Announcement icon I am currently meeting client needs with sessions via in office, video chat, and phone calls. Please reach out if you are needing support!
Every person has their own unique path to walk in life. Sometimes we need people to walk with us to guide, support, validate and encourage . I would see it as a privilege to walk beside you on your journey. It's difficult to reach out and it takes courage to seek positive change. I'm here to help anyone experiencing life transitions, trauma, anxiety, depression, grief, relationship conflict and more.
I have a heart to help people of all ages. I am primarily person centered yet goal directed. Everyone is unique, so I utilize a holistic approach of evidence based treatments including play therapy, cognitive behavioral therapy, spiritual/strength based therapy and eye movement desensitization and reprocessing (EMDR).
I am trained in play therapy, certified in Prepare/Enrich (helping couples start out strong), and EMDR certified. I enjoy working with people of all ages who are seeking improvement. My office includes a playroom and Alice, a therapy dog in training!
