In my practice, I work mainly with children, youth and their families. I offer individual therapy for children/youth who struggle with issues like self-esteem, anxiety, depression, bullying, emotional regulation and parent-teen conflict. Parent sessions are recommended alongside the child's therapy. In certain situations, I provide parent coaching for those who want to reflect upon themselves and develop better parenting strategies. For those seeking individual and family therapy, my hope is to offer a space where each person can talk without shame and begin to compose the life they desire.
I am a Clinical Social Worker/Psychotherapist who specializes in child psychoanalysis and family therapy. I offer an integrative model and draw upon developmental and attachment theories. Through talk therapy, using methods like play and empathy, clients begin to feel safe, trust and begin to speak about their worries.
What I have discovered is that people tend to feel alone and isolate when they face challenges in their lives. In my work, I am present, non-judgemental and transparent. I start where the client is, and together we can try to make sense of the challenges ahead.
