About

These days people are experiencing mental health issues at an increased rate and need a therapeutic space to address their needs. I believe in working with both children and their caregivers to identify and address those needs. Children often struggle with mood disorders, behavioral issues, and trauma; and at an increased rate since the pandemic. Neuroscience tells us the best intervention is early intervention. Addressing concerns early in life can reduce the need for treatment as an adult. Not everyone is able to receive mental health care as a child which is why I also enjoy working with adults to improve their mental health.
I have training in various trauma treatments and have extensive training in child development. As a play therapist, I have undergone specialized training in the most effective treatments for children for a variety of mental health concerns. I also enjoy working with adults for various issues including but not limited to trauma and mood disorders.
It's difficult to take the first step and reach out for help. Just being on this site looking for a therapist shows bravery and strength! My primary goal is to help my clients feel safe and secure to work through the mental health concerns they have. Feel free to reach out to discuss how I can help you meet your mental health goals.
