About

I strive to empower children, adolescents and young adults to overcome personal obstacles and find balance in their lives improving their view of self, the world, and interpersonal relationships. I love helping my clients find passion in their lives by removing the blocks that are keeping them from being their best self and learn to live in healthier ways. My focus on behavior and changing unhealthy habits promotes a lifestyle that fosters grounding, mindfulness, and self-compassion into a natural, every day practice.
I utilize a variety of techniques, including Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT) and Trauma-informed interventions. Also, I am passionate about yoga and meditation, so I often bring those practices into sessions to help clients reconnect with their mind and body through mindfulness.
My clinical lens is heavily focused through a strengths-based, person-centered approach to assist clients with stress management, increasing self- worth, processing trauma, assertiveness training, aggression replacement work, mood management, anxiety reduction, empowerment and work/life balance.
