I specialize in treating adolescents and young adults with adjustments issues, anxiety disorders, depression, identity issues, transition issues, family changes/ divorce, and becoming independent from parents and establishing oneself as an independent and confident young adult. I teach coping strategies and help individuals develop tools to become more self-aware, competent, and more fulfilled with their lives. I help individuals work though trauma, loss, crises and major life changes. I try to foster a healthy and positive attitude and overtime, restructure thinking distortions that create obstacles for the individual to grow and relate well to others. I present at local high schools for parent training workshops and career fairs for students. I have been in private practice for 11 years and worked in public schools for 8 years prior to starting my practice.
