About

I have extensive experience working with teens and young adults but have also worked with children and adults of all ages. I relate well with adolescents with behavioral issues, school issues, involvement in juvenile justice system, mental health issues and history of substance use. I have experience working with youth, children and families with child services involvement including foster care. Throughout my years of providing therapeutic services, I have worked with people who struggle with depression, anxiety, anger management, and other mental health issues.
Through my professional career, I have completed training in Trauma Focused modality, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Dialectical Behavior therapy, Motivational Interviewing, Solution focused therapy, and utilize a strength based approach.
I am here to listen and provide a supportive environment where one can expect a safe, professional, insightful and authentic therapeutic relationship.
