Are you a parent or caregiver struggling to communicate well with your child….build a healthy

Anxiety, depression, ADHD, and other mental illness

I approach therapy with compassion, creativity, playfulness, and openness – respecting your
courageous decision to pursue therapy and therapeutic education. I use evidence-based
modalities in my treatment, and offer parenting assessment and training (as well as premarital
counseling) through PREPARE/ENRICH.
