I work with women and adolescent girls who are navigating a variety of life challenges, including anxiety, depression, trauma-related disorders, life transitions, grief and loss, and self-esteem or body image concerns. Women often face unique difficulties in the realm of mental health, but they also have unique strengths that deserve to be recognized and celebrated. I enjoy helping my clients identify and build upon their existing strengths to achieve their goals and create meaningful change in their lives. While I am passionate about connecting with women of all ages, I have extensive experience counseling adolescents and teens.

I believe we must be students of trauma; meaning I work to study you (or your child) and the ways trauma affected you.
You've exhausted all your personal skills. You're frustrated and sick of hitting that metaphorical brick wall. I get it. Whether you're a parent or a young professional, I can help. I work with preteens, teens, and young professionals reach their true potential! Therapy with me involves firstly centering your experience, wisdom, and strengths. While we get to know each other, I will be informally assessing cognitive, relational, and somatic aspects. We will look at symptoms with curiosity, not judgement. From there, we will work to untangle the web of anxiety, depression, trauma, and stress.

I am a Registered Play Therapist and when working with young children, use prescriptive techniques to target the core issues of my clients.
Children and adolescents often experience difficulties that affect their lives in dramatic ways. Whether it be a change in the family system, a problem at school, or a bumpy journey through adolescence, growing up can be a very challenging time. As a result, kids often display a change in behavior, appearance, or academic achievement that may be of concern to their parents, teachers, and families. These changes are often a cry for help and can be best treated by individual or family counseling.

Counseling is a beautifully human process. The space it creates, fosters a reflection of our journeys outside of the therapy office. For children, it can be a calm place to make sense of their world and self. For all of us, it can be the place that simultaneously holds the beauty of who we are to the world and to ourselves, while also holding our sorrows and shames. It can be a place of seeing ourselves wholly as we are and as we can be. Walking with people as they step into the space of counseling and to watch as they work to grapple with the complexities of life and fight for hope, is truly an honor and a gift.

I believe in the importance of acknowledging how the brain and body work together to form the person we are. Our experiences throughout our life shape who we are and how we move in the world. I am deeply interested in how we carry our stories in our bodies. In my practice, I integrate knowledge about the way the body, brain, and emotions work together to form our sense of self. I draw from a strengths-based perspective as I help clients achieve their goals in therapy. I enjoy working with children, teens, and adults. I especially enjoy supporting parents in the difficult work of parenting children and teens.
