Children and adolescents feel the weight of the world as theirs is only just beginning. Understanding and managing emotions they may not be ready yet to conceptualize is a challenging thing to go through. I believe that society can sometimes undermine the amount that children can go through and the volume that it affects them long-term. I feel that allowing a safe and free space for children and adolescents to feel everything can allow for the opportunity to open up, heal, and learn how to handle those big feelings coming in.

I support children, adolescents, and young adults facing anxiety, depression, identity struggles (i.e. LGBTQIA+ identity), as well as other difficulties including self-esteem, grief & loss, and navigating changes & transition.

My techniques used include a variety of person-centered therapeutic techniques with elements Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT)/trauma-focused CBT, expressive arts, play, as well as existential approaches.
