About

I work with adults, teens, and children. I specialize in helping individuals and families heal from and cope with the impact of issues like trauma, abuse, grief, loss, adoption, attachment problems, anxiety, depression, life transitions, parenting challenges, family conflict, relationship struggles, and postpartum and women's issues. I believe every client I see is more than their problems or labels. I complete a thorough assessment, so I can customize treatment to meet clients where they are and help them toward their goals. I also create a supportive, non-judgmental atmosphere that supports reflection and healing.
I have helped clients in a variety of treatment settings, including outpatient therapy, in home therapy, and residential treatment centers for adults, adolescents, and children. I have received training in using somatic and attachment-based treatment models, including EMDR, SMART, IFS, and TBRI.
It can be hard to take the first step to reach out for help from a counselor, and it’s not easy sharing your struggles, but working through it is the only way to achieve true healing. I would be honored to walk alongside you in your healing process. Contact me today by phone or email to discuss your child’s, family’s or your needs.
