Are you, your child, and/or your family having difficulty managing emotions ,thoughts, or navigating interactions? I would be delighted to assist! I have worked with children, adolescents, young adults, and their families for more than 10 years in a variety of settings (i.e. pediatric hospitals, community-based health clinic).I primarily provide services for patients (ages 3 to 26) experiencing acute/chronic medical conditions as well as general child conditions (e.g., ADHD, child trauma).Additionally, I work along with primary care/specialty providers, and provide culturally competent psychological assessment, consultation, and psychotherapy.
Evidenced-based interventions that I have found most helpful include Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (guides anxiety/depression and trauma symptom reduction), Mindfulness-based interventions (aids stress and pain reduction), Theraplay Principles (improves child-parent bond), and Pediatric Hypnosis. I also offer additional modalities of treatment including Virtual Reality Therapy.
My practice is fun, swift, and effective! I have an easy-going, but direct therapeutic style. I combine evidenced-based practice, and am passionate about what I do. I care about children and their families well-being and want them to feel safe. Additionally, I offer several parent workshops and child/adolescent groups.
