I work in a small group practice with children and adolescents ages 2-18. I provide individual therapy, collateral services for parents, and neuropsychological testing. Areas of expertise include trauma, abuse, foster care, eating disorders, behavioral difficulties, anxiety, depression, and developmental disabilities. I implement interventions from cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), dialectical behavior therapy (DBT), and play therapy (including sand tray work). My primary theoretical orientation is based on attachment and social learning theories.
