I see children, adolescents and young adults with ASD, Social Anxiety, ADHD, learning and/or behavioral issues. I also provide behavioral support to parents. I offer individual, family and group therapy via telehealth.

Hello! I have over 20 years experience providing individual and group therapy to children, adolescents, and families. My background includes school counseling at a non-public school for adolescents with developmental disabilities including ADHD, and Autism Spectrum Disorder. I also have clinical experience at a private practice providing therapy to children, adolescents, and families. Here I also facilitated anger management groups. I have over 9 years of clinical experience working for a large health care organization as a clinician and developmental case manager providing individual/family therapy and developmental case management services for individuals with ASD and their families. I use cognitive behavioral techniques to help clients cope with symptoms of depression, anxiety, and/or other social/behavioral issues. I am a certified PEERS facilitator and have been co-facilitating PEERS groups for 10 years. Currently, I co-facilitate a PEERS for adolescents group and a PEERS for young adults group. The goal of these groups are to learn evidenced based social skills on how to make and keep friends as well as dating skills for young adults.
