Tell us a little bit about your approach to counseling:

I believe counseling is about offering you space and tools to better understand yourself and the people you are in relationship with, including partners, children, parents, and friends.  I do behavioral work as well as facilitate deeper exploration into your conscious and unconscious motivations and intentions.  I have experience working with depression, anxiety, eating disorders, relational conflict, sexual dissatisfaction, self-harm behavior, addiction, trauma, and dissociative behavior.

What qualifications and trainings do you have?

  • Trauma Focused – Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (TF-CBT) trained
  • Cognitive Processing Therapy (CPT) trained
  • Board Certified Assistant Behavior Analyst (BCaBA)
  • DIR/Floortime Model for Children trained

Are there areas of practice that you specialize in?

I specialize in working with kids on the autism spectrum.  I have worked in the field of Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) for seven years, and have spent the last two years as a BCaBA, where I design and supervise ABA programs for kids on the autism spectrum.

What specific populations do you work with?

I work with people of all ages (children, adolescents, and adults) and in all configurations, including as individuals, couples, and families.
