As a Licensed Mental Health Counselor with over 10 years of experience, I believe that all people hold the key to their own wellness and possess innate wisdom about their problems. By building a supportive and open counseling relationship, we begin creating the necessary conditions and supports that tap into that inner healing "self." I view each client as a unique and whole person and tailor treatment to each individual’s needs. Balancing goal-oriented treatment with spontaneity and "in the moment" shifts, I help my clients go to the source of their emotional pain and heal from within.
I specialize in working with children, adolescents, and adults facing depression, anxiety, and routine life and developmental stressors. Furthermore, I carry certification in Play Therapy and Integrative Nutrition. Therapeutic interventions include combining cognitive-behavioral methods with creative, narrative, and trauma-informed practices. I also pull from various modalities, including humanistic, child centered play therapy, IFS (internal family systems), TFCBT (Trauma Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy) and sand play therapy.
I look forward to meeting with you to help you better understand the source of what is bringing you to counseling, find ways to develop new perspectives and reclaim your motivation. Together we can lay the foundation to help you grow from adversity and develop confidence in your ability to handle all that life throws your way- with wisdom and self-compassion.
