I believe that therapy can be a positive outlet in order to re-charge and move towards a brighter and happier future! I have experience working with children ages two and older as well as working with adults including women and couples. When working with children I provide a child-centered approach where I will allow your child to express him or herself through the language of play. I have experience conducting social skills playgroups for children who show symptoms of ADHD, Autism, or who need overall social skills training. My experience includes providing individual therapy to children with ADHD, anxiety, autism, divorce, trauma, incarcerated parents, physical violence, and sexual abuse. I work closely with parents, teachers, and psychiatrists (if needed) to make sure that I am providing a hands on approach. I am also skilled in working with adolescents and young adults as they undergo an important transitional period in their life such as vocational training and self-awareness. I focus on helping my clients understand the various changes that occur within the developmental stages, and act as a lending ear they can share their worries and fears with. When working with adolescents and adults, I have experience working with anxiety, depression, ADHD, trauma, suicidal ideation, vocational counseling using cognitive behavioral therapy, group therapy, family systems, and a client-centered approach.
I value the well being of each and every one of my clients because I believe that the emotional journey one embarks on in therapy can lead them to understanding and finding their authentic self. When we feel depressed or anxious, it affects all areas of our life including our personal and work relationships, and creates a repetitive cycle in which our negative thoughts become our reality. I want to provide a safe environment where you can work on your inner growth. Let me be the catalyst for your personal development!
