Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
Hello and welcome! I am a licensed Marriage Family Therapist specializing in counseling services to children, youth and parents. My sub-specialties include counseling to youth with special education ranging from learning disabilities, to autism spectrum, to emotional disturbance to a variety of physical disabilities including autoimmune difficulties. I am very familiar with Individualized Education Plans (IEPs) and 504 Plans as I have been a member of such teams and have coordinated these meetings when working within the school district settings outside of my practice. I utilize a strength-based approach and believe rapport is key. Areas of support include: anxiety management, reducing depressive symptoms, developing healthy coping skills, improving social skills, increasing confidence & self-efficacy, improving self-concept, fostering growth of youth responsibility and appropriate independence, managing life transitions, improving child-parent relationship, and parenting classes. I sincerely love my work as a therapist providing counseling services to children, youth, and their families. Seeing client progress is incredibly rewarding; especially knowing that it positively impacts the whole family unit. I am honored you took the time to read some of my background; I look forward to providing support to make a positive difference.
