I 've been in private practice since 1997. Throughout that time I have continued to expand on my knowledge and develop specialties in play therapy, working with the LGBTQ community, substance abuse, and trauma including PTSD. I work with clients experiencing anxiety and depression. I see each client as unique and feel honored to join them in their journey towards health and wellness. I am affiliated with organizations that keep me abreast of evidence-based practices for the unique situations that clients bring to therapy.
Play therapy for adults and children. Respecting the power of play including sand tray work. LGBTQ community including the use of WPATH standards and seeing transgender clients through their process of transformation. EMDR to assist individuals who have had trauma to heal.
