Mental and Behavioral Health

  • Child and family therapist, Children's Wisconsin



I specialize in working with children, adolescents, and their families utilizing evidence-based therapeutic modalities such as Dialectical Behavior Therapy and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy. I use specific interventions to address depression, anxiety, behavioral concerns, trauma and OCD. I strive to create a therapeutic space where support, validation and trust is the foundation of the treatment. My goal is to empower all individuals involved to learn skills, understand their emotions, and build a life that is aligned with their values. I recognize the importance of individualizing treatment interventions and meeting each child where they are at developmentally and emotionally. My therapy approach centers from a place of understanding and hope during times of uncertainty.
