"Love and Trust, in the space between what's said and what's heard in our life, can make all the difference in the world." Fred Rogers. Sometimes life presents us with challenges, adjustments, and opportunities for growth, all we need is someone to hear what we are saying in a new way. I am here to help you navigate these moments, in the way you desire. Together we will work to ensure that you are truly listened to, in a way that elicits effective change, growth, and healing.

As a relationship-oriented therapist with training in Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, Play Therapy,Trauma Focused-Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, & Child-Parent Psychotherapy, I work with infants, children, adolescents, families, & adults. My experience is with individuals experiencing disordered eating, trauma, violence, sexual assault, & behavioral issues

At Thrive Counseling Center, we are dedicated to helping children and families heal from a range of life experiences, in therapeutically sensitive ways that are tailored to specifically fit each unique client and their individual circumstances.
