I believe that therapy can be an important tool used to help you live the life that you want, to find balance and to grow as a person. My approach is strengths-based, straight-forward, supportive and nonjudgmental. As a licensed psychologist, I enjoy working with clients to help them meet their personal goals. This may include addressing concerns with depression, anxiety, life transitions, relationships, and grief after a suicide. I enjoy working with children (7+), adolescents and adults. In working with children and adolescents, I involve family members when appropriate to address family dynamics and help parents.

Every child deserves to be a child - to feel safe, loved, and to experience the world through a lens filled with wonder, joy and curiosity. When trauma occurs, it can affect every fiber of a child’s being causing chaos and disruption to their childhood. It can often feel impossible to know where to begin to start the healing process. That is why I am here - to help your child untangle and process the jumbled and complicated emotions that trauma can cause.

I specialize in Play Therapy, a treatment model most appropriate for pre-school and elementary aged children.
Your story matters; tell it. Making the decision to pursue counseling is brave-I know because I've done it. I don't think I have the right to sit in the "therapist chair" without having worked on my own issues in the seat you are thinking about taking. I have been in counseling at various times and am committed to an ongoing process of self-awareness and growth. It's an honor to be part of someone's journey-to build the trust necessary to walk through pain, vulnerability and ultimately growth.
