I've had the pleasure of working with a wide variety of individuals including children and families for 10 years, adults and couple's for 4 years, and I have worked really closely with those who have lived through traumatic experiences.
Our personal history, circumstances, and relationships have shaped our outlook on the world, including how we see ourselves. Because we all come with layers, I utilize strategies of Attachment Theory, Behavioral Therapy, and Insight Driven Modalities to learn what from your past has shaped your experiences today. I specialize in working with highly sensitive individuals (children & adults) to help foster their authentic identity and achieve mood regulation, higher self esteem, relief in areas of depression, anxiety, and fears of failure. I am honored to support meaningful change in your journey!

I also specialize in therapy that focuses on the relationship between the child and parents.
My therapeutic approach mainly focuses on helping my clients identify their strengths to help alleviate anxiety, depression, and trauma. I am a firm believer that our childhood experiences contribute to our beliefs, behavioral patterns, and selecting a romantic partner. Therapy is a process! To allow ourselves to be intimate and vulnerable with someone about our experiences and trauma can be daunting. As a therapist, it is my goal to help validate, create a safe environment and help understand aspects of lived experiences.

I primarily work individually with adults, children, and adolescents.
Seeking out psychotherapy is an investment in yourself so you can reach your dreams and overcome emotional hurdles like depression, anxiety, trauma, loss, relationship and work problems, and recovery from substance use. I have helped many people jump over these barriers to get more of what they want in their lives. The therapy I practice can lead to longstanding changes in your relationships and how you feel about yourself. I create a safe and confidential space where we can explore what’s getting in the way. My approach understands complexity and privileges the uniqueness of your personality.

I enjoy working with adults, children, couples. In our work together I try to develop a sense of how we might proceed to help understand more about what might be interfering with reaching individual goals. People have individual ways of working on issues and I try to encourage them in doing so as well as offer some new directions to explore.

With children and teens, I help clients express their inner worlds and grow with resilience.
Many of us struggle each day under the weight of old wounds, challenging relationship dynamics, and internalized narratives that keep us from thriving. Your suffering and symptoms might feel like too much to hold alone. We all have the ability to navigate and adapt to adverse life events and circumstances, and therapy can help us cultivate the sense of agency and clarity we need to create inner and outer change. I will provide compassionate presence and a safe environment where you can begin to explore the parts of yourself that are hurting, be seen in all your complexity, and work collaboratively toward healing.

Parent work is an important part of child therapy.
If your child has experienced trauma & dissociation, they may have trouble managing their feelings, communicating their needs, or be using challenging behaviors. The world can feel scary to the traumatized child, so it's hard for them to communicate. They often cope in ways that were the best solution during the trauma, but no longer fit current circumstances, and which seem confusing or destructive. I see it as my job to help your child explore their inner world, so, through the language of play, they can learn how to express emotions, solve problems, & get needs met in healthy ways that fit the present!
