I believe in creating a playful, warm, creative, and accepting environment for children and adolescents. I believe in including and empowering parents to be an active part of their child's growth and well-being. Depending on your child's unique needs and age, I may utilize non-directive child centered play, or integrate directive techniques to help your child learn new skills to meet their full potential and cope with the demands of every day life. I am also interested in maternal mental health and have completed the Postpartum Support International Certificate Training in Perinatal Mood and Anxiety Disorders.

I work with a wide range of presenting issues such as the following: anxiety, depression, perinatal mood and anxiety disorders, trauma, grief, perinatal loss, infertility, anger, defiance, low self-esteem, acting out behaviors, and difficultly adjusting to major life transitions.

In addition to counseling experience, I have experience exploring grief and spirituality with individuals as a chaplain. I am deeply committed to respecting people's unique beliefs. I honor that individuals make meaning and find hope in different ways. I view it as a privilege to journey alongside people and meet them were they are.
