Individual Therapy

A Healthier, Confident You

In our therapy sessions, we’ll work to solve current problems and improve positive thinking and behavior. I can help you explore coping skills you've developed to navigate life and help you decide which ones are of benefit, can be modified, or no longer serve you.  We can find valuable tools to give you more choice in how you cope with life’s obstacles.

I focus my practice on supporting neurodiverse clients in learning more about their nervous systems and their own unique strengths, challenges and needs to function most optimally in their personal, home, work and/or school environments.  Get in touch to inquire about current availability.

Sharing a part of our healing journey with others who may have some common experiences can help us know we are not alone and offer another avenue for healing through connection and experiencing mutually supportive relationships.

Holding Hands

Couples Therapy

Support for Your Relationship

I support couples in improving their communication and understanding of each other and the strengths and needs of their relationship, especially couples where one or both are neurodiverse. With the help of various therapeutic methods, you can develop new understandings, new attitudes, and new hopes for your relationship. Developing knowledge and skills to navigate complex relationship topics in respectful, loving ways can be of great benefit.  Schedule an appointment today to begin your journey toward stronger connection.

Family Time

Family Therapy

Strengthening Your Family Connection

Family Therapy can be an invaluable way to increase awareness and understanding of your particular family system and the subsystems and individual roles that sustain it.  It can help you learn to better communicate, connect and support one another and your family unit. Contact me today to learn more about how family therapy can help you and your loved ones thrive.

Old Globe

Children and Adolescents

Creative Art, Play, Sand & Narrative Therapy

Children and teens face multiple changes and challenges at these key developmental stages, which can result in increased anxiety (social and general), depressed feelings, decreased self esteem, and peer rejection that may negatively impact their lives at home and in school.  I use a variety of creative, play, narrative and mindfulness-based therapeutic techniques to connect with kids and teens, to meet them where they are at, and to help them reconnect with their sense of worth, build confidence, and learn new skills to better express their feelings and needs so they can more capably navigate change, relationships, school, and life.

(For Uninsured or Private/Self-Pay Clients)

The No Surprises Act (H.R. 133, effective January 1, 2022 ("Act") set new requirements for health care providers, facilities, health plans, and insurers seeking to prevent consumers (clients) from receiving unanticipated medical bills. This Notice is intended to comply with the Act's requirement to inform uninsured and private pay clients that they have a right to a “Good Faith Estimate” to help them estimate expected charges they may be billed. 

As uninsured or private (self-pay) clients, you have the right to receive a “Good Faith Estimate” explaining how much your mental health care will cost. You have the right to receive (by asking provider or by my providing your with) a Good Faith Estimate for the total expected cost of Non-Emergency Healthcare Services, including psychotherapy and related services and costs. You can ask me for a Good Faith Estimate before you schedule a service.  If you receive a bill that is at least $400 more than your Good Faith Estimate, you can dispute the bill. For questions or more information about your right to a Good Faith Estimate, visit
