I desire to assist individuals who have had their hearts broken, pick up the pieces and successfully mend them back stronger than ever! I utilize cognitive behavioral therapy, interpersonal, strengths-based model with advanced clinical training in the areas of EMDR, sand tray, mindfulness, and play therapy .
Are you in the place in your life where you just feel done? You feel alone. Every relationship ends in disaster and heartbreak. Whether it is a romantic relationship or a friendship you just seem to pick the wrong people. You often feel disposable and rejected because all the people you want end up leaving you. You hear about people that have found their people and you wonder when will it be your day. When will you find the right relationships that bring you the quality relationships you dream of having. You feel too weak and paralyzed to try again only to find more heartbreak.

My practice is based on the premise that what we think directly affects what we feel, which in turn effects how we act. The work we do together will focus very much on this process and personal goal attainment. When helpful, you can expect to engage in some expressive arts and play therapy sessions that are designed to help those who struggle with verbal expression of thoughts and feelings, as well as to encourage insight and personal growth through a creative means.

My specialties are play therapy for children ages 3+, teenagers, young adults, women and parents.
I am currently accepting teen and adult clients via telehealth. Staying true to ourselves may be one of the hardest but most important tasks we encounter as we mature into adults. Family, social needs, achievements, anxiety, depression, and many other factors often get in the way of our ability to express ourselves in our fullest capacity. During our time in counseling, you will get to know your truest self, and practice expressing yourself authentically with curiosity and mindfulness.

When working with young children, I utilize a Child-Centered Play Therapy approach.
I view counseling as an opportunity for self-exploration, growth, and healing. My top priority is to build a trusting relationship while creating a space where clients feel safe, respected and heard. I use an integrative approach, drawing predominately from Person-Centered modalities and techniques while utilizing Trauma Invested/Informed Therapy, Child-Centered Play Therapy , and Child Parent Relationship Training (CPRT). I truly believe that every client is unique, varying in strengths, struggles, and personalities. Therefore, I tailor each treatment plan to meet each client where they are, in the present moment.

Some of my other areas of expertise are grief/trauma and crisis counseling, career counseling, play therapy for young children and applied behavioral modification for those with special needs.
Facing life's challenges and transitions should not be done alone. When you encounter issues arising from lifecycle changes, relational turmoil or any other challenges that invoke a crisis or grief, it is important to have genuine and empathetic support to guide you without passing judgment. As a spouse of a retired veteran, I have over 20 years of experience adapting to the lifestyle challenges that the military community encounters. I have helped many families successfully cope with the military lifestyle, relational struggles and raise special children.
