As a Licensed Professional Counselor, Board Certified Art Therapist, and certified in Trauma Focused CBT, I like to focus on clients' strengths and enjoy using metaphors in the artwork and conversation.
I have a passion for working with teens and young adults who are exploring their identity and hold a safe and supportive space for LGBTQ+ affirming counseling. I work well with teens and young adults who experience anxiety, depression, disordered eating and self-harm behaviors. I take a Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), person-centered, trauma informed approach within a social justice frame to support clients in blending the creative and practical so that clients enjoy the process of exploration and can see results in their mood and behaviors.

It may feel overwhelming to reach out for help and to trust someone else with your thoughts and feelings, not to mention your past experiences and hopes and dreams for the future. I understand how challenging it can be to figure out who you are, where you want to go, and how to get there - and how difficult it is to start taking those initial steps toward self-discovery. I believe that the journey is more important than the destination since goals tend to be redefined through the learning that occurs in therapy.

I greatly enjoy utilizing a range of therapeutic interventions, such as Trauma Focused CBT, solution focused therapy, reality therapy and many others.
I began my career in the Human Services field over 22 years ago as a contracted social worker under the Department of Human Services, working with families, couples, and individuals including teenagers and emerging adults in Treatment Foster Care and Juvenile Probation system. It is through these programs that I enhanced my knowledge and skills as a counselor providing emotional assistance to those struggling with barriers and challenges in life. I have learned just how impactful past and present traumatic experiences affect and shape the individual.

With 25 years of experience in behavior health services, I can create a compassionate and supportive environment to begin working with parts of you that have become stuck by using effective, trauma focused , and evidence based treatments such as EMDR therapy, internal family systems, motivational interviewing, and cognitive behavior therapy.
Many of us become stuck at different stages in our lives for myriad reasons. Its possible you may or may not be aware of what events may have led to this which can manifest in mental health and/or substance use difficulties. Examples may range from traumatic events such as abuse, neglect, death of loved ones; oft under emphasized circumstances such as daily stress, breakups, loss of employment; or broader systemic issues such as racism, poverty, and other types of discrimination. If you are looking to identify causes and solutions to help all parts of you move forward, this is a good place to start.

What often brings people to therapy are troubles with unknown parts of themselves. I strive to create a warm, collaborative experience through which to encounter and more deeply understand these dimensions. I’ve found it is through this understanding that one can move from suffering toward a more expansive sense of possibility.

Are you confused about the direction of your life? You have experienced many ups and downs causing you to be unsure about trusting yourself? I know exactly what you're feeling; procrastinating, easily agitated, isolating and not knowing who you are. Learning about who you are at the core can be terrifying, but I don't want you go through this experience alone. Holistic practices can assist with becoming more present and regulated while letting go of false identities and beliefs we may have.
