I aim to establish warm, collaborative therapeutic relationships with my clients. I also believe it is important to communicate with children through their natural language of play. It is important to me to create a comfortable and safe environment for each client or family. I strive to empower my clients to use their own strengths and individualized capabilities to reach their goals and find balance. I deem it important to consider individuals to be part of a family unit when working with families. I think it's beneficial to remain creative with each person / family.

I have the most experience with children ages 6 +, adolescents and women. I focus on relationships, bereavement / loss, anxiety, trauma, new parents, attachment / bonding, domestic violence, career/ life transitions and mindfulness. Additionally, I have experience with anxiety, depression, ADHD, oppositional defiance behavior, school issues, body image issues, anger management and coping skills.

I especially concentrate on guiding clients through the journey of altering negative thoughts and replacing them with positive thoughts to achieve effective changes. My therapeutic approach is integrative utilizing play therapy, cognitive behavioral, client-centered therapy and somatic experience models.
