I utilize evidence-based therapy practices for children, including Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Trauma-Focused CBT, and Mindfulness. I enjoy incorporating games, activities, and artwork into my sessions with children under the age of 11, using these tools to help fortify the concepts of CBT. Along with my work with children, I have parents join sessions once per month to provide information about treatment.
Adolescence can be an exciting and complicated time. My work with teens focuses on meeting them where they are developmentally. Some teenagers need support with school issues, including attentional problems, bullying, social anxiety, and identity. Others need guidance for how to cope with distressing emotions. I tailor my work with teenagers towards their current needs, weaving in skills-based therapies, such as CBT, Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) and Behavioral Activation for Depression.
Whether transitioning into adulthood after turning 18 or coasting through middle age, I enjoy working with adults to help them fulfill their full sense of self. I thread evidence-based therapy through our work together, focusing on identifying current struggles while providing coping skills and insight into the session.
Whether utilized as the sole focus of treatment or an adjunct to child/adolescent therapy, I aim to help parents build their toolbox of skills. These skills are gained through evidence-based parenting methods.
