The mission of Starfish Family Counseling, PLLC, is best described through a story. The Starfish Story tells of a child walking along a beach after a terrible storm which washed up thousands of starfish onto the beach. The child is throwing starfish back into the water, when someone admonishes the child that they cannot save them all, cannot really make a difference. The child responds by picking up another starfish and saying "it makes a difference to this one." Together we will explore your goals, strengths and most importantly that you, your child, your relationships deserve healing. You matter.
I worked in an eating disorders clinic for 7 years. Since 2018 I have been certified in and practicing play therapy. I enjoy utilizing creative and expressive arts techniques for clients of all ages. Additionally I have a special interest in women's issues, I am an ally, and I strive to create a safe, sex positive space to discuss concerns without judgement.
Please feel free to contact me with any questions through Psychology Today or Headway.co
