Areas of Interest
"I am a creative, hands-on, interactive, and an adventurous type of person; thus, that’s how I see myself being as a therapist. I want to make my space safe and as welcoming for any and all whom I will encounter and individualize my interventions in order to best serve those with whom I am working. I utilize a strength-based and solution-focused approach to therapy, while including art and play- based techniques to better assist my clients through their treatment. I am extremely passionate about advocating for and working with children and adolescents of all abilities. I am most passionate about working with our youngest population of clients, as well as adolescents, who are diagnosed with ASD, ADHD, intellectual or developmental disabilities, Generalized or Social Anxiety Disorders, and/or Depressive Disorders. I began working at BrainPower in the ABA department and became a Registered Behavioral Technician (RBT). Therefore, I am also passionate about serving clients with behavioral challenges, in which I enjoy incorporating reinforcement schedules, such as Token Boards, while also finding the client’s preferred reinforcers. I also utilize these approaches when doing behavioral parent trainings with the parents of my clients. In addition to behavioral parent trainings, I am interested in helping children and their parents or caregivers to strengthen their relationships through PCIT."
