Cassie has been an advocate for children for more than twenty years and pursued her calling to make the lives of children more healthy, balanced, and resilient.  This work has been a lifelong passion.  This passion for children began at age 17 when she volunteered at her local Boys and Girls Club and continued throughout her doctoral education.  And now, after more than 15 years as a clinical child psychologist, her passion has been personalized as a mom of two.

Cassie is a self-described “kid helper" who helps kiddos be the happiest and healthiest kid they can be.  She loves working with children and their families to help improve relationships, increase self-esteem, reduce problem behaviors, decrease family stress, and promote resiliency. Cassie uses a blend of evidence-based practices and creative interventions to tailor treatment to the unique needs of each child and family. She believes that counseling should be fun, playful, and engaging and you will often hear laughter coming from her office.
