About My Clients

I primarily work with children ages 7 and up. I specialize in working with young clients who are struggling with everyday emotions, anxiety, grief, depression, challenging relationships or trauma. During our therapy settings we organize our sessions based on the child and family’s goals and motivations. Along the journey with my client, we unpack and depict harmful bias, stereotypes or unhelpful self-perceptions that they may be getting in the way of growth and healing.

My Background and Approach

I know kids and how hard it can be to fit in, find and maintain healthy friendships and manage the stress of growing up while balancing academics. Kids face many of the same burdens as adults - troubling relationships, grief, insecurity and fear or uncertainty about the future. As a trained school counselor, I have experience working with an inside scoop on education settings and can support and collaborate with school administrators and teams to support your child meet their needs, heal, and grow with supportive systems.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

As a counselor, I aim to create a therapuetic environment for all families with an abolitionist lens that is anti-racist, LGBTQAI+ Positive, and rooted in a framework of disability justice. My practice fuses inspiration from existential psychotherapy and expressive art. I use a wide variety of therapeutic tools to build relationships and help dive deeply with my clients in an age-appropriate way.

I offer online counseling in the following states:
