When working with children, I strive to create a calm and inviting environment where children and adolescents feel safe enough to discuss trauma or any other concerns impacting their daily life. I believe therapy is a very personal experience that requires a non-judgmental, genuine, and compassionate relationship between client and therapist. I understand that building a truly effective, collaborative relationship must include transparency and openness. In therapy, I understand the connection between physiology, environment, and mental health.

We choose to collaborate with the client, be accessible with text support in between sessions, and take the whole person into consideration when working with them (ie lifestyle, trauma , sleep, nutrition, medication management) etc.
We go to doctors for check-ups, but we sometimes leave our mental health for last on our list:) I believe therapy should be fun and enlightening, highlighting what strengths you already possess to help you with life's barriers. Combined with my education, humor and understanding of human behavior, your goals can be met in a brief, focused amount of time.

I work with survivors of trauma , and help to guide couples working towards a stronger connection.
I have a deep passion for community development, culture diversity and human connection. In my experience my clients know themselves better than anyone, they are their own best resource when it comes to choosing the right treatment for them. I see our time together as a joint venture, our knowledge combined creates the solutions and tools needed to uncover patterns and emotions they may not even be aware of. I know that no single approach is the right one for every individual. My role as a therapist is to support you to make choices that empower you, and help you explore and resolve your current predicaments, or diagnosis.

I use treatment strategies that are proven to help an individual heal from and manage trauma , anxiety, ADHD, depression, substance abuse, co-occurring disorders, and other mental health challenges.
Who are we kidding? Life is crazy and we all need someone in our corner! You are a unique person, and your challenges are too. I'm here to help you make sense of the craziness. I grew up frequently moving between my parents and family, and untimely ended up in the foster care system. With substance abuse in my family system, being a child and adult child of a dysfunctional family is something with which I am very familiar. I decided to pursue my education and help others instead of perpetuating the toxic family system.
