I see clients of any age, however, I focus largely on play therapy with children and their families as it is a growing passion of mine.
If you are looking for a therapist who is present, genuine, and offers a caring and therapeutic space, then we might be a match. I love working with clients who are brand new to therapy and might feel a bit nervous. And clients who have been in therapy previously and may already know what they want out of the experience. Wherever you are on your journey, my mission is to meet you right where you are and walk alongside you to achieve the goals and dreams you have, or perhaps work to develop them altogether. I am also trained in Brainspotting which can be especially powerful for clients with a history of trauma.

I have 20+ years providing social work services to children, adults, and families in a variety of settings.
It takes courage to seek out professional help. Good therapy gives clients the ability to recognize their inherent strengths and the healing possibility in their situations. My goal is to create a supportive, therapeutic environment where clients can begin to understand their feelings while discovering the barriers limiting their full potential.

I am a dedicated therapist who provides empathy, compassion, and humor in individual therapy sessions for children, teenagers, and young adults. I am passionate about working with individuals who have experienced trauma that arises as depression, anxiety, and behavior difficulties. Childhood experiences often continue to influence our lives as we transition into adolescence and adulthood. Clients that I work with tend to have difficulties with asserting boundaries, experience low self-esteem, adversity to stress, and perfectionistic tendencies. I welcome you to give space for you or your child to process life experiences.

Are you stuck? Have you tried the traditional paths of medication and therapy and been unsatisfied with the outcome? Would you like to address the root cause and directly train your brain to become more efficient and effective? I am a registered nurse who worked in the hospital providing direct patient care for 20 years. I have witnessed the debilitating effect that dysregulated nervous systems have on patient's mental and physical well being. Traditional treatments of medication and therapy alone may not be sufficent for addressing brain dysregulation.
