I specialize in working with kids ages 3 - 12 years old.
For kids, I use expressive therapy to create a fun and dynamic experience, providing healing through the use of imagination and expression. I combine these practices with Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and Behavior Therapy for effective, long term change.
I feel strongly that a partnership between the therapist and the parent(s) is imperative for the therapeutic process; therefore, I highly encourage communication and parent involvement. This includes time together at the end of each session as well as scheduled parent meetings to discuss the child's progress, parenting strategies, and goals.

I am out-of-network for insurance, but will provide a super bill for you to submit to your insurance company for reimbursement according to your health care plan. Most clients receive 60-80% reimbursement. You may use a Health Savings Account (HSA) for payment, and all payments can be applied toward your out-of-network deductible.
An initial intake session is required for each new client. This session is used for information gathering, goal setting, treatment planning and rapport building. For child clients, this session is scheduled for parent(s) only.
Child therapy sessions are scheduled for 50-minutes, including a parent wrap-up with child and therapist at the end of each session.
