Change is hard. And it takes courage. As a therapist I create a safe space, free of judgment, where your pain and suffering can be accepted, understood - and healed. My approach builds on the strengths and resiliency of my clients. I will not try to fit you into a single theoretical framework. What I do is tailored to each unique individual, based on thorough assessment, using the best of evidence-based therapeutic methods.

My work with clients includes anxiety, depression, trauma/abuse, behavior, self-harm, suicidality, family conflict, attachment, & addiction. I am a Registered Play Therapist and I am certified in co-occurring disorders/dual diagnoses. I am trained in trauma therapies, sand and play therapies, expressive arts, & cognitive behavioral therapy.

I have several years of experience both as a clinician and supervising other clinicians. I've worked with kids, teens & adults in a variety of settings, including: inpatient hospitals; partial hospitalization programs; intensive in-home services; and outpatient clinical settings.
