Life is filled with ups, downs, struggles, and changes. If your child is having difficulty coping with these challenges, there is help! As a Licensed Professional Counselor and Registered Play Therapist , I work with the individual and family to build on their personal strengths, develop problem-solving skills, implement creative solutions, and maximize their potential. My professional work experience includes providing individual therapy, group therapy, and mental health services in community agency and non-profit settings, as well as public schools. I have over ten years of counseling experience working with children, adolescents, adults, and families.
My passion is to help children and adolescents that are experiencing emotional, behavioral, and relational difficulties find hope, healing and improve their well-being. My goal is to provide a safe, non-judgemental environment which fosters therapeutic rapport and maximizes the client's positive change and growth.
Through an eclectic therapeutic approach tailored to fit each individual's personal needs, I can assist clients in expressing and working through their difficult feelings, thoughts, and experiences. I aspire to provide my clients and their families the tools they need to be successful in life and thrive.
