I am passionate about working with children and their families and have made child therapy my primary focus over the past decade. In our work together, I empower children and adolescents to “create a new story” where they can be free to use their brilliant imagination and other positive resources to begin to take control of anxiety, depression, and acting out behaviors.
I specialize in working with children and adolescents on the autism spectrum. I have extensive experience utilizing behavioral and developmental/relationship based strategies such as ABA and Floortime. I am a trained provider of the Secret Agent Society Program, an espionage themed social skills program for children on the autism spectrum.
I hold a Masters degree in Psychology, emphasis in Marriage & Family Therapy/Art Therapy and an undergraduate degree from UC San Diego with a major in Theatre and minor in Visual Art: Painting/Drawing. I went to drama school in London. I love utilizing my creative arts background to help all children overcome their challenges. Art and play become the ways we can express our feelings and solve problems together.
