About

We only know what we know, and unless someone comes alongside us and teaches us new things we cannot grow. I am a Licensed Processional Counselor with an eclectic background which gives me a unique perspective when it comes to mental health and counseling. I specialize in working with children, teens, and family units moving through hard things like depression, anxiety, self harming, divorce, delinquent behavior, trauma, and grief.
I have found that many issues in families stem from simply needing new ways of seeing behaviors, and skills to be empowered. Bryon Post says, “Two things change the brain - positive relationships and positive environments and the positive repetition of both.” Let’s work together toward achieving both.
Above all else I value relationships. With that in mind my approach is a combination of modalities, with a strong focus using EMDR & multisystemic behavioral therapy techniques. We will develop concrete goals to shape how we approach therapy, and how we measure success.
