About

I am currently accepting new clients! Age 10 - Adult. I take a person centered approach and meet each client right where they are. I believe each person is unique and worth listening to. I work with children, teens, and adults to gain healthy coping skills and strategies toward reaching their potential. Whether it is difficulty with anxiety, depression, ADHD, Autism, or disordered eating, I have a passion for listening and learning about each client so that we can work together toward a calmer, connected, and positive sense of wellbeing. For more information about the groups I offer, click the "groups" tab next to the "about" tab.
I work as part of a multidisciplinary practice - ILLUMII Pathfinding Group. As part of a group like this I have the advantage of getting to work with a variety of professionals to support you and/or your child. I am trained in a variety of therapeutic techniques and tend to combine several in order to meet your specific needs and goals.
It can be stressful to know what to do when life gets hard. I am here to help - and I know that with the right tools, a trusting client/counselor relationship we can build on your strengths and work through vulnerabilities. I believe each client is capable of living a fulfilling life and reaching their fullest potential. Look forward to hearing from you!
