About My Clients

I help teens with anxiety, stress management, and frustration to feel understood, calm, and able to take on the world around them. Parents I treat often feel frustrated with their child's behavior and feel like their strategies don't work. They feel their parent-child relationship is strained and that parenting is not as fun as it should be. I also work with people with chronic illnesses to manage their medical condition so that it does not get in the way of enjoying their life.

My Background and Approach

I have been a pediatric psychologist since 2008. I focus on using evidence-based treatments that have been shown to work. I also individualize the techniques to fit each person or family. This way, you get the most effective treatment in a way that feels personal and adapted to you. You will increase your understanding about your thoughts, behaviors, and feelings; learn new skills to improve these areas; and get support as you practice. I have specialized training in Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy, behavior modification, and Parent-Child Interaction Therapy. I help you change the patterns that keep you feeling stuck, so that you can really enjoy your life and relationships again. Parent-Child Interaction Therapy is particularly designed for young children, ages 3 to 6 with disruptive behavior, inattention, impulsivity, or anxiety. It strengthens the parent-child relationship to increase the positive behaviors and specifically addresses problem behaviors.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

Relationships, particularly with family and friends, are extremely important to me. These values are reflected in my work because I love supporting people with navigating the complicated relationships in their lives. I am also passionate about teaching parents strategies to better connect with their toddlers and young children and see behavior changes that follow.
