Individual Counseling Sessions For Children & Teens
As a pediatric Mental Health Clinician, my focus is to help children heal, recharge, and become aware of their inner strengths through increasing self-awareness, improving mental & emotional wellbeing, and increasing emotional intelligence.
Counseling Sessions For
Children & Parents
Connection is a part of our genetic makeup. Conjoint therapy is an approach to treatment involving two or more clients of the family system. This can be used to support parent-child bonding, and strengthen emotional connection in all relationships.
What is Telehealth?
Telehealth is beneficial for children and their families, as it expands and enables access to mental healthcare services. Telehealth services are convenient, and a natural solution for improving access to care. This model of care has been shown to be effective with children and adolescents because this age group often expresses unwillingness or reluctance to participate in traditional therapy sessions.

I am a passionate woman, wife, and mother, who strives to create a space for my clients to feel safe to connect, learn, and explore the world as healthy individuals. Health and wellness are very much a priority. I am incredibly passionate about children's mental health, which involves the most important agents of change- their parents or caretakers. I am able to help parents not only understand child and adolescent mental health, but provide them with unique skills and strategies for proper mental health management.
As a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist, my expertise and passion provides a safe space for children and adolescents to begin the work of becoming not only mentally and emotionally healthy, but to experience whole-self healing.
Children and adolescents often have a difficult time expressing and understanding what they are feeling in healthy and appropriate ways, so I aim to give them the tools they need to share what they are feeling. In addition to "talk" therapy, we might use toys, games, or art to help give words and meaning to thoughts and feelings. Let's make mental health a priority, in order to help prevent mental illness!
