I graduated from Aurora University in Illinois in 2008 with an MSW (Masters in Social Work). I have experience with child-centered play therapy through my work in early intervention and treatment for autism spectrum disorder and children with disabilities. I incorporate the CBT (Cognitive Behavioral Therapy) framework as well as integrative health practices such as mindfulness techniques and yoga through my work in school-based and mental health counseling. I use a strengths-based perspective with families addressing the rewards and challenges of parenting. Play is how children process the world, and I love using play to heal.

I take a client-directed approach to care. This means that we set goals together, you set your own priorities, and we talk about how to use your strengths to get you to a place where you want to be. It can be difficult to take those first steps in asking for help, and I acknowledge that it takes a bit of courage, and honor that.

I do not discriminate on the basis of race, color, religion (creed), gender, gender expression, age, national origin (ancestry), disability, marital status, sexual orientation, or military status, in any of its activities or operations. If you think we might be a good match, please reach out to me.
