After more than ten years of work with traumatized children and adolescents in the state's child welfare system and now currently working in the adoption and foster care community, I have always felt a strong connection to families and and have worked hard to demonstrate my cultural competency.
The ideal client who I work with therapeutically is motivated and desires change. This client values the therapeutic relationship while also working toward success quickly. This client should be excited, even if a little bit anxious, about gaining valuable insight into themselves and their place in their life. As far as couples/marriage counseling is concerned, couples should be motivated to stay together and not simply stopping off at therapy before divorce. Couples should be willing to work hard and look at themselves as individuals as well as a family.

*NEW CLIENTS ACCEPTED via TELEHEALTH* Ever feel like you have a way to do something, and though it does not work the way it seems like it should, you feel it “works for you?” Do you find that you have a way of behaving and struggle to break free from yourself? I find that humans act in patterns. We think about a problem and act in a way that is the most comfortable to us and tend to repeat these patterns regardless of the result. I work with people living with depression, anxiety, trauma, anger concerns, separation/loss/grief issues, and people coping with discrimination.

I believe that most people, even young children, possess inner knowledge of how to solve their own problems. I view my role as a clinician who can help improve self-awareness, teach skills that bring an inner sense of peace and self-control, and assist in providing real world solutions to a multitude of mental health challenges that prevent an individual from functioning at their very best. In treating children and adolescents, their improvement often includes establishing a trusting connection not only with the client and parents but sometimes a team of supporters (i.e. teachers, PCP, and often psychiatrists).

Like a butterfly emerging into life, a child requires nurturance, safety, and care. I believe in supporting child and adolescent emotional growth and developmental processes throughout the life cycle especially when healing from adversity is necessary. My approach is collaborative working closely with the parents, schools, and collaterals involved to enhance over all well-being in every capacity of the child's environment. Stemming from a strength-based perspective, using play and expressive art therapies, CBT/DBT, and Somatic Experiencing as theoretical approaches have proven to provide the best outcomes in healing and growth.

Complicated as they are, relationships are the backbone of healing and the foundation from which we all can thrive. How we relate to ourselves and to others is paramount in shaping our worldview and our ability to live happier, healthier lives. It starts with an introduction; where we go from there - well, the possibilities are boundless.

I specialize in helping clients let go of the negative emotions that keep people anchored in the past or afraid of the future. These emotions are usually part of either an acute (one time) or chronic (on-going) traumas that a client has experienced in his or her life. Once the emotions are dissolved, the trauma no longer has power over a client and the client has more energy to enjoy life, both present and future.
