I am an Licensed Professional Counselor and Marriage and Family Therapist with special training in the attachment theory-based modality of Emotionally Focused Couples Therapy. I believe in building a relationship with clients where they feel safe and accepted, yet challenged to grow. Through this therapeutic relationship, individuals, couples, and families can heal and develop new perspectives and practices they can use throughout their entire lives. I utilize an array of techniques, including psycho-education, genograms, role plays, art therapy, and communication exercises, but I feel the most important aspect to therapy is developing a unique relationship with each client.

I am a licensed professional counselor and a registered art therapist. I have worked in a variety of clinical settings. As an art therapist, I strive to find a creative way to connect with clients, and support them in developing more effective means of communication, self-expression, independent coping skills, growth, and self-esteem. I also utilize EMDR to assist in treating the impact of various traumatic life events and beliefs. I value an eclectic, trauma informed approach, and believe that a unique plan is necessary and important in helping each individual meet their own goals.
I’m an empath, a learner, and a clinician who seeks to earn each client’s trust and establish a safe space for them to set and meet their goals. I'm a Licensed Professional Counselor with experience treating depression, anxiety, PTSD, addiction, relationship issues, and other concerns clients face. My approach to counseling is person-centered and combines existential therapy, cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), and dialectical behavior therapy (DBT). While I tend to view problems through these particular lenses, I most value the therapeutic relationship.
If you are finding yourself in need of therapy then chances are searching for a new therapist may be feeling a bit daunting right now. Whether you are going through a significant life situation or if your distress seems to have caught you by surprise, I thought it would be helpful to share some highly likely topics of exploration that can be expected during our work together as a means to seeing the change you want to see - no matter what your desires for therapy may be: self-compassion; core emotions; boundaries; core beliefs about yourself; autonomy; vulnerability; self-worth; healthy relationships of all types; strengths.
There is a time to carry on, but there is a time to find a different way. You are tired of simply going through the motions of life. You find it hard to shake those feelings of worry and sadness. You feel overwhelmed by change and all the decisions in front of you. Your relationships feel hard and complicated. You provide so much for others at work and home that you don’t have anything left for yourself. I am a compassionate therapist who offers a warm and supportive space. I believe that personal growth is possible for everyone and that therapy is an effective strategy in that process.
In therapy, building a relationship of trust, openness, and comfort is of the utmost importance to healing and growth. This relationship empowers one to practice how it feels to authentically ‘show up’ with others and with one's self. What I strive to create with each individual is this type of energizing relationship, drawing on mindfulness and the here-and-now.
Whether you are struggling with relationship difficulties, life transitions, issues at work, or feeling overrun by your own thoughts, you do not have to face your struggles alone. I use humor and a holistic, strengths-based approach to foster a warm, safe, and trusting environment with my clients.
Our unique stories equip us with specific challenges and sometimes with problematic coping skills. When burdened with depression, anxiety, difficult situations, or other struggles, it can seem impossible to escape those challenges. Sometimes our very identity comes into question and it takes tremendous courage and strength to face such existential questions. The healing process involves recognizing our potential to overcome challenges, and to begin the process of building holistic contentment in all parts of our life. Seeking help can be one of the most difficult parts of this process.
We all have times in our lives were we could benefit from some additional support, be it to manage daily stress or deal with new challenges. I have been a licensed therapist for the past two years with five years total experience providing services to youth, adolescents, and adults with autism, schizophrenia, bipolar, depression, anxiety, trauma, and LGBTQ issues. I have delivered services in residential, in-home, virtual, office, and school settings.
