My passion is empowering children to master their emotional lives in a warm, safe, and dynamic environment.
I am a licensed Child & Adolescent Psychotherapist who has worked for over 16 years in helping school-aged children (Ages 5-17) with a wide variety of emotional difficulties, including trauma, bereavement, divorce, school challenges, and social difficulties. In a warm, safe, and dynamic environment, I support children in mastering their feelings, coping with life challenges, and leading a more balanced life.
I believe it’s incredibly important and powerful to give children and teens space to be themselves, to create a strong rapport, and empower them to make choices that will help them lead a more balanced emotional life. Knowledge about oneself in the world as a unique emotional being is a powerful tool, especially when learned young. In my private practice with children, I use a combination of Psychodynamic Psychotherapy, Play Therapy, and Psycho-education to achieve these goals.
