I provide individual therapy with adults and children ages 9-18. My approach is grounded in Cognitive Behavior Therapy, Acceptance Commitment Therapy, and Mindfulness. I specialize in anxiety, depression, helping people change patterns of behavior, and coping with intense emotions. I also have experience with trauma and self-harm.
Parenting is the easiest job to judge and hardest job to do. I’m here to help you accept the challenges, lean away from self-judgment, and give you evidence-based tools to help you manage stress and your child’s most difficult behaviors.
I offer an in-home 8-Week Parent Coaching Program: My coaching program teaches parents and kids skills; to help parents motivate in compassionate, consistent and disciplined ways so that their kids will follow directions; improve relationships with siblings, teachers, and parents; make smart choices; and more consistently engage in desired behaviors.
Behaviors I will help you reduce in your home:
My Parent Coaching program includes in-home, as well as in-office sessions as needed. I provide coaching at times of the week or day when your family struggles the most, including evenings and weekends.

I conduct Parent Seminars at local area schools. These workshops focus on providing parents hands-on tools for understanding and managing behaviors and conflict at home. Workshops are educational and are also highly participatory. Best suited for groups of 10-20. Workshop topics include:
Strengthening Family Communication: Talking so your kids will listen and listening so your kids will talk.
Handling Strong Emotions: How to keep your family calm in the eye of the storm.
Guiding your children with Limits and Effective Discipline
Encouraging Positive Behavior: Strategies for motivating and reinforcing your child’s behavior
Developing a Meaningful Family Routine
I have also conducted a 6-week workshop on Procrastination.
Please contact me if you are interested in me providing a workshop or Parent Seminar.
