Description

I am a Clinical Psychologist, who provides treatment for children and youth struggling with a range of difficulties, including depression, anxiety, emotion regulation struggles, and parent-child relationship difficulties. I have particular experience in the treatment of trauma-related struggles. I believe in creating a safe, warm, playful, and accepting space in the therapy room, and in including parents in their child's treatment whenever possible. My hope is that therapy is a safe place to learn more about oneself, and to try out new approaches in difficult situations and relationships.
