Welcome! I am a Licensed Professional Counselor who specializes in working with young children, teenagers, and families. Children and teenagers often express themselves through behavior rather than words, and I use a variety of creative, play, and activity-based techniques to connect with my clients throughout the counseling process. I believe that counseling should be individualized for each person and will tailor interventions based on individual interests and strengths. My goal is to help children and families learn more effective ways to manage difficult feelings, improve communication, and create stronger bonds.

We as human beings desire to be known, to love and to be loved. Often times, our attempts to give and receive the love we long for becomes tangled in a web of our past mistakes or the mistakes of others, leaving us feeling alone, arguing with our spouse, overwhelmed with anxiety, extreme sadness and hopelessness, and facing life circumstances we feel powerless to overcome. Counseling is a great opportunity to begin the process of handling these paralyzing issues in a safe environment. Seeking out help requires courage and pursuing counseling can be a scary process, so congratulations on taking the first step towards change.

I'm sure you've heard the phrase, "You have to love yourself before you can love someone else?" - Well that's probably true and a great idea, but how do we actually do that?!? I work with clients to build skills around being more compassionate to themselves. As an act of self-love, we learn to set boundaries to protect ourselves, while doing so with kindness for others. Part of this process often involves healing wounds and trauma of our past, learning to listen to our bodies, and use our bodies as a resource for soothing and grounding awareness.

Adoption Therapists
In recent years, psychologists have begun to investigate how adopted children and their adoptive families navigate their lives together. In an attempt to help children who have been adopted adjust and thrive in a new home, and to understand why problems may arise, studies look at the genetic as well as both prenatal and postnatal environmental influences on the development of children who have been adopted.
