Mental health impacts each of us differently, making things even more important to not compare or judge how each of us feel and respond to life’s stressors. One of the most rewarding components of my job is truly meeting each client in their defined “time of need”. During your therapy journey, we spend time exploring your emotions, thoughts and behaviors, increasing your self-awareness and “tweaking” the tools to utilize in managing your emotions healthier.

I am passionate and committed to serving children ages 3-10 experiencing a variety of mental health needs. My goal is to help children and their parents make connections between difficult behaviors and their underlying causes, and help them implement interventions that fit and work well for the family. I work from a person centered approach, providing strength-based care to help children and families address challenges in a way that meets each person’s unique needs. I also believe that play is the language of children, and use both directive and non-directive play therapy techniques to address struggles and difficult topics.

It is often difficult to explain exactly what therapy is and to best describe a therapist's approach. I like to think of therapy as looking at what has scraped you up emotionally, cleaning out that wound, and then healing so you can live a healthier and happier life. As to my approach clients, parents, and coworkers have described me as honest, kind, compassionate, nonjudgmental, interpersonal, solution focused, collaborative, and someone who will call you on your crap.

There are times in our lives when we need help. Life experiences require us to make the decision to seek guidance from outside our immediate family and friends. Counseling can provide much needed support and intervention in times of crises or with chronic issues that last a lifetime. Don't consider it a weakness but a strength to take that step to be the best possible individual or family you can be.

While I've worked with a wide spectrum of clients over the years the best fit client in my practice is a person between 0-25 who has difficulty with anxiety and/or relationships whether that is family or intimate in nature. Goals related to these difficulties are often managing anxiety, increasing coping skills, improving family relationships, and processing trauma if present.

The Journey of life is one that is often filled with both moments of joy and moments of sorrow. Unfortunately for some, these moments of sorrow are either endured alone or leave couples and family members feeling as if there are no options. As a therapist I feel honored to have the opportunity to offer assistance to individual, couples, and families who are feeling stuck in the sorrows of life. And to not only present options to the struggles of life, but to also walk alongside your journey of life.

I think of therapy as a compassionate collaboration. Clients and I form a partnership in which we work together to not only change behavior, but to understand why we continue to make the same mistakes. We also develop a "roadmap" to avoid future problems by learning to spot "red flags" that may trigger old behaviors. Learning new coping skills and strengthening old ones are an intregal part of this process.

I am passionate about helping children to feel safe, to know that they are heard and understood, and to live their best life using the language of play. The use of Adlerian play therapy allows children to communicate in a safe and comfortable way that allows me as a therapist to better understand the challenges that they are facing and to help them to develop skills for navigating those challenges. My areas of interest include working with children and adolescents who have experienced trauma—including those who have been involved in the Child Protection system—behavioral challenges, and life transitions.
