About

I am an eclectic therapist, meaning I do not subscribe to any one therapeutic modality as I believe the therapeutic process is fluid and as a clinician, I must be the same. I help you manage depression, anxiety, ADHD, adjustment disorder, grief/loss, PTSD, bipolar disorder, personality disorders, children and adolescents navigating the difficulties of adjusting to parent's divorcing and behavioral issues such as oppositional defiance and conduct issues. In an effort to meet my clients where they are, I will take the time needed to examine, with you, the core issues surrounding the problem and assist in developing solutions from that ground work.
I specialize in healing work designed to address trauma and I work at the pace my client is able to manage. My specialties include working with survivors of childhood sexual abuse, human sex trafficking, and domestic violence. I use non-traditional therapeutic methods such as music, art, and mindfulness practices; while building the therapeutic relationship.
I work with children and adolescents; individually, in groups, and with families. In addition, I provide counseling for couples just starting out, (premarital) as well as those who have been together for years and are looking to keep the fires of friendship, romance, sexual desires burning.
