I work with ages 3 through adulthood: individuals, couples, and families. I have worked with individuals who have: depression, anxiety , Bipolar, grief from any type of loss, ADHD, Autism, stress, anger, divorce, and those who need a third party to talk to without judgement. I am trained in Adlerian Play Therapy for children and adults to reach beyond traditional talk therapy for self-expression/processing when words are hard to find. It is proven that children say much more in play than they have the words for.

My experience in social work began in hospice and an international placement in India. Upon returning home, I continued to work in hospice, where I encountered end-of-life concerns, depression, anxiety , grief, and loss. I implement a strengths-based, heart-centered, holistic, and spiritual approach that is collaborative and non-judgmental. Guided by a culturally sensitive perspective, I enjoy working with a diverse population. I empower clients to tap into their own creativity to assist in their healing journey. I blend cognitive behavioral therapy with expressive arts to help clients reach their goals.

Whether it's depression, anxiety , trauma, relationship struggles, or tackling a new chapter of life, I love working with clients who are ready to understand themselves better, and looking for support in their growth. I believe every person has their own unique set of patterns for tackling life and emotions, and problems often arise when these patterns are no longer serving us well. It can be difficult and frustrating to seek a better life if we do not first understand what has brought us to our current struggle or what still stands in our way. I'm here to be a listener, companion, and problem-solver while you're on that journey.

Anxiety Therapists
At the core of anxiety is a mistaken appraisal of danger in which threats are exaggerated, triggering an array of negative feelings that overwhelm patients and lead to avoidant behavior. Therapists take aim at the three big components of anxiety—worry, physical arousal or edginess, and avoidance—by teaching one or more well-researched programs of skills that are custom-tailored to patients’ own worst thoughts.
