Her focus is treating children and adolescents (ages 4-18) as well as young adults (ages 18-24) with a specialization in assessment and treatment of perfectionism/academic anxiety, school refusal, OCD, and posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD).

Her Inspiration:

Tina’s own struggles with anxiety as an adolescent and young adult fuel her passion for helping others to change their personal relationship with anxiety. She finds purpose and joy in supporting and encouraging clients while they push the boundaries of their comfort zones, pursue their values, and accomplish what they never thought possible.
