    • For over ten years, I have been helping children, adolescents, young adults and families develop the skills they need to reduce their suffering. I developed a strong passion for helping girls and young women navigate social, emotional and societal challenges. I have worked extensively with adolescents and young women and their families to create space for alternative perspectives of self, others, and situations. Since training intensively in Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), I look at therapy as a balancing act—accepting what is & asking for change simultaneously. This parallels the ideas that so often become polarized in families with one person pushing another to change their ways and the other person requesting that they accept them as they are. In coming to a place of balance, I have found that many families and adolescents increase their ability to effectively communicate, negotiate, and engage with one another. When there is space for this, many problems are solved. I value and practice the tools of mindfulness that DBT incorporates in both my personal and professional lives.

      Specialties: Transitioning from adolescence to adulthood, healing from the effects of trauma, coping with anxiety and depression, reducing & eliminating self-harm, helping girls and young women develop preferred identities and ways of being, building self-confidence and self-efficacy. I’ve intensively trained in Dialectical Behavior Therapy, a skills-based treatment modality for difficulties with emotion regulation.
