About

Are you feeling disconnected from the people around you? Frustrated with problematic behaviors that you cannot seem to change? Tired of being paralyzed and held back by anxiety? Counseling can be an opportunity to enrich your life, gain deeper personal understanding, and make meaningful changes. My therapeutic style is warm, supportive, and collaborative. I can work with you to reach your goals in a way that empowers and instills hope. Together we can find the tools that work best for your life, so that you can continue to experience progress and fulfillment long after our counseling relationship has come to a close.
I provide individual and family therapy to children, adolescents, and adults. I am passionate about working in areas of trauma, loss, behavioral challenges, emotional regulation, communication, addictions, anxiety, depression, life transitions, and childhood and adolescent challenges. I meet my clients where they are at in life, and I treat each client as a unique individual.
I have specialized training in trauma treatment. I use brainspotting, IFS, and progressive counting, which are therapeutic techniques designed to help people deal with traumatic experiences and loss. I am also trained in collaborative and proactive solutions which is a model used to work with children and adolescents experiencing behavioral challenges.
