Parenting Issues

I enjoy working with you to help you better understand yourself as a parent and why you react the way that you do to your child. We will work together to identify how your own attachment experiences or emotions come to play in your parent-child relationship and create meaningful ways to improve this where needed.

Adolescent Development (ages 14 and up)

I enjoy helping teens to better navigate the exciting but sometimes overwhelming experience of adolescence. I utilize a brain-based approach that includes parents in the therapeutic experience to help improve the relationships within the home. Common focuses of treatment include: anxiety/depression, self-harm, relationship boundaries, decision making, self-esteem, and providing support/planning for the next step after high school.

ADHD Coping Skills

I specialize in the assessment of several neurological conditions and have provided individual therapy and coaching to help you better understand your new or previous diagnosis of ADHD. We will work together to improve time management, organization, and overall adjustment in school, work, or home life.

Psychological Assessment (ages 6 and up)

I dedicate half of my clinical practice to psychological testing to assist in the diagnosis of and treatment for: ADHD, learning disorders, autism spectrum disorder, intellectual disabilities, mood and anxiety disorders, or personality disorders. Testing always involves an initial clinical intake, generally 1-2 testing appointments, and a feedback session to go over results and recommendations.

Additional Areas of Specialization Include:

Grief/Loss and Coping after Divorce.
Anxiety, Depression, and Bipolar Disorders.
