’s group facilitator into a setting where I can have greater reach and more therapeutic freedom. In this setting, I have been able to expand my toolbox of modalities and become more integrative and holistic in my approach.

When working with clients, I integrate complementary methodologies and techniques within a goal-oriented approach. I apply evidence-based modalities such as: Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Exposure and Response Prevention (ERP), Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), and Mindfulness as part of any treatment plan for anxiety based disorders. I am also proponent of helping my clients find self-empowerment and teaching them the practice of self-compassion since we often see anxious kiddos and adults being really hard on themselves. When working with children I also utilize (SPACE), Supportive Parenting for Anxious Childhood Emotions, which is a parent-based treatment program for children and adolescents with anxiety, OCD, and related problems. I truly enjoy empowering parents to support their children’s journey with anxiety in healthy and
adaptive way.
