I help teens overcome difficult experiences by learning to identify and own their strengths while also understanding that it’s okay to ask for help.
I do my best work with teens and young adults experiencing anxiety, depression, trauma, and low self-esteem who are ready to face difficult emotions and feel connected to hope for their future.
I hold a Masters of Family Therapy from Drexel University and training in Ecosystemic Structural Family Therapy which is a therapeutic modality focused on attachment, emotion regulation, executive functioning, and co-caregiver alliance to promote increased communication and connection in the family.
I am passionate about supporting BIPOC teens as they navigate the traumatic effects of systemic racism and learn to find their voice and purpose in the world.
My work history in a teen girls residential treatment program has prepared me to best support families in learning to increase communication and strengthen parent-child attachment. I believe that caregivers have the power to motivate their teen and support them as they develop their identity and purpose.
I have a special interest in working with military families and families navigating co-parenting. I believe that connection promotes hope, and I want clients that I work with to feel confident in themselves and connected to their family who can be their biggest supporters.
I help teens turn to their caregivers for support as they learn to identify, understand, and respond to their emotions in healthy ways. I help families learn to support teens through validation and empathy so that their child can feel connected and grow in their self-confidence and optimism about their future.
