“Building strong relationships with children and families is one of the unique privileges of this work. I work with children, adolescents, and young adults who are struggling with anxiety, depression, emotion dysregulation, interpersonal challenges, life stressors, and issues related to athlete mental health. With every client, I attempt to identify an effective way to talk to children and family members that is both non-threatening and developmentally appropriate. I am committed to implementing individualized, evidence-based interventions, such as cognitive behavioral therapy, dialectical behavior therapy, and acceptance and commitment therapy, to affect meaningful change. In creating a collaborative environment characterized by genuineness and authenticity, I hope to empower children and families to achieve their therapeutic goals. ”
