Announcement icon What a very sad, anxious & uncertain time, right? To support you - I am offering primarily tele-therapy & office visits (as necessary).
I value every encounter with an individual. I am grateful to be in a field, as a Therapist, where I can enjoy divine connections daily - thanks to the incredible courage of people. Specifically, thanks to a “yes” to the journey of growth, healing, and one's readiness to get "unstuck." Although I believe that the therapy office is a place where much of an individual’s healing and recovery from life challenges takes place, I also understand that the real tests happen outside of those four walls. I want to help you to prepare for those tests, cope, build healthy relationships, and affirm yourself in the positive.
I am an experienced professional equipped to help clients as young as four years old to address concerns related to depression, grief/loss, anxiety, stress, trauma (specialty area), life transitions, and self-esteem. I have experience using art, music, and play therapy along with talk therapy to process thoughts, feelings, and behaviors.
I have learned that whether a person was four, 60, or any age in between, the common denominator has always been the desire to be listened to. It would be my pleasure to learn about you – your past, your present, and your future aspirations. My approach is energetic, non-judgmental, culturally competent, and with your best interest in mind.
