Life is a journey that can often become difficult to maneuver. However, facing life's struggles can empower us to be the people we are intended to be. This process is often mentally and physically exhausting. I would be honored to walk alongside you, your child, and/or your family on your personal journey of self-discovery. I love children and specialize in non-directive play therapy with children 3-7 years of age. Additionally, I work with adolescents and teens specializing in talk therapy, games, and activities that promote personal goals. Finally, I have a heart to work with women in life transitions.

Research reveals the importance of a strong therapeutic relationship. I will offer emotional safety, transparency, and loyalty to this relationship. Together we will address your concerns, create goals, and actively work towards meeting these goals. My desire is for you and/or your child to be equipped to transition into a better version of you.

Non-Directive play therapy allows play which represents words for children not developmentally able to think abstractly. Parents are encouraged to join this process. I utilize an eclectic approach, which is centered on the our relationship, as we will focus on how thoughts affect our behaviors and actions, I would love to hear from you.
