Specializing In Helping Children, Adolescents, Couples & Families
FIND FREEDOM, ACCEPTANCE AND JOY
Everyone has something. Every family has something – something we struggle with, hoping it will magically disappear, fix itself, or that we can throw away.
We try stuffing away feelings of frustration, anxiety, anger, guilt, sadness, disappointment, fear, regret, or shame… Until they resurface again.
No matter what you or your family’s “something” is, identification and acknowledgement is the first step in beginning a personalized journey of discovery, understanding, awareness, and lastly, acceptance.
Your life does not get better by chance, it gets better by change.
Whether I am working with frantic parents of a newborn, a toddler who has elected himself boss of the home, a child who has continues to disobey at school, an adolescent believing his parents are stupid, a broken-hearted college girl, a couple dealing with infidelity, or a family who has experienced the death of a child, I make a practice to meet my patients where they are emotionally.
I want each person I work with to know they do have a voice, and by becoming accountable, they can change their lives for the better.
Our Unique Approach
My patients describe me as having an “out-of-the-box” approach with kids as well as adults. My office is purposefully designed to not be the typical clinical setting. Having no desire for a standard office setting, I created instead an atmosphere of uniqueness, comfort, and safety.
My support team includes a 39-pound Sulcata Tortoise, our Golden Retriever therapy dog and chicks!

I see it several times a week in my private practice. Kids who don’t know how to handle disappointment much less know what it actually feels like to experience disappointment. I don’t know about you but my parents allowed me to experience disappointment and never sugar coated it when I did. Many kids (and adults) […]
I’m continuing our theme on anxiety for another month. This has been so life-changing for so many of my patients and followers. Reports of anxiety has increased significantly since the pandemic.

Research teaches us that securely attached children will get the most out of life and thrive to their fullest potential. It is important to understand how you can achieve this as a parent.
