About

I am starting this new practice combining a mixture of out of the box services for kids, youth, and teens 3 y.o.-18 y.o. including nature,community based, and Animal Assisted therapy. I have been working with children, youth, and families in a Social Work capacity for 15+ years. I have worked in schools, domestic violence shelters, residential, child welfare, and as an outpatient therapist in mental health clinics since 2013. I have worked with a variety of issues including: depression, anxiety, trauma, abuse/neglect, families in the foster care system, and adoption.
My specialty is working with youth on body image,self-esteem, anxiety, healthy relationships, wellness, and depression issues. I work from a strengths based, humanistic, and client centered approach with all my clients. I currently offer group therapy for teens and tweens. I use art, play therapy, sand play, Nature Based Therapy, and Animal Assisted Therapy.
