You feel alone and lost, using all your effort to not lose control. Trauma can hold you back, preventing you from living in the present, but it doesn't have to stay that way. You can create the life you want, and we can make that happen together! Humans don’t exist in a vacuum- we all need support, encouragement, and a nonjudgmental listener. That’s the foundation of our work together. My goal as your therapist is to provide a safe, welcoming environment for you to foster growth and healing.

Once you've made the decision that therapy is the next step for you, finding the right neutral, compassionate, non-judgmental and empathetic therapist is of the utmost importance. My mission is to build a therapeutic alliance with you using a collaborative approach to reach your goals.

*TELETHERAPY ONLY* Hi! I am so looking forward to meeting with you and becoming a part of your healing journey. The trauma you have experienced is a part of you, though it does not have to define you. Does it sometimes feel as though you relive this trauma even though time has passed? The past seems to be making its way into any attempt you make to live in the present. You are ready to give attention to your pain, to explore vulnerability, and engage in life. You have made the decision to focus on your personal growth and healing. You are looking to better understand your story, including your desires for the future.

Is it difficult to feel close to your child because of defiance, emotional outbursts, or behavioral struggles? Have you tried therapy before, but the therapist didn’t seem to understand you? My approach to counseling for adults and play therapy for children is nonjudgmental, supportive, and often fun. I believe interacting with the world through joy and humor lets us build healing connections with others. I have 11 years of experience helping families of kids ages 2-12 with skill building to become confident, peaceful, and connected. No matter what challenges they face at school or at home, they know I will never give up on them!
