Our Story

Thanks for stopping by! I started The Help Hub in service of my belief that everyone should have access to high-quality, evidence-informed, coordinated care that meets their unique needs.


As a therapist and parent, I know that parenting can be tough - and when things feel out of balance, chaotic or overwhelming, it can feel unmanageable.


I also know how hard it is to watch your child struggle and not know who to turn to, or what to do. You may feel like they aren't getting good care.


When my own child needed support I realized just how hard it was to find help. And, when I found it, it was often fragmented, short-term, didn't meet our needs, and didn't seem to be clearly grounded in evidence-informed approaches. Even though I had the privilege of specialized knowledge, it was an uphill battle that often felt impossible.


It doesn't have to be that hard. You deserve high-quality services that meet your needs, don't require a full-time job to coordinate, and communicate with one another. This is my vision for The Help Hub.


I invite you to discover how we can work together towards achieving your goals. If you have questions or think our approach might be a fit for you, reach out and let's talk.
