My clinical specialties are child and adolescent mental health counseling and family therapy. Initially, I only wanted to work with adults, but during my internship, my first patient was a child. After working with that child, I found I enjoyed working with children and having the ability to use creative interventions to assist both child and family.
I like to focus on the child as a whole and not just the behaviors they are presenting. Every child is different and needs tailored interventions that impact their overall functioning. I also believe in providing a child- and family-focused approach to treatment, meeting the child where they are. I accomplish this by offering interventional strategies and allowing patients and families to guide treatment to create and meet treatment goals effectively.
In my free time, I enjoy painting, baking and spending time with my family.
