About

I work with a wide range of clients and concerns. Anxiety, depression, past trauma, relationship struggles, and behavior difficulties in teens and children are among a few of the common issues I treat. I have several years of experience with play therapy as well as therapy with adults and teens. I see each client and their experiences as unique to them with their own needs and strengths. I am very open minded and non-judgmental and really do care about each one of my clients. I consider the relationship I have with my clients to be central their success.
I have graduated from Texas State's Animal Assisted Counseling Program and have a trained Siberian Husky, Sansa, as well as an adorable Papillon, Pixie, (who is in training) to be apart of the therapy process. I am a board approved supervisor for both clinical hours as well as for play therapy and love sharing what I have learned with others in my field.
I have a fully equipped play therapy studio (for all ages) including sand tray, art and music therapy, and imaginative play equipment. In addition to traditional talk therapy, I am well trained in the use of these alternative modalities for clients who may benefit. We also do a lot of work with parents to help support and build parenting tools.
